Wacky faces...

My last sneak peek was this one:


which uses a new stencil from That's Crafty! called Lana which gives you the outline of the face and features. What you do with it after that is up to you!
I went for the slightly wacky and made her hair out of some multi-coloured wool that I had:


Lana also has a partner stencil called Max - I'll have to try him out next!

Thanks for looking!

Butterfly wings...

For this sneak peek:


I cut up one of the long panels to make a 3 part wall hanging:


Again I'm using all That's Crafty! materials - if you haven't tried out their surfaces yet you should go and have a look as they've got really imaginative things to work on: tags, triptych, shrines, shadow boxes etc etc to name but a few.

Thanks for looking!

Get out the texture paste...

This first sneak peek:


came from this pop out piece I made using some of the new That's Crafty! stencils and the light texture paste, along with some of their greyboard Bits and Pieces:



I've joined 2 of the long panels together for this. The front cover uses a different stencil - they are gorgeous stencils to use:


Thanks for looking!

Fabric Tags....

Crafty Individuals were on Hochanda last week with some of their lovely stamps and an amazing bundle kit. Here are two of the samples I made using calico:



Really enjoyed making these with all the stitching and beading and embellishments.

Thanks for looking!

Get out the bagpipes!


I've created a sort of Scottish wreath for the class on Saturday - you can create your own tartan and then add on thistles, bluebells and the like!



Thanks for looking!

....and on the inside...

Here's the inside of my Fauxdori:


The inside front cover just uses some crumpled copy paper to cover up the fabric edges. Had to paint it a bright colour of course!
The first insert is for notes or whatever:


I've decorated them roughly with Carabelle Studio stamps and some very old Prima ones.

Thanks for looking!
