French Stamps

Morning, happy Wednesday it's Rebecca here today! Today I'm sharing a card  that uses the new and exclusive French Stamps ribbon.  

I've actually kept my card very CAS and used the ribbon design and colour as the focus for my card.  I've tried to keep as much white space as possible by keeping the design in an "L" shape along the side and bottom. I've also rippled the ribbon to add some movement, but I made sure to leave the sentiment on show. 

Thanks for stopping by today,

A Wreath With A Difference...

The difference being that it is made of pencils!

These four colouring pencils were a freebie and as soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to do something out of the ordinary with them.  I pulled out matching 3mm satin ribbon and set to work trying to tie them together.  After lots of frustration I pulled out the glue gel and stuck them together!  When the gel had dried I added my ribbon and tied them in to bows.

Then this square of pencils sat on my desk for a week or more.  I just wasn't sure how to make it in to something...  I couldn't add it to scrapbook page as it is too dimensional.  I couldn't incorporate it in to a mini album as it wouldn't withstand much bashing around. 

There were two options left; a wreath - just a bit of quirky colour for the sake of it or a picture frame - finding a way to put a back on and getting it to stand by itself and adding a photo.  As of yet I've not managed to find a way of making it stand, so for now it is just a colourful little wreath hanging up in my art room.

Let me know what you think,

'Wish' Mini Canvas

Hi Everyone!  It's Laura here with a small mixed media canvas I've made.

It is just seven centimetres square, so really rather mini!

I played around with gesso, washi tape, water soluble art bars, matte medium and watercolour pencils on the background.

I added three shaped buttons with a needle and thread.

It was crying out for a word or two.  I don't really do words very well!  I looked at the rub ons that I had and decided 'wish' was the best fit.  I used my posca paint pen to highlight the rub on and then pushed it back in to the canvas by smearing the tiniest bit of gesso of the top.

Thanks for stopping by!

A girly card

Hey, hey! How are you doing? I hope you've been enjoying your weekend so far! It's my turn to share something with you on here today. I decided to make a card - one that I could use for many different occassions. It's always good to have some of those in stock, don't you think so?

Anyways, here's the card ...

I used the gorgeous pink ribbon from Crafty ribbons. You can find it in the pink mini pack, together with some other awesome pink ribbons. Trust me, you definitely want to hop to the store and check this mini pack (and other mini packs as well) out. Especially because you can now buy it for only 1 GBP. Is this a good bragain or what?! ;)
