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 πŸ™‚

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Blogmas Day 4

I have a little sparkly votive holder to share with you today, I bought this yesterday when I was through at Stampers Grove teaching a workshop…

Here is the before picture

and here is the finished project, I gave it a couple of coats of Imagination Crafts Starlights Paint in a gorgeous purple Lilac Mist, now purple is not a go to colour for me, but at the class yesterday one of the lovely ladies Robyn used a purple on her project and it was lovely, so this was my inspiration for today’s project πŸ™‚

Wee Wooden Snowmen

Hi everyone!

A slight change of plan for tonight’s blog post, instead of a gilded Christmas card I have some wee wooden peg snowmen to share..

These are for an upcoming workshop for Stampers Grove..

They are super easy to make and easy to stick on the tree too, you just slide the pegs on the branches ..

I will have more details Β on the workshop to follow soon.. until then, thanks for popping round and i’ll see you all tomorrow

Halloween Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!

You know the other day how I said I was done with Halloween? Β ….well…..I forgot that I bought a paper mache pumpkin when I was in Hobbycraft and seeing as it is Halloween tomorrow, I thought I better paint it πŸ˜€

I actually got a bargain it was reduced to Β£4.00 ! So here is my naked pumpkin, it is fairly big and about the size of a medium real one πŸ˜‰

bare

I gave it an initial coat of Paperartsy Butternut Opaque chalk finish paint I didnt have any opaque orange paints so had to improvise

one-coat

then I added a dollop of Deco Art Media Tinting Base and some quinacridone gold which gave me a pale orange colour

coat-2

then i mixed in more quinacridone gold to the base dollop on my desk and we are getting there..

coat-3

and even more ….

coat-4

then i dry brushed neat quinacrodone gold all over the top.. and happy with the result

final-coat

Happy Halloween everyone!!

The Wee Wooden Tray

Hi everyone!

Something different from cards to share today… I altered a wee wooden tray for an upcoming workshop.. this is the before picture πŸ™‚

tray-3

If you would like to decorate one with me I will be at Stampers Grove on Saturday 10th December from 11am till 1pm. Β  they are perfect for that last minute Christmas gift, you can paint/embelish , then fill them with a whole host of festive goodies, wrap up in cellophane and you have a perfect tailor made christmas gift!

Here is the one I made today, this would be perfect filled with fruit teabags, coffee, and homemade shortbread biscuits..

tray-1

There are a lot of different things incorporated in this tray, I gilded the edges in gold leaf, Stamped and heat embossed the sides with embossing powder and lined the inside and sides with a gorgeous patterned paper.. the handles are bound in gorgeous twine

tray-2

I also took a picture outside, it is amazing how lighter it looks in natural lighting πŸ™‚
