We had a fabulous day and created alot whilst having a good natter and a lovely lunch (thank you to Di for bringing lunch).
We decorated an art spool, a mini paper mache hanging and made a card. Here are my makes:
I started off my decorating an art spool using Prima papers and edging it with walnut stain distress ink.
I decided to go with a sewing theme so coloured cotton reels and die cut canvas die forms.
I then started to place them on top of the spool and when I was happy I glued them in place using cosmic shimmer glue.
Here is a side view of the spool. I finished by adding pleated ribbon around the edge of the spool.
I really enjoyed making this. Though got frustrated when I needed to use a hammer to get the spool to fit together after decorating with paper!!
Here I used Paper Artsy a layer of Fresco Finish paint followed by a layer of Crackle Glaze and a final layer of Fresco Finish paint. You can't see the crackle in the picture but it looked pretty awesome!
I then stencilled onto the canvas using paint and added some texture paste in a few places.
The images were stamped onto card and then painted before being glued onto the canvas.
After not being entirely happy with my paper mache hanging I decided to go back to what I love... that being Wendy Vecchi!!
I covered a card blank using Tim Holtz paper and stamped onto the background using Archival ink.
I then stamped the leaf border around the edge.
I stamped the 'Queenie' image onto card, cut it out and inked the edges.
I did the same with a quote and the butterflies.
I was really happy with how the card turned out....The perfect way to end the day!
So...that was my creations...here are Laura's:
And here are Di's:
I am sure you will agree that they created fabulous pieces of art! Great fun!
Thanks for looking....
