Getting Ready for Halloween...

Just wanting to share my 4" cube with you all.
It can be purchased from Fernli Designs and although it arrives flat, it is very simple to assemble with a bit of glue.

The backing papers and labels are from a pad and some labels I rubber stamped.The embellishments are dies cuts and other Halloween pieces are from my stash...
Do drop by Fernli Design..not just for the cube, but to have a lookie at their other goodies..well worth a look...

If the crown fits......

Time again for another challenge over at
More Mixed Media.....
As always the theme is Anything Goes..but with the option of a twist and the twist this month is "Brown"
For my design team project I have created a page from my circle board book, the pages are made from MDF, so they are nice and sturdy.

I gessoed the page, then covered it with backing paper. I layered up the photo and added the crown.
I added 2 strips of vintage lace to the page and then added a die cut to lay behind the photo.
The photo was then added to the page along with a few flowers and then the sentiment.
To finish I flicked some diluted white acrylic paint over the whole page.

I do hope you can find time to pop over and join in with our challenge this month...remember there is a prize on offer too..some beautiful papers designed  by our Boss Lady Lozzy.

Altered Dominoes

Good Morning...hope you are enjoying the cooler weather..I am that's for sure.
Not back in to full swing re my crafting, due to health reasons..but I am managing some as I would go stir crazy if I didn't ,lol...

The September Challenge has just started over at
Rhedd's Creative Spirit
As always there is no theme..but it is an altered art/mixed media blog and strictly no "papercrafts"

My design team project this month are some altered dominoes...I have so many stamps and I wanted to use a few of them to decorate my dominoes. So I had a look through my vintage style ones and selected a few that I knew would work for the size of the domino.

I removed the spinner from under the domino..the cleaned and dried each one thoroughly.
I wanted to keep the colour of the domino blank, so no other preparation for them was needed.
I stamped my images using black Stazon Ink.
To colour them I actually painted them, using LuminArt Twinkling H2O paints...they gave a nice shimmer to the images.
I left them overnight to dry and the I sealed each domino with 2 coats of spray and seal gloss medium....finally adding a bale to each one so they can be used for a necklace.
