Today I have a project I made a few weeks ago but forgot to share on my blog. Don’t know why but I was neglecting blogging. Possibly because it’s been so busy, possibly because my mojo was absent for a while and I got out of the habit!
Whatever the reason… I’m back today!
So these twinchies were for a swap and I loved creating them.
There were lots and lots of layers of distress oxides and smooshing and then stamping. Then embossing and embossing and embossing!
I used the lavinia stamps fairy and then alpha stamps for the sentiment on the top.
I finished off with some bling!
Really lovely ethereal background and you can never go wrong with a lavinia silhouette stamp!
The swap theme for this month’s swap is bits and pieces and I decided to just go with stuff that was on the desk to make three coins…
This resulted in an eclectic mix of coins.
This has a fabric background that I sewed before cutting to size and then some random bits from the stash.
This has a decent amount of beads and glitter and lots of resin flowers from Artful Days Goodie boxes.
This is a scrap of painted paper and another painted paper die cut and then a wooden laser cut word I added black gesso to it.
Love how these came together easily and using just bits and pieces off the desk.
Hello! Have another set of coins to share today where I used the time theme.
This time some distress ink backgrounds which I then added some glass bead gel through a stencil. I then added the stamped image and then added a stamped word.
Some fun dimension for these.
Another swap to share… this time some inchies using the following colour palette…
The colour palette reminded me of a sunflower against blue skies.
Here is what I made…
I used blue ink to smoosh the watercolor the inchies in and then stamped using the dark brown archival ink and the Hardwood stamp.
I then added the spotty washi to three of the inchies and strips of the yellow washi to two of the inchies. Into the strips I added the words sun flower.
Then I inked the edge of each inchie and added an embellishment sunflower from the stash. I then arranged them onto the yellow cardstock.
Love this bright and beautiful selection of inchies.
Today I have four coins I made for a swap where the theme was Birds.
I decided to paper piece my birds using some fun papers I had on my desk. The stamp was from a magazine freebie. I stamped the image onto the coins I die cut from mountboard and then again onto four papers twice. Then I had fun cutting them out and piecing them together.
I then stamped the branches and leaves around the birds and gave them feet where they could be seen. I then took some word stamps and stamped them onto the patterned paper and cut them out. I edged each coin and also gave each bird a bit of a shade border.
I also coated each birds head and wings with some Wink of Stella to give them some shimmer.
Love the modern and fun look these coins have.
