Mystical week - Jane

Hi everyone,  
Hope you had a lovely weekend. 
How are you doing with your Christmas cards and gifts? Have you started yet?
Because Jane will inspire you today with this beautiful candle she altered. 

This week will be mystical.... Why? well... we have the Lavinia stamps in stock now... and we wanted to share a few ideas through different projects using those stamps. 
And you know us by now... It won't be "just cards"... be prepared for a full week of mystical Art Journal, canvases, upcycling and more... 

Here are some of the stamps Jane used... 






Ready? 
Here we go... 

ETA to share a brilliant tip that Laura suggested in a comment below: A neat way to use but preserve you candles is to burn it a bit until it's soft enough to scope out a small well. Then drop in a tea light candle and use your creation forever!


Christmas and frosty fairyland!
I decided to go with a decorated candle

Using a Speedball Brayer and ink pad, colour the tissue paper 

Stamp the Lavinia stamps as desired 

Gently heat the tissue paper onto the candle (I demonstrated this in a previous blog post) 

Add punched flowers and thin borders made with black card.  
Decorate with Liquid Pearls and Stickles 

Jane used:
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
White tissue paper
Liquid Pearls - White
Stickles - Crystal
Woodware punches - Mini Daisy, Regular Daisy

See you soon, 

Izzy

  3. This is so pretty...I have forgotten all about tissue paper on candles! A neat way to use but preserve you candles is to burn it a bit until it's soft enough to scope out a small well. Then drop in a tea light candle and use your creation forever!

  4. It's a gorgeous candle and a great tip about the tea light in the centre. Now I can use the candle I blinged up years ago without fear of ruining it.
