Imagination Crafts Samples for Hochanda ODS 27th/28th June

Sharing another project made ready for Imagination Crafts One Day Special on Hochanda launching 27th/28th June 2018.

I really love how the candles turned out, they have such a lovely vintage shabby chic look to them. And just look how well they match my storage boxes.

Eileen Hull Book Club Chapter 2 - The Wrapped Journal

I am loving the new dies in Eileen's Book Club Chapter 2 Collection, the wrapped journal is sure to be a huge success. It's a fantastic design and of course being a steel rule die will cut through various types of fabrics, leathers etc. My journal is cut from mount board and all the papers inside are just copier paper. I do have to confess that I took my Gel Press Plate out for the first time, and o boy is that addictive! Before I knew it I had decorated two journal covers and a stack of papers ready to be used inside them. Sadly as I got carried away trying different things out, I totally forgot to take any step by step pictures.

I've used Imagination Crafts Starlight Paint and one of their gorgeous mixed media stencils. The paints worked beautifully on the Gel Press, and I will definitely be playing with them on their again. The covers of each signature are slightly darker as they were created with paint.

Whilst the pages were created using the same technique, only this time around with Eileen's Color Box Blends, which give a beautiful soft finish.

I love how soft the colours turned out, it means you can use the pages to write on, without your writing getting lost in the background.

I finished the cover of the journal with some odd pieces left over from a Kaisercraft project a couple of years ago. I love that saying.

Happy Crafting.

Canvas Corp Brands Naturally Aged Paint System - Weathered Wood

Yesterday I bit the bullet and filmed my first YouTube tutorial for Canvas Corp Brands, so you can imagine my excitement this morning to find out that they liked it so much they have used it on their shop page.

I tested out one of the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint Systems, to create a faux wood background, and I love the effect it gives. It's a perfect base for my 7gypsies papers.

You can check out the kit, and there's a link to my tutorial HERE
