Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
Hello my lovely friends and
visitors, I hope your week is going well.
I’ve another couple of new Followers, hello and welcome to Lesley and
Ameera Crafts, I hope you like what you see and if you ever have any questions leave
me a comment and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I possibly can.
This month seems to have shot
by! I know I’m not blogging as often as
I thought I would but I’m not worried about that especially as I am having so
much fun just playing with loads of lovely old and new stash!
Here is thecanvas…
This is a 5" x 7" canvas
A final look
me and especially for these Challenges:
do have step by step photographs of what I did and how I did it. If you would like to see let me know and I
will do a mini step by step on a blog page above.
I created the first canvas I was pleased that I had finally managed to get up
the courage to create something that wasn’t a card lol! I actually used one of my favourite stamp
sets on that canvas too. I coloured the
canvas with inks and then stamped and heat embossed directly onto it with
Sheena’s corner stamp. I don’t think I’d
do that again as it was a nightmare to get a solid stamped image and it’s been
a nightmare to get rid of that lol!
Thank goodness for DecoArt white gesso!
is one of the projects that I have been working on for a while and I finally
managed to finish and photograph it yesterday which is why I can now share it
with you. Once again it’s been a learning
experience and there are techniques and products I would use and do again but
of course there are always things I would never do again!
like this, yes it is shabby style, but I love the beautiful soft spring colour scheme
with punches of richer colours here and there because it was needed. I love the texture I was able to achieve
although I don’t think I’d use the mesh in the same way next time. Live and learn and much fun I’m having doing
so too! I hope you all like it too and I
hope to be back in a couple of days with another creation to share.
Thank you so much for taking
the time to visit and comment. I really
do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do coming Easter weekendttfn Karen x
