I've had a great weekend, went to Art from the Heart yesterday and made Dylusions Christmas cards. The new stamps and stencils are brilliant, they're so versatile you can do loads with them. We made heaps of wonderful backgrounds and two super big tags too.....I had to buy a pack of these, they're awesome! We listened to Jim Reeves and Michael Buble's Christmas songs to get us in the mood too, all that was missing was some mulled wine! I don't need much coaxing to get me in the mood for Christmas though, I love it.
I've made this canvas for the It's crafting time design team and also for a very generous crafty friend Mel aka The Yorkshire Fox. She doesn't know it yet but she will do when she see's this post. Mel gave me her wonderful Believe tag because I loved it that much, so as a huge thank you, I've made this for you Mel xx
I started with sticking down some scraps of paper and fabric then gesso'd over the top. I added some subtle colour here and there and gave it a gold and burnt umber edge. I covered a Wendy Vicchi Art Part flower with some patterned paper and distressed the edges with vintage photo Distress ink.
I've used my favourite spiral paper clips with some Beadazzles in the centre of the flower.
I used bright green florist wire to make a hanger and made some spirals wrapped round the end of a paint brush. I love this quirky addition.
I hope Mel likes it.
