Isn't she lovely.

I'm having the weekend off this weekend from all my committments so it's been nice to sit down and be able to do some of the things I wanted to do like updating my blog.

I completed this page for Mel Connell from Moulds By Mel. She makes *amazing* moulds that you can fill with clay, resin, beeswax and even hot glue to make amazing pieces.

Mel sent me a lovely birds mould, vintage button mould and two flower moulds. I have some more pages to come but I wanted to share this one of my gorgeous niece Chloe. I used the bird and vintage button mould. These particular ones I cast from Easycast resin which is also available from Mel's lovely shop.
I finished these pieces up with a goat of gesso and a white paint tinted with some Mint Julep Studio Calico Mister Huey's.

The actual page itself and background was inspired by Wilna Fustenberg's heART class. She covered a chapter on gesso, stitching and fabric, all of which inspired this page.
I loved her tip of covering die cuts and accents with a coat of gesso to tone them down a bit. I have done this on a few elements of this page, such as the background, the metal Tim Holtz wing and a few of the die-cuts.

Also we had the lovely February kit release this week for Polly! There are only a couple of left.

You can find these in the shop here.

I have some really exciting stuff on the horizon for the Polly! kits. I am super excited about it. You will want to subscribe to ensure that you don't miss out!

Much love. xx
