Evening fellow crafty people,
What a gorgeous day it has been, far too nice to be indoors. We've been enjoying the sun in local park today, but I have been up to my crafty lair for a bit this evening.
So what's on my desk this week? Lets have a look.
Crikey it is messy. Well this week I've been making a birthday present for my husband. I've made gelli plate mono prints using Clarity Stencil seed head designs. You can see one of my attempts in the right hand corner. I was cutting out frame for them which you can see on the desk in the middle. There is also a little peak of the card I'm making for my husband (see finished result below).
New toy alert .. my Brother scanNcut! I was trying to cut my frames out on it but not very sucessfully. I got the the sizes completely wrong
So I had to resort to my trusty Silhouette. You can see above a birthday card I've made for friend using a Clarity stencil and grunge paste (it was one of Barbara Gray's blog tutorials).
This is my husband's birthday card. I used a Sheena Douglass stamp which I painted using H20s on kraft card. The porthole and sentiment are from the Silhouette store. I have since added a 'we' to the love you bit if you think the sentiment doesn't read right! I lost the 'I' somewhere along the line. Probably stuck to the bottom of my shoe. Below is the finished birthday present. It was an idea I got from the Silhouette blog; I've put my husband's favourite Beatles song lyrics in vinyl onto the prints. I hope he likes it.
One last thing I'd like to share. Last week at school it was mad as all my students rushed to complete their GCSE and A level coursework. It was an exhausting week but look what I found on my school work desk on Friday. Aren't they lovely and it makes all worthwhile.
Have a great week and please leave a comment if you pop by.
Love Ela xx
