More from Die'sire

Hey every one

Well I wonder If you caught any of the shows on Ideal world/Create and Craft, they sold out on the 4th show so there certainly wasn't alt to tune in to see later in the day.. I managed to catch the shows last night though and see a few of my cards and Leann showed my teal wall hanging this a.m at 8.
Which was lovely, I am glad she had some good shows and managed all the sell outs .

 My favourite of her demo's on the show was when she went rogue lol and double embossed some roses with diff colours in a letter press technique.. very simple but so effective.

Heres my wall hanging.

This started one colour and ended up a totally different one lol , I primed a Daler board Canvas and covered it in a dark colour and dried , added some paperartsy (love love love) crackle glaze and then dried then a light colour and dried lol then...
 that's when it happened.. my mind just went off on a tangent and I found my air dry clay.... squiggled it in an embossing folder from the shows today.. the fabulous 6x6 Lattice then stuck it onto my painted crackled canvas and painted it all over to match etc.
After sanding back I added Treasure gold wax to make the golden lights. I made the word from the clay moulds. I added the crochet , buttons leaves and then made lots of quilled flowers from the Die'sire range and added through out the centre. I then added 2 holes for the ribbon, threaded it twisted and voila.

 I love this Indigo Blu stamp. I love poppies but Even more if they are coloured with distress inks and added utee over the top then they reach out and grab the proverbial attention so well.
 As you can see , this is again one of the quilling dies from today's show.

Nextly I made this....
It was my little vintage treasure with a little book and scroll both made from left overs and with added Frantage embossing powders etc., Its al glimmery and shiny in real proper life lol but on this its just pretty.

I am really looking forward to the Aly Paly show next month and meeting up with my girls from Craftwork cards for our after show meet, hope lot's of the girls are able to come, would love to meet up with them all.
Also is anything else happening soon... hmm let me see after 12 years I have handed in my notice in and my last day at the hospital is April 5th. I must say it will be nice having the challenge of something completely different.
I have also to finish a baby blanket and 3 commissions plus more in the next week or so, yikes getting busy and I don't care.... I love it lol

Have a great evening?day folks back tomorrow with more from the shows..
