Step Mothers day ..D

Good morning all

I finished my mothers day card for my step mother last night and here I am posting before going to work.  It has been a while since making a card.  I have been into my mixed media and altered art for so long now I have almost forgotten how clean card making is and I find it difficult lol.

All I have really done with this is used papers, photo from internet, lace and pearls - VOILA! Oh I fogot I used glue too lol.

That was quick huh.

Well must dash in a bit so here are the pics of my creation.

Lots of green......D

Hi all
This will be a very quick posting as I desperately need my bed - it is screaming at me lol.

I altered a box for a friend at work and this is her favourite colour.  I used oddments of lace sporadically, a little pearl trim which was kicking about on my table (lurking in the shadows lol)  a large rosette flower with an old pearl brooch in the middle.  On the front I used a butterfly - a butterfly the recipient of this box gave me in a bag of broken jewellery she gave me.  I always like to use the pieces given to me alter them and give them right back lol.

I used a dark jade paint, then added white and brushed lightly over the top. I then used a rub n buff over the textured areas.  I then sealed it with mod podge.
Now for the pics.  

Hugz and love to all and thank you for visiting me - do call back whenever you like lol.

Wings or Flowers & Butterflies ....D

Hmmmm WINGS or Flowers and Butterflies going on over at Eclectic Ellapu - lots of scope there.  And guess what-I did not rush to get a canvas for a change.  I used and old frame insert with frames cut out.  I cut off three of them and added mountboard to the corner space.  Hats off to you all who are actually understanding my explanation lol. 

I painted the front and the backing in various shades cream/beige/brown.  I cast the cherubs using my molds and plaster of paris.  These also had a coat of paint and gold rubbed over the top.  I sprayed a few flowers, leaves and buds from my stash using brown and gold stain - cant remember whether they were dylusions or not. - sorry.  The twisted lace had the same treatment.  I used tiny wooden letters for the wording and rubbed them in gold.  Thats it really.  I do hope you like my project and why not head on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in the challenge.

Hugz and love to all

Truly old vintage look! D

Well posting three times in one weekend is truly unheard of but here I am lol.  

I wanted to create something vintage in the way I see vintage as.  Old, neglected and dirty from time gone by.  Something dragged down from the attic and something so vintage and fragile - time worn!

I made another tag and will be using it for a birthday so time and effort not wasted.  Hope she likes it as her motto is less is more - don't think it fits that lol.  Oh well.

Here goes a list of things of broken down supplies - took me longer to do this lol

Chipboard tag
cream paint
distressed and TH ink pads - vinyage photo, and brushed cordruoy
several papers distressed and torn
2 of my own crochet flowers
a rosette - torn and cut about
Pretty pink lace - torn and made ragged
vintage image on photo paper
buttons broken by my own fair hands with help of wire cutters lol
a couple of cotton doilies torn and battered
a tag made and stamped with the words Time is precious
Torn and tattered edge of doily for the hanger
everything has been douse in ink, kicked round the room and lawn mowered lol.

Now for overload of pics and I hope you all like it a little at least lol....


Not done this in a while! - D

That is making creating two projects in 1 day and actually posting them lol.  

I hadn't made a tag for quite a while and just fancied it for a change.  I painted the background then once again the brick wall stencil and modelling paste was screaming out at me to use it again lol.  I love this technique as it is so effective as a wall.  So I obliged and made it look like a tunnel.I painted over the top and sprayed Adirondack's over the top.  I used rub over the stones.  I then used another stencil with brown paint to give it the look of the road under the tunnel shape.  I stamped TH man with umbrella and used the sentiment from the same set.  I then added the words, drawer pull and cog by Tim Holtz with a couple of random picture turns and pen nib.  I do hope you like this and please feel free to follow me and come back for another visit.

Just in time.....D

Well here I am again with an altered clock - a clock I bought second hand for a fiver.  It was a really cheap looking plastic  and saw it as a challenge for me lol. I coated the sides with paper napkins to give a creased effect and the top and botton a brick stencil with paste.  My fav stencil at the moment.  I used paste, my fav technique as it looks different everytime, on the clock face and on the backing inside.  I used several coats of paint, sprays and rub until I was pleased with the effect.  I broke the pendulum off and stuck it skewiff lol.  I used 4 charms for the points on the clock and used buff on those and the clockhands.  I painted the back and sides with silver paint - took several coats and was losing the will to live lol.  Now I will swamp you all with pics!  SORRY


Well thats it from me for now - may be back later but don't hold your breathe ha ha ha!
