that I’ve got several new bird items in my Etsy shop!
Over on Craft Gossip I’ve shared a product review for some new items from Imagine Crafts and I wanted to share that project along with some instructions and step by step photos of how I made my project.
I started out using Black and Brown Staz On ink pads to stamp my bird, egg and nest onto clear acetate. I turned the acetate over and used the new Staz On Studio Glazes (in Emerald City, St. Valentine and Cotton White) to color my images. After letting the glaze dry it becomes shiny and a little transparent and on a clear service it gives an amazing stained glass effect! If you color outside of the edges you can push the glaze back using the sponge tip tools , these tools also work well for swirling colors, like I did with the blue and white on the egg. Next I attached my stamped acetate to a piece of sticky back canvas paper and cardstock using brads.
Next onto a canvas board I swiped streaks using the Blue Hawaii Staz On Midi ink pad and Broze Delicata Ink and then using one of the Palette knife tools I spread streaks of Bronze Metallic Creative Medium. After that dried I also sprayed some white Irresisitable ink spray.
Lastly I used Black Staz On to stamp my quote for Emily Dickinson onto canvas paper and used the Black Radiant Neon Amplify to go over the large letter H. Amplify comes in bright neon colors as well as black and white and when heated with a heat tool it puffs up for texture and dimension. Then I adhered my words to my canvas and was done. I love how it turned out!
I just did a review over on Craft Gossip using the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing material which allows you to cut out fabric with a Silhouette die cutting machine. I was amazed at how clean it cut! For my project I cut out some banners, a bird and the word “happy” and ironed them onto some unbleached muslin, sewed on some buttons, added some ribbon knots and put it in a wooden embroidery hoop. I love my blue bird of happiness wall hanging, I think it’s adorable!
that my next stamping card class at the Raintree Gallery in Versailles KY is coming up on Sat Feb 9th from 10-12 am. Cost is $15 for 4 cards. Bring scissors, adhesive and a bone folder, all other supplies are provided. Call the gallery at (859) 873-8822 to sign up.
Here’s one of the cards we’ll be making:
I got out my bees wax last week and made some encaustic collages.
The first is on a small 3×3 canvas with a blue bird and cage on vintage music sheet paper and a quote from William Blake. I coated the entire front with melted wax and then wrapped the edges with ribbon and added a vintage wooden game piece.
This next one I wanted to look like a page from a naturalists notebook. It’s a small canvas board on top of a larger canvas board, both covered in wax. The quote is on fabric and I added some faux grass for the nest, some scrabble tiles, part of a wooden measuring stick and ink pen nib.
