Eiffel Tower in Metal!

The new TH Eiffel Tower die showed up yesterday at my LSS!  And since I teach there... they were nice enough to save me one of everything Tim that came in.  I think I bought most of it!  I am so excited to have this die.  I went to Paris last spring and fell in love! 
 
A little grunge board and oven liner makes up my version of Tim's new die!  Oh and YES you must have the matching embossing folder.  A MUST to emboss and get that texture from the die!

The Fleur de Lis is fantatic in large (I have the smaller ones too) all shiny in gold.  After embossing I used my gold dauber, embossed, layer Versamark, UTEE, heat then sand for this distressed look!


The new mini M&S's postage stamp is coloured with Bard Door stain and adds a great layer with a little punch of red.  I attached the #5 with my mini attacher.


Seriuosly, this "enjoy the journey" from Stacked Artful Word strip die is a must!  For a little subtle shine I painted some Clear Rock Candy.  LOVE THAT SH*T!


I embossed the tag with Distress Paper and the new Eiffel Tower & French Script embossing folder.  GET THIS SET if you end up getting the die!


This is why I started teaching classes...so I could afford to get these when they came out.  Hey, this teacher needs to use the new goodies...right?

Can you tell I'm in love!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
