Joanna Sheen has been with Create and Craft for 15 years this week! Time does fly by I remember watching her very first show on Ideal World selling beautiful Pressed Flowers.!
To celebrate the occasion Joanna had some wonderful bargains throughout the 4 shows which resulted in almost total sell outs! Congratulations! Joanna.
I made some of the samples that were shown over both of the days shows. I will be adding the samples over the weekend. To start with below are the samples I made using the new Signature Dies Fairy Door dies.
I designed these 3 fairy doors for Joanna
All the little flowers were cut from printed pages from the Holly Pond Hill CD Rom
I made 3 little toadstall shapes, added the doors and then a piece of
folded card lifts each of them like an easel along the path which was cut
out pieces of card stuck down to look like paving (with a little glitter Lol)
The plastic bubble here is a recycled piece of packaging left over from
Christmas tree chocolatehanging decorations!
I used circle dies to make the portal shape adding gems. I die cut the fairy door a few times colouring one brown for the wood and one from black card and paper pieced them together.
The door has a view beyond (a picture printed form the Holly Pond Hill CD) and I made the little sign and wrote Secret Garden using white gel pen. I used Moss around the edges.
I coloured a piece of A4 card using Distress Oxide ink pads.
I smudged the ink onto the craft mat
then spritzed it with water and dragged the white card through it - quite a few times - drying it off before each layer of ink. Once it was dry I die cut each of the doors twice out of the sheen and swapped the doors of each over to create the rainbow looking doors.. I did have to add a bit more ink using dry foam to add a deeper colour on the surrounds. I used some Rainbow ribbon from my stash along the top of the landscape A5 card.
Thanks for visiting :)
