Love the simple things



The weather outside doesn’t exactly look like beach weather today. So I thought I would share a beach themed card, and we can pretend that we are there!

I created my background with watercolours, and I  also used them to colour my little girl too.



To create the sand, I used acrylic paints in raw umber and white and mixed them together with some coarse marble dust.

Artist Trading Coins



I have been creating a lot of artist trading coins recently, they can be quite addictive! Artist trading coins are 2.5 “ circles, which are decorated in any way imaginable. They can be made from mdf, chipboard or thick card. I have been using the mdf ones, but I have recently ordered some blank chipboard at coins for a change. You write your usual artist details on the back as you would for the more traditional artist trading cards. You then of course swap them with other  artists.

I thought I would share some of my coins and ideas.

I edged the coins above with pearls.


I heat embossed these Classic Pooh stamps. These stamps were some of the very first stamps I owned.


I edged them with some bead gel.


I heat embossed these flowers, and added little pearls to them, and edged them  in more white pearls.



I created the background for these coins by making a lace design on my gelli plate, and laying the coins down onto it.

I covered these coins with some vintage pages from an Alice In Wonderland book.


Heat embossing various stamps to create a little scene.


Back to Classic Pooh to conclude.Thank you for visiitng xx
