Happy Halloween

This week for Helmar I have made a spooky Halloween tag. I used the wonderful Tacky Craft glue and made some fabulous spider webs. They turned out so well. I have stored the extras just on a sheet of card stock so I am all ready to make even more creepy items in the future.  

For more information and all the details head over to the spooktacular Helmar page. Dont forget to check out what all the wonderful Helmar design team are making. There is lots of awesome Halloween themed items all using different Helmar products. So grab a cuppa and check out what we have all been up to and hope you get all inspired to make some Halloween themed items to make your Halloween the best ever..  

Happy Halloween

Fun with some Art Journaling...

 I have not posted for a while but have been playing in my art journal. Lot going on at the moment. We are renovating our kitchen and bathroom, so I have just been doing fun quick art journal pages that take no time and are done in layers. So would do a layer, just a background and then come back and do the next layer. Leave that, come back and do some words and doodling. 

For this one when I did the background to the left. I just played with paint and stencils. I then cut out a heart in some book covering plastic. I held that over the top and used DecoArt Media Black Gesso to go around it with a makeup sponge. I then used some DecoArt Media Modeling paste and the cute Balzer designs Mini Circle stencil and gave it some great texture.

I used a fabulous napkin for this one just cut out the butterfly and then made some flowers out of some other pieces of the design. Doodling some stems and around the circles. I always like that part. The backgrounds were all done using Decoart Americana paint on both of these. 

There is other pages to come yet, so keep a look out for another post soon. 
Have a great day
