Last sneak peek

The weekender shows kick off tomorrow on create and craft at 9am..
 Sheena will be bringing the new pebeo kit and 4 new stamp sheets.. 
Here are the rest of my samples, to hopefully wet your appetite .. 
Starting with the mixed media..

I made a necklace with the fantasy paint and decorated the box using the guiding sheets from the kit...

This is a box I altered using the paste and paints and a little of the gilding sheets.. 

This is a box canvas I made using gloss medium and the paints from the kit.. 

Now for my card samples.. Using the tree  sheet and the abstract.. For these I primarily used aquatints. 

So there you have it.. 

I hope you can join Sheena for these shows.. 9am sky channel 674 1-2nd November
Thank you for your visit it means a lot

Sneak peek 3

Mornin all,
Quick post..
Pebeo mixed media launch this Saturday and Sunday on create and craft TV with Sheena Douglass.. Along with some new stamps .. 
Here's my mixed media piece.. 

It's a canvas using the fantasy paints, craft paste, Aqua tints and the stamps I used are my favourite Sheena stamps from a while back the hibiscus.. Which I think may be on the show.. (If you haven't got these stamps.. Get them!) 

Next is a sample using the new stamps..
 I got trees and abstract to work with.. 

This one is made with the tree plate.. And aquatints..

I'm still not too sure of show times (as they change) so when I know I'll post them..

Sneak peek 2

Mornin all,
So sheena's shows this weekend will contain a new media kit from pebeo and 4 new stamp sheets..
I have been working with the media kit and here is a tin I altered.. 

Again to see the paint in its glory you have to see this in the flesh..

And now here is a sample using some of the new stamps.. 

Again I used the fab aquatints as my background.. And stamped  with acrylic paint and archival ink.. 

Thank you for visiting

new products sneak peek

afternoon all,
                     thank you for visiting me today.. it means a lot..
well I have a sneak peek at some new pebeo products being brought to create and craft tv this Saturday and sunday 1-2 November..
Sheena is bringing to you a new fantasy paint kit...
now I hadn't tried these fantasy paints.. so I was itching to get my mitts on some.. and was lucky enough to be chosen to work with them..

I decided I was going to do abstract work... which is very new to me..
Ive seen a lot of it about in the shops and have always wanted to try it.. now I have...

here is my first piece...

 a canvas board..

there is a mixture of fantasy Prisme, moon, vitrea and ceramic on here..
I also used pebeo craft paste to give it some dimension...  the reactions from these paints are fantastic..
this is a piece you really need to see in the flesh to get the effect.. it looks very arty in real life.. and was very easy to do...
also on the show will be some brand new stamps..
here is a sneak peek at one of the cards i made using them...

the background is using aquatints.. and ive also used some of the gold gilding sheet from the new pebeo kit..
Reet.. when I have show times I will post them..
there will be more sneak peeks by the inkoids  HERE
thanks for stopping by

heartfelt creationsclassic sunflower

                 I decided to make a little mothers day card (yessss mothers day card.. I know.. but I like to be prepared)..
Here is my creation...

 I started off using some of the heartfelt dies... I used a foliage die...

and the classic sunflower die..
I coloured using radiant rain dabbers..

for my backing paper I used the waste card from the die cuts and distress inked through it..

I also did this on the sentiment die cut...

I assembled my card.. stacking the flowers, I added black distress glitter to the flower centres.

and there you have it... a mothers day card all ready for March lol
thanks for your visit..

Sneak peek 4.. Aquatints

So why do I like the new spectrum noir aquatints?? 
There are many reasons..
 Faux bleaching,
 they react with salt, 
they blend, 
they spritz,
 they are the most delicious colours, and good size pots (that have a tray to keep them secure..
There are other reasons that escape this poor brain of mine at this ungodly hour! 

 But as they are from the spectrum noir range you know you'll be getting very good value for money.. 

Reet  get your sunglasses on!!! 

here is another of my samples.. 

This one is using the salt technique, and added a bit of doodling to the outer edge (I saw this doodling technique via Dina Wakley and thought I'd try it.. I like the effect!!) 

Reet I'm off to nurse a real doozer of a chest pain (anxiety is very bad ATM..  Least the back pain has subsided!) and a sore throat and tickley cough..
 Eesh I'm falling to bits people!!!
