April Releases

Hi and welcome to the April new releases blog hop for SpiegelMom Scraps.  You've probably arrived via Katty (check out her youtube channel too!)

I have made a tag for today featuring the beautiful new Lilac Twinkle sequin mix.  I was very excited to discover it had beads included in the mix too!

I took a plain shipping tag, a few cuts from my silhouette (the flowers are from our recent team up with Jen Schow) and a variety of Shimmerz products.  (We have just expanded our range of Shimmerz products!)  I spread some matte medium over the tag and scattered the sequins and beads - you may have to shift a few sequins over making sure that they get good contact with the glue.  Don't forget to use the code Laura15 if you make a purchase from SpiegelMom Scraps!

To finish off my tag I took a length of white lace from Crafty Ribbons and dyed it with the same shimmerz colours I had used on my leaf cuts.

I'm the last stop on today's hop - thanks so much for hopping with us!  Don't forget if you leave a comment on each blog you are in with a chance of winning $10 credit to the SpiegelMom Scraps store!

Thanks for stopping by!

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
