I just want to share a few of my projects with you all
First is my stack of letters keepsake.....

Sewing themed card for all occasions 
An altered cigar box
A mini journal using a to roll for the cover....thank you Ruth for the inspiration 
A lovely photo wallet

Mixed media canvas

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place 

Wow life has been so full on the last year with classes going so well and the added challenge with surgery.

One thing that stays the same is my love of creating beautiful projects 
Today I'm sharing with you this mixed media canvas created using stencils, texture paste, crackle,chipboard, some pieces I made, flat back pearls, microbeads.....sounds like lots of product! 
Ok so next a couple of layers of gesso when dry I used mica powders spritzed with water to add some 
Colour to the piece 
A touch of pink to add dimension and white gesso to highlight 

I was very pleased with how my canvas turned out!

Thank you for stopping by

Shabby/Vintage Tag

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place!
It has been a very busy time here on Mystical Touch with classes taking off and I am so very happy being able to create and inspire with a wide group of people..
Classes are from card making, layouts, mini albums, journals and much much more so pop on over for a look and join in!
This weeks project to share with you (found a similar idea on pinterest).....

First I cut out 3 in craft card, one in peach card and one using Graphic45 Gilded Lily....
then I glued the peach onto the craft card!
Next I stressed up the edges on final tag and rectangle measuring 5 1/2cm x 3 1/2cm from same G45 collection to match everything up and just because I loveeee these designs! 
glue these into place using main photo as a guide...

Frey up a small piece of gauze or muslin to age it and glue this down into place....

cut out four small hearts and stitch down the centre
 then adhere and fold up to give dimension!

Using seam binding or ribbon make a lovely bow (I used my glue gun for this)
glue on and add a pretty embellishment to finish off!

Layer on some matching peach lace and a pretty dangle lace...
I then stamped love, cut out the letters and glued into place...
tied on a pretty trim to the top of tag.....what a lovely idea instead of a card...
I hope you have enjoyed my little project....
