Magic is Something You Make

 

For the canvas I used a chipboard backing from a paper pad and coated it with gesso.

I glued layers of tissue paper on the top part of the canvas. When dry I used watercolours on top of the tissue and then stamped the sentiment. The remaining canvas was coloured with dye inks and splattered with watercolours.

I made the flowers with strips of fabric which I rolled around and around into a circle. Some twisted green net became its leaves.

I finished by adding a little sparkle and some cross stitches in a silver thread.

Thank you for visiting.

Please take a look at all the fabulous projects from the Mixed Media Design Team we have a fabulous guest Designer this month Ingrid. I hope you will join in with the challenge this month, have fun!

A surprise and finally finished 2015 book

I had a lovely surprise this evening. My Believe card was selected as one of the top five at The Allsorts Challenge Blog.Thank you so much, there are so many very talented ladies taking part I was lucky to have been chosen!

Today I finally finished my 2015 em err do I call it a scrapbook,or a diary or a journal? It's certainly not an Art Journal, that is something I want to eventually try my hand at, it's too small for a conventional scrapbook.... Em...oh well I will just call it a book recording 2015.

I covered my book in a cloud fabric and I cut out Classic Pooh and Piglet from some other fabric and stitched them on. I added a little bit of stuffing to Pooh to make him stand out. I cut out and then stitched on lots of wild poppies. I don't have a sewing machine and my hand stitching is not too wonderful so please don't look too close!
