Family


Good morning :)
I have my DT project for this weeks C4E recipe challenge for you today :)
All the challenge details, entry and fabulous DT inspiration can be found HERE.


This week I have done a layout using a photo from last Christmas. 
I don't know about you but getting a decent photo of my boys is getting harder and harder lol! 


I was having a play with the photo editing and found a brilliant effect called Time Machine. It alters the photo to the style of various times such as Victorian, 50's and 70's. This photo had a Victorian effect added.



The background was stamped with a variety of stamps including stitches, hearts and a date stamp.
I sprinkled gold paint and red Dylusions ink over it before adding the paper cluster and embellishments.



The kit for this layout is available in the C4E store, though I don't think there are many left now!
Have a fabulous weekend thanks for stopping by

Snow Angel


Good Morning :)
I am back today with my DT project for this weeks C4E Challenge.
All the details, entry and fabulous DT inspiration can be found HERE.


For my Winter project I chose a layout of my son making a snow angel. 
We don't get snow here very often so when we do we get out and play lol!


I used masking fluid through a snow flake stencil (Dylusions) on to a sheet of cardstock painted with gesso.



Then added Dylusions ink and plenty of water. You can see the snowflakes are resisting the ink.
I left it to dry rather than use a heat tool I wanted the ink to pool and settle naturally.


Oddly the purple ink doesn't show much on the finished layout!
Once dry I added some stamping and a few silver paint snowflakes.
Then rubbed off the masking fluid. Although the fluid didn't capture the snowflake shapes quite as well as I hoped the effect was interesting.

The layout was finished with a paper cluster using a Kaiserkraft 6x6 pad, some punched snowflakes and sequins.

I'll definitely be having another play with the masking fluid I like the effect :)
Don't forget to join us this week at the C4E challenge, have a great weekend

Mixed Media Christmas card #2


Hello :)
As promised I am back with the second Finnabair inspired Mixed Media Christmas card for this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge.


For the second card I used a selection of buttons, beads, lace, staples, plaster board tape, glass gems and metal chain.



As before everything was adhered to a piece of cardstock then covered with White Gesso before adding the colour.



The colours for this card were Dylusions Cut Grass and Black and gold Maya Gold paint.



For this card I used only ultra fine gold glitter and Inca Gold to finish it off.


Some of the paint peeled off the glass pieces which gives it a worn vintage feel.


I really enjoyed making these cards, next on the list is a layout using this technique!
Have a great day thanks for stopping by :)

Mixed Media Christmas card #1



Hello :)
I am back today with one of my DT cards for this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge


Inspired by Finnabair I made 4 cards playing with beads, buttons, paint, ink and glitter.



I first added some torn book paper, buttons, beads, gems and a bottle cap to a piece of cardstock.
I then covered the whole piece with Gesso.


I really wanted to keep the white space on the card so instead of spraying the ink I used a paint brush to add it where I wanted it. This gave me much more control.
I used Maya Gold in Gold and  Dylusions Post box red and black.



When it was dry I added a mix of ultra fine glitter and some chunky gold glitter.



To finish I added a little Inca Gold in gold with a sponge over some of the raised areas.




I'll be back soon with my second card using this technique soon :)
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!
Michele :)
