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!
