Eileen Hull Journal ....

Hello friends

Hope you are all good...
Brrr its dropped so cold here in the UK,
I've moved indoors from the shed....
as much as I love to create in my shed its just way too cold!

Ive really tried not to buy the Eileen Hull journal die, not because I didn't like it just because I wasn't sure I would use it, but after seeing lots of inspiration from my arty friends I decided I needed it, I wasn't disappointed, such a fun die!

I cut out out the die using greyboard and coated it in gesso and crackle paint
I then distressed it using distress paint, texture paste and lots of stitching 
I then added a frame (prima),  made layers using some re-cycled parcel paper, added some remnant rub-ons (Tim Holtz) and some vintage lace 
To finish I added some paper flowers to the frame.
This die has loads of here for more inspiration
As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and everyone!

Hope you have a great week!

Heart card

Hello friends,

Hope you are all good!
A very quick post from me tonight to share a little bit of colour...
Those that know me well will now that 
I don't tend to use colour much...
but I recently purchased some of Dina Walkers scribble sticks and I love them!

I used a scrap piece of cardboard from some packaging
used a dry brush to brush on some of dina's gesso randomly.

Next I added some dots of colour using the scribble sticks, then I stitched into the card 
I then die cut some chevrons using the Tim Holtz strip thinlits  and a heart by sizzix 
To finish I added some rub ons, layered the cardboard onto black and white card, then used an old pocket watch ring to circle the heart.

This was a fun little project to create, loved using the scribble sticks, 
(go check them out here or buy them from here)

Have a lovely weekend
