Our Creative Corner -- Sew and sew.

For the challenge on Our Creative Corner the subject is sewing. I have made another page for my sewing book. I started out with some corrugated card and distressed some of the edges. Fresco paint went on next with some bronze embossing powder. I stuck on some sewing related images. I then used the sewing machine to sew on a zip. Next I added a dress form that I coloured and embossed. I dressed the form in some gold fabric. A home made button, tiny scissors, a bobbin, a tape measure, lace and a wooden sewing machine were added to finish it off.

The Craft Barn Dictionary challenge -- F

This time the letter for the dictionary challenge on The Craft Barn is F.
I have used Feathers for mine. The background is crumpled tissue from 7 Gypsies with bird images on. Not that you can see much of it because I painted gesso on most of it and just left a feather in the centre. I then distress inked the tissue. The next step was to use a feather stencil with some texture paste. I stamped the heart and embossed it and finished off with some stamped feathers and some real ones.

Tag Tuesday -- Get Inky

This week we have to get inky so I have made three different tags.
The first one I used spray inks on an embossed tag. The small one on the top left is alcohol inks on acetate. The others are spray ink. The splatter marks at the bottom are made with an ink dabber.

 The one below on the left is ink sprayed through stencils. The one on the right is distress inks on a tag with texture paste through a stencil. The paste resists the ink.

Anything but cute -- Grungy Love

For the challenge on Anything but Cute, I have made a cover for the book that fits in the altered heart box ( post below this one) I started off by covering the right side with gold crackle paste. and the rest with gesso to seal the chipboard. I then added the various embellishments and painted them with gesso. When it was all dry I painted it with pink, purple and turquoise metallic paint. The pink roses were added afterwards.

I am also entering this in  new challenge blogs that I came across.

Try it on Tuesday -- A fine romance The Artistic Stamper -- HeArt art

For this challenge on Try it on Tuesday, and The Artistic Stamper, I have made some pages for a book in the heart box that I altered earlier.

The pages are a mixture of Dylusion spray inks, distress inks, with stamped images. Some have die cut hearts and others have stamped images on hearts,

Every inchie Monday -- Slippers

This week I decided to colour Arthur's life up by making him a pair of blue felt slippers and a pair of Minion ones. I made the felt and cut out the soles and sewed on the top piece and added some beads. The Minion slippers are drawn on stampbord and coloured with distress pens.

Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge & SanDee & Amelies Steampunk challenge -- Anything goes.

This is my entry for Rhedds Creative spirit challenge for February. I altered an old large book of my Dad's to use as an art journal. In this, I just write down what I have done art wise. For the cover, I used a piece of card from some packaging and some corrugated card for the top piece. I sprayed the main cover with Glimmer Mist & Dylusions ink sprays, and for the top piece I used Gesso and PaperArtsy Fresco paint. The images are a mixture of shrink plastic using PaperArtsy and Tim's stamps, Tim's cogs and die cuts, and various other steampunk bits.

I am entering this in the following challenges.
