Little things in life!

I thought I would show you a couple of the pieces I made at Ally Pally over the weekend. Often when I am demoing , I make quick and easy pieces, and I do give a lot away, but I did keep these two pieces!! Simple and so so easy to make.. I used 2 different size mini canvases, and coloured them with Distress Stains. Love these, so easy and quick to use, and you can enhance them with other Stain colours, which incidentally do colour over and not muddy!, or you can use your normal distress inks to fill in patches or highlight.  I poured UTEE over the inked canvas and immediately stamps into it. Love it when it drips down the sides! Then I added Perfect Pearls, and a mould from Crafty Notions which I also coloured with Perfect Pearls . The Elegant woman has the minutest piece of Gold leaf in her hair ( a happy Accident!)


I do hope you like, and I am off now for a fun filled day of catching up from my day out yesterday!!
Have a Creative Day

Aren't they gorgeous. Gotta get me some of these stains - they seem to make more sense to me than the pads.
