Yesterday was Halloween, and I had some fun with my glimmermists, glaze and High Pigment from Tattered Angels earlier this week... (warning, there is a lot of pictures in this post) And if you follow down you will get a "small" step by step.
I made 4 small give away gifts and two tags, all at the same time..
The tags are made from the left overs on my messy sheet when I was done with the small gifts..
I started out with the mists, paint and glaze that I wanted to use.. and some tattered leather papers...
Cut the paper into four 6" x 6" and misted them with lots and lots of water..

Then I tapped on the different mists and glaze... and some more water... (so you need a paper that can handle all that water and misting.. )

Because this was for Halloween I needed lots and lots of orange.. so I used a heavy coat of that...

A bit more black (dropps) and turn and swirls the sheet as I dry..

When a little more dry I add lots of drops of glaze (without more water) and dry them right away..

Before it is all dryed I roll it up and dry in shape...

Then I use med glue gun to glue togheter..

Close one end, add candy and close other end...

Now on to my decorations on this ones.. Left over papers and som High Pigment paint in brown and black and some glimmer mists to add some life..

just look at that effect..

Now it is time to clean my craft sheet..

Mist the sheet with water and use one, two or more tags to clean it up..

Just look at that jummy effect..

From the paper I painted I cut out different kinds of diecuts.. just what I have and what I want..

And it was a lot...

And just add to the gifts and tags... simple as that ... all done..


Hope you got some inspiration..

(PS, can`t wait to do a Christmas variation of this)


Decorated matchbox`s

Hei alle sammen
Jeg er inne i en slik småprosjektperiode for tiden, og bare elsker å lage små ting som kan være gaver.. Denne gangen har jeg pyntet to fyrstikkesker, slik at de kan passe både til jul og alle andre tider av året..

Hey everone

I am loving all those small project this days.. and today I want to show you a little matcboxdecoation (holding two matchboxes).. This is a project I did for the Norwegian store Scrapomania

Jeg hadde litt papir igjen etter at jeg lagde noen andre esker, og som vi alle vet, alt må jo brukes, helt ned til den aller minste biten...  :)
I hade some paper leftover so I could not let that go to waste..
Jeg fant frem to herlige dieser som utgangspunk og startet på reisen..
I used two dies for this project, one is from La-la Land and the other (leafs) are from Memory Box

Det neste jeg gjorte det var å ta en Tim Holtz stensil, litt modeling paste (light) og bundle sage distress ink.. ( de røde prikkene er kommet ved god hjelp av en frøken som skulle hjelpe mamma, og hadde en rød tusj). Blander modeling paste med distress ink og tar igjennom stensilen, deretter strør jeg glitter over så det fester seg i modeling pasten.. så enkelt.. :D
To start I used some light modeling paste mixed with bundle sage distress ink, took it on with a stencil by Tim Holtz and added some glitter to it..  the red dots are a little contribution from my little princess that wanted to help her mom..
Deretter limte jeg den herlige utstansede borden fra La-la Land på esken (jeg limte nedre kant og de på sidene, hjerte lot jeg være "fri").
Then I just started to place my die, flowers and everything else..

Så var det bare å pynte med perler, blomster, hvite buskbær, bladene fra diesen, en liten nøkkel og noen fjær.. Og så litt glitter på toppen av blomstene...
In the end I added the feathers, just because I felt it missed something..

Håper du fant litt inspirasjon
Hope you found some inspiration
