Mini Me

Our new little Grandson looks so like his Daddy! Jeff was cuddling him and playing with his hair, grooming it to "daddy style" !

I used the September sketch at 'Stuck?!' September 1st.
I am also joining The Frosted Designs Friday challenge, '3 x 3' (hearts, chevrons, arrows)

5 Days Young

My first layout of my gorgeous new Grandson!! Such a wee treasure!!
It is a quick layout because of things being really busy at the moment and also, these Kaisercraft papers (that I have had sitting for months waiting!) dont need too much extra.

I have used the sketch from September Week1 at Let's Get Sketchy
And Frosted Designs latest Fabulous Friday challenge is to use numbers.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Frame It with Spellbinders Lacy Die Set

I have had a very busy and wonderful family weekend, so this post is a little late.

Below are my last 2 projects, for Scottie Crafts, using the Spellbinders gorgeous Lacy Die Set.

First up, is a wee 6"x 6" layout, of my little cutie granddaughter, in a decorated  wooden frame. 

To make the wee layout:
Cut a piece of cardstock to about 7x7 and layer edge die cuts, punched border strips, ripped strips and laces (dye with TH Distress Stains or Inks or other sprays) etc. .

To soften and give a more shabby chic feel, I sprayed with Dylusions White Linen and wiped across with a paper towel, then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist - Interference Red to give a pink shimmer.

Cut to 6x6".
Cut a photo with one of the Lacy Heart dies. I then matted mine with a lace doily, a Spellbinders scallop circle die and some muslin.
Embellish with some flowers, pearl sprays etc.

To decorate the frame:
Paint with Gesso.
Using One of the Spellbinders Lacy Hearts combos, diecut 3 hearts and then cut them in half.

Paint over the whole frame with a liberal amount of TH Crackle Paint, Tattered Rose. Dry
Then Spray with Perfect Pearls Mist, Turquoise and Perfect Pearls Mist, Interference Red.

Add more pattern and texture with a mask and a Gel medium ( Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gloss multi-medium works well).
When it is clear and touch dry, brush over with matching Perfect Pearl powders.

A couple of close-ups:

More details of products etc are on the Scottie Crafts blog

And my second project: 
A Baby card (for a very special little one!!)
