Song Title Challenge - March

Hi!  I am back with this month Song Title Challenge and this time its the fabulous (well I like it :p) 'Blowin' in the Wind' by Bob Dylan.  If you know the lyrics you will know that there are lots of questions involved!!!!  But in the end I went for a dandelion clock stamp which, for me, summed up the answers.

The background has been made by spreading paints with an old credit card.  I then stamped the image onto tissue paper and coloured the back before attaching it to the coaster.

Fun with Cubbeys!

Hello!  I am excited to show you Tando's new CUBBEYS!!!!  These are a range of little shadow boxes with or without apertures.  There are different sets to get and they all fit together!!!  I had  a lot of fun with these!  I used Starter Kit 1 and then a small add-on pack.
Because I wasn't going to heavily decorate the back panels I glued them together before painting.  When dry I glued the boxes together as seen.  Then I decorated some card to cover 3 of the apertures once I had planned what was going where.
To fill the boxes I chose to make some things which represent my love of crafting :D ...
...a little book for journaling , some wonky patchwork for my sewing, knitting, a teensy mixed media panel, a Tando *house* of course and some pencils for my love of drawing! I found a lovely quote from Albert Einstein to add which sort of sums it all up don't you think?
There are so many things that you can do with these *Cubbeys*.  What will you do?
Till next time, take care, xxx

Banner no3

Its 'colour theme' week again over at Tando Creative and they are lovely Spring-like colours!  Continuing with my *scalloped banner*  I have added a *bird* and some little *flowers* and did the background in the lovely bright yellow of the choice.

After painting the base in the bright yellow I dabbed some blue through the pretty *fern mask*.  When that was dry I mixed some green into some *modelling paste* and applied that through the same mask.  The little flowers, bird and branch have been painted to match the other colours in the theme.  Like the others I have done, I added a tassel.
Thank you for coming to see us, do pop back, Hugs, Karen x

Chipboard and fabric!

I love adding fabric to chipboard and have done it a few times.  It adds a completely different dimension.  Today I have covered a *heart* and added it to a *media board*.
I beaded the fabric before I glued it onto the heart, tucking the raw edges around to the back.  For the media board I gesso'd and then laid some *crackle paste* through the *heart* mask.  When it was dry I gently sponged on some *DecoArt Yellow Green Light* followed by *Primary Magenta* until I felt the balance was right.  A little light stamping and a torn strip of fabric finishes it off.
Thank you for looking today and do call again.  Hugs, Karen x
