Altered Photo Box

Hello Peeps

Wow the last two weeks have been totally manic I had to go to Manchester to work for a few days followed by the Heartfelt Retreat in Warwick back for a day and off to Euro Disney for a few days with my 3 year old grandson (where it rained continually) back from there totally knackered  and straight out to see Miss Saigon with a real good friend Jan.

Here's a photo of my gorgeous little munchkin Mason at Disneyland.


I made this box for Jan for her travel photos. Inspired by Penny's use of metal embellishments and paints I made this without a piece of designer paper or copic in sight.



I stuck a whole mixture of things on the box which I then covered in gesso, added Paperartsy Grunge paste and crackle paste using various stamps and masks.
 I then painted it with Very Berry, Rose, Smoked Paprika, Blood Orange and Claret Fresco Acrylic paints by Paperartsy. I then used black gold and white acrylic paints which I dry brushed over the top. Added Treasure gold in areas.


Some close ups of the details.

 I then sprayed red glimmer mist over the whole thing, followed by a pearl and gold mist.

 The insert is a postcard embossing folder I think maybe spellbinders but not too sure.
 The bird and elephant I picked up at Camden Market along with other metalic bits.
 The cogs and corner embellishments are from Make It Crafty
 The faces I made with air dry clay.
 Letters are Tim Holtz die cuts with gold Treasure Gold 
 and a quick look at the back

 is the theme chosen by my talented teamie Shirley 
for this weeks challenge at 

inspired i'm sure by this weeks sponsor
Bugaboo Stamps
I got to play with a Bugaboo image from the Gus series

sorry about the photo not very good but with the trouble I was having tonight Im just grateful I managed to get the card done at all.

Talk about ditzy I was totally stoopid tonight and thought I had broken
my ebossser completely when I 
picked my magnetic sheet up along with my sandwich and put it through the machine at the bottom
it got caught completely and started to go through to the mechanisms.
luckily hubby came to my rescue and managed to take the machine apart to get it all out and its working once more yay.

Photo inspiration at Fab N Funky


Hi 

The challenge this week at Fab n Funky is a photo inspiration


The colours are one of my favourite colours schemes, and was just perfect for the image that I chose from our amazing sponsor this week who is




and here is what I did


She is called Dragon Rider and I just loved colouring her.

I made her quite big cos there is soo much detail on her so kept the card really simple.
I coloured the image with copics I would list the colours but would you believe I ended up using over 25 different colours lol.
Im not always happy with my colouring but am quite pleased with how this turned out and just know I will be colouring this one again.

Spring Cleaning Anyone?


Been playing with my Brother CutnScan sooo loving that machine!!!

Have used the cutter to make my mats for this card the butterflies were Dies.

succumb to the urge to spring clean this weekend lol.
