Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!

Alkaline Trio decorative hanging bell jar

Hey everyone, hope you are well. I am here with something small I created yesterday. I had a plain hanging bell jar for a little while and wanted to make something different. I decided to use jewellery fittings to help me make different layers. I used jewellery wire, head pins, beads, nail caviar, glossy accents and shrink plastic for my charms.

I glued the head pins onto the bottom of the bell jar and arranged the beads. I then closed the head pins by making loops at the top where I glued my charms. I glued one of the spirals I made with jewellery wire at the front and added a charm at the top. I made another spiral and glued to the top of the centre head pin with two charms. Lastly I glued nail caviar to the bottom and then covered with glossy accents and left to dry.












Alkaline Trio LED Fine lyrics art

Hey everyone, hope you are well. I am here to show you some LED art I created with some of my favourite lyrics. I wrote the lyrics directly on the canvas with fine liners. I then made a sheet of card to fit inside the canvas with 33ft of wire fairy lights stapled onto the cardstock and then placed this on the inside of the back of the canvas. I then used a sewing needle to pierce holes around where the lights showed most. Below is the canvas in the daytime.

Crafty Ribbons Tawny Orange Wreath

Good morning everyone, hope you are well. I am here today with a wreath I made using some of the gorgeous Jam pot ribbons from Crafty Ribbons. Super easy to make, relaxing to create and make lovely little gifts or inexpensive decor to switch round in your space.
I cut lengths of the ribbon and then tied it around the polystyrene ring. Its useful to have some clear nail varnish to hand to prevent the ribbon from fraying.

Thank you for looking, have a lovely day!

Alkaline Trio lyrics mixed media canvas

I am here to show you a canvas I created using printable cotton, cotton batting, plastic vintage style frame, acrylic paints, die cut foam, metal embellishments, glitters, texture pastes and nail caviar. The lyric fabric I created in a craft program then printed onto cotton, and placed in the frame after I had stuffed the frame with cotton batting.

Alkaline Trio Trouble Breathing LED canvas

A mixed media piece created with cool white LED lights in the reverse of the canvas, acrylic paints, wooden stars and pierced clusters of stars using a needle amongst lyrics on canvas card stock and a shrink plastic heartskull.

Alkaline Trio Vintage Mirror

I bought a plain white plastic mirror and wanted to create a gothic style mirror with it. I bought a faux gold necklace and painted the pieces and the mirror black and added pastes to make it look like a vintage piece. I glued these embellishments and the heartskull shrink plastic embellishment at the top of the mirror.
