Envelope Photo Wallet

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday’s workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh was fun and a good time was had by all making their Photo Wallets.

I made one along with all the lovely ladies who came to the workshop.. it was a lovely surprise to see Helen again, my crafty friend from Kelso.    I met Helen when I used to demo crafty stuff at the garden centre down there and she now comes all the way up to Edinburgh to Stampers Grove workshops 🙂

Our photo wallets were constructed from envelopes and we used a variety of mediums, including Brusho Crystal Colours  to achieve our finished projects

I love how it turned out… as always, thank you for popping in and I will see you soon with more crafty projects

ATC : Past & Future

I spent this morning tidying and cleaning my workshop… it was…. the biggest hugest mess you ever did see

So once it was all tidy and clean, I decided to mess it all up again and get the paints out 😉

Last night I spent an hour or so researching ATC’s and watching videos of people making them on Youtube

Today I decided to make one and here  is my first attempt…

Supplies List :-

  • Chipboard cut to 2.5″ x 3.5″
  • Gesso to prime the chipboard and I also used it for the stamped image (a tip from Deb)
  • Acrylic Paint : Lagoon
  • Gel Medium
  • Paper Artsy Swirly Stamp
  • Basic Grey Flower Stamp
  • Donna Salazar Daily Chronicles Newspaper Quote
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink : Vintage Photo
  • A Jam Jar of Cold water and a couple of paint brushes
  • Pumpkin Stazon (to cover up the botched up swirl where the Gesso went on too thick)
