A Heart and Wings Easel CC

 HI all,

It's my turn on the blog today and I have a simple project for you
using the wonderful new product CO728096 CLEAR CASTING RESIN  

I have recycled a small easel frame painting it black then applying Papers 4 on the front and 
sanding it around the edges. 
 and adhered as shown. Using the Black Onyx Alcohol Ink I covered the legs to give it a little shine. I also placed bling on the bottom and covered it with Gold Alcohol Ink. I love the heart with wings mould I have so used the brilliant Clear Casting Resin and painted it with assorted alcohol inks. 
A few beads and bits and pieces and it was finished. I like it...

 




  I hope I have inspired you

to create glorious things

A Simple Photo Album. CC

 Hi all,

Today I have created a very simple photo album using toilet rolls and the gorgeous Seaside Girl papers.. I love this collection.. A friend said to me "Donna I cannot make all the things you do because I don't have all the tools and equipment you have". SO this is for her using just papers, stickers and the ephemera set. I did use a couple of alcohol inks on the compass.
I used four toilet rolls and made tags to go in the rolls for journalling for the photos.. 
The mats measured 3 3/4 inches x 2 1/8 inch. A video gives you a look at the little album, I hope you like it and it is so easy to make that I am sure you could do heaps of these with what you have in your crafting space..

Sand- Life is Better at the Beach.. Couture Creations

 Hi all, 

My turn on the blog today and I created a scrap page using the wonderful 

Seaside Girl Collection

I love this collection and I have combined it with the brilliant Clear Casting Resin.

I distressed Papers 3 around the edges and placed it on top of Blue Diamonds cardstock.

I used a piece of the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad behind the photo with a notecard from 
the Seaside Girl Ephemera Set.
I added a cluster of diecuts from the Ephemera set and the Seahorses die. 
With a fish and waves using the wonderful Clear Casting Resin and staining it with assorted Alcohol inks really enhanced the cluster.  
Using dies I had in my stash from the Sea Breeze Collection seemed to bring a cohesion to the whole thing. I loved the pelican and placed him on a diecut fence with the poles from the Seaside Girl Ephemera set. The stamped and diecut anchor is sitting on a shell from the Ephemera set. 
I plaited some string and added the banner on top with the 3D foam tape.. A frame on the photo and three seagulls from the Ephemera set on the top corner and it was finished..  This is so pretty.






Did you know that you can tint textured sand with alcohol ink? 


And I love this Quick Dry Adhesive which made placing the sand on the photo so easy.  


  I hope I have inspired you

to create glorious things

A Seahorse and a Bottle.. Couture Creations.

 Hi all,

It's my turn on the blog today and I have a project for you that I hope you like.. 

Couture Creations have brought out some new products and a gorgeous paper collection called

Seaside Girl.. 

For this project I have concentrated on the wonderful Clear Casting Resin.


A look at how the bottle is in real time..



So here is my setup to try and see how it all works.. I used an assortment of moulds I had in my stash just to try which works the best with the resin and my favourites was the pink rubber ones as it came out clean and easy as.


I love this maple syrup and have it on lots of things especially bacon yumm.. I took the label of the bottle and cut little bits of squares but you could use what ever you like and I adhered them down with the Quick Adhesive glue.


I waited until the glue set then did two coats over the whole bottle with a mixed media base drying between coats.


I wrapped cord around the bottle adhering it with the quick drying glue. 


The bottle and moulds ready to go..



Using several of the wonderful alcohol inks Pour over the bottle in sections.


I started with the Goldfish alcohol ink first and to be honest loved it straight away.


After all the inks were used this is what it turned out like..
I love it...



I wanted the Gold Pearl Alcohol ink to shine on the main focus, in this case the seahorse on the frame..


I used the Liquid Scrap Dots to hold up the seahorse and it worked a treat.. 


The fish was suppose to be in shades of blue and green but the gold ran and I liked it so much 
I left it as is..


The sides and the back of the bottle.




You can see with this laying down, the depth of the resin shapes..


A bonus for me was the alcohol inks left over on pieces of Alcohol Ink Papers..


  I hope I have inspired you

to create glorious things

Blooming Friendship ATC Coins - Couture Creations

Hi all,

My turn in the blog today and I thought I would use up some scraps I had left 

from this wonderful collection of papers, stamps and dies and decided to make three ATC Coins.  

BLOOMING FRIENDSHIP


ATC Coins are 2 1/2 inch circles. I usually cut 3 add adhere together to give me a thicker coin base to work on. I added a top layer from the gorgeous papers.


Coin 1 has a sticker from the Blooming Friendship Collection set which I adhered to black cardstock then adhered to the base using 3D foam tape.


Coin 2 I punched out another circle and added to the base with a heart on top which was punch out from the matching base paper. I added Glorious Gold pearls around it and then best friends with 3D foam tape. 


Coin 3 I punched another circle to add to the base then added a die cut flower and finally adhered friendship with 3D foam tape.





  I hope I have inspired you

Friendship is the Purest Love Layout - Couture Creations

 Hi all,

I have another layout for you using the gorgeous Blooming Friendship Collection which I love.

I wanted to use the three photos but yet try and make the layout clean and simple. 

I had seen another layout similar and decided to use the design but yet add my own spin as well. 

BLOOMING FRIENDSHIP

I cut all the elements then backed them all with black cardstock.



As soon as I seen the Crackle die I was going to do this. Using a pallet knife I spread some texture paste and used the Crackle die as a stamp to give it the shape as on the paper.
Once the paste dried I then went over it with ink to darken the cracks.




I used the Friendly Script stamp to stamp on the banners lightly (stamping on a scrap piece of paper first). 


A photo of the background base.


All the elements added. I punched two circles from the Blooming Friendship and matted them on to a black paper circle then onto a die cut flower.


 I hope I have inspired you

to create glorious things
