With Love sketch card

Good morning :)
I am sharing my DT card for the C4E recipe challenge today.

This weeks challenge is to use the sketch above.

Although the sketch would work for lots of different projects I made a card, I have a lot of events over the next few months that require cards and need to build up my stash.

The DP's are from Fancy Pants Designs Country Boutique collection (6x6 pad)
Beautiful papers!

I kept the design fairly simple using some paper roses (Wild Orchid), cheesecloth, hessian, thread, a mini wood veneer heart (Studio Calico), punched leaves (Martha Stewart), wire curls and flat back gems.

I finished the card off with a simple sentiment so that the card could be used for several events.

Please feel free to pin the sketch to use later :)
Have a fabulous weekend!

Easter Art Journaling

Hello :)
Over on the Crafts 4 Eternity challenge blog we have an Easter challenge running this week.
My project this week is an Art Journal page.

I stamped the Gesso prepared page with grey Stazon and a lovely vintage french script stamp.

The eggs were cut freehand from some paper which happened to be on my desk.

Coloured over with some Dylusions inks.

Stamped again using a butterfly stamp, script stamp and dotty stamp in black Stazon.
Some random Gesso and pink acrylic paint were added on top along with some Gesso through a stencil.

The 'Easter' alphas were treated to a coat of Crackle paint in old paper and tattered rose.
Lastly I used a charcoal pencil, black fine line pen and white pen to add some depth and detail.

More fabulous inspiration from the design team and entry to the challenge can be found HERE.
Have a great weekend

Birnbeck Pier mixed media layout

Good morning :)
Today I have a mixed media layout to share with you. I love experimenting with texture and colour in my projects. This is the first time I used a black ink spray, it was a little scary adding the black but I loved how it turned out :)

The layout is 8.5 x 11". I started by adding modelling paste, chicken wire, washers, flowers, bandages and staples to the cardstock. I usually leave my projects to air dry while I work on another one so when it was dry I covered the whole piece with a coat of Gesso.

When the Gesso was dry it was time to add the colour. I used Dylusions Ink Sprays in Black and London Blue.

The photo was placed on top of a piece of cheesecloth and tracing paper.

A few seed beads, staples and alphas completed the layout.

The photo is of Birnbeck pier a sadly neglected piece of Weston's history.
If you would like to join us for this weeks challenge hop over here, there is some gorgeous inspiration over there too!

Time Flies

Good morning :)
I have my DT card for this weeks C4E recipe challenge to share today.

The card was made using a technique I taught at the C4E  March workshops called Bandanna.

The design was created with a selection of stamp, Stampers Anonymous and Indigo Blu.

For the colour I used Stazon ink pads blending them with some Cut n Dry foam.

It was then finished off with a white pen, Stickles and Glossy accents.
I'd like to try a art journal page with this technique and maybe a layout too!

If you would like to join us for this weeks challenge Hop over HERE.
There is lots of gorgeous inspiration from the design team to see :)

Have a lovely day!
