Summer, the season of Weddings!!

I made this card using a Lili of the Valley Stamp and copics to colour it.

A Wedding in Germany started off the season for me this year, seeing a lovely couple, Nadja and Fabian marry in June, and this is the card I made for them.

I also made an intricate hexagonal album in contemporary black and white colours with a matching box. I was very peased with it and would love to show you the finished item, but I forgot to photograph it before I posted it to Germany :( Boohoo .... I won't do that again!

Any way, I have been away far too long and shall endeavour to be more regular with my posts, so I hope you will call by again soon. Love to you all . Jo x

Paint Fusion Cards

So here are 3 cards I made using Toppers painted using the Simply Sweet Stamps from Sheena Douglass and painted using the Paint Fusion technique as taught to me by Katie of Sheena's Design Team. Katie holds Paint Fusion classes at TwoCatsCrafts

It is a great way to produce very effective results. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest creations.

Off to cook the BBQ now.........

Mum's Shoes get a new lease of Life!

This pair of shoes belong to my Mum. She was very distressed after spilling some red wine on the front of her new cream leather shoes......So I suggested that she let me bring them home, and 'fix' them for her....... and this collage shows their journey.... I used some leather patches' recycled buttons and the Tattered Florals sissix die to make a coordinating flower for each shoe, which I have hot glued to the front. I am very pleased with the result, and I will let you know how they are received!!

Paint Fusion

Hello there, This is a card topper that I made this week using the Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion method, and taught to me by one of her Design Team- Katie.
The background is made using the wet on wet method and water splashes on mountboard.
I used the Sheena Douglass Berries and Blossom stamp set for the Leaves and blossoms, and used her paint technique to paint them. I used the scrolls from the same set and embossed them and the edges with Wow powders....
I have since attached it to a dark square card and am delighted with the impact.
I shall be doing many more soon.....

Decoupage Nest of Tables

I have been encouraged to share my latest work with you. It was a secondhand set of oak tables, which as you can see now looks completely different...

I have painted and crackle glazed the legs and sides, then used some lovely K&Co, and 7 Gypsies papers which I got from Jackie at Two Cats Crafts.
These were 'torn' and glued to the tops with my own recipe 'Mod Podge', with a central panel, made up of a flower cut from the paper and matted onto a contrasting one, edges inked to give depth.
I finished off with 3 coats of diamond finish acrylic varnish.

They now have pride of place in my living room, and are Sooo useful.
Hope you like them xx
