Baked Textures

Posted on

I was so excited to receive Seth Apter ‘s Baked Texture embossing powders.

After a play I put them on a pencil box from Daisy’s Jewels which is the perfect size to hold the jars.

I started with a sheet of watercolour paper I covered in small pieces of collage papers, tissue paper, scrapbook paper and old book pages. The edges were inked with Vintage Photo DI.


I stamped the next layer with Seth Apter star and Archival ink.

Then the fun!!! Three layers of Vintage Beeswax then sprinkles of Chunky Rust and Vintage Patina into the hot melted powder. The sides of the lid piece were edges with Tarnidhed Black powder. I added silver letters cut from a TH die.

When it was cool the backing peeled off the edges and tore into strips which I glued onto the sides and top. I had to weight it down whilst it was drying.

I assembled the box and painted it with DecoArt Quin Gold. I left the inside plain as I like the appearance.

The lid was hinged with strong black tape.

New Storage

Posted on

I am really pleased with my new two compartments storage box. It is MDF from Daisys and Jewels.

It fitted together easily with Daisys MDF Glue. I painted the inside black and used Scrapberry paper on the front and sides. I die cut pieces and mounted drawer pulls on top to label.

This was quick and easy and really useful storage.

February Hochanda Samples

Posted on

I enjoyed making the Hochanda Samples for Daisy’s, on TV on Feb 15th at 8am and 12pm.

The theme is flowers and gardening.

I used Tim Holtz industrial embossing folder with plumbers tape and craft card. Decoart paints created the rusty effect. The gardening journal is Eileen Hull Passport die as the base.


The flower pots had a coat of chalk paint and then I used stencils to create the patterns. The flowers were covered with Scrapberry paper a the edges sanded and inked. I used white pen to doodle over the patterns.

The flower vase was also covered in Scrapberry paper andPaperartsy paint.

I used another flower to make a small Mothers Day canvas.

Be sure to watch the shows!
