I am busy thinking about Christmas ready for the opening of our pop up craft shop and so thought I would make a couple of Christmas Gift Bags - using Tim Holtz dies and stamps and the We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag punch board.
Since guest designing for That's Crafty! last month I have become a fan of their 'Surfaces range' - MDF and Acrylic. There was a new release last week of new designs including Uprights, clocks and Dreamcatchers. I designed this one using Donna Gray's new stamps - also by That's Crafty! I painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Acrylics.
If you saw the Hochanda show last week you may have seen this dangling in the background - LOL!
Now I needed to refresh on my video editing skills for another project and I remember I had taken a little video on my phone of the Dreamcatcher before sending it off to That's Crafty HQ - so decided to put together a little video. If I had known I was going to do it I may have got my video camera and tripod out rather that perching and balancing precariously on the window ledge with the dreamcatcher hanging on the curtain rail!
Hello again. Halloween month so our new theme at Country View Crafts is Spooky. Now I confess this is a theme I struggle with a bit but I did have fun making a couple of cards.
This card was my first outing for Wilted Violet DI! Yes I know I am about a year late - but only a recent addition to my stash and I love it!
My background uses Tim's shattered layering stencil and the image is from one of the Halloween blueprint stamp sets. I stamped and cut out the spiders body and added glossy accents for added spookiness!
I am back on Monday with another Halloween creation ..... a little different to this though!
