J..acob

I love making things for my grandson Jacob because he is such a little sweetie.  So when I saw this letter J to be altered I couldnt resist it.



I decided to paint the whole thing with a thin layer of gesso to give it a base.  I then sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer in Peacock Green with a little Glimmer Mist in Iridecant Gold.

I wanted it letter to reflect my grandson and what he likes so I kept it simple by adding stickers from Echo Park - Little Boy element stickers & Life is Good alpha sticker sheets.

My grandson is like a little angel to me so I attached little angel wings to the back to respresent that.

I hope he likes it!!!

Nana


I have playing around with the idea of putting some layouts on stretched canvas for a while and this is my second attempt.  The first being Jacob's vRoom.

I painted the canvas with Plaid Decopage Finish in 2052 Sepia and let it dry and framed the photograph with a sticker I got in a kit from QVC ages ago.  I found some matching paper from the MME Laundry Line stack and adhered this to the left hand side of the canvas and layered the framed photo over the top.

I also used alphas and quote card from MME (unintentionally)  I finished the layout off by adding 2 flowers and a gem which I got from my local craft shop (Papercuts-Whitley Bay).

I am looking forward to finding a place to hang this on the wall.

Jacob's vRoom Canvas/Scrap 365

I got the very eagerly awaited awatied 1st issue of Scrap 365 yesterday (I would have had it earlier but I've been poorly, sob sob.)   Within the first few pages I was inspired.

On page 6 there is an article called 'Splish Splosh' by designer Mahlin Wiggur.  As soon as I saw it I thought oooh-I like it, I like it.  I have been meaning to put some layouts on stretched canvases for a while and decided to do it for this crafty effort.






My grandson loves anything with wheels on, especially cars and bikes so I decided to use this photo for his door plaque.  I got out my shimmer sprays and paints and had a good time.  I also used Snowtex for a bit of texture under the title.

I really enjoyed making this for my grandson, I sure hope he likes it.

Name Cards for Work


I have been lucky enough to start a new job which I am enjoying and team I work on are brilliant fun and keep me laughing.

I asked if they would like me to make some name tags but to use 'nicknames' and they said yes.  These are the 1st batch and I have 5 more to make.  They have been received well (especially by the girls).  See below for individual photos.











I also made the following name tag, but as Joakim was leaving for another job I decided to make one with his proper name. 



I will add the 5 other tags (which included one for me) as soon as they are done!  Thanks for looking!

Blooming Lovely


I havnt been scrapping much of late, mainly down to the fact that I started a new job a few months back and I have been working totally different hours and just seem to have gotten out of my normal rhythmn.

I bought some new acrylic stamps from my local craft store (Papercuts Ltd) which were Stampendous stamps which have individual petals so you can build different flowers and the Paisley stamps by Smoochie Manoochie(Tracey Grundy) I have 3 sets so far and I love them.

I didnt use a sketch for this layout but just quickly put it together and went with what felt right.
