Leigh SBDesigns Guest Designer - March 2022

 I recently took part in LeighSBDesigns Gothic Valentine's Hop and was delighted to be a winner!

These were my makes:

I was also top three in the February Challenge 'Let Love Bloom'

Find out more from Leigh over on her blog - she has March Challenges to join in with...

Leigh also asked me to be a Guest Designer so I used one of my all time favourite images to make a journal page in my grey paged Strathmore 21 by 28 cm journal...

The image is Carved Skelly Cat which I printed on pale orange tissue.
I tore it out (helped by painting around it with a wet paintbrush) and used gel medium to stick it down. I also added some pieces of book paper.

To the background I added acrylics in blue/greens and then white, black and grey through stencils.

I stamped a script stamp (Finnebair Messy) in black archival and a circle stamp Crafter's Companion Splats and Stains) in white paint.

I painted the cat in Gelatos and water to make a watercolour effect, adding Stabilo All around the outside. I painted the border of the page in black acrylic and then added the sentiment in black and white Poscas.

There are no ordinary cats. Colette.

Happy Crafting!
