 Morning Crafty friends,
Todays offering is a canvas.
using gesso to prime the canvas then antique linen distress paint, Vintage photo distress Ink and various mister sprays to create the background.

 I used a honeycomb mask with some texture paste to add some interest and a resin owl coloured with Treasure Gold.
 Various flowers cut with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and some foliage dies.
 I cut the owls with the Spellbinders Nested Owls dies and embossed with a crackle embossing folder. some cogs etc for facial features and some decorative corners all coloured with more Tresured Gold and Cosmic Shimmer gilding Wax. Hope you like it.

two cards I made today using a Becca Feekan tutorial on You Tube to create the card base. Love these!
I really am a bad blogger. I seem to spend all my time reading others blogs than updating my own. I shouldn't think I'm going to change anytime soon as there seems to be too much going on in my life and not enogh time to blog. So occasionally I'll post some piccies. And hopefully in the not too distant futute I'll get my act together and try to be a good blogger!!


Heres a scrapped paint technique picture I did at a recent workshop with the talented Hels Sheriden.

not a very good picture. My photography skills need a major overhaul!
