CRAFT challenge #570 – Baby/Family

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Morgan’s Art World.

This week I chose to do something a little different, it’s not often enough I get to do a mixed media piece. The image I had to work with was these beautiful flowers which I printed 4 times and coloured with Chameleon pens.

For the background I took a piece of sturdy grey board, painted it with a base coat of gesso, then began ripping and sticking down bits of paper and flowers all with different shades and textures. Then to tone it down and bring it all together I painted over the whole thing with watered down gesso. I then added the decorative heart strip which was die cut out of thin grey board again painted with gesso. Then onto the board I stuck my corners and embellished with some flowers in texture paste.

Before the gesso
After the gesso

To finish and give the theme of family I chose two wooden pieces which were in my stash – “Family” and “Cherish”. Both of these were painted with gesso as well and stuck to the centre of the mixed media piece.

I hope you like it! If you did leave me a message and follow me. Thanks for reading x

CRAFT challenge #569 – Wedding Anniversary

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

This digital image made me smile. It makes me think that some people are made to be together and work together. These love birds certainly seem to be working together.

I’ve coloured this image with Chameleon pens and then added a stamped sentiment and stamped corner flourish. I cut the topper to fit onto a scalloped DL card blank and rounded the corners. With the mauve chameleon pen I edged the topper to give it a little bit of definition.

I hope that you like this pretty card, and I hope the special couple like it too.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 9th September 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is Oddball Art.

big eyed mad hatter

This image was great fun to colour! I used my Chameleon pens and then found some distress inks which coordinated to make a background. The block stamp I’ve used in the background is one with a clock which I felt was appropriate and fitted with the mad hatter theme.

I hope you’ll join out challenge thank you for looking x

Dream Valley Challenge #232 – dry or wet embossing

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

This card to me is simple but stylish, it includes a dry embossing for the background. I used an embossing folder to create the background which I then wiped over with a glitter paste. It just gives a bit of sparkle and lifts the card.

I also love this typewriter from ADU I’ve used it before and it classy and can be colour themed to suit your project. I hope you like this too.

CRAFT challenge #567 – Back to school

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Cute and Crafty Mommy.

Thos time our theme was “Back to School” but actually with Covid our children haven’t been thee and didn’t get a chance to say thank you to their teachers so I felt we should take this opportunity to say thank you to the teachers. Just like the NHS they have been there for our children. Eve. If it’s from home.

So thank you teachers!
