Paint Fusion

Goodness me look at the dust in here, haven't had use of a scanner or camera for quite a while, at least a year by the looks of it lol

Scanner finally working so here is my first really proud offering, I've used a brayer for the background and Sheena Douglas daisy stamp and paint techniques for the flowers.

March Variety Swap

The theme for this months swap for Crafting Corner was to decorate 2 pencils, the far right pencil how they both started out. I did struggle with this one to start with but once I got going I don't have a single undecorated pencil anywhere lol
Both pencil's were rubbed down with an emery board, the green one was then sprayed with cosmic shimmer peacock green, and left to dry, I then used green glitter glue to draw stems and leaves, added some small paper flowers and random glitter glue and liquid pearl dots, a coat of watered PVA glue was the final coat.
The far left pencil was painted with a gold acrylic paint, then I used black stayzon to stamp the swirls and a small flower, again I used glitter glue and liquid pearls for highlights with a final coat of glue and finished with knotted black ribbon.

Variety Swap Crafters Corner

The theme for this month was to make 3 toppers
The cupcake is from Cricut Home Decore, using scraps of card, red brick and walnut stain distress inks, and some glitter glue.
The vase is from a Magenta stamp set, using water colour crayons, walnut stain distress ink, cosmic shimmer gold, black embossing pen, triple embossing and over stamping on the vase.
The landscape was made using brayering, sunset big & juicy, arirondaks mushroom, lettuce and aqua, Lavina tree and bulrush stamps, and the quote was from a creative expressions stamp.

The theme for this Crafter's Corner swap was 'colouring in' ...well black, grey and white are colours aren't they!

My theme ATC

The theme for this was 'Bee's' and I really like how this turned out, as I tend to do collagey things I thought this was 'clean' I may make another similar and turn it into a card.

Rubby Wedding Card

I did this for a friend and again it is a first for me, a word book, the idea being that it can be made into a scrapbook of the event. I belong to a local craft club so was able to have the word Ruby cut out on a circut machine. Again I stuck to basic colours to keep it uniform. I used my cuttlebug to cut out the circles, I then watermark stamped a flower onto that, I hand cut the scallpoped edges to each letter, added hearts to the hole punches and some flowers and gems. I did the verse's for the inside on word, but forgot to scan lol.

Bling Miniscrapbook

My first attempt at a minicsrapbook, fairly pleased with it although it did end up a little subdued, I stuck to monochrome as I thought it would be easier so black and white card and silver mirri, some of it is drawn as I don't seem to have any fashion stamps (shock) and a couple of peel-offs, I used a small butterfly and a boarder flower stamp with black stayzon, glitter glue and silver glitter pen to colour in and some lovely silver paper that looks like fabric, white organza ribbon and of course some adhesive gems.
