Magnolia bag

Hiya, weathers not nice today is it raining here oh well never mind.
Today I want to share with you the bag I've made.
I didn't have a pattern, just knew how I wanted it to look
and this is what I came up with.
once I started it I just couldn't put it down.

Made the canvas bag added two types of trim at top there.
Stamped the magnolia image with memento ink brown, ironed it to heat set it.
Coloured with a selection of copic markers, they do bleed a little so take care
 I tested on scrap fabric 1st as the colours  can be different shades when applied to fabric
ironed again to heat set colours.
 flowers at the base of magnolia stamp, I embroidered with steam stitch, bullion stitch and french knots
The little bees were done using french knots, a chain stitch for the wings using gold thread.
Lastly I  added stickles to wings. well a girl has to have a little sparkle.

Hope you like it, thank you for dropping in to my blog

Somthing other than a card

Evening, Sorry I've not posted anything for a little while. Just been busy. The twins over the road are going on a night out and turned up on my door step yesterday, wanting cave girl costumes making ... ekkkkkkkkkkk not just 1 but 2 costumes  to make.
My sewing not great but I can get by. Would help if they stopped changing there minds tho, of how they want them. Any way never mind. lets get on to showing you something I made for my craft room a little while ago, its my chalk board.
This is my chalk board that I made with a little help from my hubby.
I drew the shape  I wanted and he cut it out for me.
This shows the rubber stamp  I used.

I was going for the distress look with the paint
So I painted  it  with gray then painted over with an antique cream emulsion,
sanded the edges to give the worn look.
After a few months the paint cracked and gave the of look of crackle paint this
 may have been because I
 mixed in water to the paint to make it go further as I only bought the sample pot and not a big tin of paint. But I love the look even tho it happened by mistake.
The rubber stamped image was just stamped in black memento ink
The little shelf is so handy for storage as are the little knobs I added at a later date to hang things from.

Right one costume made and one more to go best get it made before she changes her mind how she wants it
Once I get these costumes sorted I can get on with some things I want to make.

Thank you for stopping by

TPLO1 Anything but square- Molly blooms

Morning,  Thanks for dropping by so what do I have for you today? If you have hopped on by to The Paperlane Blog in recent weeks you may know that Caz has launched the paperlane challenge blog. Where each month the DT and you will set new challenges.  You can share with us your lovely entry's to the challenge to win some fab candy.

This my first  entry to any challenges. also as a DT member. Hopefully there will be many more fun and exciting challenges in store.
This months challenge was Anything but square - and to use molly bloom stamps Molly or George  as main image.

So here's my submission to the challenge.
I went for something other than my usual card making and tried a shaker wall  hanging.
My idea was to make a summer seaside feel to it, hence the flags and colours used.  This stamp was just perfect as it looked like she was holding her dress up while she paddled in the sea.

linen card, acetate, paper doily at the back, watercolour paper
nitwit paper- in the meadow
die Tim Holtz baroque large and smaller one
Stamps used molly blooms
pearl trim
2 brass shells toned down  with a wash of acrylic cream paint
stick on pearls
distress inks used to colour image
scattered straw, aged mahogany,chipped sapphire blue,
 and yes vintage photo had to creep in some where (for the hair)
 blue glitter for the sea of course
oh and some seam binding was used for the hanger.

So why dont you come and join us on the next challenge for a chance to win some lovely candy.
 and while your ther you can see the lovely items myself and the other members of the DT created.
Hope to see your artistic flare put in to practice at the next challenge.
