    Photo / Note Fan

    This new design came about after looking at some old creations of mine. I used to paint and decorate pegs to turn them into magnets to hold notes and photos on the fridge, whilst sorting through them i thought, why not apply them to a plaque and create a fan of photos and so the idea was born. I tested out different numbers of pegs on the plaque until i was happy with the layout and felt that less was best.

    Equipment needed:
    Circular wooden plaque
    Card / Paper
    Embellishments of choice
    Wooden Pegs
    Craft Tape
    Centre image

    Tools needed:
    Pencil
    Scissors
    Silicone glue

    Step 1: Lay out different styles of papers, craft tapes and embellishments until you have a nice coordinating design.

    Step 2: Draw around your circular wooden plaque onto your paper. Cut out the circle and apply this to the wooden plaque using silicone glue.

    Step 3: Decorate the wooden pegs using craft tape.

    Step 4: Apply the pegs to the paper on the circular plaque using silicone glue.

    Step 5: Apply your centre image with silicone glue once the pegs are dry so not to knock them out of place whilst the glue is setting. I chose a die cut embellishment from the folk floral range, i gave the image some depth by using the decoupage layers and applying with foam pads.

    Step 6: Embellished the plaque with your choice or items. I chose gems as i felt that it gave the design the finishing touch it needed.

    As always all the equipment and tools needed for this creation are available at Go Create Seaton and on the web shop www.imaginedesigncreate.co.uk If you do decide to have a go at creating this photo fan i would love to see your creations!

  2. I decided to get creative with Kraft card today and a theme of black & goldPhotoGrid_1441809259299
    began to appear in the cards. I enjoyed using black and gold craft tapes and embellishments from the classic decadence range.

    A created a little collection of CAS cards using the same theme. To the side is one of my favourites and i will share with you the rest over the coming days.

    I really love working with the classic decadence range, it goes so well with a number of different papercrafts.

    I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  3. Spritz ink! PhotoGrid_1441809203277
    I have fallen in love...with spritz inks!

    I have been looking at these on the shelf in the shop for a while now and haven't had chance to give them a go but for some reason they called out to me to be used! I thought i would begin with using them simply on their own to create card backgrounds and i'm really pleased with the effect they give! I went on to use them on journal pages and mixed the colours for different patterns (photos to come in future blog posts!)

    To create this super quick card i simply used a spritz ink for the background and some of the new classic decadance range of decoupage images and then finished with a few peel of stars.

    CAS but pretty.
