I have this die called "tipsy heart" that comes in 3 sizes so I cut out the big one and the smallest one and painted them with red acrylic paint. I put a small piece of text on, added the small heart on pop dots along with a red rose sticker from Paperchase! I added a few beads in glossy accents and then some of that gold foil stuff that sticks to glue pen, not sure of it's proper name (and it looks black in the photo)! Finally added an eyelet and some red ribbon and there is my tag...

Now let me just tell you about a teeny challengette I am doing with 3 friends. We all scrap together and are feeling we need to be stretched a bit so we have decided to swap 4 photos of the snow each, making 16 in total. Then we are each going to do with them whatever we like...hence my "Snow" book cover. I can't wait to see what we all come up with when we are each given the same pics to work with. I think mine might be a hybrid of scrapping and a bit altered-y....

Now those of you that know me I hope you were sitting down when you saw this picture! If you know me a bit, you have probably noticed that I like to use lots of colour in my craft. If you know me lots and have been to my house and seen my bright orange dining room or my cerise pink bedroom, you will know that neutral just doesn't feature in my life! But whilst I was moochibng about the blogs the other day I came across the LTDO Challenge which this week is WHITE!!!!.
Well I was so inspired by what I had seen that I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go myself!
So this is the cover for a mini album of snow pictures that I am doing...(more about that another day cos it's a kind of challenge)
I have put both these pics in so you can see the details a bit better. I made some fabric paper that I covered the mountboard in and then added various chipboard letters, recovered and painted with glitter. The snowflakes are sissix die cut ones cut from various papers and then I just blinged it up a bit!
I quite enjoyed my first adventure into "non-colour"!

It started life as a ply wood shape that I painted with gesso and then blue acrylic paint. I did it quite thick as I like the different shades it goes and it gives a bit of subtle texture too. Not sure where I found the quote but I printed it out and just coloured it with pastels. Burn is into all things "angel" so I thought it was rather suitable. The image was from t'internet and I stamped the wings on vellum with Brilliance ink.
Sorry it was so late Burn but I hope you liked it!

So my lace is vintage, the pansies are stamped and water coloured and they have stickles in the centre! I found this quite tricky as I don't really "do" lace and to get glitter in as well was a toughie.

Another snow day today so more craft I feel!
Monday, 11 January 2010
Needless to say I have done diddley squat of my own as I have been supporting them and making sure they didn't pinch my best embellies! Not only that but my Mum decided to get in on the act and I spent the day teaching her how to papercraft too with her own snowy book!
Well the buses seem to be running for eldest to get in tomorrow for her Biology AS, No 2 daughter is off AGAIN tomorrow and we await with bated breath the fate of Jasper and Eliza! I am sure I will have to go in tomorrow tho as the rest of the staff have been in today clearing snow I think. Mind you I am beginning to run out of steam craftwise.......!

Right off to finish these snowy books with the others. I feel I deserve a rest now as I yomped about 3 miles this morning to the supermarket and back with the girls. We carried 44kg of shopping back between us!!!!

Now I am doing a different one in purple and black and I have found some Tea Cosy patterns too.......
Still snowy here and I have been knitting so later on I will post pics. Have to do it later as the children are fighting over the computer so they can all do homework set to keep them busy!!
