All sorts.

So its been a while since I blogged regularly and when I got here I realised all the formatting had gone due to changed with google blogger.
So everything below here is very badly formatted lol.
I'm playing catchup a bit now after having had a wee cancer scare and some time in hospital etc. lost over a year to that and all crafting was set aside.
But I'm back in to the swing of crafting regularly as from September.
My design teams require that I blog and that I keep it up to date on a "reasonably regular" basis so here I am.

I'll start with the last two Calico Crafts projects.

You can find all the links to the supplies on the calico design team blog HERE
 First, a mechanical whatsit in a glass dome...


Secondly, a Halloween arch.
This actually came with a much larger central section as its a triptych, but I used that to make a steampunk coat of arms...

Vampire hunting kit.

I bought a giant old bible cover... no bible, it was just a cover on its own. Leather and brass. I fell in love with it and used it as the basis for a new vampire hunting kit...
I made the case and filled it with other vintage finds...

MCM Comic Con

As promised (Barbara lol) here are a few images from the Comic Con.
I was there with support from my friends at the Glasgow Ubiquitous E steampunk Society. (Couldn't really go to something that big without the support of a large group of close friends)

Here are a few of the members that were there on the saturday.
 
 These two are from 2 of my favourite XBox games.
Fallout 4

And Wrench from Watchdogs (can you tell I turned into a 14 year old girl in my head? all shy and giggly)
Some folks I met there.



 And here I am holding the vampire kit and Mike has the exorcists apothecary (from the last post)...

Till next time x

Steampunks and Comic Con.


Well it's been a while since I blogged.

My steampunk society are all going 'en masse' to the Glasgow Comic Con on saturday so I have mostly been making props and accessories for my outfit (and my husbands).

Vampire slaying kit (for me)

 

Exorcists Apothecary (for hubby.)


 Pendant (for me)

 
 
Some jewellery and medals for other steampunk friends.




 
 
 
 
 

I wont go on as all the rest is very similar.
Also went on a Finnabair course but no point sharing that. Everyone's work looks pretty much the same. ;)

Also this month - handed in my projects for the Craft Stamper. But that's for the December issue (out in November).

Now back to fixing up my outfit for Comic Con.
So excited.

DecoArt and Tando Creative. A PIP collaboration.

Decoart have a few Partners in Crime (no thats not the term its ummm "Partners In Promotion") and we collaborate with them from time to time; you may remember we did a "Stampendous bog hop"?
well back in february we were asked to work together with Tando supplies, as part of the Decoart design team, to send samples off for tando to display at trade shows and such.
I selected this lovely folder to alter. there are more pages to it but I only had time to do a few before sending it off to Di.

Page 1 leaves and flourishes also Tando parts.

Page 2 and 3 Book plate also a Tando part
Page 4 and 5 Flourish also a Tando part.

Page 6 and 7

lots of yummy DecoArt supplies used here. Texture, paint, metallic lustres, crackle, stencils etc etc.
And by the skin of my teath I have made blogged it in time for the June challenge on "Our Creative Corner" as their sponsor is "Tando" and my Decoart supplies make me VERY happy making it fit well with the June theme.
