Birthday tag......D

Hi all

I needed to make a birthday tag for a friend so kicked my own ass and got down to it.  The basis is a card which lace/ribbon is sold from.  I backed it with a postal design serviette and then used a stencil and modelling paste wiped over with cream paint.  I embossed some cream card and rubbed gold and pink over the top.  I used a metal butterfly, ivory doilies, cream and pink flowers, beige, taupe, ivory and pink lace, pearls, an old earring, feathers and ribbon from my stash.I made the frame using air clay in a mould I have, painted with taupe and rubbed over with pink.

That is basically it - no rambling from me tonight as heading to bed and needed to get his posted.

Hugz to all

Prezzie for colleagues birthday...D

Hi everyone

Before I head off into ramblings of a part time crafter I would just like to remind you all that 1st Feb is fast approaching which means 1st challenges of 2014 for Eclectic Ellapu and for Altered Eclectics.  So get crafting away and please join in as usual.

Right onto my latest make

I made a desk tidy for a colleagues birthday.  I made it out of foamboard and after many expletives I finally managed to get it all to fit lol.  I covered it in modelling paste and then painted in lilac.  the inside I painted purple - her fav colours.  I used cosmic shimmer on paper flowers and silk leaves and randomly stuck them to the sides.  The picture does not do it any favours - looks far better in real life lol.

Now for the pics

Pressie for a colleague....D

Just a quickie post as too tired for rambling lol.  I used a paper mache box.  Painted and sealed it inside and out.  I used papers from my stash.  The flowers and stickpin I made.  I edged with lace and used wooden letters for the top.  The bling was a piece of old jewellery.  The metal butterfly is also from my stash - stoopid me forgot to take pics of the box side could kick myself as have already given it to Ruth lol - sorry x

Hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Hugz and love as always

Dads 80th birthdayn -- D

Happy weekend everyone

I do hope you are all well.  Only a couple of weeks until Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics start up again after a long well deserved break.  I do hope you will drop by and join in with the challenges.

Anyhow I have been working on these bits and pieces for my Dad's 80th Birthday.  I used a 16''x20'' canvas and an old frame which I altered for a family collage and 8'' letters instead of a card.  The letters I bought new from Hobbycraft.  I used modelling paste on the letters acrylics and gold, copper, silver, platinum buff over the top.  For the back of the letters I printed off pics of all the things he loves onto photo paper. Doris Day, his wife and siblings that are no longer with us, horse racing, growing vegetables and reading.  He can then display them either way.

I have to say this project took me a long time, alot of photo paper and printer ink but I am pleased with the end result.

Anyway here is overload of pics lol.



Sorry for the overload of piccies but it is what it is lol

I do hope you enjoyed your visit and please call again.
