Ace Sketch!

Fancy having a go at this sketch?

Want to be in with a chance of winning some stash as well? 

Get yourself over to Kathy's Waffle Sketch File!

Funky Canvas Art

Apologies for being a little late sharing my Get Funky! Challenge creation this month! Kathy has set us up with a wonderful recipe...
3 different papers
5 flowers
2 buttons
1 length of ribbon (you can chop this up to taste)
A sprinkling of pearls or gems to season. 
At least one Funky Hand product must be included!

I took a 13x18cm canvas board, coloured one of the short edges with Gold Ochre Aquamarker & spritzed it with water allowing the ink to drip down the canvas.  After drying it with a heat tool, I then flipped it the other way up so the darker inked bit was at the bottom.  I stamped some flower images (by the Artistic Stamper) onto Funky Hand papers (the freebie paper & papers from the I Do Wedding Wordbook download) in brown ink, cut them out & embellished them with punched circles, Colorbok metal dots and Funky Hand buttons.  I added the Funky Hand ribbon & then curled the petals of the flowers before adding them to the canvas with 3d foam. 

The ladies over at Get Funky! have come up with some wonderful creations this month so make sure you take a look here!

Patchwork Birdie.

Bird template by paper-and-string; Basic Grey papers; Pink Paislee Artisan Tape; Heidi Grace Icon sticker.

I made this little birdie using a wonderful template from paper-and-string which you can find here.  It's designed for making a decoration out of felt but I thought it would work well on paper.  What do you think?  I certainly think I'll be using this one again & again!
