Welcome to Day 12 of Blogmas and another Christmassy Crafty Project
I was at Stampers Grove Craft Shop on Saturday and got some of these fab papermache stars to paint…
I have had a lot of fun painting stuff for christmas this year, and I used some of the Imagination Crafts Starlights Paints to give these stars a lovely shiny new coat..
The three colours I chose to paint them were Apple Green, Chartruese and Jade.. I love how they turned out and they will look great on the tree 🙂
As always, thank you for popping round and I will see you tomorrow for Day 13 of Blogmas
Welcome to Day 11 of Blogmas!
Today I gave a clay vase that I bought a couple of years ago a bit of a festive makeover… it was looking a bit sorry for itself sitting up on the shelf in my shed.
So… I gave it a layer of Deco Art Media White Gesso, dried it with my heat gun, then gave it a lick of Captain Peacock fresco finish chalk acrylic paint from paperartsy…
I wrapped some twine around the middle, painted a balsa wood star with Deco Art Media fluid acrylic metallic gold paint and placed a few sprigs of glittery foliage into it and we are done 🙂
I love making my own home decor for Christmas, makes it that wee bit special knowing its homemade…
As always thanks for popping round and if you fancy joining me tomorrow, I will have another festive project for you.
A warm welcome to Blogmas Day 10! .. gosh we are into double digits now 🙂 we have 14 more days left until Christmas Eve and of course the end of Blogmas!
Today I have a masculine gift box to share with you.. it started out as a plain brown hexagonal paper mache box…
I half started making this the other night when I made a christmas card and mixed up too much of the light green paint, and instead of wasting it, I painted the lid of this box.
Supplies List :-
- 1 x paper mache box
- Paperartsy Hyde Park Semi Opaque Green Paint
- Deco Art Media Tinting Base .. when I mixed it with the Hyde park it gave me the colour on the lid.
- First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 patterned paper stack (I love this stack)
- Double Sided Tape
- Black Tartan Ribbon from Stampers Grove
- 3 x Painted Pinecones from Hobbycraft (you get 6 in a bunch)
- Hot glue gun to stick the pinecones down
Now that I am writing this blog post and looking at the picture I am wishing that I had edged all the paper panels and the edges of the lid with distress ink just to give it some definition..
As always, thank you for popping round and I will see you tomorrow for Day 11 🙂
Welcome to Blogmas Day 9!
I made it ….. by the skin of my teeth with today’s project 🙂
I still have a few bits n bobs to add to this but it is almost there so thought I would share it as is..
I am at Stampers Grove tomorrow making festive trays with the lovely ladies and this is sample tray No. 2
These trays are perfect for filling with goodies (tea/coffee/biscuits or toiletries/perfume/makeup or even sit a dolly or a big teddy in the middle and wrap up in cellophane with a big bow on top..
I want to add some glittery snowflakes (using the Tim Holtz dies I used earlier in the week) along the outside edges just to finish this off but I will need to do that tomorrow morning.
I’m off to bed now as it is an early start for me in the morning, then I will see you all tomorrow evening for another blogmas project… I’m thinking it might be a gift box 😉
As always, I appreciate you coming round
A warm welcome to Blogmas day 7
I mentioned last night that today’s post was going to be a card.. here it is 🙂
It is a 4 x 4 card and similar to the one i made the other day, but with this one I tried out my new sizzix 3D embossing folder that I bought at the weekend at Stampers Grove..
It also uses the new Tim Holtz /Sizzix Thinlets snowflake dies that I used the other day too… here is a wee picture of the ones I bought, I am hoping to use the branches dies very soon too..
- White Cardstock 8″ x 4″ and scored at 4″ so when folded makes a 4″ x 4″ card base
- White Cardstock for the top embossed layer
- Sizzix 3D Embossing Folder
- Tim Holtz Alterations Snowflake Die Set
- White Glitter Paper
- Aleene’s Tacky glue
- Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape
- Tim Holtz Chit Chat
- Black Soot Distress Ink
- Small star punch and silver glittered cardstock
I love all the texture in this wee card and it is very white.. almost too white like snow 🙂
Oki Doki.. that’s me for another night, back tomorrow with Day 8
As always, thank you for popping round
