I have a wee canvas for the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Craft group challenge over on Facebook. In honour of St Patricks day this month, the challenge is to create a project with green in it.
I started with a canvas that i didn’t particularly like and took the Swirled hearts texture sheet from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts which I scraped some texture paste through. I then used different colours of Colourarte silks to get the green colours of the bacground. I printed the quote onto a piece of green paper and then cut it into seperate words before I stuck it onto the canvas. The heart is from the Waterworks shape set and it was painted with Vintage mint silk acrylic glaze from colourarte. I used a stabilo all surface pencil to outline the words and make them stand out against the background. I finished the whole thing off with some prima flowers.

I am very privileged to have been asked to do a couple of guest DT spots for Chocolate Baroque. I have a wonderful stamp set to work with and for my first project I have used a chipboard clock from Gina’s designs. and the Autumn Poppy stamp sheet below.
I painted the clock with blue Cosmic Shimmer matt chalk paint then again with their crackle medium and finally used the pink matt chalk paint. I stamped and embossed the poppies onto the back of the clock and then used mica powders to paint the poppies and butterfly. I then assembled the clock and added the flowers and butterfly.
Please do check out the blog over at Chocolate Baroque for more fabulous ideas using this stamp set.
Hi everyone, I have the front of my Art Journal to show you today. I have been taking part in a group on Facebook called Journal 52. Each week we get a prompt and make an art journal page using that prompt as inspiration. I have been thinking about art journaling for a wee while now and this kind of gave me a shove in the right direction. I have 4 pages inside this binder which I may or may not share over the next few weeks.
I glued the chipboard and letters onto the binder cover, added a layer of creased tissue paper and then applied gesso once it was all dry. I painted the whole thing with vintage photo distress paint and then scraped some broken china distress paint over the chipboard and letters using a sponge. I then applied gilding wax to the raised parts to define them again. The steampunk lady was decorated using Distress paint and embossing enamel and powder.

I used the stamp with black archival ink and embossed it with clear powder then I created the scene with distress inks and masks and this months NDC stamp (they are mega useful too).

Hi Bloggers, today I have for you a box I have made using my delicious Typography papers from Graphic 45 that I got this month. I needed a box for my record cards, so I went ahead and made myself one, the index cards are made by cutting up the alphabet paper to create the indexing part (warning, there is no “o” on the paper!)

I didn’t really spend Christmas with Gina’s Designs as the title suggests lol, although thanks to the wonders of technology Gina and I did spend Christmas morning together 🙂
I have a layout for you today made using the new String Alongs in the store, embossed in separate areas using a versamark pen. It seems like forever since I did a physical scrapbook layout instead of a digital one and I really enjoyed making it!
Our boys decided to get us up at 5.15 am on Christmas Day morning, hence the title for the layout, I had the boys write onto some tags with an embossing pen which I then embossed with clear powder along with my own tag as well. When I put the layout together I created pockets for the tags by gluing down only tiny bits of the strip of paper that the tags sit behind, thus allowing the viewer to take out the tags a read the reverse (which explains the title!)

Since April 15 – 21 is World Creativity & Innovation Week, Gina’s Designs decided to hold a blog hop in celebration of Creativity! We challenge everyone to try something new and craft outside their comfort zone.
In keeping with this theme, each of our Design Team members will be unveiling a project that includes a technique that is new to them. So hop over to each blog, check out the fun new techniques, and enter to win the prizes.
Here is my project, can you believe I have never done the shaving foam printing thing before! Well I had so much fun with this I will definitely be doing it again, I just wanted to print everything lol. I have never made twinchies before either – that was a little more of a challenge as they are so small, I am pleased with how they turned out though.
