Seaglass Candle Holder

Hi everyone… how are you all doing?

I have not posted anything for over a week … that’s because we had a wee holiday, we headed up to Royal Deeside, to Braemar for a few days.. recharged our batteries and chilled.  I  love getting away, travelling to new places, taking in the local scenery etc, it is good for the soul :-)

I came home bursting with ideas and inspiration!..

This is my first project… I sorted through all my seaglass collection and gathered all the opaque white pieces to make a tealight holder.. The glass I used was recycled, it had Nutella in it beforehand, you know the one that comes with the white plastic lid :-)

I used Pinflair gel glue to fix all my glass into position, it takes a while to dry, but is perfect for this type of project, when it dries it has a rubbery feel to it, plus it is good with heat..

Here is a view of the candle before I placed a tealight inside.

Here is a proper look at it in the dark.. for the full effect of the beautiful seaglass

I am really tempted to make others, one using my aqua glass and one with my green glass collections.

I had a little play around with the 3rd image below and changed the hue / colour settings to give it a purple glow, then added a little touch of space overlay ;-)

Well… that’s my wee post for the night, as always, thanks so much for popping round.

See you soon with more projects

Hi everyone…

A quick wee card to share with you all today.. I made this card for a friend at work, who needed a card for her niece who is 16, I added a pocket on the inside with space for a gift card/money.

I looked at Pinterest for some inspiration, I also used my new stamp set from Stampin Up, it has lots of sploshes, splatters and washi tape stamps.. I can see this set getting loads of use as I absolutely love it!

Notebooks and Flower Pots

Hi everyone…

Busy day in the shed .. I spent the morning tidying and sorting (again)!  and early evening I managed to make another couple of projects to take along to my Indigoblu demonstrations.

When I was down in Kelso a couple of weekends ago, I picked up some items for altering, and used these today..

First project is a clay plant pot.. I gave it a base coat of Gee-Sso Good White Gesso… it dried really quick, no need to use the  heat gun,  then a napkin that I bought a while back,  next i applied some Slap it on Matte, and adhered the napkin to the pot..

Once the napkin was completely dry, I wrapped 3 x strips of 1/8th Inch Red Line Tape around the pot, and applied some Lancashire Rose Megaflake.. look how it shines, I just love it!

the second project continues with the same these of using napkins and slap it on matte medium to cover a note book…

Note Book1

This wee notebook measures approx 5.5″ x 5.5″ and the napkin covered it beautifully, the only difference between the 2 projects is I did not apply any gee-sso good gesso to the book before applying the napkin.
