Sheena Douglass One Day Wonder

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a nice weekend ? 
The lovely Sheena Douglass will be launching some new fab stencils and stamps this Thursday as a One Day Wonder on Create Craft Tv, I was very lucky and was asked to make some samples for the launch. 
What do you think…..
I love this image, and she comes with some fantastic other stamps, I have used mainly Aquatints to create this, the wood was created using one of the new stamp sets and is actually a full tree but I used just the branches to create the wood…can you see the eyes ? how great are they !! 

I used sea salt technique with my Aquatints to create the back ground for this, this is one of the new stencils launching, i love the corners and they can be used on so many projects. 

This wolf is awesome ! Sheena is also launching a great script stamp set which includes two different font styles, i have used one on the background of this card.

Aquatints again on this card, this time i used Faux bleaching technique along with one of new stencils and stamps. 

I loved making this card, I have used my Aquatints again and using gesso and distress ink with one of the new stencils, i then used one of the new stamps and stamped onto acetate, i then created a bow front with the acetate.
I hope you like all the samples, Sheena will also be showing Aquatints, gilding waxes and mixed media kits.
The shows are on Create and Craft on Thursday 11th December at the following times:
8am GMT
11am GMT
2pm GMT 
4pm GMT
7pm GMT 
Make sure you check the shows out, I will be back with some more samples later this week. 
Happy Crafting

Unlock your creativity…..

Hello lovelies, I hope you all had a lovely weekend ? The big countdown to Christmas has began ! 
But I have something non Christmas to show you today. I have been playing with some more of the Lazer cuts from That Craft Place , and also Spectrum Noir Aquatints…what do you think ? 
I have to say sorry about my rubbish photos, my good camera broke and until i get a new one i am stuck with my old one, which isn’t the greatest. 
I have used the Bright & Beautiful Set of Aquatints and also the gold from the Essentials set. The wooden lock is from That Craft Place and I have Gessoed it and then built up layers of Acrylic paint and Aquatints. 
 Once I built up the layers I gave a thick layer of Decoart One Step Crackle and I rubbed the Gold Aquatint over the top, you can see here just how bold the orange from this set it. 
 I LOVE the purple in this set, here I let the pink run into the purple. 
Incase you haven’t heard of Aquatints (where have you been ?!?!) they are a professional liquid watercolour, they come in 6 different sets and have so many different uses. they also come with pipettes and brushes…which are brilliant quality, you can find all the info and the set here
Also don’t forget to check out the fantastic range of Lazer Cuts from That Craft Place, there really is something for everyone 🙂 
Happy Crafting 🙂

How great are they ? to purchase any of the images please head on over to the Shop.

For my design team card I have used Happiness. 
I went for a vintage/grunge feel for this card, I printed onto Kraft card and then coloured the heart with my Spectrum Noirs, I then sprinkled over some Ruby red Slippers.
I used my Dylusions to flick some colour across and stamped using a Script Stamp.
I added some cheesecloth & Stitched around the edges and mounted it onto a card blank.

This shows the Ruby red Slippers., and shows where I randomly sprinkled some around the card.

That Craft Place Anything goes/Christmas.

Morning all, I can’t believe it is Christmas in just a few days !!! This year certainly has flown by ! 
It is time for our last challenge at That Craft Place, and the theme is Christmas/Anything goes ! 
Here is my design team make for this challenge….
I decided to make a Mixed Media Canvas for this challenge, I love doing these (I have been asked for a tutorial so will be doing one in the new year), for those of you with a Silhouette you can now get Silhouette Chipboard (Lisa sells it in the Shop) and it is fantastic…It doesn’t handle the delicate designs too well, but on this I created the Honeycomb, the “create” letters, the brackets, Scissors & the flourish. It takes various mediums very well and I have used Distress inks/stains, Gesso & Dylusions on it with no problems at all…so I highly recommend getting some if you are into your chipboard. 
All the other Elements on here are all from the lovely Lisa, including the paints & gilding waxes. 
I hope you like what I have created, and keep your eyes peeled for the tutorial. 
The design team have created some gorgeous makes for this challenge, head on over to the blog to check them out, and why not enter whilst you are there ?
