Good morning all! Its Christmas card club today - I told my lovely mum the theme was Carol singers - and followed that myself - but apparently the theme was anything goes! Ooops! Nevermind - here's what we did!
I used diecuts from Tim Holtz and some gelli prints from my lovely new round plate...
There's actually 4 of them but you get the idea!!!
Hello there! I can't believe its already been a week since I went to a fabulous Aall and Create class with Jo Rice in Carnforth - it was such a lovely day - we made a folder from scratch and used Aall and create stamps that we already owned to decorate it. Here's mine which I was super pleased with - I am going to use it to store my smaller sets of aall and create stamps!
As always it was the company that really made the day for me - lovely time indeed!
Hi there - I am over at the Chocolate Baroque blog today with samples from the August shows where you will have seen some beautiful house stamps. Here are the samples I am showing today ...I will explain how I made them over there! Hope to see you over there!
Hello there - I am posting for Countyview challenges today - its my challenge - under the sea. My inspirational post today involves a picture of my Penny as a mermaid. She has always loved mermaids and had the opportunity at Center Parcs this summer to be one - and the photo that they took is the source of my inspiration for my project.
Having fussy cut the Penny mermaid out I started a canvas using another paperartsy stencil and some opaque paste.
Once dry I used paperartsy paints and cut and dry foam to colour the background.
Hello there! How are you? Its the first of September - wow - scary - especially since I'll be back to work tomorrow! Yikes! How fast did July and August go? Good thing though is that we have a new challenge at Countryview Crafts and this month its my theme and I have chosen 'Under the Sea' ...every time I say that I start singing the Disney song! Anyway - I would like to see your underwater themed makes. I decided to make a canvas - its A4 in size and I used a new paperartsy-large-stencil and also another stencil plus opaque texture paste.
Next I applied lots of paints with my fingers - oh I love getting messy!!!
