Woodware – Chosen by Pam – Inspired by Pinterest

This week over on the Woodware blog the theme has been chosen by Pam the Pampered Stamper it is great that Pam was able to be back with us this week as she continues to recover from her car smash.

I often use look for Pinsperation it is a wonderful way to spend an evening! The house canvas that I did a couple of weeks ago when we were doing master boards started with an image on Pinterest, but there they were fabric brooches, you will find them on my Buttons Board.

12

Here is where I found it Found on thepaintbrushgoesspottie.blogspot.com

I have made it much simpler

8

I am pleased with my version.

3

I have used four punches. The green daisy, square in the yellow and blue size. and a blue circle.

2

the circles I punched from Helsinki 1 all 25 of them, the edges of the circles I coloured on both sides with Mossy Mix’d Media inks by Clearsnap.

4

the blue square I punched from card to use as a template to fold the circle around.

5

to give me this shape.

7

for the centres i punched 25 white squares and ink the edges with the same colour.

6

The daisy punch I punched from card and inked with Crafters Canyon ink, my favourite colour, well this week.

1

I painted the canvas with some acrylic paint that I mixed from PPA Glue and Gold Finch Metallic F/x 

11

I hope that in this photograph you can see the shimmer on the canvas.

9

I used my Woodware Very Useful Ruler to line up the pieces on the canvas. I alternated the paper and added just buttons to some of the shapes and flowers and buttons to some.

10

I hope that you like my finished piece, thanks for visiting!

Woodware – On the Farm

On the Woodware blog this week we are on the farm

DD

So I am tramping about the Summer Weeds in some rather fetching Wellies.

DD1

First I stamped out Francoise’s Clear Magic Wellies on some cream card.

DD2

Then I used a mixture of 02 and 08 Micron pens to Zentangle©

DD3

I love to dangle my tangles and the boots are perfect for that.

DD4

I then stamped Jane’s Clear Magic Summer Weeds with a Spectrum Kaleidacolor ink pad. I inked the stamp and then stamped it several times until the ink run out to add depth to the stamping.

DD5

I used double sided tape to attach the wellies to the weed background and then stamped more of the weeds on top.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!

Woodware – Tone on Tone

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at tone on tone.

DD4

I have used two Dreamweaver stencils the Large Scales and the Steampunk Clock.

DD1

I used the Large Scales and covered a sheet of 12 x 12 with it and the ColorBox Crafte’rs ink in Sweet Pea. Then I added some Translucent Dreamweaver paste to a 6 x 6 section of the card, and let it dry.

DD

When it was dry I added Dreamweaver Crackle Paste in a rather messy way. This took quite a while to dry.

DD3

I added the Sweet Pea Crafter’s to the Crackle Paste. Then ripped the edges to make the image fit the card, then edged it with more ink.

DD2

I cut a border from the stencilled card.

DD4

I added some self adhesive lace ribbon to finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!

Woodware – Master Board – The Mirror Crack’d

Woodware are sponsoring The Mirror Crack’d this month so pop over to there blog for some inspiration and the join in on the Mirror Crack’d blog.

I am back again this week covering for Pam with another masterboard

b

this one is very plain, I have just used dye ink sprays and the Hexagonal Art Screen.

c

Then I messed about added some stamping with the quilting stamps, and some metal stencil used to pattern the Magic stamp.

o

Then I chopped it up into pieces to make some houses.

n

I added buttons and some self adhesive tape measure ribbon.

m

Here you can see the Crackle Rollagraph background stamp.

l

This one has some burlap ribbon.

k

this one has self adhesive lace.

i

the words come from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear set Family Home.

h

this time cream burlap.

g

and this one just has lots thrown on!

d

For the background I used a 6 x 24 inch canvas, ripped some paper as a mask

e

and sprayed with 2 shades of green

f

then used an ink pad for the blue sky.

j

I rubbed a Woodware wipe over the canvas to blend it in, then I painted over the top with metallic f/x made into a water colour paint with gum arabic, to as some shimmer to the sky.

a

It looks very nice on my wall!

Woodware – Master Board – The Mirror Crack’d

Woodware are sponsoring The Mirror Crack’d this month so pop over to there blog for some inspiration and the join in on the Mirror Crack’d blog.

Master board seems a very grand name for cutting up what you make, but it is fun.

17

This is what I have done with mine. The box is the largest one of a set of three wooden boxes that are available from Woodware.

For my master board I started with a sheet of white 12 x 12 card.

3

and sprayed it with Banana Clearsnap Dye Ink Spray through the Mandala Art Screen.

4

Just roughly

5

Then I added some Strawberry and Spearmint sprays I also used the Swirldot Art Screen.

7

Then I moved back inside and added some stamping in Bark Crafters ink. This is the Stampendous Carte Postal.

8

I have also stamped the Calligraphy Sampler in red ink

10

Then I got out the Dreamweaver Embossing paste and made a very messy job of pasting (deliberately I might add)

11

I repeated this across the card.

12

I should have started in the middle, but it didn’t matter as I am cutting up the board anyway!

13

Then I used the Rust Spoonful kit to heat emboss the paste. I just added it roughly.

14

Then I used the circles from the Kaffee Klatsch set. I have embossed it with the Seasoning Embossing enamel.

15

Then I chopped up the card I have edged them with Bark ink. I didn’t measure the length I just measured the height of  the box and cut 7cm sqaures.

15b

The box has been painted with the Dylusions paints that we are still waiting to arrive.

15a

The paints go on really well.

18

I have only decorated the two long sides.

16

I attached the panels with Woodware Crafty Glue.

The burning question is do I decorate the other two boxes with the rest of the master board

20

Or do I do something completely different?
