So many fantastic creations, to be inspired by, and  : 

this challenge will run until 10am, Wednesday 2nd May. Our next challenge will start at 11am on Wednesday 2nd May.

The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

Please make sure to read our challenge rules before entering.


My inspiration creation for this second Challenge is made on mostly 
a piece of crumpled copy paper, after adhered to a White Greyboard Panel ,
I used Multi Surface Paints in Teal and Chestnut Brown , first dabbing over the paper 
with very diluted colors. After dry I stamped the script , from Textures Collection  Stamp  Set 3 
.The big circle with a smaller inside, is actually the roll from a finished taperoll-
as I wanted a big circle . Also used is the smaller circle from .
Textures Stamp Set - 2 


Onto tissue paper, I stamped Donna Gray`s beautiful tree,from her 
Carved Whimsy Wood stamp set. I tore around the perimeter
and adhered it to the paper with Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive.
Another few circles were stamped on top of it . 
From Lynne`s Affirmations set 3 -the line of birds was stamped onto a rest of the painted copy paper,
with Sky Blue, Brilliance ink , torn out and also adhered to the paper.
The tree trunk was extended a bit, by stamping the end of the trunk , between the line of birds. and sewed and adhered to the paper, too. 

With my sewing machine I sewed around one of the big circles , with teal thread, and
cut the thread to hang ,dangling.  4 teal buttons from my stash was also sewed onto the paper .
Paper was adhered to the panel, and also a piece of canvas,netting, teal fabric ,below the
birds. Lynne`s Affirmation ,from set 1 was stamped and adhered to the teal fabric,and another
button carefully sewed on.  Around the perimeter of the panel I painted with diluted Chestnut Brown ,and stamped a few buttons, from Textures Collection Stamp Set -3.

I think this ends my rather long story, and am thanking you so very much if you followed
me all the way to here :-) 

Love and hugs

GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES


April is here ,hopefully with a lovely spring to visit too, very soon.


This months Challenge called :" GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES "
made me think of so many possibilities, as where we look there
are circles in life . 


I chose a White Greyboard Panel ,to which I first did nothing !!
But started on a piece of normal copy paper, painting it with a mix of 
Multí Surface Paint in Green - Lime- and a little Mustard Yellow..
From the paper I tore a piece which was adhered to the panel.



I then stamped circles using stamps from :Textures Stamp-Set  2- and 3- and
also from Nature`s Faces -Set 1 by Melina .They were stamped
using Archival Ink ,Jet Black and Brilliance ,Moonlight White .


Pieces of handmade brown paper scratches were adhered to
the button and a piece of cotton lace also painted with a bit of the green mix, and brown,
was together with a handrolled rose adhered , too, forming more circles!!
The rose is made from a circle cut into a spiral ,and then ,from outside, turned around itself, and hold in place ,using a hot-Gluegun.
 A pair of Tim Holz paperdolls , and a stick from the garden  rolled 
with a green piece of fabric, and a string , were also adhered to the paper.


Making holes with my Crop A Dile and inserting sari silk ribbon , finished the project!!
.................................

This challenge will start at 11am on Wednesday 4th April.

The winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in our online shop and our Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.
