Late again!

I was on the PaperArtsy blog last night with a post using retro colours and Lynne Perrella stamps:



This was a fun project and took me back to my childhood - oh so many years ago!

Christmas in July?....

I know it's early but I thought I'd show you some of the samples I made for That's Crafty! last week.
This one uses the new Red Lustre Spray as well as Melina's stamps:


It's a bit difficult to see but the background is stencilled with the new Holographic Gel - lovely stuff:


 And this uses the Black Texture Paste which dries to a really crisp, matte finish. Grab some of this as soon as it's back in stock because it's really good:

ATCs

That is, Artist Trading Cards this time, MDF ones from That's Crafty! to be exact. I've made a set of four using some of Melina's stamps. I added the red embossing as I found an old jar of red powder in my stash and thought they needed brightening up a bit. The background is gelli printed straight onto the MDF.

All the seasons...

I used Melina's tree set from That's Crafty! to make a card for each season.
I've used Distress Oxides and some of the new stencils for the backgrounds and then varied the colours and leaves accordingly:

Blues and greens....

Fish in the sea....

This post uses the Concertina Journal from That's Crafty! which has these fantastic pull out page spreads. I couldn't resist making a panoramic scene using all the pages.


I've used various things to decorate my pages: Stencils, stamps from Lynne, sprays etc.


Here I've used the 3D gloss gel and then reheated it once dry to stick my foil:


Some of Lynne's new mark making stamps made up the house and trees:


You can throw pretty much anything at these pages and it won't go through to the other side, the paper's so good.

Hoot hoot....

There are some beautiful new owl stamps on the Crafty Individuals website, designed by artist maria Kitano.
This is a small canvas that I made, using Jane Davenport Colorsticks for the background. They're super easy to blend over a layer of white paint:



Here I used a Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder for the background and painted it gold:


The owls are gorgeous and really easy to colour.
