There is beauty in simplicity

Hi Everyone…

Hope you are all doing well …

Seeing as the weather is so dreich today I went up to my shed and made a wee card after work

I created several brusho backgrounds on Tim Holtz water colour paper a few weeks back, and had a few leftover pieces on my desk.. so decided to make this wee card

leave 1

The card base is 4″ x 4″ with a black card layer followed by the brusho top layer

leave 4

the skeleton leave stamp is from a Paperartsy stamp set by Lin Brown Series 29 and this was stamped directly onto the paper using stazon purple ink

leave 2

The card was assembled and finished off with a Tim Holtz small talk sticker for the sentiment..

I have been busy this week working on my next design team project for colourcraft will be live on their blog on the 17th June at 10am.. i’m excited about it already πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for popping round, I will try and blog more soon, but if you fancy catching up with me on social media you can see me on Instagram where I post lots of pictures of the dogs, flowers, the fishery and every day life… link is in the side bar πŸ˜‰

Take care

Brusho Colour Swatch

Hi Everyone!

Feeling acomplished this evening. Β  Everyone in the house was out so I headed up the garden with the dogs, sat in my wee shed and colour swatched all my pots of Brusho πŸ™‚

Brusho Colour Swatch

I am planning to do the peppered colour swatch sometime this week, so will share those with you too… the peppered method is my absolute fav way to use Brusho, and I will be sharing some projects using these very soon πŸ˜€

ATC Art Shrine & Crafty News

Hi Everyone!

I mentioned yesterday that I had some news to share…

I am so happy to be able to let you know that I am a design team member for 2017-2018 for ColourCraft and I am looking forward to creating lots of nice new projects for them in the coming year.. and of course you will get to see them all because they will all be featured here on my blog πŸ™‚

I also have an ATC Art Shrine to share with you… this is from a company called That’s Crafty and they can be bought from http://www.stampersgrove.co.uk

17352027_10154417156816966_2336070277997377562_n

they arrive in kit form and you have to glue all the bits together to make the shrine, you get 3 in a packet.. I gave one a coat of Deco Art white gesso, then cracked open my new set of Tim Holtz mini Stencils and used 2 different ones along with Deco Art Modelling Paste

I also used 2 pots of Brush crystals to obtain the gorgeous colour on the shrine.. Turquoise and Light Brown…

I popped in an ATC that I made some time ago, just to see what it looked like up against the ATC Shrine

atcartshrine3

I’m loving how the blue pops through the brown in random places.. and I am looking forward to decorating the other two soon… not sure if I am entirely finished decorating this one yet, I might add something else to the front, but if I do I will be sure to post an updated picture

That’s all for today, as always thanks for popping round and I will see you soon
