Live Laugh Love Chipboard Canvas for Bee Arty

Friday, March 12, 2021 0 Comments
Hi everyone, I'm up on the Bee Arty Blog today sharing an off the page project using the Bohemian Bliss collection. This project can be used as either a stand alone ornament, or a hanging ornament.  If you've received the Bohemian Bliss kit, you would see a 'plank' of thick chipboard. This is what I have used as the base for this project.
 
 
To start, adhere the chipboard to the floral side of the Wild Child 12x12 paper. Cut excess of and sand down the edges so they are smooth.
 

Ink all edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. I originally stenciled some feathers onto this piece but decided to go a different way (it happens when we are designing) so you can skip this step. It won't be seen on the final piece as it's hidden under all of the layers.

 
Cut a 2.5" x 8" strip from the B side of the Market Days 12x12 paper. Ink edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. Adhere to the left side of the chipboard leaving an equal distance between the top, bottom and left sides.

Trim down the pink quarter from the Patchwork 12x12 paper. Ink all edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. Adhere to the centre of the chipboard.

Random stencil some daisies using the Daisy Daze A6 stencil with some Colour Blast White Gesso and a sponge.


Fussy cut the floral and butterfly elements from the Bonus Cover Sheet

Fussy cut the banners from the Boho Tags 12x12 paper.
 
Adhere all pieces to the chipboard canvas as shown.

Cut the LIVE, LAUGH and LOVE from the Sweet Talker Word Sheet. Mat each work onto some of the left over teal paper from the Wild Child 12x12 paper. Doodle around the edge of each word with a white gel pen. Adhere to the chipboard canvas using foam tape.

Doodle lines around the edge of the pink later with a white gel pen.

Random adhere some teal sequins from the Bohemian Bliss kit and splashes of Colour Blast White Gesso mixed with water to finish.


You can add some ribbon to the top either by punching holes or using very strong adhesive to make this a hanging ornament if you wish.

Other Products Used:

I hope you have enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time, happy crafting!

Scrap the Girls March Challenge

Monday, March 01, 2021 0 Comments
Today I'm sharing my final Design Team project for the Scrap the Girls March Challenge. Scrap the Girls is a challenge whereby the only basic rule is - no boys! Every month there will be a mood board to follow for inspiration.

Here is my take on February's mood board which is themed "Child of the Wild". I went with the 'girl and her cat' for inspiration and used a photo of myself and Marci - with the obligatory Snapchat selfie of course!




Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.

Country Life Guest DT Layout for Uniquely Creative Kit Club

Sunday, February 28, 2021 0 Comments

Hi everyone. Last year I was asked to guest design for Uniquely Creative and of course I jumped at the chance. I've been a member of their kit club for a year now and the kits and collections just keep getting better and better!

I got to play with the Country Roads collection which is a masculine collection but is versatile enough to be used for any occasion. This is the first of four layouts that I have created for Uniquely Creative's Kit Club and features in the magazine.

Uniquely Creative 2021 Creative Kit Club Design Team

Monday, February 08, 2021 0 Comments
 Hi everyone! I'm excited to announce that I'm joining the Uniquely Creative's Creative Kit Club Design Team for 2021. I was asked last year if I would like to Guest Design (of course I said yes) and because they loved my work, offered me a spot on the team. I've been a huge fan of their collections since they started designing their own under their own brand. The kits are amazing and I'm sure this year will be no exception. I can't wait to start creating with this amazing line up of talent.
