Lest We Forget

Our Granddad Walter Jackman b 1881. Served in the Royal Naval Reserve 921/TS, served on various RN Trawlers mine sweeping in the Atlantic, blowing up mines for safe passage for the convoys. Luckily he survived-or I wouldn't have been here! but it wasn't an easy job (nor were any of them). He earned his 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory medal. I just thought he deserved a mention today.
John also had an Uncle who fought hand to hand with the Japanese on land and another whose boat was torpedoed by the Germans and they spent 10 days in an open boat.When he died Hedon Road was lined with people and John Prescott was there too.
My Dad was actually in a Japanese port when they came into the was and they had to sail out and escape under cover of darkness.

Artist Trading Coins and Katz

Morning I have two DT post today and the 2nd one is for the "Anything But a Card" challenge at Get Creative.
We are sponsored by The Papernest Dolls,Scrap'N'Dipity and Rick St Dennis whose "Katz" image sheet I used there are 4 images and some pawprints but I just used three of the images die-cut with Creative Dies scalloped circle,coloured with promarkers and made three Artist Trading Coins set onto teabags which are the perfect size for trading coins.
The textured stamps round the edges are from Lisa Horton which look a bit harsh even with 2nd stamping-think I need a grey ink pad.

Throwback Thursday

Morning and my first of two posts today is for the Throwback Thursday with Jo hope you can join in.This canvas I made a few years ago and it has been hung on our bedroom wall--now every morning I look at it and think I don't like that!!!It was my first attempt at a canvas and I didn't wait for the colours to dry in between each one so all merged into one beige shade!!!!

I finally got around to changing it and first of all covered everything in black gesso even that was an improvement-


Then I used a couple of Decoart sprays-


Finally added Cosmic Shimmer Gilding wax to edges and some of the embellishments--now I love it but daughter now has her eye on it!!!

Pimp A Matchbox

I came across an out of the ordinary challenge which I quite fancied having a go at --Pimp Your Matchbox--I have a couple of ideas and this is the first one -not one I planned but kept coming across butterflies sooo went with it.My matchbox is a household box which is just slightly larger than the usual box-12cm x 6.5 cms.
I covered the box in paper from £1 shop/the fancy die-cut borders are Tattered Lace/small black butterflies,brad pull,pearl feet from stash/the oddment on drawer front was from card embossed with TH-EF and wiped with black acrylic.The top butterfly was cut from sticky backed fabric and stuck onto black card for stability,the little butterflies inside were from google--hopefully I have time to make another couple.

The Eyes Have It

Morning and we have a new challenge at Stinkin Inkers-which is "The Eyes Have It." I made a journal page -the background is Aztec metallic paints(actually a page where I just wiped brushes when finished instead of wasting the paint)then marks were made with an old plastic card/bottle top/ruler and fine liner pen and white gel pen-the bubbles border is a rubber stamp I won a couple of months ago from Lost Coast Portal and the birds was a craft mag freebie-the eyes and glasses were actually errrm cough cough borrowed from my grandaughters and was with some marvel comic-so recycling too-could have done with a sentiment though.Just though it added a bit of sci fi to the page--what do you think lol???--Just agree with the crazy woman--and no harm will come to you and yours lol--(only kidding!!!)

Truth is------

Morning and I have two DT posts today the first one is for the Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving challenge at Love to Scrap and we are sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays who generously sent all the DT a stamp set.I received "Truth Is"- you get 3images and 9 sentiments.I loved these stamp and made two project the first is a card using watercolour cardstock and used Decoart Mists and Cosmic Shimmer mists but dripped onto wet card rather than sprayed,stamped the image and sentiment-die cut three leaves with Crafters Companion dies swiped with versamark and used 4 diferent mica powders.

I then made a tag with watercolour cardstock and used same technique and products but diferent sentiment stamps and a flower border also from the set-the edged stamp is a craft mag freebie and distress inked the edges.

Save the Last Dance For me

Morning and I have two DT posts today this second one is for Crafting With Friends and I made an anniversary card for my SIL and her hubby.
The B.paper is from The Works and I used a Martha Stewart border punch,the dancing couple is a Tattered Lace die stood in front of a die from The Works and I used the inside part with mirri card to look like a mirror,the white heart and twine is actually on the paper and the inside heart is part of a die from The Works,corners are peel-offa and sentiment was computer generated in Dafont.
