DT Pretty Gets Gritty - Floral Wreath

Four projects that I can share now. This first I decorated with enamel looking flowers. Actually it was a bit easier than that because I used Ranger Perfect Pearls and NUVO Crystal Drops
The Vines on the right are glittered plastic painted with Gesso and waxed/
And the flowers on the left were self supporting, carefully glued together with Matte Medium.
You can still see the shows on Hochanda ReWind on 23rd and 24th April where you can also buy all of the elements for this project. Another one tomorrow xx

Pretty Gets Gritty projects 7/4/18

I've already shown the altered box I did for the Hochandatv show which you can find HERE however I also made a few other projects including this puzzle frame using the MDF puzzle pieces and the new sprays. 
I have put links below to the products which are now available to buy online.
Next there was an old purse which I altered. There was nothing wrong with the purse except for a bit of wear and tear on the front so I thought I would give it a new lease of life.
I used a matte Gel Medium first, then Black Gesso and then Art Alchemy-Metallique Wax-White Gold over the top.
Then There was the layout made from Jigsaw Pieces

The white resin frames were painted with black gesso and then wax added.
a card and an Art Journal Cover using the fantastic sticky back fabric and Eileen Hulls Journal Die
and that's about it I think so I'll leave you the links to the products below. Have a great day xx

Three Mixed Media Cards

And finally for this round of Pretty Gets Gritty I made three mixed media cards using the kit I was sent and a few ribbons from a previous kit
The middle one I made again for my mums birthday and she was so please with it she is going to put it in a 3d frame. Result xx


Three Hearts Wall Hanging

So easy to make with these beautiful MDF words. This is mainly because they are slightly thicker than the ones I normally buy and I was made up when Lynette Jasper sent them to me to use.
Here are a few detail pictures 

If you watched Hochanda today you would have seen them hanging from the window behind the set. Love the detail in these. xx



Really loved making this canvas for Pretty Gets Gritty DT. I've been dying to use the reverse of a canvas and this worked so well.
The new kits are being demonstrated by the lovely Lynette Jasper on Hochanda on Sunday 19th November so don't forget to tune in.
I tried for ages to photograph the canvas to capture the BLING and sparkle created by the glitter but to no avail. Lets just say its a dazzler. xxx

Pretty Gets Gritty

Last month I was lucky enough to join the Pretty Gets Gritty Design Team working with Lynette Jasper and a fantastically creative Design Team.

The kit I received was amazing and I had great fun using it. Lynette went live on Hochanda on 7th and 8th October with three different kits and they were a great success.

Here are the three projects I made for the show.
All were mixed media with varying degrees of grungyness. The first piece and the easiest to do was the simple black and cream frame
The black background was made using the black gems and pinheads in the Ebony kit along with papers and flowers which were to die for.

The second was a mixed media round canvas using an assortment of flowers from several kits. The larger red flowers are actually the peony taken apart and turned upside down to give a more open look and the background was made using one of the stencils on the show.
The last piece was a another board canvas again using the stencils as a background and softer colours.
As with most of my mixed media pieces I like to use a photograph of other image. I just cant get away from the scrapbooker in me lol. 

If you want to see the shows and see what was in the kits follow this link to Hochanda

Looking forward to receiving my next kit. xx
