Xmas cardboard letters

Entered this into the MMMC challenge

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge 19 - silver & gold



Decorated cardboard letters from Hobbycraft. Firstly I painted with Indigoblu Gesso to give them a coating of white. I then stamped PaperArtsy MN39 mini Christmas stamp with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke randomly over the letters. The final touch was adding Indigoblu Mega-flake Lancashire Rose






Hanging Christmas Cards

Started on the Christmas decorations with the twinkling card strings. Now to add a few more cards.

Crazy birds Christmas cards


So enjoyed making these Christmas cards from the Tim Holtz crazy birds collection. Used stamps and stencils for the backgrounds to create a one layer effect and stamped and cut out the crazy birds and added Christmas hats and separate greeting which was printed off from a word doc. Started with more traditional colours for the red robin and then included pink, blue and green.

Indigoblu Challenge 33 -Time Flies

Following my top 3 place on the last Indigoblu challenge I've now completed my next piece for the Time Flies challenge.

http://indigoblublogchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/11/challenge-33-top-3-inspiration-time.html


I wanted to include clocks and something that flies but didn't have any IndigoBlu clock stamps. I've improvised and used a tri-boss embossing folder for the clocks and my Indigoblu stamps included the butterfly and dragonfly. My favourite colours at the moment are orange and grey. The inspiration for these colours came from some towels I spotted in John Lewis's. (These will be purchased for our refitted shower room recently completed).


I've taken step by step photos to show how I created my piece of artwork.












New to blogging

Still new to blogging and keep tweaking the layout and content. Now added some of my own artwork on my title header to show what I've created.
