Hello! We have so much wonderful inspiration to share with you here on the blog today!

Veerle Moreels is up first with not only an amazing project but a brilliant video tutorial too…



I really wanted to go and play with a Visible Image Monolith again, as it has been so long.

So I did, and had my camera running…





Curious on how you can get plastic wings to stand up without any support? I show you in my video ^.^ Enjoy!

Captured Moments

Hello! We are back this evening with an incredible project by Teresa Morgan…


My Visible Image project today is a mixed media Monolith full of texture and layers. This was produced for Craft Stamper earlier this year.




The background is created with layers of crackle paint and vintage ephemera, giving a feeling of timeworn decay. I stamped words directly onto the background as well as onto paper that was collaged over the ephemera.






Stamped words add interest to the background




My cage is half of a Christmas ornament, given a rusty makeover with paint and sand texture paste. Inside is a Prima lightbulb embellishment which I coloured with alcohol inks. My stamped moths are backed with gilding flakes for a beautiful metallic glow.











I hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at my piece today and are inspired to create something similar.




Stamps Used:


Glimmer of Light




Destination Unknown

MDF Monoliths




We adore this… so much to discover. Incredible texture and a brilliant interpretation of the quote!

Thank you Teresa ♡

Born For The Stage

Hello! We hope you have had a lovely weekend. It’s been a gorgeous day here in South Wales and this evening we headed to the beach to enjoy the evening sunshine with the girls… it was lush!


 

We have a very girly, super gorgeous project from Nicky Gilburt to share with you today…

 

Hello! I thought I would share a bit of 3D inspiration, created earlier this year for a 3D feature in Craft Stamper magazine, using the stunning Born to Perform set and one of the fabulous MDF Monoliths. Alongside the more obvious materials, I also used organza ribbon, gems, brads, heat resistant acetate and lashings of glitter!




I made the background on a piece of strong card, painted up with delicale pink chalk paints, and stencilled through to create a background. I was able then to wrap the ribbons top to bottom at each side and fasten them down on the back, before sticking the whole piece of card onto the monolith.

I stamped the beautiful ballerina onto heat resistant acetate with Versamark, and embossed with a glittery black powder. I was able to draw in the lines of light with a white pen just to make them stand out a bit more..





Careful positioning of the text, with added white highlights was followed by stamping, embossing and cutting a few stars, also from the same set – so useful for so many different ideas too!

Absolutely stunning.. what a fabulous stage for our inky ballerina! Thanks Nicky ♡
