This is the layout I did at the crop.
Like Mother, Like Daughter!
I loved using Websters pages and I really want to get some more, I love the new Sweet as Cherry Pie.
I am working on being more creative. I decided to have a go at making a vine of flowers, so I thought I would blog my progress in stages, so here are my first few stages.
STAGE 1 - I pulled out some carnations and leaves on wires and some craft wire.
STAGE 2 - I wound some of the leaves and flowers together, not in any particular way, just how I liked the look of them, then randomly wound 3 pieces of craft wire into the vine.
STAGE3 - I used a pokey tool to wrap the wire round to give it a springy feel.
STAGE 4 - I took a sheet of thin white paper and painted it in adirondack metallic acrylic paint. Once dry I cut it into 1/2 cm strips and soaked each piece in watered down PVA and wrapped it around the wire until it was all covered. I used this instead of wire tape, it felt good to make it myself and was great fun to do.
STAGE 5 - Next I painted over the whole vine leaving out the flowers of course, in the same paint, to cover the bits which the paint missed and to make the leaves the same colour.
Stage 6, I pulled the wire springs out so they were nearly straight, dipped them into the PVA water mix then dipped them into some green flock. I then did this again after the first coat was dry.
This is a very rare photo of my smallest of naughtiest cat Pheobe being held by Vic. So cute and so unusual.
You may well be wondering about the Giraffes and Mystical creatures in the title. Well before we went to bed last night Vic informed me that our cat Rosie was her fav. because " there is something mystical and unicorn-ish about her" I laughed so much. The Giraffes is because Mum and I got Vic a Safari Park Giraffe Experience for her birthday and we are off to that on Wednesday. To say that she is excited would be an understatement. lol.
Well that's it for me today. thanks for reading.
Happy creating. Jay xx
