In love with Peacock Feathers

In love with Peacock Feathers So in love with these Peacock feathers, they are lasercut from thick chipboard and are so beautiful and detailed.      I ummed and ahhhed about cutting them from wood, but from a crafting perspective much preferred them cut from the chipboard as its more flexible if I wanted to mould the feather around something or snip it to make it shorter for a project. I used Dylusion sprays to add the colour and managed to get to colours to mix beautifully in a mottled way, that really makes them look striking as peacock feathers. […]

Laser cleaning help!

Laser cleaning help!   Incase you missed it over on our Facebook page I just wanted to share a quick photo of my laser bed cleaning helper! I can’t normally clean the big laser bed, unless I let 8 month old Marshall help hehe. I’m not sure how much help it is when he runs of with my dirty sponge, lol, but it certainly means I get a bit of excercise chasing him!

rose jar

A magical Enchanted Rose

A magical Enchanted Rose   A special request, resulted in this beautiful design, which has now been added to the store The design took a while to get just right, especially trying the names in lots of different places including on the rose and the falling petals, but I finally settled on them around the bell jar and am really pleased with how it looks. I also made the decision to place the jar on a stand so it didn’t look like it was just floating! I hope you love it as much as I do, its perfect for those […]

Lilly’s Birthday boxes Our youngest daughter turned 5 at the start of the month! I’m not quite sure where the 5 years have gone lol, but she makes me laugh and my heart melt everyday.

Or in our case party boxes! Each party guest received a flip top MDF box filled […]
