Very messy...

Had a lovely time at Stamperama with That's Crafty and made a lovely mess.

In fact I was messy even before the show opened as I was a bit enthusiastic squeezing the Pebeo black gesso (to die for!) and managed to get it all up my arms. Went to clean up but the doors had opened, everyone was streaming in so had to hurry back to my post! You'll be pleased to know that it's all now washed off - oh no, wait a mo, still a bit going up my arm with some dabs of the Pebeo iridescent paint (also to die for!) red, green and blue!

Here are a few more of the samples I made:




That first one would probably be a good one to hang on my art room door!

Thanks for looking!

Very excited....

....to be demoing for That's Crafty at the Stamperama show on Sunday 21 August.
Am going to be using Pebeo iridescent paints and Katzelkraft stamps and trying them out on all the That's Crafty surfaces with their Dinky stencils.
Here's a sneak peak of a very quick sample I made:


I've never been to Stamperama so am looking forward to it.

Come along and say hello!

and here's the rest of it....

I promised I'd show you the rest of the chalkboard when I'd finished, so here it is:



You coat the board with a special sealant so that you can write over it in chalk - I would have written on it for you but, believe it or not, I could't find my chalk!!!

Don't forget, you can come along and make your own board at The Craft Barn class on Saturday 20 August.

Thanks for looking!

Wood Grain Texture...

I've been having a lot of fun creating a woodgrain texture for my chalkboard which we're making at the Craft Barn on August 20th.:



I'll post more as I make it!

Thanks for looking!

PS Take note - it crackled!

And some more...

Told you I liked working in miniature!

This is a bookmark using a large paperclip painted gold and some Stampbord:


It fixes to the top of the page like this:


And this is another brooch using a picture from the People and Places book and two of the metal corners form the Must Haves section - if you haven't visited this section on their website, it's well worth doing so as they have some really great bits and pieces.


Hop on over to the Crafty Individuals blog to see more fabulous ideas.

Teeny, tiny cards....

Here are some teeny cards that I made for the Crafty Individuals 'Mini Masterpieces' Challenge, all made from the one stamp CI-452:


and a kilt pin:


For this I've stamped on the metal star using one of the doilies from CI-426 and then stamped script on the letters 'art' on Shrink plastic.

Thanks for looking!
