That Craft Place - Alter it

Morning,
This time around at That Craft Place the challenge is
Alter It.

I love using my cameo to add vinyl to things so I knew 
straight away what I wanted to share..

I have altered some plain slate coasters into these.

This is what they looked like to start with, nice but a bit plain


 I picked out a couple of nice phrases from the Silhouette store, 
measured the coasters and using my cameo I cut them to fit the coasters 


 Using transfer tape I added the vinyl to the coasters, I could have left them like that
but decided to get a lovely shine on them by painting over the top
of them with the brilliant All Round Medium from That Craft Place


I gave them 2 coats letting each coat dry for about 2 hours in between.
and once they are dry they are protected from the heat of the mugs and they have 
a fabulous shine to them


Thank you for stopping by today and I do hope you enjoyed my little tutorial, 
who knows I might do a few more now 
have a great weekend 
xx

Easter/Spring at That Craft Place

Good morning, this week at That Craft Place the challenge is nice and simple, Easter or Spring if like me you don't make Easter cards, I decided to decorate some little jars I had at home (bought for Christmas and never used ) bet I'm not the only one who does that.....I used my cameo and scraps of vinyl to add Hoppy Easter, some bunnies and the names of all the little kiddies in our family to them. then just added some mini eggs.....
and I have to say you don't get very many in a bag this little lot took 3 bags and I had to add some cotton wool to raise them up so I could take some pics....I will buy more before I give them out...the largest one is a mason jar and I wrote a little message to my Granddaughter onto a little blackboard sticker that I got from Lisa at That Craft Place....thanks for stopping by today xxxx

That Craft Place.....Anything Goes

Morning,
it's time for another challenge at That Craft Place
this time it's ANYTHING GOES
I'm so excited to share this with you all today,
I've recently started playing with the wooden
MDF pieces from the lovely Lisa
I have to tell you I have tried this technique so many times and
failed miserably, but then I went to a workshop
run by the wonderful Maira Simms and well,
lets just say it all clicked into place......

My Granddaughter is called Courtney but I call her Ney,
this is to go on the wall in her bedroom at Nanny's house.

To make it I started off with plain MDF letter, (Lisa can cut any words you like)
I covered them with bits of embossed card and die cuts.
I then covered the whole thing with gesso, once that
was dry I went in using a dry brush with a little cosmic shimmer paint in
graphite and teal.
I finished it off with a spray of shimmer.
hopefully you can see the shimmer in this pic...
What I love about this is it looks nothing like card at all..
I'd like to add it to the following challenge please....
Cut it up challenges......Embossing
have a fab week everyone xx
