The Glittery Hands Box Tea and Cake Cookie Bunting

Hello all
I have a easy tutorial for you to follow on how to make a cookie themed bunting using the May box from The Glittery Hands Box.

Start off by rolling out some paper clay and then use the heart cutter to cut out the cookies.

Use a needle to add some holies and to create a scalloped edge. Poke a hole in the top to add the string.

Paint the cookies with acrylic paint. I went for a traditional cookie colour but you can choose anything.

Use a hot glue gun to add the icing. The glue will take a few minutes to set depending on how thick the icing is. Paint these your desired colour and leave to dry.

I cut the letters out of craft foam using an alphabet die and glued them on.

Paint heavy gel medium onto each cookie and sprinkle micro beads over them. 

Once they are dry, tie some twine though the top and thread them onto the ribbon. Use mini pegs to hold them in place.

Hello all

I am back with Prompt 2 of the stencified journal challenge. I was waiting for my page to be worn by the weather.

I used The Musical Notes Mandala Stencil 

Before being left outside 

I had to wait for it to rain a bit as we have had a dry summer so far.

As you can see the rain has took a lot of the colour out and left this subtle wash of colour in the center.

Thank you for visiting and i will have prompt 3 up later this week.

The Glittery Hands May Tea And Cake Box Altered Frame

Hi all

I am back with my first project for The Glittery Hands Box design team. I have a reveal video as well so you can see what is in this months box. My first project was inspired a little by Alice in Wonderland.

Start off by coating the frame in gesso and then using crackle paste with a stencil over the top.

Once the first layer has dried off, Glue bits of lace and material to the frame and paint with gesso.

Paint the frame with different coloured acrylic paints.

Rub gesso over the top to tone down the colours a bit. Then spray red ink over the hears and glue to the frame.

Glue mini cards to the edges of the frame.
Dye a few white fabric flowers with ink and once dry, glue to the corners of the frame.

Paint the teapot shape white and use a small background stamp over the top.

Paint a mdf fork with rust paste and then dry brush with metallic paint,
Print out the image at 6 x 4 and colour in before placing inside the frame.

Thank you for visiting.

Cherish The Memory Inspire Seaside Themed Altered Letters


I have a new make to share using the Summer Feelings paper pads available at Cherish The Memory.

I started off by painting each letter with white paint as an under coat and once that had dries i then painted over the top with DecoArt Premium Acrylic Turquoise. Then i applied DecoArt Texture Sand Paste and let it set.

I painted on Quinacidone Gold Fluid acrylic to get the rust. I wasn't sure to go steampunk on these or not so i met in the middle and went for a water worn look.

Next dye some cheese cloth. 
I used blue and light green to get this colour, This stuff is great as it gets disstressed when you heat dry it so you get this worn net look.

I used heavy gel medium to paste down the cloth and then i started decorationg the letters using the die cuts from the Summer Feeling Die Cut pad.

I also added gems and beads to the letters.

I used fake moss to create this underwater look. I was thinking about the things you find in the rockpools  after the tide has gone in.
