Dream a little dream

At our last glue & stick meeting we created textured canvases using lots of PVA glue, gesso,lace, ribbon and spray inks. I love getting messy as this is right outside my usual card making.  Under the guidance of the talented Gail I managed to create this.

The diamond trim is from The Ribbon Girl which a real favourite at the moment.... instant bling without the hassle of sticked down individual stones.

The lace and flower trim has been well and truely melded to the canvas with layers of gesso and glue.

I lightly coloured it with a pale lavender spray which I wiped off quickly so there is just a suggestion of colour. I'm really pleased how it turned out as I'm usually very heavy handed and most of my spraying looks as though I've dragged it through the mud!!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

I wish I was about to show you some bright sparkly stones but I'm not. Sorry I'm still making cards with different folds and this week it's a diamond fold. Again instructions are from Splitcoaststampers
 I've used a Woodware owl stamp set. A similar one was free with Papercraft Essentials magazine which I spotted on Kim Dellow's blog. I've paper pieced the owl, my favourite method of colouring.

 Next is a card using those gorgeous images from Crafty Individuals
 I can't remember whose butterfly stamps I've used here I've had them for ages.

 Finally a LOTV image
Thanks for popping by and I'm sorry there's no diamonds maybe next time

Unfortunately not the season, but it can't be far away can it? I'm talking about the card style we were doing in class last week. Here's a few samples. It's a style that can be used for all occasions and the instructions are from Splitcoaststampers.

A very versatile card.
