Happy Halloween

Good Morning Crafters

Happy Halloween to you all!

Today I am sharing my tutorial which will sit on my window sill for the Trick or Treaters when they visit this evening.

Pumpkin and Spiders Web Stencil
Sparkle Medium, Silver, Black Star and Light Copper
MDF Plaques
Silkies Blush Satin and Silver Satin
MDF Paint

Using MDF Jet paint, paint both plaques back and front

On the plaque with no aperture stencil the Spiders Web with Silver Sparkle Medium.

On the aperture MDF plaque stencil the web from the Pumpkin Stencil.

Once the spiders web is dry stencil the spider from the Pumpkin stencil.

From the Pumpkin Stencil and using Silkies Satin Blush paint the pumpkin, once this is dry stencil the face using Black Stars Sparkle Medium, Stencil the spider with Black Stars and Light Copper for the word Boo!

Once all the Sparkle Medium has dried add Silver Satin Silkies onto the plaque. Attach the Spider which has been stencilled onto acetate at the back. Glue the aperture plaque to the base using hot glue gun. Place a tea light at the back which glows through the acetate spider.

I hope you all have a wonderful evening.

Going for a Song

Good Morning Crafers

Happy Monday to you all!
Thank you for all who stopped and said hello at the SECC at the weekend.

Back at HQ and busy getting ready for the NEC next week.

Today we are sharing Nicky's Tutorial.

Going for a Song Stencil
Honeysuckle Stencil
Sparkle Medium, Antique Pink, Turquoise, Candy Floss

Paint a square canvas with black acrylic paint.
(Tip - cut honeysuckle stencil in half diagonally for ease of use in corners)

Using Antique pink, and candy floss sparkle medium spread over the stencil,
(Unfortunately I ran out of masking tape but it is wise to use it when stencilling)

Do all four corners, then using going for a song stencil and turquoise sparkle medium 
cover the hole thing.

Using some tulle in green and white make a bow then using hot glue gun to adhere in place and added a pearl gem embellishment to the centre

Trim around the edges of the canvas with black rose trim.

Thank you for visiting today!
