Well it seemed you all loved the backgrounds on yesterday's post. I f you fancy having a go yourself then book yourself onto this CLASS where you will complete a similar version
I decided to decorate the front cover today with Perfect Pearls, colourwash, bead trim and a copy of one of my Journal pages copied onto Sticky back canvas.
I also did a few brighter backgrounds with Adirondack Dabbers and Colourwash
Here they are waiting to be coloured with Perfect Pearls mixed as paint
And I finished this bunch of canvas "inner girls". We all have lots of "inner girls" inside us that surface at times of stress, doubt and sheer blind panic. And they need to be reassured with calm soothing words. So these are slightly padded tags ( to be extra tactile), with my inner girl on one side and a reassuring quote on the other. Done 12 so far and ideas for tons more, lol.
They are made from stiff,primed canvas and sprayed with Adirondack colourwash and Perfect Pearl Mists. Stamped with Dylusions and padded
Here's what my inner girl should be feeling
So why is it feeling like this instead...?
Think I will have to tuck this one into my hand luggage!!
Cool eh. This will also be a class in the next Workshop brochure.
The lovely Kinky Kate from my design team came round to pay her dues today and made a few samples for me. Gorgeous or what.?
I ran up a new collage at the last minute and have used the artwork for my new business card.
Every year I get a one of the most coveted item of clothing ever to own. Yes it's the Ranger Pinny. An extremely much wanted it. And every year I alter it a bit my way.!! lol This is how it is starting out this time.
A copy of the business card printed onto \sticky back canvas and then sewn onto the pinny.
