February colour picks

Hey, hey! I'm back with a little something I made for Prima's February Product Pick / colour challenge. I'm loving those gorgeous spring colours...

And here's my offering, ableit with slightly more grungier tones ;) This is one beefy card!

The heart is polystyrene, which I cut in half, wrapped in mesh material and painted.

^ Some details. I cut a hole to form a recess and filled with a couple of Prima mechanicals, prettied up with some sequins.

The large flower has a Junkyard findings stud and an old cog which was painted with mica powder as it's centre.

And that's me done for today. See you later!

The Loudest Mind...

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a layout I created for Prima's February edition of the Build A Page sketch challenge.

The page turned out more sprawling than I'd first planned but I'm still relatively content with the finished article...

Gesso textured by running a comb through it then coloured with inks and mica powders.

Notice the silver birch tree bark, which I found hanging loose. Of course I had to have it - this stuff is beyond awesome! There is a lightbulb theme going on here, some Ingvild Bolme Junkyard findings and mini bulbs which are cut from a 12x12 sheet (Prima Craftsman I believe).

I added in yet more texture via mulberry tissue paper, which I've glued in place, painted and added some stamping details.

Pieces of an old camera film negative double up as a border and tiny die cut tag!

See you later!
