We’re delighted to have Georgie C back once more to lead us out….
Georgie C - Little Blue Craft Box
Hi everyone :) I am so honoured to have been picked for a Top 3 win, and to have the chance to guest design for the blog again. I live down in Dorset with my husband, two year old son and two dogs. I also work in IT (I know, yawn...), so any spare moment I can find I will spend it with inks, paints, pens… you name it, whatever I can get my hands on. Starting now to try and get my little boy mixed up in this world too, haha let the mess begin...
I was so excited to hear the choice for this months challenge as I’m sure you will be too, Bugs, Bees and Butterflies. My piece, 'The Keeper’, is designed to be like a cover of an old antique book with an air of mystery and wisdom about it. Please hop across to my blog if you would like more detail on how I created it. I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with... :) xx
It is a pleasure to be joining the Country View team and what a fantastic topic for me to start off with. I have used the back of a canvass to create this 3D piece featuring lots of butterflies. It is an adaptation of the Tim Holtz tag from September. It would be lovely to see you over at A2A - Addicted to Art where there are more details and photos.
Given the choice to use any or all of Bugs, Bees or Butterflies, there's probably no surprise about which one of the trio I went for with my creation! I used one of the backgrounds inspired by one of Tim's tags from earlier in the year, and the French Flight Framelits to create this tag. Come and see more over at Words and Pictures.
I decided to make a wall panel, using some of my favourite stamps and techniques. The central panel is a piece of paper from the Wallflower paper stash by Tim Holtz. To see the details of how I put this together, please visit my blog.
Butterflies have a very special place in my life and I love using them on my projects. So I decided to make myself some 3D butterfly embellishments and a place to keep all the wonderful little sizes of butterflies that can die-cut from Tim's Butterfly frenzy strip die. You can find all the process steps on my blog Bumblebees and Butterflies, which also fits very nicely with the theme lol
I love this theme! So many of our crafting designs comprise at least one of these three things, it made it an easy task. I’m hoping that lots of our followers will follow suit, get busy and jump in to join us this month!
For a run down on the products etc, you can find more here at My corner of Heaven. xxx
Hello to you all I have a tag to share today and I have used Butterflies. You can get full details of how this was made on my blog.
It's November already! Where is this year disappearing to?! This month's theme makes me think of summer days - a real change from the increasingly cold rainy weather outside my window! So for my first piece this month I chose to go back to my square journal and use the fabulous bee die from Mr Holtz. The wings have a thin layer of Glossy Accents on to give a subtle sheen. As always, more can be seen on my blog x
As a great lover of butterflies I have made a plaque using two of my favourite butterfly stamps and one of my favourite combinations of Distress Colours - Evergreen Bough and Vintage Photo. There are more details on my blog if you want to know more.
I included all the three B's in my project as that was what I thought the brief was...Ha, well it worked out okay as I made a little mini book telling you all about them. More on my Blog.
I decided to have a play around with some bees wax for my first piece for this months challenge. There's also some Brusho's in there which is my new 'must have'. Full details can be found here at Sue The Iron.
All that remains is for us to wish you a fabulous November and hope to see your project(s) very soon!
