Stempel Mekka

On the 13th and 14th of September we exhibited at The Stempel Mekka in Hagen Germany. This was a very busy international event. We met up with friends old and new. One of my design team member Jo P and her DH travelled with us. We went by overnight ferry from Hull to Rotterdam.

Saturday was the busiest day and there was always a crowd around the demonstration table.

We were busy all day
So was everyone else

Key cupboard

I purchased a key cupboard from a charity shop to alter. I sanded it and painted with primer. Then I stuck keys and the wooden letter K on with glossy accents. The whole thing had 3 coats of metallic pewter paint. Finally I adhered the grungeboard keys and keyhole that I previously painted with a gold dabber.
It looks so much better in the flesh though.

Fabric paper

Today I made fabric paper using a piece of cotton for the base and coating with watered down PVA to which I added scraps of paper, threads and a silk flower. Then more watered down glue to adhere tissue paper and finally colour using acrylic paints. I have to make something from it yet as part of a swap on New Generations Yahoo group. A fun project

Altered Milk Container

Had fun today cutting up a 4 pint milk plastic container. I used alcohol inks to colour it. Then I glued some rhinestones and a fabric flower on the front. Then I cut some tags and a butterfly with the cuttlebug. Stamped on the tags and embossed the buterfly. Next I made holes with a punch and threaded ribbon through for the handles. Finally I threaded the tags on some fibre and attached them to my milk carton/handbag.
