so this week i am here to share with you my sneak peak on the next die in the Book Club release. This one is a card holder, planner keeper, storage holder… well you get the idea. like i said last week so many possibilities. here it is!
i chose to use mine to hold some cards!!
don’t forget to jump on over to Eileen’s (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com) page to see what everyone else is sharing this week!!
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.ca/2016/07/sizzix-party-ideas-with-eileen-hull-dies NULL.html)and a picnic organizer by Pam Bray (http://www NULL.pammejoscrapbookflair NULL.com/2016/07/by-seaside-picnic-organizer-with-eileen 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.com/store/pp-kn06117 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 NULL.com/661423/sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-daisy-wreath)texture impression folder and the and the Pansy (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661109/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-pansy)die to create my flowers.
then I created my canisters (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/659877/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-canister) 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!
and here are a few close ups of those flowers!!
how beautiful are these containers.. they are going to be perfect sitting on a table filled with some sand and a few tealights during my next pool party!
what have you got planned for this summer!! what kind of party decor are you making!! please do share with us on Facebook and on Eileen’s page!
literally, color burst and time together and what do you get!!
an altered clock for my new space!! I had so much fun creating this quick and simple project.
I started by sprinkling some chosen color burst on the face of the clock
added a bit (or a lot of water)
and heat blasted it!!
I next used Ken’s Butterfly Daisy Mandala Cut’n’Color (https://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=NwwcwhyqN-8) Stamp and some click it ink and then quickly sprinkled some of my Emerald Creek Clear Embossing powder on to it and TADA!
here is my new clock!
how simple and quick is that!!!
thanks for stopping by
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.com/store/pp-kn04509 NULL.html?w=ken+oliver).
I started by covering the banners with DecoArt (http://decoart NULL.com/products/)black gesso. I originally had the idea if I sprinkled color burst (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-kn06339 NULL.html?w=ken+oliver)onto the gesso and then when I applied the DecoArt (http://decoart NULL.com/products/) 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 NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=NwwcwhyqN-8) 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.com/store/pp-kn06394 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!!
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
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
to seal these so I could put my figure and not in I used some liquid glass (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/liquid-glass) 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!!
i love layering my color burst and heat blasting it with my gun!!
now it was time to paint on my figure using some black gesso (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/gesso)
now here is my piece set aside waiting to dry
i 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
and here they are, all hung up in my room!!
