A place where no rules apply, and fingers get inky and stained!!

Wednesday, 16 November 2011


Its Wednesday and time for a snoop round the crafting blogs led by Julia.

And here's my hive a mess and creativity ...
 I started playing yesterday afternoon, using a TH tattered flower die cut I had spare, and just paper clipped it to a piece of cardstock I had sprayed with gold glimmer mist.  I then sprayed over at an angle Santa Baby and Tattered leather mists and left to dry ... yep no heat gun!!
So we move on several hours ...
 One dried homemade paper, and one made using the resist technique.  I thought I would have a go at seeing if I could use masks as the base ... sort of worked ... need a bit of practise on that!!
 And as I loved my flower paper so much ... .I did it again using purple and blue mists ...
 and then added glitter glaze to the masked area, and glitter glam to the flower that was the mask, put it on pads and popped it on the cardstock ... liking! 

Need to play more!!

  10. Lovely. Play with absolutely no agenda or plan is often the most inspirational of all...I think we all forget this and turn to the Internet for inspiration when really, it's in bottles and pads all over our desks!

  11. So fun....I love playing like that! I think playing is the best way to learn some new tricks! Thanks for sharing your desk!

  12. I love backgrounds and misting, have been making my own, way cheaper.

  13. For being number 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry I'm late, but, after a computer crash I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your flowers you used as masks. How clever. I know it will be fun to make more of these, too.
