Hi Crafty Bloggers
Had some holidays from work so had some crafty fun !!!
Here are my ATC's for Maremis Creative Cafe on facebook . They really do challenge myself and not always a fantasic result but I thourghly enjoy trying different textures and mediums and learning so much !! There is so much inspiration on there and so many wonderful people it really is a wonderful place to be <3
J for Journey - I have used Lindy's magicals on this one with a chippie some bling and charms ...stamp and word sticker . The texture underneath is a dried out t-bag cover !!
K-Kaleisescope - struggled with this one but have early memories of playing as a child and it was all about colour for me . I used eggshells for this texture and handmade sprays with distress inks a chippie and a die cut and word sticker . Enjoyed cutting the die from coloured watercolor paper.
L- Lace - I used lace on the card and then painted with acrylic paints and added some gesso on top to finish . I added some wire and punched out some butterflies from the remaining card and added a gorgeous bling center.
I have also tried a canvas with a photograph my first try I like the composition but messed up the hair a wee bit but loved trying it out !! I used lots of Dusty Attic chippies & resins from The Trinket Parlour . I was so inspired to try it out after watching Maremi Small Art on Youtube . I love trying out every video and especially when one is posted on a day off lol !! hate it when at work and all I want to do is go home and craft lol ;0)
I also am learning to use watercolours and found some awesome tutorials on youtube from Jay Lee
I have used a mask from The Trinket Parlour then used the trchniques in the video for the splatters of colour was so much fun !!
Lastly another gorgeous tutorial from Maremi and I did this similar to the video as wanted to achieve some confidence with the mediums which were magicals . I have made the flowers cutting out using a die and some chippies and crochet thread . I decided to mount the tags onto a flat canvas and then made the background using stencils and dry brushing with distress inks and some word stickers . Just adore how it turned out <3
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope to keep learning and discovering new techniques in April . The videos I have followed are on my facebook page or go to the links in the post if you want to try them out too .
