Domino necklace and going away

Hi All

 Altered domino necklace to show you today and I am so excited as I have sold it already whoo but I have to admit I wanted to keep it but I do have one so I cannot be greedy.

The domino first had drilled holes put in to where I wanted the rings to go, yes I do look funny with a drill in my hand but I managed to do it lol.

I used alcohol inks in lime green, pink and light brown on the sides and back to make a pattern like roses with leafs, I like out it turned out.

The back.

I had some roses paper which I stuck to the domino after inking the edges with distressing ink.

The whole thing was covered in gloss accents, this takes time as you can only do 1 side at a time.

After applying the gloss accents to the front you embellish at the same time, I used a flower from W/O and covered that with gloss accents and the bling I found in my junk box.

The necklace is made with pearls, ring bling and swarovski crystals with the same detail on the bottom.

Hope you like it too.

Journal Page

Hi All

This week I had time to do another journal page and this was inspired by Vicky who does wonderful creations, some with videos and as soon as I spied this one I had to have a go.

The background is squares of paper, then paint  over with distress paints in 4 different colours and sponged off with baby wipes to get light and dark and the edges smudged with dark coffee.

 Each square was outlined in Pitt pens and smudged to blend in, then to finish the back ground I dipped a cap off my polish and a smaller one in coco ink to represent cup marks( I did not have a cup stain stamp) added more paint and splodged about a bit.

The cups I cut on my silhouette out of different papers and stuck in a stack, using pitt pens again I shaded ,ink and splodged (technical term is splodged lol) I made little tags for the tea bags inked again.

The letters are from Tim Holtz and painted with distress paint, the tea letters I had in my stash and covered with paper and shaded with pitt pens.

To finish I glazed the whole thing then added car polish on the top to shine this also stops the pages sticking together when your journal is closed.

I had so much fun doing this and was covered in paint and glue, love it.

Thanks so much for popping in today, I love your visits and comments.

I am going back in my craft room now as I managed to get some images coloured and now I just have to make the cards, busy day here today.
