Distraction, ahhhh :)
This is an older project...January...but I forgot to post it. Eat cake graphics and Copic coloured, I made a snowball fight revival kit for a thank you gift for my husband to give. If you look closely you will see a bit of sky colour...that is Thomas' contribution...artist in training, lol.
This project I fell in love with in the store....sigh...I love Batik and turquoise....and the two together....bliss! Ha, So I and my sewing machine embarked on a project together. Now, I don't get along with my sewing machine as a rule....I get frustrated and it makes funny noises....GRRRR, so this Project from November was finished today and my machine is going back for repairs at Wool'n'Things...AGAIN!!!
This is a quick shot of the inside :) More sewing adventures to come as I try my hand at a simple quilt for Ben ;)
This is Ben's first snow angel, he asked me to share it, lol...we have had such mild weather that we are outside every day playing on the pond.
A few of my homemade flowers from coffee filters (not the brown one) For directions follow my sidebar link to the fabulously artsy blog and check out her TV series! I will teach these soon at our classes :) The box is an old slide box I rescued from work and refurbished with the Magnifique paper from CTMH and the 'a little thanks' stamp set.
And then filled with goodies ;)
Ben and Tom's snowmen....which promptly melted the next day in the rain....and Pal ate the nose from Tom's :o...wish I could have captured that on film, lmbo!
This is Tom blocking the camera so I can't show you the rest, lol....I will be back after I distract him!
And for a little trick that only CTMH blocks will give you....the background square is a 3x3 acrylic block pressed into the ink pad and applied to paper. The stamp is.....hmmmm, I don't remember. If you know, let me know :)
I used the Sweetheart paper from CTMH and the Bonus Technique from Technique Junkies newsletter and created this loverly surprise for my mother. We have the lovely experience of working together and I was able to slip the gift into her med cart at work yesterday, teehee, what a lovely surprise! The stamps used were CTMH's Heartthrob.I morphed the technique a bit, as I tucked acetate behind the window to hold the hearts in. This box is the perfect size for little votive candles/cookies/any tiny gift :)
