From Pebble to Paperweight

Hi again

The theme for WoW Embossing Powder this month is "Home Decor".  Iv'e created something from nature this time.  From a garden pebble to a paperweight to use around the home. You could also make other things from pebbles - try making Door stops too with larger pebbles or Ladybirds to put in the garden. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. See what you could make.  

Here's a sneaky peek for you

- take a look here for a detailed description on how to make this project.  Back soon with more projects for you.

Imagination Crafts Inspiration Post. "Silkies on Calico"

Silkies on Calico

Hi  all

Here's my Inspiration post for 15th January for Imagination crafts. Iv'e used Silkies on Calico and to colour the clay embellishment at the bottom.

Firstly I stenciled Silkies through the Imagination Crafts Honeycomb stencil onto purple paper and used this for the background.

These Silkies are very versatile and seem to work with any other medium. They come in such lovely colours too. They always hold their shine when you use them for stencilling, painting, covering clay and more..

I used a variety of colours for this project.  I placed the stencil onto Calico and stenciled the colours through with a stiff stencil brush. I then made a fringe around the edge and inked it with an ink pad.

The clay embellishment was made by pressing clay onto a stamp then peeling off. Once dry I rubbed Silkies over the top with my finger touching all the raised parts of the picture.

I look forward to making more craft projects with these lovely paints.

A few docrafts Demo Cards you

Hi all

Here's a couple of cards I made for my docrafts demos this weekend.  I love inking Embossing Flolders as each one is different when you open up the Embossing Folder.

I'm not a "cute card" fan and am more of a grungy, messy girl - just like my life at the moment. lol

More samples to make so off now to create more samples for my next round of demonstrations. I'll be at The Range in Exeter on Saturday 17th so if you are in the area, pop along to see some new techniques and products.
