Man On A Tightrope Postcard

Hi everyone, very cold and snowy here today.

To day I'm sharing the postcard that I've made for the UK Stampers February postcard swap.
I'm also entering it in the Take A Word Silhouette challenge.

I covered my postcard with some patterned paper that came with a Stampington magazine. I stamped some script and stamped the Paperartsy buildings in black Archival ink. I also stamped the Tim Holtz man on a tightrope and words with black Archival. The little birds were die cut with an Impression Obsession die. I edged the postcard with a felt tip.

I've added a couple of snowy photos.

Josh and Murphy enjoying a good sniff round a tree.

This photo was taken from my dining room at lunchtime.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me, enjoy what's left of the day. xxx Hazel.

E is for Elephant

Hi everybody, still not a lot of crafting being done at the moment but I've managed to make a journal page for the Art Journal Journey challenge the theme was chosen by Rike and is Animals A - Z.

I painted the edge of the page with black acrylic paint and stamped the flowers onto a geli print, I tore the edges and adhered it to the page. I coloured the flowers with felt tips and stencilled some gold Imagination Crafts starlight paint. I used a wooden block to stamp the black elephants. The little elephant image was on the front of a card that a friend sent me.

The flower stamp is by Elusive Images.

Thank you for visiting my blog, have a lovely day. xxx Hazel.

Hi everybody, I've my Dylusions Creative Dyary week 3 to share with you today.

I'm entering my diary in the Try It On Tuesday Fire and Ice challenge.

This is my finished diary spread.

This is how the diary came.

I painted the diary page with blue Fresco paint and stencilled the snowflakes, I added some stickles.
The jumper is part of some junk mail, it was a grey drawing that I coloured with felt tip pens. I added a few doodles and wrote "what you need on a cold and frosty morning is a nice warm wooly jumper"

Sweetheart Box

Hi everyone, I can't believe that it's February already and time for another Altered Eclectics challenge, as always the theme is Altered Art/Mixed Media, no cards of ATCs allowed.

For my design team project I've decorated a heart shaped box that had toiletries in it.

I covered the box with handmade paper, it's not a very good photo, the paper is a peachy colour not white.

I glued some lace to the side of the lid and embossed the chipboard hearts with Frantage embossing enamel. I decorated the box with a book page, lace, chipboard hearts, a Gecko Galz image. flowers and stickles.

The rest of the design team have made some lovely inspirational pieces and they would love you to visit the challenge to take a look or join in with the challenge.

Have a lovely day. xxx Hazel.
