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!
I'm not a big card maker but there are times when I'd much rather make one than buy one. End of the school year is one of those occasions. Being a teacher myself, I find it much more heart-warming to receive a handmade gift than a bunch of flowers. Following that idea, I made a quick card.
I have used papers, stencil and a stamp from Scrapbooking.gr – an online scrap supplies shop that I work with. Paints and always are from Tattered Angels.
I hope you enjoy watching the creative process
This is probably one of the ‘flattest’ layouts I have ever made but I wanted to show off the papers and stickers from the Kaisercraft ‘Keepsake’ collection that I received from Scrapbooking.gr. It was also the first time, I have scribbled and written on the background to add to the paper instead of using my usual stencil and texture paste method.
The other idea was to also use the collection in a completely different way to the 3D Summer Bird project made the day before. From bright and summery to toned-down and vintage.
I hope you like it!

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:
