Calico Craft Parts DT Call Submission

This is a "look back" post at three projects which I feel really sum up my crafting style for my submission to the Calico Craft Parts DT Call (so please do not feel it is necessary to leave a comment!)

I suppose I would describe my style as shabby chic vintage and although I have chosen three 3D projects I also enjoy art journalling, scrapbooking and card design in a mixed media style.  I enjoy working with inks as well as paints and crackle paste is one of my absolute favourite products. I normally try and get a little bit in somewhere on the project! I love layering embellishments on my work which I enjoy altering in various different products.

I have an active blog and a fabulous list of followers who have always been very supportive. 

My three projects with the link to the original post on my blog:








Greyboard hanging, crackle paste texture, brayered paints, altered Calico Craft Parts Leaf and Metal, Paper Clay  Frame and Flowers.






Travelling in Vintage Style

Paper Mache Chest covered with torn Tissue Paper, inked, and crackled with DecoArt products. 








Altered wooden frame: Acrylic Chalk Paints, Crackle Paste, layered metal and
paper embellishments painted with Chalk Paints 
Butterfly: Metal covered with Chalk Paint and Distress Crackle

Thank you for visiting and looking at my work.

Fabulous pieces! Great choices - though it must have been so hard to choose just 3 as every piece you create is a real beauty .
Good luck xx
