Greeting from Sunny Tenerife (I hope) It's my birthday today, and I quite like this new tradition we've started of celebrating it on holiday. Here's my second piece for the CVC Sparkle and Shine challenge.
Again Christmas has been barred, but after my birthday it's open season, so I'll be in full Christmas mode when I get home lol.
I know it looks like my matting and layering is a bit off here, but I'm making myself a journal, and this will go in when I've got a few more pages done. I do have a few journals, but I always mess up on page 2 or 3 and then it puts me off lol.
So from the top...
I always forget what I've used so I've put it in the photograph :-)
I've brayered on
Next came a bit of stamping, I've used Ellen's stamps from EEV08 stamped in Snowflake, the text is from Sara Naumann's ESN111 stamped in Wendy Vecchi's Orange Blossom, and Sara's scratches are stamped in Tango fresco.
I went a bit high tec and also used some bubble wrap with my new favourite Hint of Mint from Lin's Autumn limited edition paints.
Take your eyes of that dirty craft mat lol. The stenciling at the top is one of Lin's stencils and Guacomole paint, and the stamping at the bottome is the border from JOFY 24
Now time for the sparkle and shine.
Nothing says shine like glass paint on acetate! I've used the flowers and sentiment from JOFY 14 The only way to stick the flowers down without the glue showing through was to stitch them. This gives them loads more movement than if they were just stuck. I love my new sewing machine, it can go in a straight line without any help from me, which is great because I can't do straight!
There's still loads of time to join in with our challenge over at Country View Crafts, the winner will receive a £20.00 gift certificate, and be offered a design team spot for an upcoming challenge.
Hope you like mine, and thanks very much for looking x
