Melt Art


I had a play with the melt pot last weekend, haven't used it in wanted to try out some new things. I had a silicon alphabet mould I hadn't used yet - so I made some letters with various UTEE's and put glitter and gilding flakes and stuff in the mould, and I made a little mini canvas with some of the letters. The background being Dylusions, a bit of detail sparkle medium and black in round the edge. I made some other stuff too but they might show up on future projects ;)

In other is a card I made! Simply it's sparkle medium through a stencil on to black glossy card, and a Craftwork cards greeting.

Just realised there was no stamping involved on either of these either....

Just One More Thing....

Well let me tell you I can't explain how my brain works.....but anyhoooo after I made my Q&L page earlier I'd used the opposite page to spray the little man and it had left a brilliant outline....all I could think of was the chalk outlines on police shows and of course that led me to Columbo, so I created a Columbo page!!

In addition to the Dylusions that were already on the page, I added some pastels and some washi tape, and just in case you were wondering the blood is liquid pearls. I cut out a picture of the man himself and mod podged him down and wrote his famous catchphrase at the top.

Happy Valentine's

Here is the card I made for Valentine's Day this year.

I got a set of alphabet masks, so I used those to create the love, and I used a heart mask in place of the V as well, using distress ink over the top of the masks. I stamped a heart in the background which was a free one from Craft Stamper. I used part of a stencil to create the X's with some acrylic paint and I added a few fibres of Hessian and glued it down with a gem on top. Of course inked round the edge as well :) Oh and there's a little silver gloss paint on there two, looks white on the photo though!


Hello, here is the next page I've made for the quotes and lyrics challenge, this time the words are strong or miss. I searched and found a limerick by Edward Lear that features strong, and even better a little craft link as it's strong glue!

I painted the background with paper artsy fresco paints, I cut out the man and horse on the Cricut, I sprayed them with Dylusions sprays and stuck them on with mod podge. I then drew on the border and the rhyme and finally added silver gloss paint around the edge

Birdies and cards

Here is a little clip of a Blue Tit and Great Tit from bird cam today......I love it because the Blue Tit is right up close to the camera,

Also here are a couple of cards I made.......

Obviously the photo is the main part of this first one, but I stamped around the edge to age it a little and stamped the wanted letters as well

This Octopus stamp is from an Oxford Impressions set, and of course I added googly eyes, plus a craftwork cards greeting and some painted on sea, I think that was a Dylusional background I stamped the Octopus on, I sometimes forget what I've done if I wait too long before posting!!
