Dream – A wish your heart makes

Graphic 45 Typography Dream Canvas

Hi bloggers, here is a project I made with all the little scraps from my typography papers as the background to the canvas (Hels Sheridan calls it paper blocking and I love the idea, thanks Hels). I used the Typography stamps to add some more interest to the background. The paper roses are made using spellbinders and Marianne dies. The pen is from one of the Typography stamp sets, stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I am going to be doing a class on this one in February over at Cullen Crafts.

Oak House Studio One stamp project decorative diamond Shrink plastic Jewelry

Here are the other 2 things I made using the decorative diamond stamp from Oak House Studios for the One Stamp Project. For these two projects I used shrink plastic.

I used the stamp to make the kite for the wee boy to fly

I have saved the best until last in my opinion, I really love how this jewelry set came out and plan to run a class on how to make it at Cullen Crafts.

My DT card for the Friday Sketch Challenge this week features items from A Walk in the Countryside CD. I purchased this a while ago when it was on Create and Craft but have not used it up until now.

The main image has been triple embossed and all the papers, image and embellishments are from the CD, except the leaves, which are cut using a new Crafts Too die available at Cullen Crafts. The Thank You stamp is from the Chronology Freebie set that came with the Docrafts Magazine.

I’m late, I’m late for a very improtant date!

Im Late Artist Trading Card

The challenge over at Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge this week is Words or quotes, how perfect is this ATC I was working on. I used one of the new masks that I had made for Cullen Crafts (look out for them in the shop soon) with some modeling paste. I was so impatient for it to dry that I took my heat gun to it which produced the really cool texture as it all bubbled up. The rabbit is from The Next Big Thing cd from La Pashe and coloured with Copics.
