Another Wedding Day Card

Hi guys, you may have seen that I am currently a guest for Sarah Wright from 
I received some gorgeous resins in my DT kit and this beautiful heart is no exception,


I gave the heart a coat of white Gesso then added a little silver glitter on the top and bottom of the heart too,

This looks lovely in real life as the glitter shimmers subtly, I added a couple of Foamiran flowers around it made with Lady E Design dies  Flower 001 and Tiny leaves,


I cut the leaves out of white card and coloured them slightly with a little ink,


I added a hint of the same Glitter on some of the leaves too,


I created the base of the top layer with another Lady E Design die using one of the Borders,
Beneath this I added one of the fabulous Word sets 009 by BlooMar Design,
The papers are by Mintay which I also got from Sarah,

Wedding Day

Hi guys, recently I told you I was very lucky to win a candy off Craft & You papers, one of the papers collections I won was Sweet Time,
These papers are simply gorgeous, I love the soft images and colours,


I loved this image that much I didn't want to add lots of layers etc to it, so I only cut two base layers and made the image the main layer,


I added some glitter onto the back of the dress and in her hair continuing this throughout the card,


As you can see I used the adorable Wedding Day chipboard  words set 009 by BlooMar design, simply adding a little glitter on the dot on the i, the rest is left in it's natural colour,
On the top of the card I added another fussy cut section from the paper, then added some of my handmade flowers over the top,


I used Flower 6 Poppy die, Tiny Flowers, Flower 5, Flower 001, then leaves 6 herbs by Lady E Design Dies, using white 0,.6 Foamiran and Silk Foamiran, I coloured the flowers with Versa Colour ink pads and added the same glitter to the leaf dies from the herbs set,


please Excuse my glue trials, my glue gun is playing up again at the minute!!


I wanted the flowers to trail down the card and some go across to fit in with the style of the card,


Here you can see how the glitter shines on the leaves,

I shall be making more beautiful wedding creations out of these gorgeous papers as I really love them,

Magical Garden

Hi guys, as you know I'm guest DT for
Sarah and her resin over at
One of the Resins I got in my DT package was this fabulous Fountain Bird/Bath,
which I thought went well with a little Mixed Media,
I saw the wonderful colours on the Lindy's Gang moodboard, so based my colour theme on that,


I added some white Gesso to ithe fountain first then on the base of the fountain added some Lindy's Gang embossing powder, leaving bits of the white showing to create an aged effect,

I painted an old Paint brush with some white Gesso then coloured over that with some Flat Magical - ocean breeze blue, I then wrapped some twine around the handle so I can hang it up as well as giving it a little added interest, I also did the same colouring with the BlooMar chipboard Frame,





When I'd glued these onto my brush I started layering some flowers from my stash, along with some more BlooMar chipboard leaves pieces and some metal pieces too,
The leaves I coloured with Gesso then went over with Lindy's Gang Opal Sea Mist and Magical Industrial Chic - Steampunk Sepia,
I  then used one of the Finnabair Mechanical flowers in among the flowers for a little contrast,


I had these Dusty Attic fairies in my stash and thought well they went fantastically with my magical garden, these I painted with gesso, then magical Shaker Oom Pah Pah Pink and went over with Lindy's Gang embossing powder in Geranium Coral Blush,

Believe

Hi guys, how is the hols going? I'm busy with my Granddaughter a few days a week so on one of my free days I felt in a mixed media mood,

As some of you know I'm GDT for 
Owned by the lovely Sarah, one of the resins she sent me was this fabulous birdbath fountain, which just screamed to be used on my altered brush, lol

I saw the fabulous mood board on Lindy's Gang and so used the colours,
I got some old brushes off my hubby and so I began by painting the handle with some white Gesso first, I added a couple of layers till it covered the black of the handle, I also painted with Gesso the chipboards and the resin Fountain,
When dry I painted the brush with some watered down Flat Magical Ocean breeze Blue, again I did a couple of light coates, then I dried it with my heat tool, I wound some twine from my stash round the handle and top of the bristles sticking it in place with hot glue,
I used a chip board frame by BlooMar designs on the top of the brush which I had also painted first with the Ocean Breeze Blue, when this glued down in place I adhered the fountain onto the middle section of the brush, I added a layer of Lindys embossing powder on the base section of the fountain leaving parts uncovered to give an aged look, the top I left with the Gesso,

After the fountain set I glued the rest of my embellishments on too,
I added some flowers and metal pieces from my stash, I again used another BlooMar chipboard for the leaves shown at the base of my brush, I painted this with white Gesso first then went over when dry with Magical - Mermaid Seashells in Opal Sea Oats and Magical - Steampunk Sepia,

I used a couple of Dusty Attic Mini Fairies on my brush which after painting with white Gesso I then did a layer of watered down Magical shaker - Oom Pah Pah Pink then went over this with Lindy's embossing powder - Geranium Coral Blush,
I used the same Magical shaker - Oom Pah Pah Pink for the small flower shown under the Finnabair metal flower, 

I used the same steps for the smaller D/A Fairy too,

Well I hope I've shown you how fabulous Sarah's Resins are and how they can be used with mixed media so well,
The resin Shop is on FaceBook and also available at her online shop

Latest Poinsettia dies and winter leaves by Lady E Design

Hi guys, just thought I'd pop by with some Poinsettias I've created using white 0.6 Foamiran and the latest Poinsettia and winter leaves dies by Emelia,
As you know i'm lucky enough to be on her DT and so as soon as I got these I just had to have a play!!, lol

I used some different versa colour ink pads to colour them, and also used different stamens in the centres too,


The Poinsettias come in two sizes, which are fab sizes for cards or other projects,



I will have a project to show you using some of these flowers and leaves soon,


Happy Crafting!!!
