Decoupage with Wallpaper!

Following my previous project of ink storage, I have another storage box which I wanted to decorate.  However, this time I wanted to use some offcuts of wallpaper which someone gave me but wasn't sure how it would take as it is a lot thicker and heavier than normal decoupage paper.  So I had a search in my stash and found a mini clipboard which needed altering and decided to use this as my practice piece.



I was really pleased with the end result!  The paper did need more glue than usual and did take a little longer to sand the edges but I absolutely love this paper and will now give the box a go with it.  


For the back of the clipboard I just added some rub ons before glazing.


This final picture is an attempt to show the sparkly glaze which I got from Creative Expressions.  You can see it although in real life, the glaze is evenly spread!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
