A bit rusty and decrepit...


...except for the fish of course.


This is a different shaped set of MDF on the That's Crafty! show on Hochanda on Tuesday.

Underwater magic...

I've gone all fishy for That's Crafty! this time.


Tune in on Tuesday 19 June for the latest Hochanda shows. This uses one of the new ATC shrines and some Magda Polakow stamps.

Thanks for looking!

Meadow flowers...

I loved making this - I took two of the That's Crafty! journal pages out and used them separately to make a double sided piece.
I've used Distress Oxides to colour with as you can build them up more easily. Stamping with Lynne's stamps was easy as I just stamped them, coloured and then overstamped some of them in black - because they're a loose, doodly design you don't have to be super accurate.
The large daisies are actually from one of the new stencils: 



All the products were from That's Crafty!.

More journalling....

Here are some more pages of the journal that I made for That's Crafty!
This one uses tea bag paper which was fun with some of Lynne's new Wildflower stamps.


This uses one of the new stencils, a large butterfly, done with coloured 3D gloss medium and the all over fleur de lys pattern:


And finally here I've used the new key stencil:

Tweet, tweet....

These both use the new bird stencil from That's Crafty!.
Here I've used it as a template to draw onto tea bag paper. The stamps are all by Lynne Moncrieff:


On this circle MDF board I've texture pasted the birds onto card and cut them out when dry. The background is sprayed rice paper, stencilled and stamped.



All these different papers and surfaces are available from That's Crafty!

Tissue paper...

Here I've been playing with tissue paper for the background - I like the way you can overlay it and create new colours.


The stamp and dies are both from Crafty Individuals.

Secret Garden...

Here I've used the top part of the That's Crafty! 9 x 4 Chunky that I didn't use in my shadow box to make a secret garden wallhanging. I've used Melina's stamps - lots of cutting out but worth it!


The background is the plaid stencil sprayed with Dylusions and also stamped off.


It's easy to punch holes through the MDF so that you can add the chain.

And in full...

Here are the projects I gave you a sneak peek of and, if you were watching That's Crafty! on Hochanda  yesterday, you'll have seen them.
This first one uses some of Fliss's new stamps and the new MDF rounds:



The stamps fit the whiteboard side of the Fanciful Flowers Matches.

Next I used an 8x8 Chunky and several of the mediums (Crackle, Sand and 3D Gloss), also the lovely new grey and mint paint:



Oh, and don't forget the 8x8 stencils which fit this perfectly of course.

The last sneak peek was of a 9x4 Chunky which I made into a shadow box by leaving off the front and using some of the waste to make a frame:



The stamps are from Melina's Doodled Forest set.
So, you can see, there are so many great quality products in these shows and you can use them any way you like.

Bright and breezy....

Here are some of the samples I made for Crafty Individuals on Hochanda last week:


These tags use some new background stamps that are coming out - they're great because they are a repeating pattern. Here's some close ups:




Two of them are negative images and the one in the middle is a small flower pattern. The pictures are from the glossy page sheets on the site.

These all use the same Crafty Individuals stamp, CI-489 Winter Walkies, but all use a different colour palette.
This was done on glossy card:


This one's on matte and layered onto some of the new A4 background paper:


And this sepia one is stamped with Distress Vintage Photo and lightly spritzed:
