Craft Consortium Hackney & Co Wildflower Meadow Mixed Media Tag

Hi all

I have another tag to share using the new Wildflower Meadow  collection by Hackney & Co

Spray a blank white tag with green and yellow inks and let the first layer dry. Then spray over pink and leave to dry.  Add a few texture stamps and a stencil to the background.

Add a strip of patterned paper and a piece of embossed card to the tag. Dye some cheesecloth with pink ink and once dry glue to tag. Spray  tag again with ink. 

Stamp out the flower and tiny toadstools onto card and colour with ink and then cut each piece out before gluing them down.

Finish off with a few sequins.

New Stamp Release Artful Days Mixed Media Tag

Hi all

I have a tag to share using the new stamps by Artful Days

I used Lindsey's Magicals on the base and i painted them on by mixing a little water into the powders. I then used the texture stamps on the background of the tag

I use a stencil to apply modeling paste to the tag and then i used copper embossing powder over the top. 

I used a mixture of marker and paint pens to colour in the head. I then used nail glitter for the eye make up.

Finish off with a sentiment

The Blank Page Muse Altered Coffee Tin

Hello All

Do you have a pen collecting problem but also really love coffee?
Well i have a solution for you.
Turn that coffee tin into storage for your huge pen collection!!
So crack out that coffee tin because now you have an excuse to empty it.

Yellow decoupage papers
Washi tape
black card
white pen
embossing powder

Start off by coating the tine with two to three layers of white paint or until the print underneath is mostly covered.

Next mix PVA glue with water and paint onto the tin before adding the decoupage paper. Paint the glue both on the tin and over the paper to keep it all smooth.

Once dry take some wide washi tape and glue it along the centre of the tin.

Take a piece of plain card and stamp out enough flowers  to cover the top and bottom of the tin.

I used watercoliour paints to colour them  in

From the front label, Cut a small piece of black cardstock. Use the flower stamp from the Art Journal Mixed  Media Stamp Set and use clear ink to stamp them onto the edges of the card. Use The Seth Apter Ancient Amber Embossing Powder over the to and apply heat to set. Use a white pen to add the a description to the front.

Glue the flower boarder around the top and bottom of the tin and add lace as well.

A few close ups of the finished project

Ephemoire True Crime Themed Artist Trading Block

Hi all 

I am back with an artist trading block to share today.
I apologize for the video as i was recovering from the dreaded lurgy at the time of filming.

Here is the video

I painted the block with black gesso and then added paper to the background. I used the Bonafide paper set and cut them to size using a square nesting die. 
I forgot to mention that on the video.

I then applied a stencil mask and once the modeling paste had set, i sprayed it with red mist spray.

To get the pictures to fit, I cut out the people and glued them on.

This was a cheap plastic halloween garland with skeletons on. I cut them up and glued their bones to the block.

The blood drips are made using a red hot glue stick and a die cut as a mould. 

The feet are some beads shaped like poison cans.
