One of my favourite cards

Image
Hi everyone, today I'm sharing with you one of my favourite cards that I recently made and I was very fortunate that it made cover too!!  It's a Prima Jamie Dougherty Bloom Gardenia stamp and I just love it! I didn't realise, well actually I didn't check how big this stamp was, for a cardmaker that is! The image itself is 5 inches in height and 7 1/2 inches wide. It was a Stampers Challenge for this issue and you should see everyone's gorgeous creations, they are awesome!!


I stamped the image on XPress It Blending card using Memento cocoa ink and coloured her with Copic markers, now I'm not a master at these markers by no means but I was very happy with my result! Just a little pat on my back there LOL. I stamped the flower in her hair a few more times, coloured them, cut them out and layer them on top.

I marked the centre of the card then cut around the outside of the image on the right-hand side, I used a scalpel for the inside areas. I placed cloud paper to th…

Rusty Papers Altered Book

Image
Hi everyone,
Sometimes my creativity just baffles me, I taught a fabulous bunch of ladies this morning in making very pretty cards using vellum, but straight after the class had finished and all the ladies were gone I went off into another world and create this altered book cover! I had the urge to pull out my collection of rusty papers that I create a few years ago! Why? you go and figure that out, I can't, I just don't know what my style will be from one minute to the next!  I just love it all.
Here is a picture of my gorgeous collection of rusty ephemera I made. I sprayed my papers with vinegar, placed metal objects on top, mine were already rusty because I left them out in the rain for a few months. I used washers, nails, bolts and screws, I let them sit on the papers for a few days then when I went back to check on them they looked like this!! YAY!!



Here is my 'I See You' altered book cover, I seem to be getting quite a collection of these altered book covers now. So …

First class of the year - 'Faux Ceramic' sneak peak!

Image
Hi everyone, well I've decided to get back into teaching classes, I've missed the interaction with students and hearing the happy chitter chatter in my studio! 
This Saturday I'm teaching my 'Faux Ceramic' class, here is one of the embellishments that will be made, I just love the vintage effect. I used Hero Arts Three Ferns stamp and Plaid Mod Podge Nature moulds. My mind is racing with ideas with these  embellishments -brooches, wall plaques, magnets, necklaces etc etc!!




So if you live locally (Quakers Hills NSW) and would like to attend one of my classes then please send me an email and I'll forward you my timetable. 
Happy creating everyone!
