12 Coasters January

I am so excited the year long journey is nearly at an end and my project using all 12 of my coasters is almost complete. Can not wait to share it all with you

in the meantime here is my January coaster.

I used two of my Christmas Presents (salty ocean distress stain and one of the sets of Tim Holtz stamps I got)

I also used Squeezed lemonade, festive berries and ripe persimmon distress stains for my sunset and stamping the radiant sun lines.

I will be doing up a tutorial for how to create the ocean using the distress stain, multi medium, triple thick and tissue paper its such a simple and effective way to create realistic water.

Add in a couple of fussy cut butterflies from the stamps I got for my birthday, a little tissue tape and some seasonal chit chat stickers covered in Warm Honey distress stain and of course a wee bit of bling and a little perfect pearls in gold and pearl (also from my Chrissy pressies)

and here it is the Last Coaster of 2012, I already have an idea of what I may do for 2013 but that is a post for a later day 😉

So here it is the final coaster for 2012:(bear in mind I am in the land down under and it is summer here)

12 Coasters December

Wow this year has flown by. Just one more coaster for me to catch up on and I will be done. Though you will have to wait a bit for the big reveal I am really excited at how it is all coming together.

I have been having some issues with my cb. So have to say I was super happy to find some pre cut mirror stickers which I used on this tag at a local cheapie shop, add in festive Berries and Evergreen Bough distress inks, some rock candy stickles, tissue tape, trim roses, Smooch spritz in golden glow, an angel die cut, some silver tinsel trim, and a festive chit chat sticker and viola you have my December coaster

Febuary Coaster Do Over

Firstly for anyone waiting for the box-a-lope draw so sorry still trying to figure out how to capture the random.org number box so I can show who won. Will get back to figuring that out soon.

I was never quite happy with my original Feb coaster. It just did not gel well with the others and seemed at bit for lack of a better word childish.

It has taken me all year to figure out how I wanted it to look. I took two of my original elements The flower and the heart. Did a paint background with my paint dabbers in various pinks. Inked a tag with Picked Raspberry Distress stain and then went over it with white paint dabber to give a pretty effect. Used some chit chat stickers and Trim (inked in festive berries), and added a little brushed pewter stickles on the trim. I love how understated this is and that it totally fits better with my other coasters.

 

So here is the New Febuary Coaster

and here is the original version just in case you missed it:

I think you will agree the new take is a bit less busy and a little more elegant.

Happy crafting
