Shabby Chic Explosion Box

Hello everyone! I hope that yo are having a wonderful week. Today I am sharing a project that I have created using  the French Roses Collection from Megs Garden.

 I decided to create an explosion box, as I wanted to feature the ephemera (cut and create elements of the collection), lace and also beautiful flowers that coordinate so beautifully with this collection.

The centrepiece of my project is the cake. It features lace, pearls and flowers from Megs Garden.
On all of my panels, I used a circular Marianne Design die as my base and built up from it. Here I added a clock ephemera element as my focal image and added some flowers and a butterfly.

 Adding a flourish and flowers adds a a softness to each page and an overall cohesion to the panels.

When selecting my images, I selected pairs...two florals and two non florals...for balance.

Hot Mess Canvas Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had  great week. Over the last few nights, I have been trialing this new project as I am planning to teach it as a co-curricular lesson with some students at school. It's been one which I have been keen to have a try and it's very easy to create. It's messy but fun- aptly named a hot mess!

I selected a free svg file of a dream catcher as my image and cut it out using Cricut removable vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo. I used a selection of Kaisercraft acrylic paints and painted my 'hot mess' of squares and rectangles over my canvas using a paintbrush. After 24 hours, I transferred my design onto my canvas using contact paper then sealed my design with a thin layer of white Kaisercraft paint, then covered the entire canvas in multiple layers of white paint until the colours had disappeared.

Leaving the canvas to dry for another 24 hours, I removed the vinyl design, to reveal the mutli-coloured dream catcher.

Below is the video tutorial demonstrating this technique.

Hello everyone! I hope you are well. Today I am sharing a card that I have made using papers and products from the Rosabella Collection by Kaisercraft.I kept the design basic so that this could be an all occasion card in my stash for when I need a go to card for an unexpected extra something!

I used some of the collectables along with the paper blooms to embellish my card to add to the vintage feel which I love. I used foam tape to add dimension to my layers as well.
