Post It Note Holders

Whilst home in the UK at Christmas time I had a crafty play day with my good friend Brenda and she gave me a beautiful Post It Note Holder which she had made. She gave it to me because I was quite poorly at the time and she knew that when I had seen it posted on her blog I just loved it. How kind is that. You can see Brenda’s post here.

What are we crafters like … hooked or what … I had to have the die which was a Tim Holtz Sizzix Index Card Folder … brilliant.

Anyways I made one so you get to see not only mine but also Brenda’s.

Brenda’s is the one with the ribbon on and mine has the little mouse which was printed onto tissue paper then mod podged.
More images below of the front and back … Brenda’s first then mine.

There is a new challenge blog just starting girls and I am entering the above into it … go check it out and see who is on the Design Team.

Country View Crafts Challenges – ‘Pick & Mix’ … that’s anything goes to you and me!!!

Love That Hat

Nicecrane Designs have some gorgeous images which you can print onto tissue paper beautifully, then add to your tag, canvas or whatever artistic medium you want to. Mod Podge is my choice of adding to whatever I am using but you can use whatever you feel comfortable with.

I chose this image to use on my tag which you can find here because she looks so elegant plus I had some flower soft on my desk which went so well. Used another piece of tissue paper which I already had in my bit box because the little rose image complimented her.

For the background I used the water and alcohol inks method to give a marbling effect on the tag, then sponged over with some translucent paint to give a beautiful sheen. The little piece of netting plus the flower soft finished her dress off just right.
