Here's a sneak peek:


Head on over there to see the rest.

The birds and the bees...

I've got a class on Saturday 29 July (next week) at The Craft Barn and we're making this canvas:


We'll be painting the background directly onto the reverse of the canvas and then building up detail over the top and on the frame:


Just follow the links if you fancy joining me.

Christmas again!

Hope you enjoyed Crafty Individuals shows on Hochanda. Thought I'd show you another of my makes, this time some Christmas tree decorations.
Here's the box:


And here are the decorations:





They all use the same stamp, CI-463, which also happens to be one of my favourites, and are made with curtain rings, which are great as they come with that hook thing already attached!

Thanks for looking!

Christmas in July....

Yes, Crafty Individuals are on Hochanda on Friday with some lovely Christmas shows.
Unfortunately they couldn't use these little Christmas houses that I made:



as they use some of their old papers - my bad, I forgot to check! However I'm posting them here as I really enjoyed creating them and they should get you in the mood for Friday's shows (3.00pm and 7.00pm) .



Thanks for looking!

Owls project no. 2...


This was the whole project, made using one of the GiganTags. I've sprayed it with the new Sparklers sprays which are specifically designed to go on dark backgrounds:


Here it shows up on the dark lettering:


I've used Tyvek again, painted black, spritzed, heated and then highlighted with the Shimmer paints:


Thanks for looking!

Rubber Dance stamps...




...these owls featured on That's Crafty Hochanda and they're made by Rubber Dance and are irresistible. I used them on two projects, an 8 x 8 panel:


which I die cut a hole out of. The crinkly stuff is Tyvek, ironed and painted to give texture and the feathers and wings are from a die cuts' set.



I'll post the other project tomorrow.

Thanks for looking!
