Funky Flower Collage

Well as January draws to a close, I thought I would take a little time out from, gathering pictures to up load to the e-commerce site, (its almost there), and doing the craft stand at Don Valley Stadium and the million and one other jobs we do in life, to show and tell an on going project.

As birthday and Christmas presents to me, I enrolled on the Brave Girl on line art courses.  Which are great fun and although I paint away, I never get round to blogging any.  Here is one of the funky flower collage I keep adding too.


The background was one of those canvas I just covered in left over paint and been around a while.


The flowers, made from, paper, wall paper and material.  (I keep a lot of old cloths especially Tally's as she grows out of them)
I Mod Podged then down, with beads and buttons etc.


Then I painted some of the flowers, the grass is just a mix of all sorts of green paints. 
The stalks are different colour  ribbons.  Some of which I had to buy as I didn't have enough different colours.
Now it sits for awhile until I think of some words to put on it.

Happy crafting.

12 Tags of 2013 - January

Hoping the New Year if treating you all well, mine is hopping along at a steady pace, almost keeping up with the to do list, (trick is not to make it too long).

The January tag for the Tim Holtz challenge has been sitting almost finished for over a week, seeing as its a little quite round here due to the first lot of snow for 2013 it was time to finish it and up load.

If you want to look at Tim's tag and all the details pop over to his blog by pressing here.  He has also been showing sneak peaks of his new products launched this week at the CHA show, easy to find just one or two items to put on the wish list!!!

As normal my tag looks nothing like Tim's that's the fun of being me. I did use an embossing folder and some words for the New Year, (just like Tim).




Supplies used.
Dancers Girlfriends stamp from Art impressions.
Embossing folder from Couture Creations
Tag and paper from stash.
Ribbon from Stash.
Ballet charm (from Tally's Stash - have to give back after taking photo!)
Distress inks (you know me any colour to hand)
Promarkers (again any colour that takes my fancy)
Gem's from stash.

The words out of the same stamp set as the Dancers.
'Dance like no one's watching...
who can have you committed'




Thanks for visiting, hope it made you smile.
