it's been a while

Well it's been over a year since i last posted and if anyone still looks at my blog i apologise!
Time seems to get away with me but i have been up to a few thing and have some photos to share.
i have changed the name of my blog from cupcake cards as i don't seem to do them as much, but i have been making boxes and such like.

here are a few projects to show you:

The bookends were a project at my last work shop we started off with a small pile of wood and this is what we ended up with! each piece of wood is covered with a different type of patterned paper, then sanded and distressed,

in the first photo i have also covered the the bookends them self in pages from an old dictionary.

hope you like what I've done i will be back soon with some more projects.

Crafty Canvas

Evening All

ok so i can here it now 2 days on the trot!!! but this is just another project we made at my last work shop.

This is a canvas of my youngest son George.

The canvas is painted with the eco paints and i have stamped directly on the canvas!!

you have to be careful because the canvas in not sold some of the image will not always print but with the wording that the affect i was going for then i just wipped my perfect medium around the edge and embossed with gold embossing powder.

i have made the heart from air drying clay ans stamped it with the word and a swirl stamp when it is still wet to give it texture.

the flower is made from old dictionary pages various different sizes screwed up and spirits with mica powders to give them a iridescence.

i found a poem about a boy that fitted George perfectly and filled a small glass bottle with beads to add another element.

hope you like it
