Wooden Heart


My project this time for Altered Pages is a wooden shape.I chose a  heart The wooden heart has a hole in the top for hanging. .I chose an image and cut around it to fit the heart The image was one of my own I used Mod Podge to adhere the image and then dried it. I then took the heart and blended ink around the sides so it blended in with the image. I then chose some flowers from flower stash and some leaves and arranged them around one side of the heart. When I was happy I adhered each one with hot glue to ensure they stayed.
On the reverse side I simply added another floral arrangement with hot glue. To finish I added some course twine.




Altered Pages are partnering Foundations D├ęcor products! This month and wow there are some amazing  design team makes to really  inspire you. Check out the Altered Pages Blog every day to see much much more

ACEO PLAY

Wittled my crafting down to mainly small art. I like working tiny. If you look at the flowers on the first one you can see how tiny the fussy cutting was for this one. I love it though, so relaxing and so good for me.
These three are Acrylic paint, Pen work and collage.

Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend.

Fake Washi tape

Watching tv last night I needed to do some kind of creating so I made lots of fake washi tapes. Below is a picture of just a few but you get the idea ?

What I used
Masking tape
Baking parchment to stick the tape to.
Marker pens,
coloured inks,
Stazon inks
stamps.

the red one on the left of pic shows how I store them, rolled up and paper clipped and the pink lid is from the box I keep them in


You could take it lots further by adding glitters, paint, paint pens, Gelli plate prints etc which I may do next time. Love making them.

Steampunk and Tea

Gosh its storming like crazy outside so thought I would come and post my finished journal page.


Steampunk journal page created using wet teabag staining on the base and on a half doily. I Stamped the beautiful image from the set at Altered Pages steampunk woman set. I got this beautiful set from my good friend in the USA Susan Guzy. I am totally in love with this set. I stamped with Stazon onto tissue and used Glue stick to secure. The other stamped patterns are from home made tissue tape I made ages ago and torn into pieces. Then I added some washitape edges and colour with pens here and there. The cog gears are die cuts and have been painted gold with highlights from pens. 

Thanks again to Susan and to the lovely team over at Altered Pages

I would also like to enter this in the Art Journal Journey challenge this week which is Elegance and grunge

Floral canvas

Before I was ill I created this 8 x 8 canvas for Altered Pages. This month at Altered Pages the theme is flowers. I used the gorgeous printable florals and teacups images from Altered pages , so beautifully vintage. I chose Pink and gold as my colour  base and began by using   White Gesso to prime, then added vintage book papers, scraps of other papers from my stash (waste not want not !  )
I painted the canvas in pale pinks and white acrylic paints. I then painted the border in a metallic gold (you can not tell its metallic in the image )  I collaged the images and one or two scraps onto the canvas and then I used various pens to enhance colours, details and shadows.

I hope you will pop by Altered Pages and see all the fabulous products they have plus all the great stuff happening on the blog



This edit is for the sadness and devastation we feel for everyone in Manchester today. Prayers and love

Out of action

Ok so I am currently prisoner in my bedroom. I have had a severe bout of arthritic spasms in my spine, resulting in hospital time, Morphine (which was the worst possible things as I have discovered my body reacts terribly to morphine and I ended up being even more unwell ) Finally I am home and confined to my bedroom until I am able to walk without pain again. This week has been hell. I am today finally able to sit in a position to use my computer but I am totally missing crafting.
I have been unable to visit my mam though and that is also killing me. My poor hubby does not know whats hit him. I think he finally knows how much I normally do around the house lol as he is doing it.

Anyway in between resting I at least now can be here blog hopping etc. So I shall hopefully catch up with everyone soon.


Hugs June x

Cat woman

Mixed media painting atc. Using various acrylics  and pens. I named her cat woman of course.



Catwoman Lyrics by Shakespear's sister


i was floating around the atmosphere
i liked what i saw so i came down here
i was looking for something, looking for something
and the sky came up to meet with me
magnetic forces greeted me
i was looking for something, looking for something
i'm a superhuman 3-d baby
a hollywood brainchild to drive you crazy
and i'm coming your way real soon
i'm the catwoman from the moon
now peace and love like a willow tree
have hung their heads and wept for me
and i'm looking for someone, looking for someone
so earth, don't you betray me
i'm willing to have your baby
are you looking for someone, looking for someone
i'm a superhuman 3-d baby
a hollywood brainchild to drive you crazy
and i'm coming your way real soon
i'm the catwoman from the moon
