We have a BUMPER month this month as our top 3 merit badge holders, Alison of Craftytrog's Inky Advantures, Jennie of 'Words and Pictures' and Laura of Laurart will also be featuring with a guest DT piece throughout the month which means 2 new and inspiring pieces published each week!
"I created this project using all things PaperArtsy......a 6x4 box canvas, Grunge Paste, Fresco Finish Paints, Blossom Die and last but not least my hand carved style stamps. It's an easy project to re-create in a couple of hours. I love using these stamps, they are so versatile, all three plates are mix and match but today's project was made with the images from ELB01, full instructions can be found on my blog www.yoursartfully.blogspot.com"
"I've been playing with Decorative Strip Dies. I really wanted to see how realistic a wall I could create with the Brick Wall. Lots of inking, and some embossing paste mortar, and then the brick-laying, and I'm pretty happy with the result. Then I used the Tattered Flower Garland to create lots of flowers to go in my walled garden... Lots of fun making this - but pretty fiddly at times!"
"A tag to fit in with our garden theme this month with a row of Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers on a bed of foliage created from a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Birds and butterflies are attracted to this beautiful red colour and feed on the sweet nectar. A garden for our future generations."
"My first piece is a painty canvas of many layers with a garden scene of birds in trees and flowers. The handmade flowers are paper, stamped and inked with some made from crinkly cellophane packaging stained with alcohol inks. The 3D garden fence is made using Tim's Snowflake die."
"This is a little hanging using the fabulous PaperArtsy stamps designed by my incredibly talented friend Lin Brown. The little MDF plaque was covered in white then blue PaperArtsy paints. I stamped the leaves with green paint and then sanded the whole piece for a shabby, aged look. The flower was covered with white and blue paint and stamped onto grungepaper. A little blue Distress Ink on the very edge of the petals (and for the sentiment) and brown on the edges of the plaque finished it off!"
"I made a hanging board, using die cut cogs and some steampunk metal flowerswith light bulb leaves to add to my imaginary garden. The flower centres are bottle tops,filled with UTEE and cogs."
