April project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

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

Thanks for popping by and why not head on over to Rhedd's and join in with the fun

April challenge over at Altered Eclectics *

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.
