Enjoy the few swaps from this month, several members were
on holiday and obviously did not take part.
I painted the 5" square box with black gesso, glued all the buttons
on top of the lid, painted again with black gesso.
The edges and sides are decorated I then added
a Tim Holtz layered butterfly.
For the butterfly body I used tyvek (painted) to form a paper
bead around a spoon, then heated
it to make it curl with a touch of Treasure Gold.
There are a few embossed butterflies inside.
Pamela created this mini canvas and easel.
Here you can see the detail of the flowers, fabulous!
Pamela used a memory box die to cut this butterfly
from a tin can and filled with tissue and glossy accents.
Annie covered this heart box with stamped
tissue. Painted with crackle paint. Smashing.
Take a look at the plain Kraft carrier that Annie
decorated with her favourite flower stamp, painted
and covered with gel medium.
Nothing to show for next months swap as I forgot to provide them but will
be taking a few items along at our August meeting.
Will be back to share photos of a great workshop with fellow
Cardmaking Paradise forum members last month. Until next time...
