I enjoyed the luxury of being home all day today, the heat encouraged me to take respite indoors and indulge in a little crafting.
Please adjust your monitor screens now Tracey and Anne B if you are reading - green alert !!!!!! He he I have a couple of class members who seriously don't like the colour green.
I completed the title page to a new 12x12 album, this album will be for the Lake District photos we have from our recent camping trip, hopefully I will have lots more when we take another trip there soon.
I made most of the elements from scratch including this cute little picket fence, I made it out of lolly sticks - how fun was that - a true Blue Peter moment !
The little sign was a scrap of patterned paper, for those wondering the relevence, our tent is a "Bell" tent, I like using a play on words for my titles.
The background was created with Key Lime glimmer mist over a mask - the mask was very kindly gifted to me by a sales rep - bless him.
The butterfly is also handmade - more on that later in the week, I am planning a little tutorial for you all so will be sharing that later in the week.
I also finished this little canvas, it is a little smaller than A4 that my lovely friend Anita bought me it quite a while ago, it was a really fun project.
I used gesso to prepare the base, texture paste for the detailing at the bottom, book paper, a few little scraps of scrapbook paper left over from Saturdays class, the pink colour was a mix of Spun Sugar Distress Satin and a rose coloured wax rub.
The lettering is thickers, the bottom set I have daubed in fluffy stuff and glitter.
I also completed my swaps for the ATC group on our site, there are just a couple of days left to get your swaps in, if there are any peeps still sitting on theirs I would really love them in the shop for thursday, so that I can complete the swap over the weekend, thankyou xxx And remember, please don't share them on your blogs just yet, it will be nice for all the recipients to have a little surprise.
On an entirely different note - U2, Coldplay, Beyonce - wow, what an amazing trio of headliners this year, I am a rock chick really and Download is more my cuppa tea ( or warm beer lol) but I would have LOVED to have been at Glastonbury this year, they all played their hearts out.
Love and the joys of camping
