FERNLI DESIGNS BIRTHDAY CARD 


Wow I do have a heck of a lot of blogs to catch up with .... so I am starting with this one ...  It was my partner's birthday on the 23rd July and I made this card for her using FernliDesigns Cogs .....   Hazel is NOT a girly girl and she has always liked other stuff that I have done like this 
I started with stencilling my base card using the brick wall and some spray ink .  I then covered some card with foil tape and ran it through an embossing folder (a Tim Holtz one) and dabbed some alcohol inks onto the foil.   Then using some Core'dinations card I embossed this using the Harlequin embossing folder by Tim Holtz and sanded it back to reveal the pattern better and inked around the edges .

The cogs were SO much fun to alter some of them I used alcohol inks on them then rolled (using a brayer) Glycerin over the top and added embossing powders to it them melted it using my heat gun .


On all of the cogs I used this type of method to coat them with Glycerin then added different colours of embossing powders over the top  .... Then it was just a case of arranging it onto the card in a layout that I liked . 


Many thanks for stopping by

Fernli Designs 2nd June Project
FLIP PHOTO FRAME  


Hello again everyone .... Since finishing my first project for FERNLI DESIGNS I have been very eager to start on the 2nd one .... I also got some WONDERFUL news from Lou,   I have been offered a permeant position on their Design Team ..... EXCITED OR WHAT !!!!!  and of course I said YES .... I would be a fool to say anything else .... any way my 2nd project for them, here it is 
I started off with one of those cheap white plastic £1 frames from Ikea and gave it a gentle sanding and then gave it a coat of Gesso.  I then painted on the Matt Chalk Paint (Cosmic Shimmer ..Creative Expressions) with the Chalkboard colour  (grey) once that had dried I painted on the Crackle Glaze .. Wait for that to dry and then you can apply your top coat of paint ..... When you do apply this top coat make sure you paint a nice thick coat on it and DON"T be tempted to go over it a few times because it ruins the effect so make sure you have enough paint out to cover it quickly as the cracking starts straight away ...
Now on to the picture frames ... the first on one this Heart of Hearts and is £1.45 it is GORGEOUS.  I painted all the frames in the Grey Chalkboard paint . I added some of the COGS (Mixed bag for 50p ... and you get LOADS !!) I used a silver pen on mine. The little bricks you can see are from the Brick Wall and they are the bits that fall out of the cut frame and are £1 .. I painted with gesso first as the wood tends to soak up the paint and the gesso also gives a good surface for the chalk paint to grip to.  I then wrote on them using a Fine Line Drawing Pen.
The silver paws are just charms I had in my stash ..
This frame is the Lace/Scalloped Edged Banner and they are 25p ... the square on this one is one of the Squares (25mm x 25mm ) and are 10p. bellow the scalloped banner is a heart which I have attached using jump rings. I added some more bricks and wrote on them saying You Stole My Heart ... This is one of my favourite photos of my partner Hazel and our dog Roco the day we got him.
This frame is the Old Style Frame SET of 4 £1.45  and a small swirl  and of course a photo of our other gorgeous dog Bess
Again this is the Lace/scallop Edged Banner with a heart hanging from the bottom. On the heart I have used a cog and a small key ( a bag of 6 mixed 3mm small keys ....50p )
and the last frame is another of the scalloped edged banners with a hanging heart and a swirl .

Bellow on the pedestal I glued some florist oasis and put the fence in front of it and stuck in the flowers ... I also used a small lamppost on the frame .... after all you can't have a male dog without a lamppost now can you !!! 

The video of this is now up on youtube .... my channel is Ivory Moon 

Many thanks for stopping buy ... I would love to hear what you think
