A Bit More Sheena

Afternoon folks from a very wet and soggy Yorkshire. I just got my car washed just before the rain came... maybe that's what brought it. My Mum always used to say that cleaning the windows made it rain!!

As I haven't been very crafty lately and I've enjoyed all three of Sheena's programmes today I thought I'd share a few more of the samples I made for her.

If you've been watching you'll recognise this first one, although it didn't actually make an appearance. Sheena did an amazing canvas on air which she very kindly said had been inspired by this. I have to admit I LOVE what she did with hers and will definitely be trying adding torn book pages as a background.

The sunflower was just very loosely painted with the acrylic paints and then over stamped with versamark and gold embossed.

This one was my favourite of all the samples I made. I love making these hangings and the daisies are my favourite Paint Fusion stamps so it had to be my favourite didn't it? The background was done with all sorts of acrylic paints and distress inks and stamped with the Ageing Beautifully set.

The paper daisies were cut from a Sissix die I had forgotten all about.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your week is going along smoothly.



Beautiful work Lisa - love the daisy wall-hanging. I watched some of Sheena's programme this am.- all the samples were fabulous, and it was interesting to see various paint techniques coming back into card-making.

Hugs, Sylvia xx

Hi Lisa
I love these pieces the sunflower ones are my fav I love the depth to them all the layers and then the over stamping with the gold. The daisy hanging gives a lovely spring feeling so pretty.
I had to tape Sheena today but have managed to watch two shows.

Beautiful canvases and wall hanging Lisa.I think the daisy stamp is probably my favourite 'fusion' stamp too - probably because I can manage that one. I managed to watch all three shows today - and still get a fair bit of other stuff done too.
