boy tags

The news I promised to share with you that has me very excited is the news that I am now on the team of designers at  Altered Pages.  I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity with such a fabtastic crafting company. Also it will be such a great focus for me and such incredible products to work withi

I decided to use some of the gorgeous images from the digital download section at Altered Pages. I used the cutest ever boys collage sheet ' 3116 Young man'.  I chose two really gorgeous images and they printed out beautifully.

Other products:vintage book text paper
distress inks
blue markersatin ribbon from my stash
Small acrylic 
stamps from my stash
3d butterfly sticker

I created the tags, cute fish and netting background texture on my die cutting machine (Scan and cut ) using a good quality card.

After cutting the tag shapes I coloured them in distress inks using a sponge blender and then blended well I also added waves with a blue alcohol marker to the top tag. I coloured the fish shape the same way.  

The second tag background was made using text paper mod podged  onto the tag and then when dried I distressed in the same way.

The images I fussy cut out as I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to cutting out images. I also cut out the stamped images and glued to the tags. I finished off with the twisted twine and pale ribbon from my stash.

Looking forward

Good morning my friends. Today i am looking forward. I have had a not so good winter and i am so longing for the spring. Time for brighter days and new beginnings.

 I have something so cool and wonderful in the pipeline but i am keeping it a secret for now but all will be revealed when i can reveal it.

 I have recently got my free craft classes for the elderly etc back running every thursday afternoon and its a lovely time for a chat with the ladies and crafts and tea. Also i have been busy creating Dezinaworld kits and freebies which can be viewed on my other blog and facebook group.

I have been making cards and altering coasters and am looking forward to a very creative year. These coasters are altered old coasters from 1980's. They are covered in wallpaper (from a book of samples ) and then stamped and embossed and sealed. My grandson wanted them so he and his dad now have them at their home. 

Thanks for reading. June x

M.I.A back to blog

Hi everyone, I have not been around a lot online as i have been busy with wedding preparations for my son's wedding on Nov 12th. I have been doing a little crafting when i could though and have been creating Christmas cards. I finally got around to taking pictures of the cards and so came for a catch up in blogland. 

I hope everyone is doing well. I am sorry i have been a bit lapse in my blogging but i will catch up properly after the wedding. At the moment i just can not relax. 
Here are the makes i have done for Christmas. They are each completely different with different techniques used. As always my crafting is chaos lol.

Back in action

 Its been a difficult time recently with a nasty flu type bug descending on our household and also with a fight for care rights for my mam with Alzheimers. Me and my sister are determined to get that one sorted out. 
Yesterday though, i was feeling well enough to create these little Halloween witch ATC's. 

  • collaged the background with various scraps. 
  • Added inks 
  • Sprayed with ink dots
  • Created crackle over the collaged backgrounds using acrylic paints and crackle glaze.
  • Stamped a little girl by Santoro stamps
  • Coloured her with Marco refine pencils and fine liners. Then fussy cut her and edged with black to hide the white edges. 
  • Hand drew the little witch hats onto patterned paper and cut out.
  • put together ATC and finished off with pens etc.
