Tissued Queen

Hello to all I am excited to show you 2 altered art pieces I created which is not my strong point but thought I would have ago as I saw this in the magazine craft stamper.
It involved putting bits and bobs ie, keys hearts etc on to your project then modge podge all over, then using a tissue being careful layer it on crumpling it adding some more modge podge.
let it dry then I covered in white gesso dried that then painted it black and used some gold, silver & red paint.
Well I loved it then added the red Queen and Alice and then some lace.


I then had ago at doing an  ATC which when I put it onto black card made it a little bit bigger.

I would love to see hear what you all think to my attempt of altered art.

Crafting for fun and pleasure

Hello to all my followers, I have been lacking on my blogging these last few weeks only blogged my DT cards, well today's post is to show you some things I have made for a present order and one for fun.
I have been trying hard to sell my cards but have come to the conclusion that what will be will be and if people want my cards they will tell me, I try to make some money back to get more stash but as I am addicted to crafts I don't think I will stop spending lol.
Ok so first pic is a canvas I made for Marks mum for Mothers day, I used a canvase and layered paper on to it as I ain't good at painting.

I used a digi fro bugaboo and then added lace, flowers and cut out mum on the e crafter.
Image coloured in with my spectrum noir pens.

My next is a card made for a workmate for his mum,
we figured out she loves sewing and pink so this is what came out of my head lol.

And finally this card is for fun, I stamped a toread image coloured her in and embossed some vines, its a simple card but lovely In my opinion, The Toreads are from Crafters Companion my fave company ever.

Well that's me for now,  please leave a comment and hope to post some fun things i have done again soon.
Keep crafting
