It's Christmas!

Yes, you won't believe it, it's Christmas over on the PaperArtsy Blog this evening. The theme was Baubles and Bling and I went for it in a big way! Not traditional Christmas colours though (well, not for me).

If you get a chance, hop on over and take a look!

Lion taming...!

This project was done on one of the MDF rounds. I didn't give it a coat of gesso but went straight in with the stencilling - liked it on the brown background.


The border round the edge is made by using the small pattern stamps:


 I traced the round onto card and stamped them over the edges and cut the whole thing out.
The lion's head is built up to give dimension.

Hope you like this project.

Nesting box...

 Thought I'd show you the nesting box I made for last week's That's Crafty! shows.

I'm actually using a small MDF Chunky, but I die cut a hole out of the middle before putting it together.

I've used texture paste to create the wood effect and then embossed a piece of card for the roof.





The text on the base is from one of Lynne's sets.


Hope you like this project!

Woodland scene

Here's one of the samples I made for the Crafty Individuals shows this week.

I've used paper to cover the frame and then stencilled over it and added more colour.

The mushrooms are one of the new stamps - love them.


I've doubled up the hare and used some more paper in the background.



The robin is cut from one of the new stamps and used on its own.

Hope you liked this project!

Round and round....

I always like these MDF Rounds from That's Crafty! - the shape just works so well. This one uses stamps from some of Melina's latest collections. I've stamped round the edge in paints and then stamped the green leaves with VersaFine Clair.

new storage...

 These new storage boxes appeared on The Craft Store last week and were very popular. I love the picket fence at the front.


I painted and stamped all the pieces before assembling this time - just be careful to mask off the tabs (as Jo did on the shows), otherwise you'll have to sand them down before they fit properly ( the paint makes them swell up a little).


I used my Gelli Plate and some of the new stencils to decorate inside and out, using stronger colours on the outside.



The stamping here is done with paint. I've fallen in love with stamping with black paint - it gives a really intense colour.


Hope you got a chance to watch the shows and enjoyed seeing all the different artwork.
