Teddy Bears

Hiya
I made this for a friend who is obsessed  loves teddies :)

Another kind friend gave me the lovely wooden stamp.

I added some subtle colour, and a few bits of decoupage
(I made my own by stamping extra and fussy cutting)

I Hope you enjoyed your weekend

Reflections

I thought I'd shared this already,
but I can't find it, so here goes....

This was a class I did on the "Reflection" or "Mirror" technique

You can use lots of things to stamp on to make the mirror image,
here's a few:
stamp-a-ma-jig; actetate; clear packaging; the back of a clear stamp (flat side);
acrylic block.
My favourite is the stamp-a-ma-jig



Use sticky notes to create masks


note the goose facing the other way.....done by using s-a-m-j and filling 
in any missing detail with a fine liner

Use scrap paper to mask off areas for landscapes etc



It's a bit faint but the trees are 'reflected' in the 'water'


Lastly in an actual mirror
(you may have seen this image a while back)


They really enjoyed experimenting with the various methods,
hope you enjoyed looking too!

Swaps in June

Hello

I found some photos I've not shared yet....just shows how quickly this year has gone by,
and also how my blogging has slipped somewhat!

These go back to May or June.....swaps received from a training day,
apologies if there's any names missing :(


sorry lost the name








Have a good day,
there'll be more tomorrow!

September Rudolph Day

Well, can you believe it's the 25th of the month again already?!
Nope, neither can I, but here goes with some more xmas cards
to celebrate the Rudolph Day Challenge....



I really should have added a strip of something on the diagonal line of the pine one.....

More of that Embossing Paste!


Morning!
not the greatest start for me......
you know when you want to just do something quick and move on....
nah......my usual photo editing package has changed their terms,
and I 'ain't paying!

so, whilst I need time to get to grips, this will have to do!

These are my samples.....

so if you have any questions, please ask......

meantime it's just picture heavy, but you get the drift......or the paste...

here's some of the class creations.....



I hope you enjoyed looking.

A p.s. to yesterday's post that I wrote so badly, I confooosed some....
The reference to me and him, and himself  was to my Alan, and not Dad.
Just so you know it's him indoors thats the acrobat at the bottom of the stairs.
(If I've just confused you more, just ignore me, I'm waffling :)

Have a Super Sunday
