Dont Listen


Hi There .. so this is my final make for the Polkadoodles Ula Launch party. This time I used the gorgeous "Don't Listen" which you can find here

So last week we were cleaning my daughters room and, My hubby was trying to get the furniture back into her dolls house which she inherited off a friend .. but it was driving him insane as the rooms were to small to get his hands in so, he took a screwdriver and removed a few of the walls to make the rooms bigger and easier for her to play with. I squirreled them away into my little hoard of " I could do something with that stash"

So first of all I primed and then added texture with homemade texture paste and stencils from Tim Holtz and imagination crafts. When dry I sprinkled some Indigo Blu Lucious powders over it and spritz with water. I then added some distress ink - worn lipstick around the edges along with some Pebeo guilding wax.

For the door and fence I used Distress crackle paint and then rubbed in some guilding wax.

All the flowers and butterflies are from the Polkadoodles Helga range, which you can find here and then I added some texture to the flowers using some goodies from Anna Marie designs. Finally I added a liberal sprinkling of glitter.

Inner Beauty

 
 

Hi All,

My 4th Launch make from the fabulous Polkadoodle Ula range. This time I used Inner beauty which you can find here

I was rummaging through my boxes of things that I secretly hoard to turn into craft projects .. I came across this little bit of chipboard packaging & I had some craft mirrors, so I decided to turn it into a little compact Mirror.

I coloured the image up using Copic Markers & I covered the packaging with papers from Daisy Days which you can find here On the outside I also did a little stamping and stenciling.

I have not got the best photo of the mirror but I was trying not to get a picture of myself in my PJ's in the reflection. LOL

The dots have been stenciled through with white gesso. I then coloured the gorgeous Ula up using my copic markers.

I then used it to decorate a little notebook I found in a highstreet discount shop.

Be Yourself

Hi all,

I am so excited to be part of the Polkadoodles Ula release party. I love playing with this little lady, " Be Yourself" which you can find here These images are perfect for all genres of craft, however Nikky has designed them with Art Journaling and mixed media in mind.

I have loved getting loads of my stuff out to have a play with. This is a piece of packaging that I stripped back a little to reveal the corrugated card & painted over with Black Gesso. I then did some stenciling using indigo Blu stencils and various mediums Super thick slap it on, Lindy stamp gang mica powders & white Gesso.

I added some drips coming from the top with the Lindy stamp gang powders ( turned into water colour ) and some Kuretake Gamsi Tambi paints.

I painted over a little frame with Black Gesso & then added some Pebeo Gilding wax to it & to the edges of the main projects, including the exposed corrugated elements.

I created a ribbon out of the sentiment, coloured using the left over Lindy watercolour and distress inks. & finally I added a wire hook & embellished with a piece of broken jewellery The jewellery had pink details to it which didn't really match so coloured all the gems with one of my purple copic markers to make it tie in.

This now hangs by my desk in my loft, where I craft.
