Down the rabbit hole… Alice Mirror being made

Through the rabbit hole… Alice Mirror being made Instructions:  1. Take your mirror and take it fully apart.     2. Paint the frame with a general cheap white paint (or colour of your choice) the kind you can pick up in DIY stores.       3. After this base coat is dry, apply a top coat of white Acrylic paint. The reason i do this is the white Acrylic is ‘whiter’ and is wipeable once finished.       4. Once this is dry, you need to engrave your design onto the frame & mirror, for this you […]

Painting the Millennium Falcon! – Dry brushing technique

Happy Friday everyone Before you get to wondering too much, i didn’t need scaffolding for this job!  hehe…. Although I’m sure painting the real Millennium Falcon would be fun, this is a mini Falcon, that is made from air dry paper clay and was for use on my hubby’s Valentines card. I love paper clay, but don’t use it as much as I should! Its so light weight that its perfect for adding things like this to cards and projects, without adding any weight, which means two things, my card doesn’t topple over all the time and it doesn’t add […]

New toy!

Just a little share… I squealed when I opened the post this morning!! My new tool has arrived and I’m in love… I can make perfectly sealed pockets/bags and seal things away safely. As you’d guess i was sealing up everything lol. I even had a go at sealing up irregular shapes and still loved the finish Oh how easily amused I am lol Does anyone else own the wonderful We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool? If so, how do you find it? What other things do you use it for (I have so many ideas) xx
