Something playful

Hello everyone I do hope you are all okay. It's been a while since my last blog due to the big move up North. I have relocated from Essex up to Cumbria, new job and home. Just need my lovely husband to join me (once he gets a job) and our dream is complete, although much earlier than we anticipated. 

Anyway onto a quick play I had the other evening! It took me over a week to get the craft room sorted, but whilst packing I made myself a an emergency bag of craft stuff as I knew it would take a while to get straight. In all honesty I haven't had the energy or motivation to do much crafting but hope now I'm straight and settled in that my creativity will return. So here it is!

 
 

I didn't take any process shots as I was in the moment and enjoying myself, but I'll walk you through the stages!


The background was Infusions by Paper Artsy which I sprinkled onto the page and spritzed with lots of water, I then used a wooden stirrer from a coffee shop to spread the colour around the page. 

Next I stamped the feature again from Paper Artsy Wings Plate 1 and then I used one of the lovely Emma Godfrey's new Stencils which were released this week. Here's a link to the blog where you can see all the stamps and Stencils in this release.

You can see that I added some shapes of my own which I painted with Inktense pencils from Dewent.

Hope you like my page!
Take care for now

Acrylic tag 30 mins

Hello everyone, today I have my second inspiration for the 30 min challenge over at Country View Crafts chosen for us by the Lovely Sue. I haven't plaid on acrylic for a while so thought I'd use a tag.


 

I started on what is the backside of the tag using Seth Apter's Stencils and Fresco Acrylic Paints he designed for Paper Artsy. I mixed the colours up and layered them on. 



I cut some of Seth's dies to put on the front of the tag, this added to the layers. I looped some of the circles as I loved how they connected and how they move the eyes down the tag.

Lastly I added some washy tape and silver beads to finish. The butterfly is a recycled one whose wings sparkle because of the silver embossing powder I added.

Last look 

 

 I hope you have been inspired to join in with the challenge!

I hope you can pop back tomorrow as the winners will be announced, and the two lucky people will have a set of my stamps winging their way to them.

Take care 
Hugs xxxx

New challenge in only 30 mins


Hello everyone, thanks for popping in! Today being the first day of the month sees a new challenge start at Country View Crafts and it's a fab one chosen for us by the fabulously Talented Sue. Make something in 30mins!

All your entries entitle you to be in the draw to win £20 to spend in the shop plus Sue will pick her favs. So come on don't be shy set your timer and go!

For my inspiration I chose to work in my small journal!

 

Here's what I did, I'll provide a list at the bottom of materials used.

I knew I wanted to get sticking so I gathered all my supplies and set my timer, I forgot to screen capture the start and finish times
But trust me I stuck to my limit! 

 
So everything got stuck down with Matt medium and painted over with White. Wasn't sure where I was going here as although I knew I was doing a 
Journal page I hadn't a clue at this stage what it would be. I love all the different textures you can see below!

 
Still not knowing where I was going I add some infusions in my fav colour Violet Storm. I loved the effect, you can see more below!

 


Then for some unknown reason I grabbed the spray paints and sprayed it Pink

 
I loved how the Infusions darkened the pink giving different values to the piece and creating some depth. 

I knew now it had to be one of these fabulous girls which I painted with watercolours and added shading with Pencils 

 
Added my sentiment and time was up. I had 3 mins spare so not bad! Let's take a last look.
