Happy Birthday Sis

Hi guys, it was my Sisters Birthday yesterday, so now I know she's seen it I can pop it on here, lol

I know my sis loves blue, so I made her a card with some Foamiran flowers in blue 0.6 Foamiran, with navy blue 0.6 foamiran leaves, my daughter bought me some Foamiran for Christmas and these were in the ones she bought me, 

I used the papers by 13 Arts, Cold Day, In The Garden and Until Dawn, love them!! simply distressing the edges on the base card, and tearing into shape the raised up part in the centre, behind the raised up part I used some white Tulle then some Scrapiniec chipboard I had in my stash, 

I used a Memory Box die behind my flowers, then layered up some hand cut flower heads from the paper, my foamiran flowers and leaves, in between I added hints of 13 Arts white branch which I simply cut down and glued in place,

I die cut the flowers out of Lady E design flower 001 die then edged the petals with a darker blue copic pen, this just added a very fine edge to the petals,
the stamens came from 14 Craft bar,

I also made some tiny flowers using the Tiny Flowers die again by Lady E Designs, edging the petals as before,
The Tiny leaves were cut in one of the papers and then I edged them here and there with some 13 Arts silver glitter glue,
The sentiment was a sticker again by 13 Arts from the Rose Field collection which I placed onto a piece of the paper to keep in the theme,

Some gorgeous sparkly sequins finish off the card,

I used the 13 Arts Mood Board as my inspiration, using the colours and textures, thought the branches looked like the snowy branch too, lol

Everlasting Love

Hi guys, I have just discovered Bloo/Mar Designs  gorgeous chip boards and so had to order a few,

The Etsy shop is in the UK too, so that's fab, I got my order beautifully packaged and love the items I ordered, 
I used the heart 001 chip board, his time keeping it in it's natural colour, I teamed it with some blossom style flowers I made using 
lady E Design dies Flower 001, Leaves 002 and Tiny Leaves,

here is a card I've made just because I felt like making it, lol

The Blossom style flowers are made using white Silk Foam and some stamens from my stash, I will have a video of how I made these shortly,
But for now here's some photo's  with a close up of the heart 001 Chip board,

The papers are by 49 and market including the laser cut envelope, I used one of the papers for the tiny leaves too,

I arranged my flowers on some natural Sisal, this helps give some added interest and depth to the card too,
The sentiment is a sticker from 13 Arts - Rose Field,

I also made some buds, which will be shown on the video, 
I finished the card off with some sequins here and there too,

Happy Crafting!!!

Beside The Sea

Hi guys, are you ready for a little bit of Spring or Summer, I love it when the days are warmer and you can enjoy outdoors,
I've seen a few mood boards with some fabulous colours and textures, and these are what I have interpreted from them,

As you know I love to try something new, and so here is my latest mixed media project, I only have bits and bobs for mixed media as I'm fairly new to it so I started with a embroidery hoop which I added some twine too, I got some inspiration off the internet for this idea with the twine, but sorry I can't remember who's) then I added some texture paste around the frame and some on the twine too, when dry I painted them with some  impasto acrylic paints,

I tore some designer papers up then layered them to give a waves affect, and glued these at the base of the project behind the hoop,

On one side of the twine I glued some forest moss, again after the glue set I added a hint of the same paint colours, this gave a good base for the shells to be adhered too,

I added some chip boards to my scene, the lighthouse, seagull and fishing net are by laserowe love and came from Swedish House Crafts,
I painted the chipboard light house and net with white Gesso, when Dry I added some frantage, then went over again on the lighthouse with a thin layer of gesso on the main part and some sparks paints on the other,

 the other chipboards are the drift wood which are by Dusty Attic,

For the driftwood after the white Gesso dried, I added a little vintage photo distress ink, here and there, as I wanted it too look like it had a washed look, onto this I added some art stones in two sizes, some more shells and a few pieces of the fabby dried roots by 13 Arts, I love these!!!

The seagull had white Gesso then texture paste on the main body, white Gesso again then the distress ink on the legs and beak,

I finished it off with lots more art stones, dried roots and finally a bit of white Gesso dabbed here and there including the frame and twine for added interest,

PS: it look fab on the wall, a hint of the lovely weather to come, Lol
