Another sample, this time I mixed Pebeo Modelling Medium with 3 colours of Pebeo Studio Acrylic Paint. I stuck the stencil to the background with masking tape and scraped the coloured medium over the stencil until there were no gaps. I removed the stencil and washed it straight away to remove the excess paint. I added a little glitter because I love all things sparkly! The modelling medium makes the acrylic paint stiffer and goes through the stencil more easily. I think I could have done with a bit more modelling medium as it leaked a bit. I still like it though. Hope you do too. Let me know.

If you have already seen my post on 20 February 2012 you will know what a wonderful picture you can create with some dye ink, a brayer and some rubber stamps. By using different coloured inks and stamps you can produce a masterpiece every time. I tried to make the foreground look like water. I couldn’t resist putting some dragonflies into my picture. I highlighted the leaves with a silver gel pen and added some glitter to make it magical. Click on the photo for a closer look. I hope you like it, let me know.

I’m starting to realise that Owls are very popular at the moment. Whenever I post one to my blog I get more views!! Yippee!! Thank you very much for visiting and I hope there is something else you enjoy here too. This little chap is the last of a batch I created to sell at a craft fair and also gave as Christmas presents. The paperclip is quite big so he’s just over 5 inches or 13 centimetres in total. I used a paper ribbler to give him some texture and covered him in copious amounts of glitter so he would cheer you up on a bad day. Who wouldn’t smile when you see him? I was thinking of making some for our etsy shop, would you like to buy one? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment, I answer every one!

I’ve been titivating this little painting. The centres of the flowers needed encrusting and enhancing. I used micro beads, iridescent jewels and eyelash glitter. I love how it has turned out.

This is my little writing desk which I have positioned on the first half landing on our staircase. It reminds me of the Kermit the Frog song “Halfway down the stairs  is the place where I sit” . I looked everywhere for a small desk that would fit, and drove up to Blyth to an elegant shop called Frameworks . It has a lovely cafe/restaurant with beautiful food and a piano player at lunch time. A gentleman played old style music and I’ll give away my age because I recognised music which Russ Conway used to play on the BBC when I was a child. I’ve colour themed all my knick knacks, and am pleased with the small picture I painted on the easel on the left. It still needs some encrusting I think……. a few micro beads perhaps or some ultrafine glitter to add that little element of sparkle? The little silver daily calendar on the right came from my Mum & Dad’s home and is especially dear to me.
