Fire and Ice Cheat ... IC Challenge - Mid Month

Hi Peeps


Here's some mid month inspiration for the


Here's my offering, my cheat for fire and ice 


Its so hard to photograph the Ice part but its really shiny





I've been admiring the Fire and Ice technique that's been doing the rounds

But being allergic to loose glitter I was itching just thinking about trying it

So I've found a less itchy way .... and funnily a less messy way too


Just brayer thick card stock with Sparkle Medium ....Ensure its bone dry...

Stencil through with gilding glue... Apply your flakes and voilĂ  ! 

Fire and Ice with less mess and no phaffing with double sided sticky stuff .. 

What do you think ? It looks great even hubby was impressed !

Stuff I've used 

Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium - Diamond

IC Gilding Flakes

IC Stencil Vine Trellis

IC Sentiment Stamp

In ruins ........ Literally

Hi Peeps
 
Here's one of Steve's Christmas presents, its taken over a week to do !!
 
Lots of drying overnights and hard work as its so big but it was worth it.
 
I've used lots of techniques, mainly following
tutorial but with a bit of tweaking thrown in
 
I can't tell you the main technique for the 'skin' as its not fair to Andy
but if you haven't done one of his tuts online you are seriously missing
out on some brilliant techniques and useful arty hints and tips.
 
 
I've taken an A4 2015 diary and created this
Its a really big surface to do in one hit but I really enjoyed it!
 
I've used
Deco Arts Media acrylics
Pebeo Studio acrylics
White, Black and Prussian Blue acrylic paints
Embossed card
Grunge paper
Tim Holtz Embossing folders and dies
Multi Matt Medium
Liquitex Modeling paste
Sand
Cogs Stencil
Bits from my stash
Front
 
Back

It was a real labour of love and I hope he likes it after all the work lol

Having a mucky day :)

Hi peeps 
I enrolled in one of Andy Skinners online workshops at the weekend so I've had a little go whilst following along..... Very mucky fun indeed ....

So here's my first run of some of the techniques for the Book of Ruination 

I've ordered some A4 note books to do a proper job but I don't think it's bad for my first attempts .... I seem to have got the hang of it better on the back cover lol
