Tesla Inspired Wall Art

another prima wooden box

This was created for a friend’s Husband.

I absolutely love the wooden boxes Prima put some of their accessories in now they are fantastic to recycled into these little art pieces.

I covered this one in Tissue tape, then Matt Multi Medium followed by some Alcohol ink. I think you will agree it comes up a treat.

Then it was a matter of playing around and choosing bits to see what would go where and then sticking it all down.

Of course most of this is Idea – ology with a few watch parts and other random bits thrown in,

I really love how these turn out just wish I had more of the little wooden trays.

Game of Thrones Themed Gift

got set

For any Nerdy Crafter’s out there you know how hard finding Nerdy Craft stuff can be, sure Viva Las Vegas Has a Dr Who sheet of Rubber, and superman and wonder woman stamps

Paper smooches and a few of the stamp/die companies have a few dies

and spoonflower is a god send for fabric but it would be nice to see a wider range of nerdy stuff (and not with the price astronomically bumped up)

anyway

This Ornament and stocking are made from Spoonflower fabric and the Card features a Sweet Pea Stamp.

I am really happy with how this Set turned out, in part due to the colouring of the stamp to Look Like Sansa Stark (and yes I am aware she does not have a scar along one eye)

So I am going to be playing a lot of catch up before the new year begins sorry for the blog spam if you get the emails :)

Hugs and Merry Christmas

My goodness time flies

As always Tim Holtz had some great ideas and techniques for this months tag.

I am a huge fan of recycling or upcycling in my crafts so always love using boxes and their corrugated cardboard for projects

I could not find my stamping film so used some Mona Lisa variagated Gold Leaf instead

I love this tag. In case you do not know this already I really love butterflies they are a huge symbol in my life .

When I saw the tag I thought it would be so great to play with In fact I ended up with a few extra backgrounds just from what I had on my craft mat.

november tag

I was aiming for a sort of sunset sky look to my background, I really need to get one of the brighter orange distress paints for my collection.

I am so happy with how this turned out and have to say totally loving the Distress Stain Sprays just so totally awesome :)

As always a The amazing Tim Holtz Tag

oct tag

I had so many ideas for this when I started and they all sort of flooded out of my mind when it came time to put the tag together.

So you get a scaled down more simple version. Using Mostly Tim Holtz and Ranger products with a little Fairy Dust glitter sprinkled in for good measure (actually I decided the tag lacked sparkle)

I was so excited when I saw this Months tag Tim Holtz is really bringing some colour and fun into the tag this month with what is a huge symbol in my life Butterflies. And better yet I actually had all the right product to do my own take on this months tag.

I am super happy with how it turned out, the only thing being that the pic does not show up the Alcohol Ink background technique,

When I saw the original tag I knew I had to have a play, making fluttering butterflies has been a staple of my crafting since I first began my tentative steps into the wonderful world of papercrafting. In fact I was heartbroken last year when my favorite butterfly punch (I own very few punches as I really do not use them much but this one I used a lot) died it was only $2 and I got a good 8 years out of it so not to bad at all anyway The New Butterfly frenzy die makes me very happy as it is much easier to use than a punch and gives loads of shapes and sizes.

So here is my Tag, I decided I wanted to use my New French Flight Framelits and Stamp Set and so below is my take on this Months tag :)

It is that time of the Month again :) Time to Share my Take on Tim’s Tag.

 

Have to say I really loved working with the Ranger Texture Paste, I have used impasto, modelling paste, gel medium and even Embossing paste all have their good and bad points but I have to say the Ranger Texture Paste is so quick and simple and easy to remove mostly cause it does not coat onto the outside of your stencils the way others do.

 

Anyway I did leave out one element and that was further stamping my tag which by the time I realised it was just far to late so I left well enough alone.
