Crafty play day .... Finally




 
Hi peeps,
 
Just a quick post to share what me and Linda made on our last play date. As usual I'm about a fortnight late in sharing ha ha

We both fancied a go at a floating tea cup and the results are below ...
If you fancy a peek at Linda's here's a link. Lindas Blog
 
 

Really easy to do once you've sussed  the floating bit ha ha .... I got steve to Uri Geller an old fork into a Z shape, glued it in place using hot glue and then a little Pinflair glue gel and then I wrapped the fork in twine and proceeded to add my flowers etc. I even made a little nest and an egg to go with my little birdie. 

I found it easier to glue dead central in the saucer to aid balance but if you have a try and it's a bit off kilter try gluing some two pence coins to add a bit of ballast. Seen that tip on Pinterest. 

Thanks for looking

New Stamp sets released!


Hi Peeps,
 
Just sharing a small selection of cards featuring my new stamp range.
 They are now on sale at Personal Impressions under the Sweet Dixie brand,
and should be filtering into your fave craft stores as we speak.
 
 
I produce my designs from my photos, sketches and vintage elements.
There's quite an eclectic mix in this first set, which I hope you find suitable for all occasions.
I try to cram as much on the design plate as possible so you get great value for money
but also enough elements on one plate for a project.
I've kept my samples quite simple to showcase the main images,
so I'm really looking forward to seeing your stunning projects.
I really hope you like them and keep your eyes open for future releases.

A birthday card for MIL

Hi peeps 

another quicky to share of a stamped card I made for Steves mum. 




The stamps are Pollyanna Pickering. As soon as I saw them I bought them, not my usual stuff but just perfect for Vera's cards as she has a Westie. 

I made a mask of the dog and then stamped the background around him and used my watercolours to colour it. 
Then just mat and layered on to a 8x8 card blank

She loved it, which is handy as she'll be seeing lots more of him ha ha

Play day share

Hi peeps
Just a quick post to share a reverse canvas I did when me and Linda had a play day last Thursday. I picked us to do a canvas with a spring theme, as usual we both went in totally different direction from each other, as mine took on a shabby chic look. 

I've used white gesso, stencils with white crackle paste and a bit of modelling paste. I dry brushed with a little bit of brown acrylic then over brushed with white. 


 
 
Then just added my embelies which I'd coloured with a tinge of pink and added white acrylic to 'wash out' the colour and help with the shabby look.
