About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 72 - Flowers

Evening!! Not been feeling on top form today, so good job I have the other photo(s) from yesterday to share with you! I have been working on the canvas again - the one I started thinking about on Day 50 after playing around with Sheena's faux leather technique.

I was left with some pieces of the various faux leathers, and added to it by covering Sheena White Stamping card with the Pebeo paint I used on the canvas on Day 64 - Pearl Silk, Sun Pearl, Copper Pearl and Chocolate Pearl. 
I then die cut leaves and flowers using A Rosy Outlook from Sheena's A Country Cottage Perfect Partners. 
The matching stamp was used with VersaFine Vintage Sepia and Toffee.
I then used my own version of making the flowers - using one full, one four petal, and 2 two petals.
I then assembled the flowers with Collall 3D Glue Gel. The centres are Craftwork Cards Fondant Card candi - inked with Versafine. I'm rather pleased with these - all ready for adding to the canvas.
One more step tomorrow before I can assemble the finished canvas.
