Altered Bottles Mixed Media Style

Hey there crafty peeps and welcome to this weeks post for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.  Today I have couple of altered bottles to share with you all.  I have been bitten by the mixed media bug and have been really enjoying  getting my hands dirty!!

I first gave my two bottles  generous coats of black gesso and then set them aside to dry. I have used quite a few of the metal filigrees, resin pieces and cabachons to decorate my bottles with.  Once the black gesso was dry I began to stick everything down the E6000 and then added another layer of black gesso.When this was all dry, I dry brushed it all with some white gesso and then grabbed some of my favourite Lindy's sprays and began spraying!!

Below are a few process pics of both bottles and also the more glamourous shots...

Shabby chic Altered Art Easel

Hey there crafters, welcome to my post for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.  Today I have another altered art easel to share with you all.  However, this time I have altered it using the Prima Marketing Debutante paper collection to create a unique piece of wall art complete with places to put a couple of little photos.



I received these Prima papers from Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd sometime last year and I loved them so much I just had to hoard them...that is till now.   They have gone perfectly with this project.  I don't have a great deal of process photo's as the project worked up rather quickly.  I did give the wooden palette a couple of coats of white gesso.  I traced the palette shape and then distressed all the edges and then inked them up with some Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.


I have added some Cotton Candy Pink Lindy Stamp Gang Spray and some stencilling with Art Basics Modelling Paste - Opaque Matt

Once the modelling past was dry I adhered the paper to the palette base and then the began layering up all the lovely embellies...

and there you have it!! so here are the glamour shots...

Shabby Chic Flip Mini Album Tutorial



Hello crafters and welcome to my post for Megs Garden.  Today I would like to share with this gorgeous little flip mini album.  This is super quick and only uses one piece of 12x12 cardstock.  However for this version I have actually cut down some A4 textured cardstock as it went perfectly with the soft pink tones of the papers.   I am working with my latest kit from Megs Garden - "Rose Quartz".  I have the 12x12 papercrafting kit.  Below are some pics of the gorgeous goodies Meg sent me this month.





Sooo without any further ado here is the really super quick and easy mini album that I found on youtube.  I will leave a link at the end of this post for you all to check out the creators video tutorial.  All you need is one piece of card stock and 12x12 printed papers. Yep, that  is all you need...oh and any embellishments, ribbons, flowers and bling you may like to add later on.

Ok here goes...
Step 1:- cut your card stock in half.  So you now have two pieces that measure 6"x12".
Step 2:-  Score your pieces. With your first piece of card stock score at:-
 2 3/4";
3";
7 1/2"
and 7 5/8". 
Set it aside and take your second piece of card stock and score at:- 
5/8"
5"
and 9 3/8"


Gently fold and burnish all your score lines.  Taking your second piece of card stock run a strip of double sided tape on to the 5/8" flap or any adhesive of your choice. You may wish to snip this flap as seen in the picture below, but it is not really necessary.  


 Now to put the two pieces together all you do is line the 5/8" flap up with the 3" score line on your first piece of card stock and adhere the little flap down........

 and that is it....the base of your mini is done.  All that is left now is to matt the pages and embellish.

I have used the following sheets to mat my pages...

Rose Quartz P6458 - Cut & Create
Rose Quartz 01 - P6452
Rose Quartz 03 - P6454
Rose Quartz 04 - P6455


Rose Quartz 05 - P6456

I have used the following embellishments:-


and here is the finished mini

















Thanks for stopping by today readers. I hope you pop on over to Megs Garden and take a look at what is new and exciting...

as always....
....remember to live your bliss......
