Moon and Back

I have chosen this plaque as my post for today.
Quite quickly made, it was a request from a friend, as its what her and her grand-daughter say to each other...The plaque was prepared by glueing background paper on, it has a cloud design on that doesn't show very well in the photo. I then prepared the heart and moon by covering them with white glitter paper. All the letters were cut using my Cricut machine. Finished it off by placing peel-off stars around randomly. Threaded red ribbon through for it to be able to be hung.

Olly's mirror

This is one of the Christmas presents l made this year, for my grandson, Oliver.....
This started out as a white mirror, l then black Gesso'd it after gluing several pieces all over with embossed card, like patchwork really. I then chose the blue gilding wax plus some silver to bring out the pattern. The next thing was to place and glue the cogs, cars, key etc. also waxed these. I have made several of these now, including, l each for my grand-daughters (twins) now at Uni...and also one for my other grand-son and his girlfriend who are moving into their home.
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, please leave comments....Thank you.

Easel Calendar

Hope everyone is's my post for today
This was made from two 6 x 6 white cards and made into an easel card, the papers used were some left from one of an ultimate pack from Docrafts, and also the topper. The calendar was matted and layered onto the same black card that was used for the matting on the main card, also added some card candy to finish off. Art Deco is extremely popular on my stall and these have been a good seller.
