GD for Crafting by Designs

Hello to you all...I am so honoured this month to have been chosen as one of the March Spotlight Winners over at "Crafting by Designs " As a result of this I was asked to be a guest designer  and jumped at the chance.

I have made a birthday card using one of my Gelli papers and some Deco Art Paints with Tims Butterfly . I used the technique  again that I saw of Barbara Gray on you tube. I have used this a lot.xxx

Be Happy

Hello to you all, I am back again, I have been playing with some Stampbord just lately, I have some 2inch square pieces.... I covered the entire piece with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and once dry stamped my image and sentiment using Black Versafine,I then heat set this and using a scrapper tool started scrapping out the areas that should be white. Once this was all dry I sanded the edges back to reveal the  white clay.

 I have added some magnets on the back and made it into a Fridge Magnet.

I have done another one of these but you will have to 
wait a couple of weeks as it is for a GD piece  xxx

What I used
Distress ink Chipped Sapphire
Visible Image Stamps-Vision Incognito,Be Happy Set
Black Versafine

Deco Art Makeover

Hello ......I have made over a pine dressing table mirror. I have had this years ever since pine was all the go. I am making over the entire bedroom suite as it is all pine and perfect condition....
So I thought I would show the mirror.

I have the lovely people over at Deco Art and the Blogger Outreach Program  to thank for the materials.



This is what I started with

I simply gave this a good wash and once dry gave it two coats of Chalky Finish Everlasting,I could have got away with one coat .

I then stencilled all around the edges using Old French Script stencil and Chalky Finish paint  Everlasting


Once this was all dry I sanded it down to distress the edges and where I thought the paint would wear naturally. I then applied the Creme wax and once dry buffed it up with a soft cloth This protects the paint finish.

The pots were decorated by gluing some string around them and painting with more of the Chalky Finish New Life
I just added some roses and twine bows to finish and added candles to the pots.xxx

Items used

Americana Decor Chalky Finish Everlasting Paint
Americana Decor Chalky Finish New Life Paint

Use Kraft Card Inspiration

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is

Use Kraft Card



I have used a Craft tag and attached it to a Craft Card today.



I painted my tag with Fresco Paints layering up Snowflake ,Rose and Sky and finishing with a layer of white. I then stamped on the grid marks with some Faded Jeans distress ink followed by the JOFY images and sentiment with Black Versafine ink.

 I then coloured my images with Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress ink


Finally inked up the edges of both the craft card and tag with Black Soot distress ink attached a bow and fixed the tag to the card base.
