Rochester Workshops. June 2015 - Mixed Media, Canvas One

Hello all you Bloggers and followers. I  hope you are having a great weekend. 
I've just finished off my first sample, Mixed Media Canvas, for my June, Rochester Kent, Workshops.
6th and 13th June. Some places are still available but are filling up fast.
Brusho Paints mixed in with 3D Gloss Gel and a whole heap of other mediums!
I've had so much fun and made a super, duper mess whilst creating this 8 inch x 10 inch Canvas.

... and there's MORE to come ... or will be, when its out of my head and down on another Canvas!
Thanks for looking at my Blog today.
Rose and Michelle from Croydon... be good to see you both, when you can pop down x

Crealies New Patchwork Die No 1. Along With A Few Stencils.

Hello Everyone .. A quick post to share a few cards with you, created using some brand new Dies from Crealies called Patchwork Dies.

I'm featuring the Patchwork Number 1 set, along with a beautiful Poppy Stencil from Sweet Poppy Stencils and Hibiscus Flowers from Designs by Ryn.

All the images were coloured, through the stencils, using brightly coloured inks, then I applied some 'Sparkle Gel' from Imagination Crafts over the top, through the stencils. I removed the stencil and allowed the gel to dry.  More samples soon from the three other sets available direct from Crealies or Oyster Stamps in the UK.

Thanks for looking at my Blog today.

See you soon.

A New Lavinia Stamps Challenge Starts Today!

Morning Everyone.

Today is the start of a NEW challenge from Lavinia Stamps.  

 ' Pink or Blue or Both! '   
You could win a Voucher worth a WHOPPING £40 to spend in the Lavinia Stamps Web shop.
My DT project features a background of two shades of Pink, using Adirondack Inks then stamping onto the oval shaped Stampboard and  'scraping off' (with a scraping off tool!) some of the coloured ink to reveal the white clay top, of the board underneath.
A dib,dab,dob here and there with a gold pen..... job done! The stamps I've used are Fairy Pods, Zen Leaves and Bubbles.
