My finished projects from workshop with Sheena Douglass

As promised earlier in the week my posting today is about what I have finished following my workshop with Sheena Douglass last Sunday at Port Sunlight.  I hope you like my creations and would appreciate any comments as I just love to read all your thoughts on my work.

The first project was to paint fusion Ivy onto a candle.

The second project was to make a wall hanging using cicular mount board using the fir tree and fir cones.

The third project was to do a topper for a Christmas card using the Christmas Tree stamp.  Firstly we distressed the card with Chipped Sappire distress ink to create a dark sky, flicked water onto this and using a paper towel blotted the water off this produced a snow effect.  The tree was stamped and the smaller trees were stamped either side.  Using acrylic paints we then painted the end of the card to create a snowy base and then paint fusioned the tree.  The moon is a circle in white which has been distressed on one side to create a crescent moon. I added a gold star to the top of the tree.  To finish my card off I highlighted the edges of the topper with Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles and then mat and layered onto a large 8 x 8 square card adding ribbon and a sentiment.

The final project was the poinsettia, Sheena had made a Christmas Tree decoration, I have placed mine onto an A5 card matting and layering with black and white pearlescent card.  I have attached red ribbon to the back of the poinsettia and attached it to the card.  In the centre I have added silicone glue and sprinkled gold glitter, yellow and green seed beads.  The poinsettia has been sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle in gold.  I have added a sentiment and punched out snowflakes from my stash.

I hope you like my completed projects as much as I have enjoyed putting them together.

Thank you for stopping by today
