I have used Stencil girl Trio Of Thorns stencil and Colourcraft Aztec Eco Metallic paints. The apron is from Canvas Corp.
I haven’t made any tags for a while and when I saw ‘Alice In Wonderland’ (I looooove ‘Alice in Wonderland’!!!) acetate sheets in scrapbooking.gr, I knew straight away that I’d use them for a set of acetate tags.
I decided to follow the ‘cards’ colour theme and stick to black, white and red.
I find acetate great to work with mainly due to the fact that you can see all the layers under it. It also gives off the feel of being delicate while it is not.
Here’s the tutorial for you:
I love playing with Brusho powders as you can never 100% predict the final result.
Today, I decided to go one step further in my play and use them on a waxed background (it created beautiful colourful droplets!!!) and mixed with the Brusho Thickener (it became a see-through glaze which I run through a stencil). All this topped up with some floral die-cuts with Architextures papers and … a wild garden it is!
Thanks for stopping by!
In this month’s package from Scrapbooking.gr, I received a set of Kaisercraft goodies: a 3D Bird wall hanging and ‘Keepsake’ collection bundle of 12×12 papers.
My mind was racing… what do I make? what do I make?
I started by altering the wall hanging – the weathered white wood paper looks so realistic glued onto the MDF elements! With layers of stencilled textures and ripped stickers from the paper collection, building up the background was so much fun. I topped it all up with sprinkles of Tattered Angels chalkboard mists.
Here’s the result…
I have made a video tutorial to show you the process. I hope you enjoy it.
And some close-ups to feast your eyes on 🙂
See you next time!!!
I have been invited as a guest designer to play with metal and fabric embellishments from Xanderous Craft Stash and this is my second project for them – a small canvas on a deep frame.
To create the background I used Brusho powders but to create the spotty design I drew all over the canvas with a Brusho Wax Crayon to stop the pigment from soaking into the fabric. After sprinkling the powders all over the canvas, I sprayed them with water which created loads of colourful water drops – I left them to air dry as using a heat-gun would have pushed all together and ruined the effect.
You can see the whole background and close-ups of the project in the slideshow below:
So… I might have told you about the Artful Days Goodie Box before…
Let me tell you again – It’s full of crafty goodiness (does the word even exist?)!!!
I had to use up everything that came in June box. Yes, even the wrapping tissue!
Would you like to see evidence? Here goes…
Full of flowers of all sorts, this box is totally amazeballs!
Here is how I made my wall hanging – everything apart from paints (Tattered Angels), stencil (Tim Holtz) and stamps, tinting base (DecoArt) and texture paste is from Artful Days. The hanging box used as a base is also from the goodie box!
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon!
May at Wyzwania Nie-Kartkowe brings a luggage themed challenge – it should be the main focus of the project.
I used numerous 7gypsies Architextures elements: 6×6 artboard, Tall Base – Chicken Wire, Junque Pack – Cabin and cut-outs from Architextures 8×8 paper pad. All that sprinkled with some Tattered Angels mists and… voila!
