For this months LaLa Land Hedgehog Hollow Box I went all out! This week making a total of three projects and matching them to last weeks box project. You can get your own Hedgehog Hollow box here.
Using the Marvy Uchida watercolour pencils that were sent to regular subscribers, I coloured three hedgehogs. I used mostly the brown and black pencils, using the black to darken the brown tone . To carry through the British theme through to the hedgehogs I added some red and the darker blue to the hedgehogs accessories.
I worked on my card and canvas at the same time, I applied Distress Oxide inks the same way I had for the box. I used Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Black Soot. Wide washi tape was added to the bottom of both pieces to I could tie them in with the box too.
Next I used the LDRS Raven hybrid ink to stamp the images and sentiments. The stamps I used were Hedgehog Hollows Global Love and Sending Hedgehugs and Looking Sharp from LaLa Land Crafts. Again I used the same images of Big Ben, the bus and taxi to tie back to the box.
For the card and canvas I used foam tape behind the hedgehogs and sentiments. I turned the sentiments into banners by cutting a fish tail at one end. Under the hedgehogs little feet I used Kool Tak clear foam tape.
The envelope was the easiest piece to make as all I did was add the washi at the bottom and the third hedgehog with glue. I really hope you enjoyed this months projects using the LaLa Land Hedgehog Hollow Box. Go create some arty crafty alchemy yourselves and I’ll see you all later!
In today’s video I share with you a couple of small hauls from around my town and one sent to me from Victoria :). Luckily I have made a friend who helped me out when I was in a bind by sending me the Aldi Graphic Markers. You can check out her shop here. Unfortunately there were some issues with the delivery company. So it took a bit longer than it should have to get to me lol.
Why do I need so may clip boards? To help shoot colouring videos hopefully as you can see in this card I made. Still learning though and am thinking I may need to turn the board sideways so the angle better. Also one is for colouring on the go as I have started taking markers and stamped images with me when I go places. The stickers are just so pretty they had to come home with me.
Apparently I need a lot of cutters because I bought the mini Stanley knife set and the rotary cutter from Aldi lol. The rotary cutter is because I have 300gsm cardstock and I waste some because in order for it to fit I my paper trimmer I have to fold each sheet in half :(. Cheap washi is always good and good for happy mail I’m told :D. The mat I didn’t need but it’s a pretty blue. Purple would be even better lol.
My awesome friend Melinda sent me the Alcohol Markers so I could road test them :). So far they actually seem pretty nice. Not many blending colours but they were $1.08au a marker. There are other ways to blend like I showed in the video. In my package there were also some packets of awesome chipboard. I already have a card idea for the super hero masks :).
Hope you are getting some arty crafty alchemy on :). Bye for now.
Today card is a Lawn Fawn slider card with this months Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box. Throw in a DCWV Rainbow Splash paper stack and the Lawn Fawn Magic Slider dies and we are good to go! You can see me unboxing this months box here and you can get it here.
Trying to be more organised when I film, so I precut everything I needed and actually had everything for a change. There is a missing stamp about though! The Copics and Promarkers were even picked before filming, though I did need to find some more. Stamping on cardstock was done with alcohol marker friendly Memento and on the acetate with Stazon.
The Waffle Flower Sweet Ice Cream and Hedgehog Hollow Sweet Sentiments stamp sets were both used. Copics and Promarkers (see below) were used to colour. To create the mask I used a piece of paper, some fussy cutting and some Zig Two Way glue. Most of the colouring used two colour blends.
Ice Cream Combos – Promarker V735 and Copic C5, Promarkers G267 and G356, Copic B24 and Promarker B637, Copic R85 and R83, Copic E53 and E51, Copic E79 and E77, Copic R24 and R27 and some Glitz Sea marker Southern Ocean.
Mouse – Shirt – Copic YR18 and YR16 Bow Tie (cause bow ties are cool) – Promarker B637 and Copic B24 Mouse – Copic W5, W3 and W1 Cheeks and Ear – Copic R23 and R21.
That’s a lot of colours! If you watched to the end of the video you saw as well as using the Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box I also showed how to use stamps from this previous box and talked about how you could case your stash to get similar results :). I Hope you enjoyed this video and are doing some arty crafty alchemy yourself. Bye for now.
Today I received my channels first happy mail woo hoo 🙂 We, my kids son in law and I, also went shopping at Kmart, always dangerous. In the video I am also sharing my second Easter card from The Hedgehog Hollow Lawn Fawn February 2018 box. You can see my unboxing here and the other card you can see in this video here.
First up my lovely happy mail from Alexis and Melinda Art Space, you can find them here. They do arty crafty and mixed media type things :). In the package were an alphabet stamp set, a pretty Easter bag, an Easter card, and lot’s of Eastery die cuts. Thank you Alexis and Melinda!
Then I went to Kmart for 50% off Easter eggs and did a mini haul as well lol. Leaving the house is dangerous! Firstly I got some bargain Easter props for my channel for next year. Cute little metallic bunnies and a bunny jar. I also got some shredded paper for packing things nice and pretty or just adding volume to a box etc when needed. Lastly I got some notebooks for myself for you tube related things. There are notebooks here that I keep my video ideas and things in but I needed something to write out my card making process and other little things like my video intros! I find it helps to write them out before I film so I don’t fluff it up as many times lol.
Onto the Easter card made with The Hedgehog Hollow February box. Love the Lawn Fawn products and have just ordered a bunch more… Happy Easter to me! I used the Some Bunny stamp set for all the stamping and Copics and Promarkers to colour the images. From the box I used the Spring Sprig and Slide On Over Semi Circle dies as well as an Elizabeth Crafts Banner set. The sentiment is stuck down with Kool Tak clear foam tape so you don’t see it underneath. I used a very smooth button for the slider mechanism so it wouldn’t catch on anything and baby powder on the tape edges so it glides nicely.
