Back at TCP

Hi guys,well I am back on the team at TCP,. I am rather chuffed I must admit I am on the mixed media team and the theme will always be anything goes.

So I Made this,for this weeks challenge,
This is an old wooden box I had,so I took,the sewing MDF embellishments from TCP and added them to the lid of the box. I also used a stencil paste,etc and took some sprays,and here we have the finished,lid.

For the inside i decided to,use some canvas printed onto,took a frame from TCP and digitally added it to the layout,then same for the inside,and just laid,the rest of the embellishments inside the box.

It says,share your creativity with TCP and being creative is not a hobby its a way of life.

So if you would like to play along at TCP please pop over HERE to join in.

I would also like to thank you all for being patient with me but my wee granddaughter has not been well. She had thrush,and she has also been fitted with a harness as her hips are not,aligned correctly due to the difficult birth. So I have been popping over to my daughters every day helping out and with this heat the poor wee,angel is really struggling,bless her heart.

Just wanted to show,you this shot I took of a woodpecker out of my craft room window.

Some Sewing

Morning guys,sorry not been back.  As you know both my dogs have been ill,and also had several anxious times with my daughter's pregnancy.

Anyway they are monitoring my daughter closely and baby should arrive this week. So on tender hooks at moment waiting for the call.

 However, in the meantime I have been sewing trying something new. so here are a few items I have created.

                                  This is the back of the bag which I had padded,then drew some lines and stitched to give it the quilted look. Then added a pocket.

                             The front of the bag is designed in craft artist,then printed onto canvas. The kit is from Gracie Tracie who designs,the most beautiful kits. So I took the elements,and made this picture.

                             This bag,I made from some material I had and made a bag for my filofax,and room for my tablet. Then stamped onto the front of the pocket.

                         This is another type of bag, I made once again using craft artist then,printed out and made the bag.

So bless you for looking have a wonderful day,and take care hopefully later this week I may be back with some news.
Massive Hugs Cherylxxxxxx

However there is one special person I would like to personally thank and that is the owner of TCP and that is Lisa,she took me on when I needed it and she has been a real friend so I would like to thank her from the bottom of my heart for giving me this experience.  Love you hun and thank you so so much for everything.

Right now,for my final week,the theme is Tags,so I came up with this a tag book.

All papers are from TCP I have stamped on the papers on the front of the book,flowers are from my stash,die cuts tag,swirls and key.
Then I have added Lace,and some distress ink.

Now I also came up with this and she is called Tagatha,get it lol

 This is one of Lisa's dress forms,which i have painted,then used some crackle paint,and some mica on top. Then I made a skirt out of some fabric I have added a pocket for the tag to go into,then a few embellishments.

Morning guys sorry not been around,but I have been busy with decorating my bathroom,and nearly finished,my hall stairs and landing. Just tiny bit left to do and I am exhausted,but it does look great.

Anyway the theme this week at That Craft Place is,anything but a card,so I came up with this using one of the frames,from TCP.
Plus I also altered an old,book.

So here is my creations,for this week.

I painted,the frame with,paints,and added,some glue for texture waited for it to dry,then painted it with black,gesso then rubbed,some of it away,to give it an rusty effect. Then stamped,an image  onto card,and placed in the middle. Then added leaves also from TCP.

This was an old book which I played with and altered some of the pages,and made the cover giving it an aged effect.

So that is,it from me,for today if you would like to play,and see the stunning samples,from That Craft Place and play along the link is,HERE  

Have fun hugs Cherylxxxxxxx

Morning guys hope you are well.

over at That Craft Place the theme this week is alter something,now I had some chipboard from TCP just 2 pieces left and I decided to make a book with a spine.

So here is my altered book,a few pictures of step by step pictures.

Sorry its such a lot of pictures,just thought you may like to see,the step by step process. I used,some distress inks,and the papers are from TCP,along with the,oval piece of,chipboard on the front. I stamped onto,the board,and again using inks,to match,the rest. To close,the book I used a piece of vintage fabric,I frayed it one side,then used pinking shears on the other side. Took some velcro,to use to close the book.

So there you go,if you would like to play along with us again this week,the link to the blog is HERE

Take care guys,love hugs Cherylxxxxxx
