Black and White card

Hi everyone Candy here
today I have creted a card for you all using the moodboard
Black, white, one other colour and stitching

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

I have used a 6 x6 inch easel card for the base.
There are two layers of coloured papers on the base one will measure
5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches and the other 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches.
Use an edge distresser and distress around the edges of these two papers.
Tape the 5 7/8 inch square to the front of the cardstock base with tape
 then using foam tape under the 5 3/4 inch pattern paper square.

I have cut 3 rectangle pieces at different widths and then cut a V at one end.
Distress around each of these and tape down.
Add the pink heart doily, flowers, pearl leaves and sprays 
and the Happy Birthday sediment.
Now for the base of the card cut two pattern pieces one at
4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and the other at 4 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches.
Distress around the edges as well.
Tape down the smaller to the bottom paper piece
then using foam tape tape this to the card base towards
the front of the card.
Cut a rectangle of black cardstock at 4 x 1/2
 and another using white at 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches then cut a V in one end
 and distress around the edges and tape down onto the pattern paper 
then add your flowers.
I used a black pen to add some false stitching lines to the spotty

Believe in yourself

Hi everyone
I have been busy so far this month
and I thought I would make something a bit different
and do a little mixed media as I haven't
done anything like that for a while.

This is for my monthly Off the Rails Scrapbooking design team piece.
we had to create something using the mood board.

And this is what I have created using the moodbaord

I used a piece of A4 cardstock and covered
it well with some clear gesso.
I then applied my mask and texture paste and dries well.
Using the gelatos I just coloured here and there with the different colours. 
 And rubbed then in gently with my finger and spray water.
Let this dry well.
I then applied the mask and texture paste over the top again.
I went around the edges of my cardstock with some black gelato.
And using a fan brush splatter black ink over. 
I also went around the edges with the fan brush as well.
Using the black gel pen go around the words
butterfly and branches to make these stand out.

Products used

White A4 cardstock
clear gesso
Prima believe in me mask
Liquidtex light modelling paste

Shabby Chic banner

Hi everyone Candy here with a creation I have been working on for some weeks now.
I am making an altered embrodery hoop for a 
swap group I am in and I had to make a banner
so here it is.

Sorry it is fairly big and hard to photograph, but I did my best.
I have made this using some 12 x 12 chipboard.
Cutting three triangle pieces and covering them
with paper, lace and plenty of pretties.
They are decorated both front and back. 
But on the back it is really simple.

This is the middle banner

This is the left banner 

And this is the right one

I cut the frame in quarters and using the gold and white
embossing powder, embossed them all but I only used three
at the top of each one.
I did the same with the double hearts and the word love.

I used the polka dot paper for my background and tore the brush paper
into four pieces different sizes.
Tape these onto the base in layers and ruffle up the edges
I double matted the photo it measures approx
3 1/2 x 4 inches.
Tape all the emphemia around under the photo
and add the hearts into the layers of the 3 papers also add your puffy stickers and 
the word Beautiful and flowers.

I used 3 wooden butterflies and I covered them with some mousse
using aqua then the pink around the edges.
I also went around the edges with a gold and then a black gel pen.
Also using the gel pens go around the edges of the base paper 
and all the emphemia  pieces.
Cover your photo with a scrap of cardstock and 
splatter with some black ink and a fan brush.

Mixed media canvas

Hi Everyone Candy here with my latest mixed media canvas.
This one is for an order for a friend
from her Granddaughter to her Aunt...
Just love this verse

I'm not just an
I'm a big cup of 
Covered in Awesome
with a splash of sassy
and a 
dash of crazy

I firstly applied white gesso to the canvas.
Then applied the modelling paste and the mask all over.
Let this dry
Apply your sprays I used coffee and turquoise around the canvas
I used a spray water bottle to dilute the colour
and don't forget to dry between colours or you will
make mud...
It took me a while until I was happy with the colours
just don't forget it will dry lighter.

I glued the plastic frame using a good strong glue
My canvas had a cut out piece where you place the photo
This is where I glued my frame.
If your frame is glossy give a rub down with sandpaper
to roughen so the gesso and sprays will take.

I covered my chipboard pieces with gesso
then using versamark then my embossing enamel
cover well.

Then place your flowers, chipbaord pieces, leaves etc where
you want them, then glue down.
I added some gold around my canvas just to give it a highlight.
I also went over my verse with a black permanent pen to make stand out.

Advent Calendar

Hello ladies today I have created an Advent Calendar.
This is for my grand daughter Zarna.

I have just put together a Kaisercraft Advent Calendar
using good pva wood glue and clamps
to hold it together until it dries.
I painted the whole thing with some white gesso, I gave it 2 coats
This is just to protect it from the elements.

I measured and cut the christmas papers to suit. 
Then applied using matt medium.
Front of the draws, inside the square and also around the outside.

I painted all the chipboard pieces with white gesso.
Snowflakes, merry christmas, the two berries and leaves and also the scroll on the top.

The scroll I coated well with the shabby white embossing enamel.
The snowflakes and merry christmas word cover with seafoam embossing powder.
And the berries cover with red and the leaves with green embossing powder.

Put everything together and use some dimensional magic to make the
numbers 1 - 24 stand out.

Photo canvas frame

Hello everyone. 
Welcome to another month full of creativity.
Today I have altered a 10 x 12 inch canvas and an old plasic frame
I had in my stash for Off the rails.
I have created this frame for my mum for christmas,
I am sure she will love it.

Here is the mood board I got my inspiration from

I firstly covered the canvas with white gesso and also the frame
as it was blue I had to use a few coats to cover it.
When the canvas was dry I glued on the 3 pieces of lace using matt medium.
Then added some spray, only a light cover.
I then glued on the frame and used clamps to hold until it dried.
I waited overnight so it was really dry.


Add the flowers with a strong glue.
Then I added some white gesso and prills
to the edges of the flowers and leaves.

The photo measures 3 x 5 inches
I sanded around the edges then addes some
white gesso with my finger then more prills.
I cut 3 lace flowers in half then glued them under my photo.
And I raised my photo to make it pop.

Products used
10 x 12 inch canvas
Old plastic photo frame
White gesso
Matt medium
450 glue
Lace and flowers from The Vintage Chics
Lindy's - Chateau  rose spray
