Dramatic Eye Canvas

Hi everyone!!

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

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. Β  Β  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 πŸ˜‰

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

b) I get to use up some of the bottles of acrylic paint I have accumulated

c) I get to make cool new backgounds for my cards

First of all I will share the new jelli prints that I made, then I will show the cards I made after I was done πŸ™‚

This is my latest design team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, it’s a re-purposed face cream selection box, which has had the shabby treatment, and tomorrow I will make the mini album to go inside.

This is what the box looked like before I set to work on it today…

and the inside

I decided to leave the silver cover visible on the box and not paint it out in acrylic paint, opting to matt and layer it with patterned paper, pearlescent shimmer card stock, lace and fabric.

I incorporated the shabby rose pins on the front of the box, that I made last week…
