Chicken Soup #39

Happy Royal Wedding Day!!!
This weeks Chicken Soup Inspiration features Union Jack Bunting! Quite rightly so!
Check it out & see what all the soup chefs have come up with :)

This page was started last week, photos will be added upon our return from Gozo which is where I am with my family, celebrating the Royal Wedding in the sunshine!

A nice simple page featuring lots of Artemio London Icon Stamps (well it would have been rude not to!) Promarker Lipstick Red & half a Journal sticker by Basic Grey Basics. Bazzill shades used are Brick, Bazzill Blue & White. The alphabet is Sizzlit Chip Block by Tim :)

I hope you're all having a Great Day!
See you next week :)

Chicken Soup #38

Friday again!
Hop on over to the Chicken Soup Blog for this weeks Inspirational picture, here's my interpretation :)

I used 2 sheets of paper from Basic Grey Basics, Pink Paislee's Daily Junque Stamps, Alpha Stickers & some Claudine Helmuth sticky backed canvas with a printed digi image. 
Easy peasy!

Happy Easter Everyone!

And More Photos to Share!

The first two photos are of my finished piece from Jennie's Mixed Media Patchwork Workshop last month :)
I love getting messy & the fact that the workshop tables are bulging with stamps, inks & paints to play with!

Jennies Workshops are always jam packed with techniques, next months features Shrink Plastic & you can book here :)


This photo is a random shot of my new toy on display in the shop - I love, love, love it!

It's a 7 Gypsies Receipt Holder. Why do I love it? Because it needs no thought process, just ram in those mini artworks & other random goodies that are too lush to set aside in a drawer. Like a Style File on the wall!

Check out this Video from 7 Gypsies, theirs are AMAZING!

That means another Chicken Soup Recipe is up for interpretation :) 
Pop over, have a peek & join in! 

Here's mine :) 
I chose my colours & textures from the photo (pink/black & bricks) Random! 

Here's a step by step:
- Stamp edges of Black Bazzill card with Daily Junque stamps and Brilliance Orchid ink 
- Die cut cogs with chipboard 
- Emboss Distress Core'dinations pink card with Texture Fades folders 
- Die cut one piece of that Embossed card with Cogs 
- Gently swipe over embossed card with Black Soot Distress Ink Pad 
- Adhere embossed cogs to chipboard cogs 
- Place photos, cogs & embossed car onto background 
- Balance page by placing cogs in a triangle 
- Add more stamped image from Daily Junque set 
- Die cut alphabet and adhere to card & a sticker 
- Add journalling to another sticker 
- Finally add a glaze of Glossy Accents to the title & date then leave well alone to dry! 

Have a Chilled Weekend yourselves!
