Good Morning to you all. I hope everyone is having a good June. Such a shame our weather has not brightened up. Nevermind I have made this bright card for the new challenge starting today at the wonderful Delicious Doodles Challenge. We want you to Use a Charm in your project. I had this cute dolphin charm in my stash and wondered what to team it with. I decided to use two of Delicious Doodles summery images... Beach Huts and Deckchair. I used distress inks to paint them and I used some twine to hold my charm. I used two embossing folders to create my textured matt and layer. I used Crafters Companion chevron 6 by 6 folder and Cuttlebug argyle.
Yay the sun is out this Friday morning and it is time for Team B to inspire you at the Delicious Doodles challenge. this weeks theme is All Creatures Great and Small. I chose a larger creature from Teri's awesome collection of animal images. this image is Tiger.
I printed off my image large enough to sit nicely on an A5 card. I painted with distress inks. I then embossed a pie e of white card with a leaf stencil. I painted some of the leaves. I mounted onto card and added a sentiment.
Hi I am excited to share my bracelet with you for the Beading Friends Forever Challenge tutorial. the tutorial is In the Garden Wrap Bracelet. it says it takes 6-8 hours but I did mine in about 2-3 Hours.
I used brown leather a button from my stash three colours of s-lon some bronze miyuki cube beads and som 8/0 seed beads. I slightly altered the Bollywood style macramé by using less seed beads than the tutorial.
Hello the sun is fairly reluctant to committ to staying out in London today. I decided to try Macramé this afternoon. OMG love this technique it is very relaxing and great effects can be made. This is a simple bracelet for the multistrand component of the Beading Friends Forever challenge.
I used blue leather cord, white S-lon , 6/0 and 8/0 seed beads from my stash and the button from my stash. I do not have a thread zapper yet so I used a lighter. I am waiting for a few supplies from the sponsor Beads Direct so I can do the tutorial part of the challenge.
Hello where did that sunshine disappear too. We had a trip to The British Museum today to see Mummy's and Roman Coins. There is so much inspiration in there. I exchanged some club card vouchers so we popped into ASK by Tower Bridge on the way home Yummy!
So today sees a new challenge at Beading Friends Forever. I love this jewellery challenge. this quick but very elegant necklace has been made for the multistrand part of the challenge. I have just ordered some leather and s-lon for the tutorial part of the challenge so I will share at a later date with you all. I ordered from the sponsors Beads Direct who are a great company for all your beading needs.
This necklace was made using some beads from Beaders Companion that I have had in my stash for ages. I also used some Tibetan beads from my stash. I used two lengths of Beadalon, two crimps and a toggle clasp. I simply strung the beads and attached to toggle with the clasp. When on the neck this sits at two levels and looks really elegant.
