Hello all
I have a card to share using the new Essential Craft Pads by Craft Consortium. 

The Essential Craft Papers Metal Effects 

  1. Use a 5x7 Kraft card as the base.
  2. Cut the base paper down to 5x7 and then cut off 10mm around each side roughly.
  3. Glue this onto card and you should have a Kraft card boarder.
  4. Next tear up a few strips of the metal textures and then cut out the ephemera from the Vintage Emporium pad.
  5. Layer these up and use 3D foam pads to make them stand out from the page.
  6. Cut some cogs out using card and the scraps of paper. 
  7. Decorate the card cogs with texture sand paste and then add rust coloured paint.
  8. Slot the cogs and ephemera amongst the layers and use 3d foam pad to build up dimension.

I am up on the Emerald Creek Crafts blog this month with an altered frame. Check out how i made this bellow.

Products used
DecoArt Black Gesso
DecoArt Metallics Festive Red

Take a cheap plastic frame, mine is from Poundland which is like Dollar store.
Cover whole frame in a few coats of black gesso.

Once the gesso has fully dried, paint on red metallic paint.

i created the roses by pressing paper clay into a silicone mold and then backing them until they set.
I then painted them in burgundy and brown acrylic paint. Before the paint dried i sprinkled on the embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun.

Bleeding Art Challenge Rusty Picture Frame

Hello all

It is time for a new challenge over at Bleeding Art and this month the theme is Anything Goes.
I altered a picture frame which must of been lying around the house sor 4 years lol. I am determined to use up all this stuff.

I used DecoArt Texture Sand Paste, Quinacridone Gold Acrylic, Black gesso and Americana Decor Metallics Bronze.

First paint the whole frame in black gesso as this will stop the paint coming unstuck.
Once that has fully dried,Paint over a coat of bronze paint. It doesn't matter if a bit of the black gesso is showing as this adds to the grungy look. Finally take the texture sand paste and add it to the details on the frame. Paint the textured bits with quincodone gold paint.

Gecko Galz Steampunk Artist Trading Block

Hello all
This week i have a Artist Trading Block to share using digital papers and collage sheets from Gecko Galz.

Products used
DecoArt Texture Sand Paste
DecoArt Quincodone Gold Premium Acrylic Paint
ATB 3 inch and 5 inch Fernli Designs

I started off by using a square cutting die to cut out the paper pack to fit the ATB.
Next i added texture sand paste around the edges of the block and once set, i painted it with Quinacridone Gold Acrylic Paint.

I repeated the previous steps with the wings and clock parts too.
I then cut out the clocks and glued them on.
 Then added the rusted embellishments.

I reused a cotton bobbin that i had lying around from an old project. Ijust painted the top and base before adding the doll to the top. I added a large blob of texture sand paste and then pressed a piece of MDF in so i could prop the doll up.
