Frantage Magic

Still loving making these albums but I have an all day workshop on Sunday where you will be pleased to know I will be teaching how to make a different album this time with … envelopes.

Thank goodness I have made my class card for Saturday, just have to take the photos
Love everything about blogging even the writing but the taking of the photos now that’s a different matter!!!!

Hands up those who dislike taking photos of their work … both my hands are in the air … I craft most days and could probably post something new every day but I just dread the thought of taking those photos.

Had another play with that lovely messy and gloopy frantage … makes the most delicious things … even love just to look at the stuff in the pots, all twinkling and sparkling … how sad is that!!!! … sigh.

This time I threw lots into my melting pot … Shabby Pink, Silver Crushed Glass Glitter, Shabby White and also mixed in some red embossing powder … as you do for good measure. When melted, poured it onto my craft mat, stamped into it with the Crafty Individuals Swirly Stamp which had Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink on it then added 5 little red dew drops … 2 got covered over with the gorgeous liquid. Also did two lacy flowers and tied everything with a double taupe organza bow. The background on the cardstock has also been stamped all over with the Crafty Individuals Swirly Stamp.

Used those yummy 12 x 12 Graphic 45 papers again “A Ladies Diary” … have you noticed I only use the tiniest amounthate cutting into them. The die used for the middles is the smallest of the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One but before I stitched them onto the cardstock used the Crafty Individuals Ladies Stamps, masked off so that I could stamp a background image. Coloured the middle two ladies with DI’s but the lady on the back was stamped onto patterned paper then cut out.
