Faith Pocock - Easter Bunny

               Hello!  Today I have another project from Faith Pocock Studio just in time to hold all your                                                                              sweet Easter treats

This little fella comes in 6 pieces. I think it would suit even the younger crafter if they wanted to make something for the Easter Bunny to drop his/her eggs into!

I wasn't sure how many packets of eggs to buy... to my delight I had plenty left over after using less than one bag so I could sample the eggs as I made the project!

I covered with neutral woodgrain paper

Glued the head on and filled the eye socket with liquid pearls

I covered the bottom with green paper to reflect grass

I filled in ears, nose and mouth with stickles. These held up well compared to the liquid pearls which seemed to deflate and disappear. So I added a pearl drop in the socket. Cut some whiskers from an old paint brush, added a few flowers and bow, and lastly added any left over eggs I hadn't managed to stuff in my mouth! LOL

Bee Arty - Tags

                                                                   Hello Bee Arty Fans

Who doesnt love tags! Today I am sharing two grungy tags made from a couple different collections but they go together do well

Firstly I had some thick cardboard laying around which I used paper from King of the cave collection. 

I tore up the paper and distressed the edges before gluing down

Next I fussy cut the bees and butterflies from Three Six Five paper collection
Coloured them in using copics to match the background paper

Finally I glued them down. To add a bit of more interest to each tag I had some material laying around, so frayed the edges and added these to the tags.
These would make a wonderful addition to any special present instead of a card!

Until next time
Happy crafting

Faith Pocock - Frame Drawer


   Morning crafty friends, today I have another  Faith Pocock Studio project to share with you

As always - the trick to Faiths projects is unpackage them and lay them out flat, that way if there are a lot of pieces then you get an idea where they go

I started assembling and gluing the drawers first

Then did the same with the main body of the project

At this stage I always walk away. I personally like to let the glue set overnight to save myself any frustration. 
Next day I painted drawers, main body and frame in watered down black paint

After all the prep, the fun begins. Choosing paper.... for this project I picked out Stamperia - Mechanical Fantasy.
Tracing and measuring around each area I wanted to cover

For the sides I found a round circle punch the easiest to get a nice round circle

Distress all the edges for that grungy look

Setting everything aside I worked on the frame

TIP: when gluing the boarder of the frame down, only glue the edges like photo, that way you can change the image/photo whenever you want to update it

Insert picture

Attach frame to main body and insert drawers
TIP: if you find drawers are a bit frim to open, just lightly sand the sides and top edge, then rub candle wax over surface

I LOVE anything to do with storage - you can never have enough of it. This now sits on my craft desk full of flowers. 
Until next time.. happy crafting

Bee Arty - Own Your Magic

                                                                      Hello Bee Arty Fans

Loved using and layering my last card I made from Follow your Dreams collection, so deciced to play and do another one

I used the same background paper I used several posts ago to show that you can make more than one card with a different look, from paper Embrace from Untangle collection .

I also cut out different sized flowers to colour with copics from Follow your Dreams collection 

My favorite thing to do... layering to make them POP

Glued all down on a couple matching background cardstock

Have to love these type of cards... quick, simple and satisfying ...Until next time..
Happy crafting
