A Dream that didn't come true!!!! mixed media canvas.

Good morning my dears,  I should have been posting here
today to share a project I created for Wild Orchid Crafts but
sadly due to unforeseen circumstances I am no longer
a member of the Design Team!!!!! I will say no more
on the subject except to say I am very sad and disappointed
about the whole shenanigans!!!!! 




Anyways!!! I created this sweet mixed media canvas using
umpteen different techniques with stencils, pastes, paints, sprays
frantage and various other mediums.  I won't go into all the 
various methods as you would need a nice cuppa and a 
biscuit or two to get you through it.



A lot of love went into the making of my creation and it now
sits pride of place on my craft room wall as a reminder
of what could have been.

Thanks so much for popping in to visit, I hope you come
back and see me soon.

Hugs

Crafter's Companion DT - Round Friendship card Tutorial!!




Hello my dears I'm here today with my Friendship tutorial card which could be 
adapted to a Birthday or Mothers Day creation.  



1 (2)

Step One: Gather the dies, papers and glues necessary to create your card, you will need to score and burnish one A4 sheet pf white linen card stock to A5 size.  Using the largest circular die add to the folded card with tacky tape, leaving a small gap at the top of your card. once this is done you can cut out a complete circle using your largest circle.

2 (2)

Step Two: using the next size down circle die,  cut out the required patterned paper you've chosen, 
again taking the next size down circular die cut out a contrasting piece of paper and a second circle 
from the left over white linen card, this will give more structure to hold your sentiment in place 
once you've cut that out from the rest of your white card stock.

3 (2) suzi


Step Three: proceed to cut out the amount of flowers you would like to add to the card also your leaves, you can use the left over white linen card and colour your leaves using your chosen Spectrum Noir Alcohol pen.
 Once you have all your bits together it's time to assemble and add your embellishments if required.

I  hope you have fun recreating this project. You can also adapt the sentiment for a birthday card or a Mother's Day card.



Thank your for popping in to see me I hope you enjoyed your visit.
