Cards and mini books are the feature of today's post.

For this  post I have done some cards from some of the new chipboard released this month.Our Outback Australian pieces feature on the second card on this sheet.I have a requirement list for you If you would like to make them. Just print off the sheet.Chip[board was colored initially with a brown spritz, and defined with a grey Copic, and gold pen. Sentiments are off the new sentiment or greeting sheets.Loving the dimensional flowers.

My third piece is a mini book, where I have used lots of our new mini or card size pieces. You will see
lots of our larger pieces being offered as mini's over the next month.
I have placed a calender in this mini book, makes a great gift.

June reveal with Alicia Barry

This month we have been set the theme of Winter, and it certainly feels it as I sit here shivering.

Winter Wonderland
For this first one I decided to try something a little bit different. While I was searching for some wintery papers I came across some Christmas papers. I chose to focus on the winter theme of the papers, and the colour scheme was a little more on the masculine side, perfect for my boys. 

For the chipboard frame, I inked first, then applied a sparkle dark brown embossing powder over the top. The chipboard corners have been inked in red, then I applied some silver Ferro randomly over the top.

Snow Day
This next one is my daughter on the same ski trip. I have used another 12x12 piece as a background. I've done a few of these now using different designs and I really love how they come together. 

The design is so pretty and delicate, so I didn't give it much of a treatment. I just covered it in a couple of coats of gesso.  I did want the decorative title frame to stand out a bit more though, so I painted it with gesso, then applied some dry superfine glitter while it was still wet.

Altered recipe holder
Finally I have made an altered recipe holder with bird cage.  The Vintage board has been gessoed all over, and the birdcage has been treated with pearlescent paint mist in two colours.
