Love Heart

For my second project for this month's Heart theme at Country View Crafts Challenges I have made a page in my Dylusions Dyary. The heart is a Wendy Vecchi stencil (with PaperArtsy paints on black card) so I added some of my favourite leaf and flower stamps from Wendy too. I added a Dylusions stencils in the background and some washi tape. Pop over here to see it!

With Love

The months are whizzing by and already it's June and time for another new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges. This month the theme is Hearts. For my submission I painted an MDF plaque and 'bumped' some hearts in the background. I covered an Art Part heart in red ink and then layered clear embossing powder on top (I made three layers) and over heated it slightly to create pits and a bloom on the finish (I like that mottled look!). In the pits I rubbed gold paint to add highlights. I very much hope you'll join in with us this month!

Creative Dyary - April

I have been remiss in not sharing my weekly pages in my Creative Dyary - perhaps aiming to share them monthly may be a little more achievable that weekly! So this is April:
Week commencing 3 April
This was one of the preprinted pages which meant I got to spend the week colouring it in whilst fitting in acting as the children's chauffeur!
Week commencing 10 April
Got to have an April Shower's inspired page...! I bought the raindrop stencil especially fro the show at Ally Pally! How did I not have one in my stash?!
Week commencing 17 April
My birthday week so a birthday inspired page! 
Week commencing 24 April
Love this chap standing next to the huge flower - I can't decide if he's sheltering, waiting for someone or hoping he'll grow as big as it one day!
