Seahorse Triptych

Hi Everyone!

A long time has passed since I have made or posted anything here on my wee blog..

I have been enjoying some time off from crafting and I’m ready to throw myself back into it for 2017..

I am almost finished the Rhona mini album, just waiting on more instax printer film arriving so that I can print off a few more picture of her to allow me to finish the album off πŸ™‚ andI also have my December Scrawlrbox to review, the contents were fab!

Now onto today’s blog post… last year I did a workshop at Stampers Grove and it was a sea themed triptych, now I never shared the project here on my blog, mainly because all the photo’s of it were on my phone. Β  Β One of the lovely ladies (Hi Margaret) who came along to the workshop had asked me if I had pictures of the completed project, so I downloaded them all onto my laptop and here they are.. they are in various stages but you will get the jist of it hopefully πŸ™‚

trip-1

The structure (back wall and doors) were made using an old cardboard box cut down to shape

trip-4

The arch windows are made from acetate and the seahorse stamped on using stazon

trip-6

I used a lot of sea blue glass beads and also incorporated some sea glass from my local beach

trip-3

I used a coffee filter in the picture below to give a sea like texture to the back wall, and i used a lot of sprays, inks and treasure gold to get this lovely effect

trip-8

I also used embossing folders to give the diamond effect door panels

trip-7

I used a little fish glass bead as a faux closure to the triptych below, and I used golden heavy gel medium to stick the beads in place, you can see in the picture below everything is still wet and newly glued down, this medium dried clear

I hope you enjoyed seeing this project, and I hope this helps you out Margaret πŸ™‚

As always, thank you for popping round and I shall see you all soon

Rhona the Spaniel Mini Album

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year … I thought I share what I have been working on for the last couple of days… it’s still work in progress

I am making a 6″ x 4.5″ Mini Album that will feature wee Rhona our Sprocker Spaniel, I spent time up in my shed cutting all the pages and inking, matting and layering them, Β got the front and back covers done and the binding done.

I love the bunny rabbit paper i used on the cover pages, it is from the First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 stack, the chipboard letters were from Stampers grove and because they had a glossy finish I used alcohol inks to colour them.

This week I will fill the pages with polaroid pictures of Rhona printed out from my Phone on the Instax Printer.

Really looking forward to finishing this wee book… as always thank for popping round and I shall see you soon
