Quicky post .......

Hi Peeps
Just a quicky showing what Me and Linda got up to on Weds apart from getting covered in paint from the gelli plates

I found this faux altered book on a crafty friends blog sometime ago and tweaked it and have since made quite a few so I showed linda and we both made one in the afternoon...

This is for my nearly DIL Kates birthday ..........

Happy Campers Challenge No.22 Show us your Flowers


Hey Peeps

Its Challenge Day over at Happy Campers Challenge Blog

Our theme this time is
Show Us Your Flowers

Here's my contribution


I've done the 'Caught in Crystal' technique but with a twist

I love the effect you get but I hate the stink of the floor polish in my little craft cave
and couldn't be bothered taking it all down stairs to do on dining table
So I thought well so long as it dry's clear would it matter......
 soooo I've used
gloss acrylic medium instead and I'm really pleased with the results


Mix a good dollop of medium with water to make it runnier, I prob used half and half but of course this will depend on which medium you use
I also added a dollop of Liqutex glass bead medium

I stamped, embossed and coloured from the back using acrylic paint
splodged my mixture on then sprinkled mica and glitter on
 layered my tissue splodged it down and spritz a little water to help
I also dripped re-inkers on to the tissue which gave a fabby veined look
 and highlighted the crinkles in the tissue
I left it to dry over night before mounting with PVA and making the card

Stuff I've used
Indigo Blu - Anemone  Corner
Pebeo paints
Gloss acrylic medium from the works
Imagination Crafts micas
Diamond glitter
mix of dye based re-inkers
Gold mirri card
Bits from my stash

Thanks for looking

Hidden from view........ my make from Hels Workshop

Morning Peeps
 
I've finally got round to showing you all this make from Hels workshop in Southampton.
I had a fabby messy day with Pauline and Linda and all the other lovely ladies
 
We used a lot of distress inks and paints and worked on layering up and getting used to how it behaves when wet dry etc of course I had very mucky paws hee hee
 
Sorry the pics don't really pick up all the background details and vibrancy
if you haven't had a play with the distress paints yet
 you are really missing out .....they are most fabby
 
 
 
Cover showing a drippy runny technique
 
Lots of layers on this one, background stamping distress stains and inks and stencilling with paints
 
 

This and the one underneath are my fave pages tons of layering up with all the distress products and stencil and stamps
