Hi Everyone!

A very warm welcome to the Fabulous Rubber Dance Art Stamps and Colourcraft Blog Hop!

My project for the blog hop today is a keyring holder and features the Whimsical Summer Stamp Set, Grungy swirls background stamp and Colourcraft Brusho and Aztec Pearl Paint.

Whimsical Summer 1

My project started of as a chipboard kit and I applied a layer of white gesso to all the elements

Whimsical Summer 2

I then started to apply my Brusho crystal colours to create a background, drying in between layers to ensure the colours did not bleedtoo much to give me 3 difinitive areas.. sky, background and grass

Whimsical Summer 3

For the houses, I mixed custom colours by adding Brusho to white gesso .. so versatile

 

 

I also used the grungy swirls background stamp over a few of the elements prior to painting with the brusho

Once all the painting was complete, I stamped out several of the whimsical summer stamps onto waterolour paper and used the brusho as a watercolour medium, then fussy cut out the elements and assembled the project

Steampunk Christmas Tree Workshop

Hi Everyone,

It is hard to believe it is December already, the weeks are just flying in!

I was over in Edinburgh yesterday at Stampers Grove for a Steampunk Christmas Tree workshop and I thought I would share all the lovely trees made by all who attended 🙂

I didn’t manage to get a picture of Rita or Isobel’s trees as they left before I got around to taking a picture of them but they looked lovely 🙂

Christmas with Colourcraft Workshop

Hi Everyone!

Hello and welcome… can you believe it has been almost a month since my last blog post!..

I wanted to share the lovely creations from the Christmas with Colourcraft workshop held yesterday at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh…

We had a fun day learning all about Colourcraft products and the fun things we can do with them… this is the sample I made for the workshop

We worked with the Aztec Lustre and metallic paints, Acrylic Sprays Mists and Shimmer Mists, Tyvek, Lutradur 70, Soft Form Relief Paste, Expandit and Brusho Crystal Colours..

Once we had finished having a good old experiment and play with the products we gathered everything that we had made throughout the day and brought it all together to make a christmas hanging collage…

I absolutely love how every single one is different and such great pieces made by everyone.. well done ladies your work is wonderful 🙂
