Guest DT spot at Frilly & Funkie!

Hi everyone, second post of the day! I was absolutely delighted to be chosen as a Frilly and Funkie favourite and be given the opportunity to create a project for their current 'Things with Wings' challenge.

Hope you'll hop across and take a look .

I decided to create a little box canvas and chose  a winged angel stamp from Crafty Individuals. Very vintage colours with a hint of pink.

The embossed sides.

Canvas trim and embellishments.

The final piece. Thanks for stopping by and hope you'll be able to join in with the challenge. 

'Time Flies' at Stamps and Stencils

Hi everyone, first of 2 posts from me today. Over at Stamps and Stencils Yvonne is our very talented host this month and has chosen 'Time Flies'...very apt for me at the moment! We would like to see clocks, watches or any other time related element as  a focus of your project. Please do hop across and see what the talented DT have created to inspire you.

I've created a 'time' inspired panel. The starting point for this was a gelli print in vintage colours.

I thought the green stencil/ mask I'd used on the right looked a bit like a clock face so grew it from there. Some clear embossing paste through a clarity stencil and sanding the edges to distress it followed.

Stamping in archival inks.

The print was pulled onto a canvas textured paper.

Treasure gold had to appear!

I think it just adds that finishing touch.

The second post will be along shortly... a bit like buses, nothing from me for a while and then 2 at once! Craft room's coming along nicely, decorating finished but oh boy finding a place for everything is a challenge...and it all fitted in before in less room! Well it was overflowing if I'm honest. I'm still not up and running properly as I can't find half my stuff so my creations are with reduced supplies :-).

Thanks for stopping by, hope to be back blogging and visiting quite soon.
