Some gifts and a step by step:)

I have been making somethings for friends and family lately.  The first is for our friends baby girl Aylah.  We gave it to her at her Naming Ceremony:)

Some closies:)  Bird cage from The Chip Chop Shop.

A card I made for Mum for her birthday last week.......new Gabrielle from Bo Bunny:)

Lastly a canvas I made for another friend that just had their baby girl nearly 2 weeks ago:)


I thought I would photograph this one as I went for you all to see how I created it.  Excuse the dodgy pics but my light in my scrap room isn't the best!

1. I used gesso on my background and then I stamped randomly with a music sheet stamp.

2. I misted over the shape of a chipboard butterfly.

3. I also did this randomly over the canvas and with the excess mist I dripped and flicked it over it aswell.

3. I then sprayed more mist and let it drip down aswell as some iron inks splattered onto the canvas.

4. I now started to add texture.  A bit of muslin wrap and gesso and then misted the butterfly shape over the top again.

5. Adding more of number 4 up the top aswell.

6. On goes the strips of material and doily's.

7. Now tearing and folding up the edges of my patterned paper....(new Prima....yummo) I added these pieces around the material.

8. I painted some old chippie letters I had white and adhered to the canvas.  This is now also the point where I started to add my flowers:)

9. Adding more flowers.....I had to have a bit of a fiddle with this bit as they just weren't coming together....eventually I got them all in a place that I was happy with!  I also added a chippie butterfly and a new Prima butterfly.

10. Even more flowers.

11. Lastly I added some tiny paper butterflies with some bling and I traced my finger over most of the flowers with gesso to give it a vintage look:)

So there you have it....I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial:)  I am really thinking about trying to sell something like this at the markets.....yeah, maybe in my spare time....lol!!!!!

Thanks for dropping by again, I hope you all have a beautiful day tomorrow and I hope you come back to visit me on Friday for the big COLOR ROOM BLOG HOP!!!!!!!

Take care xo
