Dramatic Eye Canvas

Hi everyone!!

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

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.     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 😉

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

Notebooks and Flower Pots

Hi everyone…

Busy day in the shed .. I spent the morning tidying and sorting (again)!  and early evening I managed to make another couple of projects to take along to my Indigoblu demonstrations.

When I was down in Kelso a couple of weekends ago, I picked up some items for altering, and used these today..

First project is a clay plant pot.. I gave it a base coat of Gee-Sso Good White Gesso… it dried really quick, no need to use the  heat gun,  then a napkin that I bought a while back,  next i applied some Slap it on Matte, and adhered the napkin to the pot..

Napkin Pottery 1

Once the napkin was completely dry, I wrapped 3 x strips of 1/8th Inch Red Line Tape around the pot, and applied some Lancashire Rose Megaflake.. look how it shines, I just love it!

Napkin Pottery 3

the second project continues with the same these of using napkins and slap it on matte medium to cover a note book…

Note Book1

This wee notebook measures approx 5.5″ x 5.5″ and the napkin covered it beautifully, the only difference between the 2 projects is I did not apply any gee-sso good gesso to the book before applying the napkin.

there is also a wee youtube time lapse video for this card, I am finding it easier to upload video’s these days, since we had new F/Optic Broadband installed, normally it would take me 4 hours to upload a 15 min video… now it takes minutes 🙂

so the supplies list for this card are :-

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock from Stampin Up
  • Reddy pink textured cardstock from Bazzill
  • Peachy pink & duck egg blue textured cardstock from DCWV
  • MyMinds Eye 12 x 12 Glittered Patterned Paper “in Bloom”

  • Studio Calico Wood Piece “Life is good”
  • Stampin Up Linen Thread and Stampin Dimensionals
  • Scor-tape
  • Papermania Tea Party Paper Blooms
  • Small piece of Muslin Fabric

for the envelope, I used the same patterned paper (leftovers) from the card and also a Spellbinders Scallop Edge Rectangle Die, a couple more of the paper blooms, muslin fabric and a wee pearl.
