Birdhouse Makeover (Timelapse)

Hi Everyone…

Apologies, it has been a while since I have blogged, It’s not that I have not been crafting, it is more the case of I have not had time to blog any of it..

Life is busy with the pups and Chunky has more trips to the vet than i can mention.. but he is still with us and on the whole keeps remarkably well ๐Ÿ™‚

I altered this little wooden birdhouse yesterday and recorded the video, spent this morning editing it and chopping it down from 2 hours to 7 mins ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I love how it looks.

Supplies used :-

  • Wooden Birdhouse from Stampers Grove
  • PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint in Granny Smith Opaque Chalk Finish
  • Claudine Hellmuth Semi Gloss Acrylic Paint in Traditional Tan
  • Paperartsy Patterned Paper 12 x 12
  • Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
  • Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive

See you soon

Chocolate Box Toadstool

Chocolate Box Toadstool.

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you all, hope you have had a lovely crafty weekend!

Yesterday I drove all the way up to Turriff in Aberdeenshire to a fabulous wee craft shop called Madhatters, where I did a Demonstration for Indigoblu. ย  It was worth the 6 hours driving and 320 odd miles round trip!

Wendy the shop owner was brilliant and kept all the ladies going with cups of tea, then we had a lovely wee buffet lunch (I even got a wee doggy bag to take with me for my drive home)! ย  ย So a special thank you to Wendy for your hospitality and fabulous wee craft shop.

I bought a couple of these toadstools, they have the best selection of decopatch shapes, boxes & things I have ever seen and just had to bring these home with me… so guess what today’s project was ๐Ÿ˜‰

I used the following Indigoblu Products to transform this wee cutie!

  • Indigoblu Flitterglu, Phat Foam & Scoochie.
  • Indigoblu Chocolate Box Megaflake
  • Indigoblu Snow White Metallic Cottage Acrylic Paint
  • Indigoblu “Enjoy Life” Stamp Set .. using the “With Love” Stamp
  • Stazon Ganache Ink

Here is the wee toadstool transformed into something rather special, I love this and will be making another one very soon which will travel with me to Indigoblu Demonstrations around Scotland.

Dramatic Eye Canvas

Hi everyone!!

Long time no see!! ย I have been absent from my blog since well before Christmas, but I am back now ๐Ÿ™‚

Where have I been?

I have been very busy creating projects for Indigoblu, they attended CHA 2015 in Anaheim, California… very exciting indeed.. my projects were all there too, really really pleased and humbled that they were good enough to go.

Which leads me on to the blog post for today. ย  ย  Indigoblu have collaborated with Limor Webber to bring a range of gorgeous mixed media stamps and stamp sets, and they are absolutely fabulous!

It is my turn back over on the Indigoblu Blog today, after the festive break and my project is using one of the new Limor Webber stamp releases, this one is called Dramatic Eye and comes in 2 sizes, I used the larger stamp in the canvas below.

and here is my project, it is a 5 x 7″ canvas, I tried to keep it monochromatic ๐Ÿ˜‰

There are lots of bits n pieces used here, including Indigoblu cottage acrylic paints and alter ego flourishes

I also used the snow white metallic paint watered down in a spray bottle to create a shimmer spritz spray..

Well, that’s me for today, I will be back, with lots more things to share in the not too distant future, so as always, thank you so much for popping in
