Create & Craft, Letraset & a Woodland Frame...

Firstly, a little bit of news, it was confirmed today that I will be back on Create & Craft this Saturday with another Letraset Promarker show at 9am (yay!) I hope you can tune in and watch / record / email in - will try and cram in as much demo-ing as possible, I'm off to my studio later to start prepping, so any requests, just shout (or leave me a comment / send me a message, probably better!)

Secondly, one of the projects I was asked about most that was shown on last weeks shows was this Woodland Frame...
The frame was a plain wooden one from a homeware store, I lightly sanded it and then coloured with the Tawny Owl Promarker from the new Autumn Promarker set. When it was dry, I gave it a second coat and when that was dry I used a flexmarker to draw in the woodgrain pattern.
I then stamped the images (these are from the Woodland Folk range from Docrafts) onto bleedproof paper and coloured using the Autumn set of Promarkers and the Lime Twist from the Summer Set. 
I then used the Antique White Flexmarker to give a soft fuzzy effect to the little furry creatures (you may have seen me demo this technique on Create & Craft last week) 
Once the frame was dry I pieced everything together on a cloud sponged background, made with Distress Ink, with a freehand cut paper hill, using sticky dots and 3D foam / glue dots for dimension.

I think I covered all the questions I had but if you have any other questions about this project just leave them here and I'll do my best to answer them or add more details - if there are lots I might just show the answers on Create & Craft at the weekend :o)

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

  1. Cute frame Sarah. Love the badger with his hands on his hips. Was that in protest to the cull that has now been postponed?! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

  2. Such a cute project - love it :)

  3. This is adorable. What a great idea.

  4. Hi Sarah
    As someone who has a lot of promarkers and all the seasonal sets,is there anywhere I can look so that I know where the seasonal colours go between the standard propmarker colours?
    On the Letraset website it puts all the colours in order but does not include the seasonal ones.

    Thanks very much
