Klimt Multi-Media Canvas


This is the second canvas I have completed it's 20cm x 20cm and angled at the sides to provide an area of 15cm x 15cm on the front surface. I have used various media including Lumiere paints & Sherrils Sorbets, micro beads, chenille pipecleaners, seed beads, fabric covered beads, a tassel, jewels and pearls to highlight certain areas. Some hand made polymer clay embellishments with mica powders have also been applied for dimension.


The Main rubber stamp is a Cherry Pie Klimt swirls UM.

Calculating Wisdom Card


This is a card with a 'vintage' feel that I have just completed using two stamps. The main image is by Crafty Individuals CI-072 and the matted image is the 'Stone' finish from the Textures Cube by Judikins. The main image was stamped with onyx black Versafine onto a watercolour paper mat pre-coloured with dye inks in sepia and ochre. Once dry this was then lightly sprayed with Moonglow burnished bronze Glitz Spritz to add shimmer. The mat was edged with dark brown dye ink.

The second mat used the same background but was overstamped with sepia Versafine and the stone texture stamp again edged with dark brown dye ink.

The final mat is a printed paper from Dovecraft. The base card is in cream hammered finish. Before assembling the mats with DS tape two bronze square brads were applied to the top right of the first mat. The card was finished with a foiled embossed plate applied with foam pads with the word 'Wisdom'.

Circle Book

Inspired by Carrie on her Scrapwest Blog (where you can find instructions and a downloadable template). I decided to make one of the books on a more general theme of Frienship and Nature. Used printed papers, embellishments & Stamping to accomplish the piece. The covers are made of mountboard and I have used my beloved Starburst Stains as a base and then overstamped with Chalk Ink and a flourish stamp and finished with fine glitter glue, white gellyroll pen and gold dimensional paint.

Here it is:

'Enchanted' Card


Here is a little creation I have called 'enchanted'. The base cardstock is plain navy card edged with a stone texture cube stamp (Judikins) and Versamark watermark ink.
The strip down the centre is a piece of maroon card coated several times with Starburst Stains in Amaryllis Burgundy and Wisteria Purple Blue and dried with a heat gun between coats to build up a good iridescence. This has then been overstamped with the same Judikins stone stamp and Versamark to which I have heat embossed fine detail gold EP.
The next layer is a piece of Tyvek which again has been carefully heated after applying various metallic mica sprays to its surface to produce an almost vellum-like material.
The final layer is a piece of square card which has had various Starburst stains added in yellows and purples then heat embossed with a star stamp, Versamark and Moonglow Midnight Ruby Obsidian EP. The 'enchanted' was stamped on a piece of acetate with Black Stazon and applied onto the mat with 4 copper brads in the corners before mounting with double-sided tape.

Autumn Colours Collage




Just by way of breaking the silence I have done this little collage in celebration of Autumn this year. The colours of the leaves on our trees have been breathtaking and astounding.......more so than usual !!
I have had a very busy period at college lately and have found it really difficult to put time aside for crafting, much to my annoyance. However, now I have made the break I expect I will be doing a lot more posting from now on.
