How to paint onto Acrylic

Hello everyone, welcome to my second piece for this month's challenge over at Country View Crafts,which is Wings and Things. Today I'm sharing an acrylic Butterfly Stack with easy tips on painting on acrylic.



The stack - That's Crafty has 4 layers but I only used . Th last piece is Mdf board which I covered in Multi Matte Medium - 13Arts and Dutch Gold Leaf, which comes in sheet form. I've actually had this about 10 years. I put it away safe, and then forget where I've put it, I've done that three time to my knowledge. Lol. Anyway I know where it is now.



I left it quite crinkled as I liked the look but with smoothing you can get it crinkle free.
On one piece of acrylic I stamped the tiny flower from Beautiful You - Rubber Dance. I coloured it with the chalk pens from Jane Davenport.


Stamp one side then paint on the other, you can then see what bits you missed as above, I did go back and correct them but forgot to take another photo.

On the last piece of acrylic I stamped the large flower from Power Flower - Rubber Dance randomly over the shape.


I used Fresco Acrylic -Paper Artsy to paint the flowers again on the backside. Once dry I used the same Gell Medium on the pieces 
To join them together. They do come with four screws and predrilled holes, but I want to use the top two to hang it and the bottom two I will add studs.


All the stamps used are from Rubber Dance designed by me, and you will soon be able to buy them from Country View Crafts.
Take care

Altered Vintage bag

Hello everyone thank you so much for popping in. Today I'm sharing an altered bag I created for a swap I'm in on Facebook. I love these little challenges as when struggling with what to do, they really help me to focus. As soon as I heard the theme my mind went overboard. I wanted to create a vintage bag using patterned paper but wanted to create the pattern too. 



The bag started life white, but with a layer of Tea Stain Distress Ink - Ranger it became this colour. It was more yellow than I wanted but
Was stuck with it, so carried on.


I used the same colour on my first layer and once dry stamped the tiny flower from Beautiful You - Rubber Dance and the rose bud from
Blossoming Rose - Rubber Dance. I coloured both with Inktense Pencils - Derwent. 


The next layer was a doily on top of which I stuck another card layer, decorated with the larger bud from the rose set. I also used Vintage script also from Rubber Dance. More doily and then the final layer of a single rose. 


To finish I added some lace and string and then tied a tag to the handle, added some pearls and it was finished
All the stamps used are designed by me for Rubber Dance (except Vintage Script) and soon you will be able to purchase them from 


Take care everyone

New Challenge at Country View Crafts

Hello to you all, today sees the start of the new challenge over on the blog, and this months theme is Things with Wings. Interpret it anyway you want, but make sure you follow the rules. All entries are in with a chance of winning £20 to spend in the shop. So hop on over to Country View Crafts to see all the inspiration the team have created for you, you will be blown away by all the fabulous males.

My inspiration is a journal page.




Here's how I created her.

I gathered several Stencils and laid them on my page




I picked several complimentary colours from Dina Wakley minis 



I used lots of layers building the texture





Once it was completely dry I started the faerie 

White acrylic then My Prima water soluble Pencils (skin tones)


More layers defining features 


More details 


Tidying her up! I can get very messy and have to try very hard to keep things clean and bright. I also gave her some clothes.



I then finished her off. A great tip! once completely dry use a very watery mix of flesh tones 
and gentle smooth it over areas on your face you want to clean and  smooth out. 
Finishing touches to details with a black pen, I also used Prima Water Soluble crayons in white for highlights, 
they are very smooth and creamy and gave her a lovely complexion. Then she done!

Take care everyone 
Hugsxxx
