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

It's Been a While

Well what can i say it's been a while and when you have every intention to update regularly 10 months just don't cut it!!! all i can say is i will try better!! so what have i been up to in 10 months?

were do i start!! i have been busy with work, kids and family in general my dad has been really poorly but he is on the mend now!! have been on a diet and although it seem silly but it takes up loads of my time i have lost 5 stone and half a pound and still going!!

But back to the crafting i am still running my monthly craft group so i have some photos of the last project we made. in my last post i said that i had a bit of a obsession with MDF but its still going strong!!! i had loads cut in 6x6 pieces for a workshop but it never happened so what do you do with 100 plus bits of MDF!! so with a little bit o gigery pokeary this is what i came up with!!!!

OK so above is my sample i made no wood work skills needed just some pva glue and our box was ready to decorate!!

i have use the mini swirls and the vintage heart stamp sets!! and a few i had in my kit, i have also used some of the eco paints stormy and mushroom all available from Parti Craft.

the feet are just a bracelet from primark taken apart and secured to the bottom of the box.

so once i made this one i was hooked and had a few orders so here is the next one!!

hope you like the boxes!! i know i enjoyed making them, well i better get going have some samples to make for Ally Pally!! thanks for stopping by

keep crafting lol Lynsay xxx
