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 🙂


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


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


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

Pot o’ Tags

Hi everyone…

Another wee project for you this evening, using Imagination Crafts Starlights Metallic Paints…

I absolutely love the colour I used today.. this one is going to be perfect for Halloween and Autumn.. it is called Zinober Gold (128).. it is so rich in colour and my favourite one so far, I also used Black (131) to paint my wooden letters

I dug out the peat pots again, these wee things are so versatile, I am using this one to store my tags in.. when I have a lot of small bits of cardstock leftovers I diecut tags and store them for future projects and workshops.

I painted the letters in the metallic black and it is lovely too.. very shimmery, and finished it off with a wee bit twine around the top.
