JUST LETTING YOU KNOW HOW WE ARE GOING WITH OUR TWINCHIE SWAP.
I AM STILL WAITING ON THREE LOTS OF TWINCHIES, I HAVE PM’D THESE LADIES AND ONE LOT HAS BEEN SENT!
COULD YOU LET ME KNOW IF YOU CANT MAKE IT SO I CAN SWAP AND RETURN THE TWINCHIES OVER THE WEEKEND!
I bought a couple of small tins to alter at the paper show and I decided to get them out and have a play! I turned them into mini albums! One for mum to have as a brag book and one for me!
As they are metal I gessoed them and covered them with pp! I measured the insides of them and made an accordion album from pp to put inside with a ribbon tab to pull it out! I adhered it to the inside of the tin and used photos and embellies on each one! On the outside I girlied them up with flowers etc!
No I haven’t really!! These lovely lot of ATC’s I received this morning in the mail from the S.A. Atc Swap Group! A great bunch of girls who I swap with every month! This lot is from the “Blues” theme and they are so talented! More yummies to add to my album!
I decided to have a go at altering this for a challenge!
I wasn’t sure what to do, or if I even wanted to have a go at it. Not that I haven’t got a few Kaiser OTP things I could have a go at!! I was thinking about doing a layout this arvo but changed my mind and decided to give it a go!!!
I was helping mum awhile ago clean out a couple of kitchen cupboards and she was going to chuck this “divided canister thingy” out, so you know me saw a bit of ‘potential’ and adopted it!!! I hated the colours and it was pretty retro so I decided to get it out, and give it a face lift!!
As it was shiny, I used a couple of coats of Gesso Primer all over it so my paint would adhere to it! I used some scrunched up glad wrap with some pink Acrylic paint to give it a textured look!
I adhered the lace around each compartment and some of my handmade flowers to the lid! The Twiddleybitz Butterfly, I Gessoed and dabbed some texture paste and paint over it!!
I havent done any OTP for a while and I really enjoyed getting messy and putting it together!
I think I will give it back to mum for “Mother’s Day and she can use it in her bedroom or sewing room for all her “Bits and Bobs!” lol!
I created this lo today. I didn’t do it as a challenge or anything; I had these few pics of Sam ‘helping’ me out as he does and I wanted to scrap them!!! I started with a sketch for a bit of direction, but it is completely different. It got me started and it didn’t take me long at all to put it together!!
I thought blues for a boy cat and for some reason I got ‘flowery”. Oh well for a cat layout it doesn’t really matter, does it? It is what you would call’ monochromatic’ (all the same hues of one colour). I just enjoyed making this lo o f him to show what he gets up to on my desk all the time and into my wool! lol! I know a few of you out there have the same trouble with your feline friends!! lol!!!
I thought that title for my ATC’s was pretty cool as I joined in the “Metallic Theme ATC Swap for May” over at http://born2create.ning.com
The girls come up with great challenges and I had to have a good think about this one! I used al foil as the base and embossed it in my Cuttlebug with butterflies! I then punched out some butterflies using some Metal Shim, (thin metal sheeet!) then embossed it also! I gave them a bit of dimension with some ink and foam dots!
They were a bit hard to photograph but you get the idea. I am pretty pleased witht the final result! TFL 🙂
This time last year it was Cody’s 18th and as we were in Portland on holiday he missed out on going out for T and a cake! So being the great mum that I am lol!, when I went to Geelong yesterday I bought him a Black Forest cake to make up for it and for his 19th! It is so yummy and fresh with chocolate and cherries; Cody’s favourite!!
Of course I had to snap a few pics of him with his cake!!! We are really enjoying sharing it with him of course!!! Now JJ has put in his order for his birthday in June!!!
