Daisy and George

So I scrapped this page...

...of my beautiful bunnies Daisy and George.  I used BoBunny 'forever fall' papers that are just gorgeous.  The colours are very 'me'

 I mounted the photo on some copper paper that I had double embossed with clear to make it super glossy.  Never wanting to waste a thing I cut the front page of the pad that had little tasters of all of the designs...

I cut out a frame from a sheet in the pack and inked the edges and over stamped with a V&A leaf design.  The BoBunny colours match perfectly with Crafty Ribbons 3mm's 
so I used them as accents tied around the frame plus one in the top corner.  I like my ribbon!!

Then at the bottom I used the same V&A stamp to stamp a border and put the Bun's names over the top.  I embossed the names in bronze but they just faded in to the background.  I tried to get them to stand out by dry brushing some green acrylic paint over the top.  It kind of worked but I'll try something different next time!  No journaling as I'm rubbish with words, I never know what to put!

My bunnies are incredibly naughty.  Places they are not supposed to be i.e. the flower bed, are just irresistible temptations to them, and wire fences are no obstacle!  Daisy (the bunny on the right) learnt how to open the door of their run.  George... well, George is lovely but he's not the sharpest pencil in the box.

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
