Feathery pocket letter with Felicity


Hello! Felicity here today to share a sweet pocket letter with some super cute feathers.
I love sending pretty mail. It fills my heart with such goodness when I create something special for someone. Especially when I am battling life.  Sharing some love and writing a little note someone can remind me that are in this  battle together.


Us mothers can relate to the struggle in simply getting things done. We don't need to be super hero to be kind.

 This little pocket letter I exchanged with a wonderful lady who also has two boys and a girl. She can relate to the battle of motherhood and together we can encourage each other to solider on.

I popped lots of prettiness and layers in.

Happy mail can sure brighten someones day.

Watercolour technique with Joan



Joan here today sharing a "Watercolor Technique".


For this watercolor technique I started my using a wash of orange watercolor in the upper right hand corner and on the left side of the page.  I just used a set of Crayola watercolors, you know the kind you buy for kids.




I wanted to create some texture so while the watercolor was still wet I used a piece of plastic wrap and scrunched it on top of the watercolor areas.  This was the hard part.  First fighting with the plastic wrap and second letting it set while it dried completely.


This is the result of the plastic wrap over the watercolor.  I love the added texture.


Next I used a stencil and applied some Super Heavy Gesso randomly on the page.


I'm not very patient so I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time. 



For my creative process I went through my stash and pulled any items that I thought might work for this page.  Through the process of elimination I finally decide what papers and embellishments I was going to use.


After putting the page together I decided it was missing something so I found the perfect ink and did some stamping around the edges.


Not quite satisfied with the page I added some mist and gathered some flowers ... just in case.


Adding the flowers to this page was the finishing touch that it needed.








Thanks for visiting.
We hope you'll get a chance to play along with our challenge this month.

Canvas on Canvas tutorial with DT Tania

Hello there!

Tania with you today to share a quick tutorial on how I made my Canvas on Canvas for this months Mood Board Challenge.

To begin I adhered the smaller canvas in the top right hand corner of the larger one!  Then I added a thick layer of heavy gesso with a sponge to give it that textured look.  I dried this coat off and then repeated the process.


Once dry I added some spritzes of water and then sprayed the canvas with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays and continued until I was happy with the depth and amount of colour.


Here I added a lot more colour once the first coat had dried.


Next up I used a script stamp and randomly stamped over the canvas.


I gave my chipboard pieces a rough coat of gesso. I them sprayed them with black Dylusions sprays, this helps the colour spray adhere and not soak through the chipboard.



I sprayed my flowers with the same sprays that I had used on the canvas so the colours all toned in with each other.


Next was the fun bit embellishing my canvas.



Once I was happy with all the embellishments and stuck them down, I finished off my canvas by adding some gold glass glitter and flicking some black spray randomly over the canvas.


Well that's all from me today!! 

Also don't forget we still have our gorgeous March Mood Board Challenge going.....
Until next time, thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting.

Scrapbook layout by Candy

Welcome everyone Candy here with another project for May.

Wow how the months are flying by, 
it will be Christmas before we know it.
The layout I have created using the Kaisercraft Ubud Dreams Collection.
I thought this would suit the mood board perfectly.

 

This is a photo of my daughter Tracy fishing.
This month we encourage you to use feathers on your project and I thought
the feathers would soften, making it a bit more feminine.









Here is the moodboard


Thank you for visiting

I'm sharing a layout + process video to show you a feather technique for this months moodboard.

In my process video you'll find a little technique to make these arrow feathers.
With thanks to Michelle Grant who provided this technique during a class.
