DIY Baby Room Art

Hello all!  I have some super exciting news...  I'm going to be a Nana for the first time.  My daughter is due to have her first wee Baby in May!  She loves owls so I have been creating some art work to go into the baby's room.  With this months theme being DIY I thought it would be a perfect project to share.


I created the background first by painting the two blues,  a light and dark with Tim holtz distress paint as I knew that it doesn't run when you apply other products on top.  I then used a star mask and added a layer of  multi-medium.  Once the multi-medium was dry I then applied a layer of  White fab foil on top of the stars. I just cut strips of the foil and rub it over the multi-medium.

To added more dimension to my project I used Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter.  This embossing powder is a must to have in your kit!  It gives any project  a lovely shimmer.

I did not add the glitter to every star.  Just random ones all over the project. 



To finish my project off I up-cycled and old frame I had found in an op shop.  Because My project is multi layers I took the glass out.  It will still be easy to clean as I have added a sealant over the entire page for ease of cleaning.  

WOW! Embossing Pen

I used my Wow Embossing Pen to go along the edge of the Frame  and then added some more Neutral Ultra Shimmer to bring the Frame and art together.  


I hope they like it.  She found out that she was having a wee boy so it will fit perfectly into his room.
That's all I have to share today. Please let me know what you think!  I would love to hear.  Until next time, happy scrappin everyone xox Donna

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
