Give your heart the wings to fly class

Today I've been teaching my angel wings canvas at Art from the Heart. What a great day, loved seeing everyone again. I just love being there it makes me feel instantly happy and creative.
If you've not been before then give it a go, everyone is welcome :)

Here's Gemma and Donna in the naughty corner again.
Little Ella is just brilliant, she has no fear and just gets stuck in.

Ruth, Marilyn, Pam, Dawn

Lovely messy workdesk!

We ran out of time today and didn't quite finish the wings. 
I said I would put up pictures on how to finish it.

After you've stuck on your feathers start putting on the top shorter feathers.

Here's a closer look. I've painted some dark brown on the feathers under the next row to add some shading. I also painted some gesso and gold paint on top of the fabric.  

Paint your heart and stick it to the canvas with gel medium, or glossy accents or even Pinflair.

Cut out your words and distress the edge with Evergreen Bough distress ink.
I've used a crackle stamp with some gold pigment ink to crackle the words too.

Hope you can finish your canvases xxx

See you soon

Secret Garden folding photo book

When Leandra over at PaperArtsy asked the Alumni guest designers if they wanted to join in one more time to making something for the blog, I jumped at the chance. 

I wanted to make something little and pink! And here it is, its a Secret Garden photo book. 

I have a walkthrough of how I made this over on the PaperArtsy blog.
Tiny arty things make me smile :)
