Storage Ideas

I am all ways looking for ways to store stuff and at the same time make
it easer to accesses .Im a bit of a hoarder ,I don't like to toss out stuff
because one day I just MIGHT use it lol

This week we are blog hopping,, starting at Imagine If ,

from Brenda's Blog , Brenda has also been working on her storage
this week.

So here we go, I brought a plain folder , which I am going to add
some magnetic pages to hold my thin dies and also some
slick pages to hold my favorite cling stamps.
 Firstly I used the Imagine If circle stencil with whipped spackle
to create a back ground, I also made straight lines using a piece of
I missed a photo here, i then used a light green spray over it,
next I run my paint brush along the top full of paint so it would
run down the cover.
Next I pulled out the chip board
 ( have I told you before how much I LOVE chipboard ) lol

I then started gluing things on, I also added some metal and
other embellishments

with one of the rectangle frames which I cut a small
section out of (to make it fit) then run through my cuttlebug,

A Walk at the beach

Hi , This week we are playing with frames. You can get all
sorts of frames ,fancy, plain, large, small, and every thing
in between. You can also do so much with them.
have a look HERE   One of my favorite things to do
is to cut them in half,  if square and use as fancy corners .

 When I start a lay out I like to pull out some bits and bobs
that I think might work with the photo or the theme and play
around with them until I have a starting point I like

  I so love the sea horses, I used the same colors as the frame
and a small green pearl for the eyes. I used tiny dark seed beads
down the back  then covered with dimensional magic.
I think he's pretty handsome my self :)

The very thin star fish below  I covered with dimensional
magic then poured tiny seed beads on top

Above is the corner  display . the white shell is from the
" SHELL COLLECTION" which is so neat, they finish
a sea side layout perfectly, I just painted it white and
when dry covered with dimensional magic   

The frame I run through the cuttlebug for some texture
then painted it with acrylic paint. I also added a little
green on the swirls. Once dry I spread a thin layer of
dimensional Magic . Behind the photo is hidden journaling .

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you have found a little
inspiration in my work .
Have a fabulous week :)

Loveing Nature

Welcome to this weeks blog hop, I hope your ready for
some crafting, because this week our theme is nature ,
and we all know that nature has so many wonderful and
beautiful sites to see . Also I am sorry that my photos are not
in the correct order, I tried twice to fix this ( grumbles dam blog)
Any how, you should have started at Imagine If , and come
to my blog from Ngaeres blog

I run the tree through the cuttle bug for a little texture,
the used primas glod spray, the we house is cut from a strip
of little houses and coloured brown using chalk ink.
I fussy cut the little birds from primas new paper line
"for ever green collection" these papers have lots of things
that can be cut out out which I love.

The reed on the right is such a fun piece to work with, and
is super for filling a space, I used Tim Holtz distress ink
"forest green" then I used a liquid glue on the ends and
covered the glue with tiny glass beads to imitate seeds .

In this photo I am playing around with different peace's  to
see how it looks and coloring some of the bits I will use.

I am LOVEING the mushrooms ,so I made them into a house
for the little mouse you see there on the right.

The 2 trees on the right hand side I painted black and used as
part of the back ground

The unicorn I painted white ,then covered with super fine glitter
lots more fussing cutting along the front edge

Now these 2 photos are the same but I forgot to add the letter box
on the side ,see below, but the top photo was better.
The mushrooms I used acrylic paint, vintage red and vintage white
I used a dab of liquid glue and clear glass beads to make the
dots, the other mushrooms are fussy cut from the Prima
"forever green collection"


And here is my finished mini wonderland , full of butterflies
firns mushrooms and so much more. Thanks for taking the
time to check out our latest chipboard at Imagine If  .
Your next stop on the blog hop is Lilians lovely blog
Happy Hopping
