Hi everyone. Well blogging two days in a row!!!!!! I just couldnt wait to share this with you. Today I went to a workshop with the lovely Michelle Webb which was organised by the amazing Sue Tucker of Art Workshops. I have to say that I had the most fantastic time. Michelle demonstrated this lovely canvass which everyone made and the lads and lasses that went just topped the day. It was such fun. A great big thank you to all of them. Well I wont be around tomorrow as its my sons 40th birthday as well as mothers day so we are meeting for lunch and then going on to visit my daughters mother in law to say happy Mothers Day to her. Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.

My MDF Tissue Box after a make over.
Well ladies just a quick blog as I am really pushed for time. Tomorrow I have a workshop with Michelle Webb and cant wait to meet with crafty pals old and new. I know I should blog more often but I really havent had much to share with you as what I have been doing cant be posted yet but today I can across a post for Hels 300th Sunday Challenge blog and just had to join in. You should see the candy to be won. Believe me if you have time to make something in the theme then its worth joining in and Hels blog is always an inspiration. I havent time on this post to go through how I achieved the makeover as I am pushed for time but if you would like me too I will post it after the weekend. All I will say is there was papers, stamping, inking, treasure gold and very mucky paws. The flowers took the longest as there were fuve and all were stamped cut and coloured. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

CBN DT Inspiration

Good morning all. Hope  you all had a lovely weekend and that some of you like myself were lucky enough to visit the Harrogate Great North Eastern Paper Show. I had a lovely time and met for the first time a lot of lovely ladies who have been crafty facebook friends for some time. I have to say that I was a tad dissapointed with the stands this time. It was smaller. a lot of companies missing but nice never the less.

Well today I am shareing with you the card I made for the Crafty Bloggers Network mid month challenge inspiration. the sponsors being Imagine That Digi Images and the theme nature. I chose this lovely sheep as I thought it very seasonal as the first spring lambs are now being born. I must apologise for the quality of the photo. Something not right is happening with my camera and the last few photos that I have taken have not done the images justice despite doing some auto correct on them. never mind for those of you that are interested I will give you a quick run down of how it was made. It is an 8x8 card base. I printed image and cut out with die cut and then coloured with pro markers and wink of stellas then dusted with distress ink. I then mixed some silver mica powder with water and dabbed into it with some scrunched up cling film and patted over the top. I then osed the next size up die and cut out with a contrasting Imagine that matching paper. This was then mounted onto another contrastin paper and then black card. I used a sticky back cotton lace to wrap aound bottom of cardand made three flowers with a Tattered Lace die and Imagine that paper. Two buttons from my stash were added to finish. Hope you like it.

Well off to do a bit of housework. Hubby has been sunning himself in Spain for the last week and is home tomorrow so want to fool him into thinking that I have done nothing but housework since he has been away. Haha.

Another canvass

Hello bloggers. Happy weekend. We'll here is my latest canvass. Again this one took very little time and was really good fun to do. I gessoed a canvass in black and them stuck on a mixture of Suzicrafts fandangales and Indigo Blue altered egoes.  This was done pretty randomly until the canvass was pretty well covered and I did put double and triple layers in some places to give more dimension and texture.  I then covered in black gesso.  Out came all my Dylusion, fireworks and Cosmic shimmer sprays!!  I sprayed randomly with white and a mixture of bue and greens. To finish I edged with silver treasure gold and dusted around the canvass with the silver and gold. Finished. Hope you like it. We'll as I am on my own at the moment as hubby is sunning himself in Spain with the old boys I shall have to go and start making my own dinner. Lolx
Thank you for visiting.

From the I Pad

Well folks if this blog is a bit odd it's because I am trying to post from the I Pad. I don't think I am doing very well but practice makes perfect, hahax . This canvass was one I made on a visit to Suzicraft. When I got there Mr Splodgeaway. Our Tom was halfway through a class and he gave me a canvass and said go for it. This was the result. It was made in record time. I literally picked up 3 different Splodgeaway masks and gesso end through them. It the spaces in between I added more gesso stippling different patterns. The lightbulbs and cogs and clock were then placed on the canvass and gessoed over. They are manufactured by Splodgeaway from Splodgeaway board. The word time are chipboard which were painted with gesso. Stamped with a number stamp. Sprayed with a cosmic shimmer mist and then edged with Treasure Gold in silver. I stuck them on with glossy accents. Opus I forgot to say before I stuck them on I gave the canvass a fine covering with a silver acrylic paint. Sprayed lightly with a pale pink cosmic shimmer mist. I then used a gold spray and sprayed the Splodge  board pieces. I used treasure gold in gold around the pieces and edges of the canvas. Lastly I stuck a charm on the bottom right which I had coloured with treasure gold and edged the canvass with black soot distress ink. phew that was a marathon.

My apologies for any grammar and spelling mistakes.
I don't want to waffle any more but can I just say Abigail thank you and welcome tones followers and as always a big thank you for all your lovely comments.
