Decorated Bottle

At the last Mixed media Class I made two examples for everyone to choose from and all of them chose this one
This is a water bottle from Poundland and once decorated can be used on the table for water or indeed any drink.
Here are a few pictures of the other sides
Because I wanted to show everyone how the kit contents would look after the process I used one side of the bottle to add at least one of every element from the kit so that it could be used as a guide. This next picture shows this
Everyone had a fantastic time and the resulting bottle looked amazing. Here is a bit of the detail



As part of the kit I gave everyone a small glass bud vase to complete at home. Here is mine finished at home.


I have added some more detail to the second example so I will show that another day. Don't forget, if you would like to come along to a Mixed Media class follow the Ladiesthatcraft Facebook Page, sign up to receive notifications from this page or look down the right of this blog page as 2018 classes are added regularly. Beginner or experienced, it doesn't matter. You will have a great time and learn so much. xx

Three Hearts Wall Hanging

So easy to make with these beautiful MDF words. This is mainly because they are slightly thicker than the ones I normally buy and I was made up when Lynette Jasper sent them to me to use.
Here are a few detail pictures 

If you watched Hochanda today you would have seen them hanging from the window behind the set. Love the detail in these. xx

Sparkle

Really loved making this canvas for Pretty Gets Gritty DT. I've been dying to use the reverse of a canvas and this worked so well.
The new kits are being demonstrated by the lovely Lynette Jasper on Hochanda on Sunday 19th November so don't forget to tune in.
I tried for ages to photograph the canvas to capture the BLING and sparkle created by the glitter but to no avail. Lets just say its a dazzler. xxx

Pretty Gets Gritty

Last month I was lucky enough to join the Pretty Gets Gritty Design Team working with Lynette Jasper and a fantastically creative Design Team.

The kit I received was amazing and I had great fun using it. Lynette went live on Hochanda on 7th and 8th October with three different kits and they were a great success.

Here are the three projects I made for the show.
All were mixed media with varying degrees of grungyness. The first piece and the easiest to do was the simple black and cream frame
The black background was made using the black gems and pinheads in the Ebony kit along with papers and flowers which were to die for.

The second was a mixed media round canvas using an assortment of flowers from several kits. The larger red flowers are actually the peony taken apart and turned upside down to give a more open look and the background was made using one of the stencils on the show.
The last piece was a another board canvas again using the stencils as a background and softer colours.
As with most of my mixed media pieces I like to use a photograph of other image. I just cant get away from the scrapbooker in me lol. 

If you want to see the shows and see what was in the kits follow this link to Hochanda

Looking forward to receiving my next kit. xx
