Ocean Tag

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy crafty place!

This is my first Design Team project of 2015 for Imagine if!
and there is a neat summer giveaway for you to enter!

To go in the draw to win a $20 pack of Beach themed goodies from Imagine if....
To be in to win you must leave a comment here on my blog and also "Like" the Imagine if Facebook page!

I started off gluing the sea shell shapes onto the die cuts from Imagine if
then painted the tag with gesso and a coat of white and sea blue paint to created a swirling and blending of the two to get an ocean colour!

Next I used Mod podge and tissue to get the white foam wave effect, painted my sea horses with a yellow, toned with white and some tissue added for more texture!

Using the Mod Podge I crinkled some fine mesh cloth to the bottom of the tag!
Glued all the bits and pieces on!

I printed the sentiment and glued to scrap cardboard, cut out added it to the tag!
Finally I coloured the edges of all the chipboard and sentiments to highlight them a little, tied some fibres and added an anchor to the tag to finish off!
Lovely Ocean themed tag for summer.

Flowers and Seam Binding

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy crafty place
I am sure you are all back into the swing of things as we are in the second week of 2015!
Time goes so fast.
I wanted to share with you some of the many crafting projects I have been making and hope to inspire you all along the way.
I started playing with scrap papers and Rosette flowers but soon found myself making lots of these gorgeous creations for adding to any craft project.
It was a good time to get some seam binding coloured as well so ive made a vintage collection
and also a shabby chic collection all in pretty packaging!
Along with some crochet pretties

This one is a Cream Jug or Sugar Bowl cover with glass beads!

This doily is going to be used in a journal im thinking!
Thanks for stopping by!
