May - Leonie Pujol's Stamps and Stencils/Masks

This month we played with the first release of Leonie's stamps and stencil/masks.

I am still trying to decide how to finish them off.

Create - background created by using a bit of cut'n'dry foam and loading up with colour on the end of the foam, and then swiping from the centre of the mask outwards.

Used a brush to create the stripes over the mask.  Do I colour the birds or paper piece them or what?  Take extra care with the Sing masks, most of mine have lost their S's due to mask breakage, what letters could I add 'ing' to?

Fun - a work in progress, the mask is still stuck in place, waiting to be stamped over.

Home - done at a Julia Watts - stencil masterclass.

The following was also done at Julia's workshop.

This is a skinny sent to me in a swap - they used Leonie's Stamps and Mask.  (Skinny is a piece of work 3 inches by 6 inches)

This was a card I spotted on the internet that was not linked to Crafter's Companion, Hochanda or the Design posts - like the idea - more adventurous than I was with my Crazy Birds

and there then was this one going a step further and using stampbord

April - Tim Holtz Tags

Personal request for this month.  I have been stocking up over the years on the products that Tim uses on his tags, so that I can have a play with them, but have never got round to it.

So this month brought all the materials I had and made the January 2016 tag plus the two tags that Tim linked to this tag.

Tags not identical to Tim's as had to modify the designs, as I found that I had two alarm clock dies and not one alarm clock and one stopwatch.  Also did not want the alarm clock on two tags out of the three, when I mounted them on my A4 Canvas board.

March - Background Dies

This month we made some cards where the main feature was the background card.

February - Clocks

Using the Indigoblu Clocks kit made a small circular clock before the class, so the class could see what they were aiming for.

While explaining to the class how to get this clock, I made the following clock.

January 2016 - Cancelled

Classed cancelled due to tutor's illness - not such a happy start to the new year.
