Three days = Three Plays


I was on my own for most of thelong bank holiday in the UK.  So that could only mean CRAFT TIME..............

So first up............

I really like the crackle pain look of this little piece of art

A little old gift tag

Take three Ranger designers products and see what happens

I covered a Wendy Vechhi Art Part square with Studio 490 Embossing paste. Sprayed it to death with Dyan's inks and then stamped into the paste.  I just love stamping into paste the effect is just mega.  Once dried I used Tim's Distress Crackle paint to paint the outside frame, Distress paint to edge the frame, covered the sides and back with Tissue tape and finally stamped a birthday banner.  Attached a few flowers, idealogy numbers and it was finished -  a little Birthday Plaque.

Next up

Loving the black and white look

Little bunch of  cuteness

Splatter look, think it is here to stay

I really enjoyed the last canvas I made for a colleagues daughters birthday and another colleague wanted something similar for her niece.  I only had a smaller canvas at home, so I had to scale it down somewhat.  But again very happy with the result.  I have decided to use the splatter sides again as I love how it turns out. 

And finally

Layers and layers

A little Grunge Paste anyone?

Splatter going on

I tried to use a Hels technique on another canvass, but it went very horribly wrong.  So I covered the canvass with cream paint, bringing it back to a plain canvass and set about it with my fav paints of all time Distress..............

Unfortunately you cannot see all the layers as I only had Gloss glue and seal  left to cover the canvass and it give quite a shine.  I LOVE this so much it has such depth and layers it is just mega lush.

So all in all a fab crafting few days off.

Thanks for stopping by Tuck Towers, Until the next time.
