Crafty Play Day .........

Hi Peeps
Apols for not being around much but I had mother here for an extra week after my hols, then the tinterweb went down and also we have had a lot to do around the house .... poor Steve has been knackered I think he needs another holiday ha ha
 
This week on our play date Me and Linda decided to make up some shabby chic/vintage flowers using scraps of material and some crocheted flowers.
 




 
We had a great day as per usual and it was nice to do something a little different for a change ....... I still got mucky paws as I used my hot glue gun and got covered in it ha ha.
 
thanks for looking

Play Day with Mother

Hi Peeps
Sorry my interweb has been playing up so I've been a bit absent since I got back of my hols.
 
Well we had a most fabby time in Cuba ! and mother stayed on after cat sitting so we had a few crafty days and here's what we got up to
 
 

 
 
 

I showed her a technique Hels Sheridan showed me, using all your scraps up on a canvas, although you can use any card/paper as I have. I love this technique you can create some fabulous backgrounds with it. you just layer up your pieces of scraps and seal them all with mod podge or similar then lightly wash over with acrylic paint to 'soften' the images and pull them together tonally.

Stuff I Used
8 x 8 box canvas
Time flies papers from Craftwork Cards
Crafters Workshop Stencil - Art is...
White and black acrylic paint
Tim Holtz Mixed Minis letters
Inka Gold paint
Mod Podge Matt (to glue and seal)
flowers and emblies from my stash

Thanks for looking
