In the pink


Evening to all you wonderful followers and friends
I have been going mad not being able to craft properly 
So I wrecked the front room to find some bits I knew I wanted to do 
a canvas.
As June is the race for life month I thought I would do 
it in pinks.


I painted the canvas with white and pink mixed then I used a pink ink spray
added some bits of worded paper and some bits of a 6x6 paper,
then added paint to them so they faded into the back ground.
I put the ink spray on a sponge and dabbed it and blended it over the canvas 
and the wooden frames and letters,
I then sparkle medium on the 2  frames and added a large gem.
The lady in the center is one I given by Lisa Tyrell some time ago
I add flowers and stick pins all from my stash I made the pins to match.
I added lace and bling down the side and a strip of bling on the top.
And loads of perils and bling also from my stash.
Well I feel better now I done some crafting LOL
Thank you all for stopping by and leaving some fabulous 
love it really dose make me feel good.
Big Hugs and love to all.

May Arts ribbon design team call


Morning my lovely followers and friends
hope your having a fab week 
This post is for the DT call for May Arts ribbon written/video

I would love to do video tutorials and have many on my You Tube Channel.

My first post is a crochet ribbon basket with 2 colour ribbons, white satin and gray organizer. 




2nd post is a mini album I made from scratch using my new prima Stationers Desk A4 papers and some ATC bits I have.
The tags are ATC papers and card the frame is also from the ATC collection.
I used ribbon for holding the pages in place and the yellow flowers on the front are ribbon flowers.
I used ribbon on the tags inside the mini and as the fastener.







My 3rd project is an altered wooden spoon 


First I took 2 sprays Lilac Night and Aqua Lagoon and spritzed a bit on to my mat, it only needed one squirt of each colour.
Then using a make up sponge dabbed it all over the spoon.
I used Aqua first and it seems a greenie/blue 
Then dabbed a bit of the Lilac here and there.





Then I used a Versa Mark ink pad and dabbed it on bits of the spoon then added some Meltdust which is like embossing powder.
Then I heated it up.





Before I added the feathers I was going to wrap ribbon around it but changed my mind LOL.
So I added some feathers with hot glue, then I wrapped a bit of gingham ribbon around a small bottle then hot glued it on to the spoon.




I glued a mini tinkerbell charm so it looks like she's been let out the bottle.




I added some more feathers and a bit of ribbon with (all my love) on it.




I added another tinkerbell at the bottom of the bottle,like she has let the other one out.
Next I added a bow to the gingham ribbon below everything.

I do hope you enjoyed this tutorial, as you know I do love doing them.
So thats me for now.
Thank you for stopping by.
Big Hugs & Love.
