Petal Palette art journal piece

I made an art journal page and used my current favourite and go to stamp set for the feature… Petal Palette.

I made this with the video running so you can check out the progress here.

Love the layers, textures and the gentle images I used with this warm colour palette.

And that sentiment spoke to me perfectly at that moment… always a good way to choose your title for your piece!

Hope you like it. It was originally destined for a swap but then I realised that I had misunderstood the rules and that blue needed to be in the page…. ooops…. ah well a thoroughly enjoyable piece to make regardless. Once I realised that I found the perfect place to put the page in my journal… which covered some stamping I wasn’t keen on!

Happy crafting!

Shimmer watercolour cards

I bought some shimmer watercolours a little while ago and the first thing I did was make a couple of backgrounds… and finally I got round to making them into cards.

The top one I used some Tim Holtz stamps and also flicked a bit of the art alchemy sparks paint on for dimension and added sparkle. I mounted it onto a blue textured card and with a purple organza ribbon.

The next one I used the Petal Palette leaves stamp and kept it quite simple with some string and a brown background.

Love these shimmery paints and can imagine using them a lot!

Happy crafting!
