A JOFY Plaque

Hello...I hope you all have a lovely Easter.

I am sharing a wooden plaque today,

I started by coating my wood with Gesso and then blue acrylic paint.  I inked up a stamp from one of the JOFY sets I think it looks like a wire fence so stamped onto the background.

I then painted on the grass using some green and white paint

The flowers were stamped onto one of my Gelli monoprints and then fussy cut
before adhering to my background.

Last of all came the sentiment and I splattered some white specks all over and edged with
black soot Distress ink.

A Little Bit of Shabby

Hello....My card share today is slightly shabby, I have used one of my Gelli backgrounds and roughed the edges up,the sentiment is from Bee Crafty. I think it would have been better stamped in a lighter colour really, but to late now.   I added some ribbon, flowers and diecut a couple of butterflies.xxx

Mini Albums

Hello to you all, I am so sorry for the lack of blog posts lately, I made a couple of Mini Albums for a change and the family inundated me with orders for more. Much as I have loved making these they are time consuming...
Anyway I quickly photographed the last 4 of them before they were whisked away. I would have liked to have shown you the insides but they were so difficult to take pics of.  

Normal service has now resumed

Blogger Outreach

Hello, I am sharing a set of cards today, I have made these using Deco Art products for the Outreach Program.

I started by having a Gelli session armed with just 4 pots of paint, (two Blues,White and Silver) and two stencils. I must say the finish with these paints is so smooth the Metalic Silver added a lovely
shine. The photo's do not do them justice.

I decided to make someThank you cards and a box to hold them in. Each one is different

I Went through the Dandelion stencil with black ink after I cut out what I wanted for my cards then added a sentiment to each of them before attaching them to the card blanks.

Two more

Finaly the box that I added some glitter and a Belly Band  to hold my cards

Items used
Deco Art Media Fluid paints- Titanium White-Primary Cyan-Cerulean Blue-Metalic Silver
Americana Mixed Media Stencils -Tie Dye- Dandelion
White card

Industrial for Country View

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Wow this was a bit of a hard one for me, I wasn't sure what do do for Industrial so I really hope you like my first make.

A card for Dad

I started by die-cutting some pieces I thought might be useful and painted them with a rusting paste

 My background was one of my Gelli papers on which I inked up some stamps from a Hot of the Press set.

I assembled the pieces onto some black card  stuck it down and thought something was missing

 I made a tag and some studs and diecut the Dad word

And this is the finished result
