Results from Eileen's Workshop

Good evening Lovelies. Happy weekend to you all, I've had a fabulous day in Rochester today at Eileen Godwins workshop, it's always such fun, we laugh, eat cake and drink lots of tea, made by the lovely Sheila, and the wonderful cup cakes made by Barbara Clegget were to die for, yum yum! And of course Eileen's wonderful wit and inspiration makes it a great day. Here's what I made xx

No stamping today, all masks and stencils.

Visible Image and Brusho

Good afternoon Lovelies, just a very quick post today.

Today's make is for the Visible Image "Let it sparkle" challenge for September

Ive used Brushos on watercolour card spritzed with gold mica in water and placed bubblewrap over it to dry to create my background, I stamped the Butterfly with Black Versafine and heat embossed using Wow vintage glitter ep, I edged with silver gilding wax and buffed for more sparkle, sadly I'm not the greatest photographer and glitter doesn't really photograph well, I've done it in the garden in the sunshine too :(


Thank you for visiting today, enjoy your afternoon xx Zoe xx

More Brusho's

Good afternoon Lovelies, I hope you had a fab weekend?

I'm a little obsessed with my Brusho's at the moment, I just can't help it, the colours are fab and so much versatility.

I've used Ryns rain drops and ornate leaf I'm also adding this to Ryn's Customer Draw

I've used Clarity card for this one, the gloss one, I added distress stain to crumpled up cling film, spritzed with some gold mica in water solution and sprinkled on Brushos, wrapped the card with the cling film and left for ten mins before unwrapping, I finished drying with heat tool, the stamp stylised flowers by Indigoblu.


Brusho's on watercolour card spritzed with mica powder in water and placed bubble wrap over, another Indigoblu stamp, I painted the flowers and leaves with Brusho's too.

I posted a card the same as this yesterday, using different colours, my friend liked it and asked if I would make one for her to frame, she loves butterflies, so this one is for her.

Thank you for visiting today, xxx have a great day xx Zoe xx

More Brusho makes

Good afternoon Lovelies, I hope your weekend has been good?

I'm sharing with you 2 cards I have made today with my Brusho's.

My first card I used Sketch Daisies by Rubbernecker Stamps, the sentiment is Chocolate Baroque.

My second card, is residue from some Brusho's on bubble wrap which is for another project, I didn't wanna waste it, the stamp is Indigoblu big butterfly, I lightly spritzed with water and mica powder, sprinkled on my Brusho's then spritzed again and stamped, dabbed in places where it puddled so it didn't muddy too much, another Chocolate Barorque sentiment to finish.

Thank you for visiting today xx Zoe xx

Eileen Godwin's workshop

Good morning Lovelies, back again :)

I spent Saturday and Sunday at the lovely Eileen Godwins workshops down in Rochester and what a fab time I had on both days, such lovely company, good laughs, good chit chat, tea and cake, what more can a girl ask for? Oh and of course loads of fab inspiration from the fab Eileen. Saturday was a Brusho workshop which made a lovely change, now Brusho's if you are not familiar are very fine crystals of pure paint, water colour, very versatile. Check out YouTube you will find various tutorials. So here are my Saturday Brusho makes.

My first is Penny Black - Delicate Florals stamp

My second and third are Sweet Poppy Stencils


Fourth is Visible Image stamps

And finally another Penny Black stamp.

Sunday was an Altered Art workshop and we altered a very cheap IKEA mirror, just plain white, I should of taken a before and after photo but I didn't have my camera with me, but after lots of embossing, die cutting, sticking, black Gessoing, Painting and gilding, here's the end result, very pleased with it indeed.

Thank you so much Eileen for your wonderful inspiration, wit and general loveliness.

Thank you all for visiting today, I hope you hab a lovely day xx Zoe xx
