Busy Creating not Posting

Hi All,

I Can't believe it has been a couple of months since my last post on this blog.
WARNING! I am making up for this with a really long post with lots of photos & links. BEWARE!

During those months I have actually been really busy creating for the
Hobbysew Echuca Creative Team.
Details of all the different creations are on their blog if you want to follow the link above.

Today I wanted to add pictures of some of my favourite pieces to share.
I have included links to more information as well.
Hope this will finish 2016 off nicely so I can start afresh in the New Year.  
Really looking forward to what is planned for 2017.

My Creations are quite varied.  Hope they give you some inspiration & ideas.

I had lots of fun changing this plastic wine glass into a GOBLET from ANTIQUITY 
using IOD Vintage Art Decor Molds & Paper Clay.  
Lots of Prima products were used such as Art Stones, Gel Medium, Crackle Texture Paste & gorgeous Art Alchemy Paints which gave such a textured metallic finish.

As gifts for friends I altered some small Kraft Clipboards that I bought from an office supply store.
I called this one below the Denim Sunny Days Clipboard which features Crackle paste & Rust paste as well as Denim & Crocheted flowers shaped with Sculpture Medium.  The photo is from the 70's!!

I called the other one The Lady & the Dog Clipboard.  
It was made in a similar way but has a more Antique Vintage Feel.
I added a Paper Clay element I made using an IOD mold 
& Ranger Crazing Medium to age the picture.
I am sorry you will have to follow the link to see this one. 
I have accidentally deleted other photos of this as it was a gift.

These layouts pictured above were started at a Prima Workshop taught by Cari Fennell  
at Paperific in Melbourne August 2016. 
They were finished in my own style at home.
Check out the variations on the themes by 5 different designers on the Hobbysew Blog and here also.

I also made a lot of Cards for Special Events. These are super sized!

and then a touch of Halloween (love those mini crazy birds!)
Check out my Vintage Altered Frame here for more Halloween Inspiration.

& then I got into full Xmas mode!

Gorgeous Sweet Peppermint Advent Frame made using Prima Frank Garcia Papers & embellishments.

Finally my Xmas Card Extravaganza!  These feature the Sizzix Tim Holtz Poinsettia Die.

I made so many cards that Hobbysew spread them out over 5-7 days.
These featured Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet papers.

Also cards featuring Gold & Silver Foiling Techniques

After finishing the Xmas cards my final Creation for 2016 was this 
featuring my all time favourite images inspired by Tim Holtz.

Wishing you a wonderful creative Year in 2017
Bye for now
