Faux Wood

A few weeks back I posted this amazing photo of a piece I was working on using the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint System in Weathered Birch Fine Wood as I was so impressed with the finish compared to the real thing.

Canvas Corp have used my tutorial on their blog to demonstrate how easy it is to use the kit. You can find the full tutorial on the Creative Studio Blog  .

Happy Friday

A Simple Water Colour Card

With the water colour look being so popular right now I thought I’d create something a little bit different on this card using ink sprays by Tattered Angels and a stencil. The ink sprays gave me a much brighter colour and they layered over each other beautifully.

What’s been going on in May?

Good question, very good question. I’ve not written here since April and that’s a shame but honestly May has been a bit like a whirlwind.

I’ve not been sitting around painting my toenails although it was very tempting a couple of weeks ago when the weather became so nice I actually put some sandals on. No, apart from digging, alot of digging in the garden, I’ve been busy designing some new stamps this time for me and my very own brand which has been very very exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. It’s a big thing to try and get it just right and it took a long time before I’d actually sign them off as finished. I can’t wait now to see how they work.

Meanwhile I did put together a new mini album using the envelopes I received in the ATC swap a while back with Canvas Corp Brands. I’d been meaning to use the envelopes for some time as to me they are just as beautiful as the ATC’s themselves.

I’ll be showing the inside pages soon.

For now at least, have a good week.

Hello Spring

Last week was a particularly draining week emotionally but this week I’m ready to pick myself up, leave that behind and move on. Signs of Spring are all around now and the weather too is giving us some really lovely days to get out and tidy the garden. It’s nice to see the covers come off the furniture at last and we’ve even cranked up the bbq.

It was so nice to open my journal again this week after what has been a long few weeks. I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it until I started laying down some papers and glue.

ATC Swap With Canvas Corp

It’s been many years since I hosted and swapped ATC’s. I used to love these little pieces of art so much. What’s not to love? They’re quick to make, not at all intimidating in size and great fun to swap.

When Christine from Canvas Corp asked me if I’d organize a swap for the team I jumped at it, take me back to the days of real post please and making art in mini form.

I gathered a group together and gave them all a posting list. They  had no idea who would be sending to who to keep it a lovely surprise. It was so lovely to read the chatter and see how everyone was getting on via our Facebook group.

Back in my own studio I set to work creating my master board which I cut into ATC’s.  They had to reflect my personal style so of course I chose to use my favourite colours with a touch of mixed media thrown in.

A Quick Rocker Card

baby card

I say quick but in the end it turned out to be a bit trickier than I thought. To make the image balance exactly upright I had to keep moving the little peg around until the phrase in the centre sat perfectly horizontally.  Thank goodness for the little peg!

All of the papers are from Canvas Corp and are from their Baby Collection and as I’m a lover of fussy cutting I had no problem in cutting out the cute pram from the sheet.

The card is now on it’s way to a very special new family member.

Going all Halloweeny

I know it’s only Wednesday but I had to get this in before it was too late. I saw and bought these letters ages ago but wasn’t quite sure how I’d decorate them. I have some of the Haunt It papers by Canvas Corp  and these were absolutely perfect for adding that quirky touch.

Think Pink for October

October is Breast Cancer awareness month and everything is turning pink as a result. Canvas Corp  very kindly sent members of the Crew a little goody bag of pink papers, pretty bits and paints to create something to inspire and motivate others as well as help to bring this issue to the front and keep the awareness going.

The contents of my goody bag were gorgeous, all pink, frilly and down right cute. I had the idea to create a canvas of some sort to hang above the desk so after a bit of thought and a cup of tea I decided to just go for it and see what came out.

pink materialsFor the canvas base I covered everything with some music score paper then added a coat of gesso.
