Eileen Hull party decorations!

hello everyone!

this month at Eileen Hull Designs the inspiration team is bringing you all sorts of ideas to help decorate those special occasions…

so far we have seen a beautiful centre piece by Tracy Evans  (http://craftaddicts-tracyevans NULL.blogspot NULL.html)and a picnic organizer by Pam Bray (http://www NULL.pammejoscrapbookflair NULL.html) from her and this week i am here to show you how to turn your canister die into a simple yet quick candle holder

so to start with, if you remember last month we were working with Rendre paper and yes, i tested it again. this time using a variety of color burst (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html) brights and lots of water.  love the color variations one can get by using color burst.. it is always like a party waiting to happen!!

once the paper was dry i flipped and did the opposite colours on the back side .. so warms and cools.. with the Rendre paper it did not seep through so this was a total love relationship for me!!

and then when the final dry was done i used Eileens Daisy wreath (http://www NULL.sizzix impression folder and the and the Pansy (http://www NULL.sizzix to create my flowers.

then I created my canisters (http://www NULL.sizzix using matboard and the same texture impression folder.

here they are!!  i love the richness of the colorburst flowers on the plain white embossed mat board!

WELCOME color burst

hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a quick and simple banner created using the Ken Oliver watermedia banner kit (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver).

I started by covering the banners with DecoArt (http://decoart gesso. I originally had the idea if I sprinkled color burst (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver)onto the gesso and then when I applied the DecoArt (http://decoart modeling paste through my TCW stencil my letters that the  paste would suck it up through and tada color bursted letters but it didn’t work as I wanted..  the universe decided that I needed them to just stay white!! I am okay with that

so instead I added my pops of colour using the butterfly daisy stamp and the butterfly daisy mandala stamp (https://www painting them using color burst and my paint brush. to give the images a crisper look I stamped them using the click-it ink pad (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver)and them heat embossed them using Emerald Creeks clear embossing powder.

I then cut them out using the matching die.. so quick and easy to do!

and then it is just a matter of decorating my banner

thanks for stopping by. I hope you have been creating and sharing with us all!!


color burst project

hello everyone!!

today i am here to share with you my final piece in my yoga series. this one features me!

so i decided this time that i wanted my background to be a more subtle colour with the focus being on the actual chakras. so let’s get started with the show and tell!

so i started with a  few of the ‘warm’ color burst colours onto my canvas color burst

I then made my picture I wanted to use for this piece and placed the chakras in spot. I traced the spots onto my canvas and using color burst and a paint brush painted them in place

chakras beginning

to seal these so I could put my figure and not in I used some liquid glass (http://decoart to protect them

but then I had another idea….why not make the whole background my chakra colours and so the adding of layers began!!

change of plans

i love layering my color burst and heat blasting it with my gun!!

painting in me

now here is my piece set aside waiting to dry

chakra and mei then inked the edges of my piece using the black gesso and once again set it aside to dry..

the final step was to add that layer of Ice Resin to my piece. here it s finished

Eileen Hull Flower Party Release

hello everyone!!

Welcome back to week three of the Flower Party Die  (http://www NULL.sizzix with Eileen Hull!! this month the Eileen Hull Design Team are showcasing projects using Eileen Hull’s (http://www NULL.eileenhull new flower die release.

  • Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die – Flower Pocket (http://shrsl

i started my project by sprinkling color burst on all, yes all the new release flowers that i had received from Eileen….yes all of them!!

EH new release i then activated it with waterIMG_3796i did some in cool colours and some in warmIMG_3798

and one in every colour!IMG_3799

now here is what these ones looked like as they lay drying….i wasn’t really sure what i was going to do nextIMG_3800and that is where i somehow stopped taking pictures  and go lost in the process but i can tell you my next step was to let the color burst completely dry and then i worked but my next steps were basically shaping my flowers on to stems i created using the new twist and style tool (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html).. once that was done I noticed that to me there were missing a little something so I unshaped them and applied a nice layer of Decoart crackle glaze (http://decoart to each of them and then once they were almost dry I reshaped them again!

and here is what i ended up with!

EH floral eh orchid in the centre of all my flowers I sprinkled a bit of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html)for a little pop of glitterEileen Hull blue flower  Eileen Hull multiflower for my flower pocket (http://www NULL.sizzix painted / layered it with different decoart media paints (http://decoart and then once dry coated it with the crackle glaze  and then added some corners to it.flower caseat the end I decided I wanted them to be a little stiffer so applied a generous layer of DecoArt gloss varnish (http://decoart the entire project

and so here  it is all together!  I wanted to give my piece the look of an antiqued ceramic collection which is why I gave it all a nice coat of the crackle.  the pictures don’t do them justice…eileen hull flowersI hope I have given you some ideas on what to create using Eileen’s newest release!! for more ideas drop on over to Eileen Hull – Three Dimensional Art (http://www NULL.eileenhull and see what the rest of her Inspiration Team has come up with!!
