Special Day Bunting card


Good Morning :)
I have a quick card to share today :)
The card was made for the C4E Recipe Challenge this week where we are asking you to share projects with Bunting and Banners.


My card was inspired by THIS pin.
The stamped image is Stampers Anonymous, stamped with grey Stazon.
The bunting are some left over pieces from a Bo Bunny Isabella 6 x 6 pad.


I threaded some pink twine across the top of the bunting and finished off with a sprinkle of Magenta Maya Gold paint, silver sequins and Stickles.


Join us HERE for this weeks challenge and more DT inspiration.

Have a great day
Thanks for stopping by

Footy Bookmark


Good Morning :)
I am busy getting ready for the first Crafts 4 Eternity 12 hour crop at the moment but I managed to squeeze in a quick DT project for this weeks C4E recipe challenge.
All the challenge detail, entry and DT inspiration can be found HERE.


My project this week is a bookmark for my eldest son. I caught him turning down the corners of a book he was reading naughty boy! So I made him a little bookmark to use instead.


I made the bookmark at the same time as making the Now and Then Mini album for one of Sunday's workshops so it matches perfectly lol!
I used a scrap of cardstock, added some modelling paste through a stencil, then painted it with Gesso before adding Blue acrylic paint.
The background was completed with some splats of red Dylusions ink and silver Maya gold paint then added some Gesso circles using a bottle top.


My son is a big football fan so this Kenny K image was perfect.
He is coloured with Copics.

All that remains is for me to say ...

Mixed Media Weaving Card Tutorial


Hello :)
I have my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge to share with you today.
I remembered to take photos along the way so I have a quick tutorial too!

All the challenge details can be found HERE.


My card this week is a mixed media birthday card featuring paper weaving.


First step was to weave some strips of pattern paper. These papers are from a Tim Holtz paper pad which I'm not too keen on.
I wove strips of 1/2" paper on to a square card base, sticking the ends of each strip with glue.


As you can see it's not perfect lol! I missed some weaves! 
But I was going for texture rather than perfect weaving.


A coat of Gesso, not too thick I still wanted some pattern to show was added next.
Next, using black Stazon ink and a script stamp I randomly stamped over the piece.



I then added Modelling paste through a stencil and let it dry.


Using Lime green and Black Dylusions I coloured the piece. When that was dry I added some Gesso circles using a bottle lid and some silver accents using Viva Decor Inka Gold paint.


The chipboard cog was coloured with Viva Decor Maya Gold Silver paint and the small black card cogs 
were coloured with the Silver Inka Gold. Some wrapped wire and a sentiment finished off the card before adding it to a card base.





You can still see some of the pattern and colour on the paper weaving.


Although the weaving was a little fiddly overall the card was fairly quick to complete.

If you have any questions please leave a comment :)
Have a wonderful day

Delicious Recipes Book


Good Morning :)
It's looking like it's going to be a busy weekend here in Weston!
We have our annual air days all weekend with lots of planes and activities going on in town, and of course it's the C4E all day crop and workshops tomorrow too!
Listen out for us on the Breeze radio (107.7) we have been mentioned the last couple of months!
If you would like to join us the details are all HERE.

I have my DT project to share with you toady, it is for the C4E Recipe Challenge.
All the challenge details and entry can be found HERE
While you're there check out the fabulous DT inspiration they are a talented bunch of ladies!


My food themed project today is a recipe book for a swap at the C4E crop.
The swap is on going so I've allowed lots of room for some new recipes to try.


The book is slightly bigger than A5 in size to allow for the A5 size pocket pages inside.
I like my covers to be a little larger than the inside pages.
The papers are an old collection from Basic Grey, I've horded these papers for quite some time lol!
I painted the edges of the chipboard covers with White Crackle Paint. then added the papers on top when it was dry.


The cute cutlery and "Recipes" die cuts were from a lovely lady at the C4E crop.


I still need to add some dividers to the book, but can't decide what sections I want yet!

That's all from me today have a wonderful weekend
thanks for stopping by

Michele :)
