SPA - Perfume

Good morning everyone, I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. Today I’m happy to be this weeks host for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, the theme I’ve chosen is Perfume.

I covered my card with rice paper and then I collaged some images from magazines and Gecko Galz. I gave the card a coat of matte medium and added some colour with my pitt pens, I found the quote on the internet.

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

SPA - Africa

Hi everyone. Africa is this weeks theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.

I coloured the card with terracotta brusho and painted the sun with yellow acrylic paint, I splattered the card with gold Kuretake watercolour paint.The zebra was stamped onto the card and I also stamped it onto white card, I cut the face out and adhered it to the card. I stamped the two silhouettes with black Archival ink. The large figure was stamped onto white card, coloured with felt tips, cut out and adhered it to the card. I doodled round the edge.

Stampendous - zebra.
Clarity stamps - figures.

Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely day. xxx

Altered Wooden Clock

Good morning everyone, it’s March 1st already and time for the latest  Altered Eclectics challenge, as always the theme is anything goes as long as it’s altered art/mixed media, paper crafts aren’t allowed.
I've altered a wooden clock for my DT project.

I found this wooden clock in a local charity shop.

I gave the clock a coat of gesso then a coat of Decoart paynes grey acrylic paint, I then gave it a coat of Weathered Wood crackle medium and a coat of Decoart spa blue acrylic paint, I waited for the cracks to appear, I wasn't happy with the crackle, I must have put the crackle medium on too thick as the cracks are quite wide.

I covered the clock with a napkin that has blue roses on it.

I sprayed some cofffee shop Glimmer mist at the bottom of the clock and added some washi tape.

To decorate the clock I used my finger to spread some Imagination Craft moonlight black wax over some silver metal flowers and a paper flower that had been sprayed with moonlight Glimmer Mist. I also used my finger to spread a little treasure pewter on the edges of the clock.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look, have a lovely day. xxx
