April project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit 10

Hi everyone

For this month I have turned my creativity over to a canvas for a change.  I used a 12x12 canvas, covered it using napkins and dictionary paper, sprayed it alot and then covered the whole thing over using bridal dress appliques lol.  Typical crafter - have one thing in mind and then change it completely.  I printed off the image and used silk flowers and pearl centres from my stash.

Now for the pics

April challenge over at Altered Eclectics 5

For this months challenge I put together this canvas for my daughter.  She has twins and whilst trawling facebook I found these fabulous pictures of them on the swings.  I knew I had to use them and enhance them on canvas.  

I used modelling paste through a stencil and sprayed using a purple top til half way down and green from bottom up.  The colour was far to strong so spent an absolute age dry brushing with white paint to make the background more subtle - took ages lol.  

For the frames I cut some twigs from my garden and roughly lay modelling paste over the top to give the impression of bark.   The flowers. leaves and metal pieces were colured using the same purple spray.  Voila and all done and dusted.  this is now hanging on her living room wall.

Now for the pics - enjoy!!!

April Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

For this months challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu is Vintage or Shabby Chic.  I altered a plain old jar using paints, crackle medium and wiped over with green antiquing cream by decoart and then varnished it completely.  I finished it off using a pale green grosgrain ribbon from a box of chocolates I believe.  I ask everyone to keep bits and pieces for me - even the tiny pieces of ribbon from the inside of clothing lol.  I used a paper rose also from my bit box.  I am determined to use stuff instead of just buying lol.

First time in ages...............12

I am blogging a project I have just made and it is not a DT piece.  I used a coffee jar, bottle and a home decor piece.  I painted them all black and added black leaves. white - ish colour silk flowers bought from a pound shop deconstructed and reconstructed, pearl spay, pearl lace and calico.  A simple project and I have to say I really do love them myself - makes a change!  

Now for the pics.

March Challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

So here we are again - challenge time over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for this month I altered an olive jar and I had gold in my mind lol and more gold and more gold.  I treated myself to some spray paints and a clear lacquer and this is the end result.  The metal pieces were from my overloaded stash lol.














Please head on over to Rhedd's and join in with our fun challenge and don't forget to give the DT ladies some love

March challenge over at Eclectic ellapu 2

For the challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu the theme is Spring colours or Easter.  

It has been a long, long time since making a card and I thought what the heck lol. 

 I used this gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles.  I coloured it using my prisma pencils and promarkers and then covered it in Rock Candy as you will see in the close up pic.  I embossed the white background and used ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment I had lurking about in the corner of my stamp drawer so that was handy! Quite a quick and simple card - just what the doctor ordered lol. 

So here are the pics.....




That's it for today - don't forget to head on over and join in with this months challenge

February challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

Hello everyone
It is challenge time over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for my project this month is an altered perfume bottle.  Firstly apologies for the quality of the before photo - worse than I thought but I think you can make out what it was like.

I believe it is an Yves San Laurent bottle
Anyway I used Silkies type paint which you mix powder with binding pase and dabbed various rich colours until I achieved the effect I wanted.   
Now for the pics





I used various metal filigree embellishments some of which I trimmed, small corners for the lid.
 I used pale pink inka gold over the metal to make it pop and I love the look. 
To finish off lots of red gems  I used glossy accents to stick everything to the bottle which also secured the lid. 


Thank you for dropping by and whyt not head on over to Rhedd's Creative Spirit to join in with the fun challenge this month which is always anything goes as long as it is altered or mixed media -NO CARDS OR PAPERCRAFT PLEASE
