Refresh your Craft and Soul - The little things







 Hello and welcome from  Jacky's   blog, or if you have just come straight here then check out the start of the blog over at www.jennifergracecreates.com .   Jennifer invite me to her Refresh your Craft and Soul blog hop and it marks a weekend of lots of giveaways, inspiration and fun over on her blog so do check it out.

So with the theme being refreshing and cleansing I went with an outdoors shot of my son amongst the bluebells (we love a cycle into the woods when they are out and to snap a few pictures).  It's just a little favourite moment and I tried to keep the page really simple.  I started with some blue gelatos on the white card stock making some swirls and then I used a water brush to blend it all in.  It wasn't quite the right blue for me so I think added some blue patina glimmer mist over the top, and some flicks of dark blue cosmic shimmer mist as I love the sparkle....I even added some more golden sparkle which is another glimmer mist...so there is lots of subtle sparkle there.  I went with just one sheet of patterned paper - it's by MME and I distressed the edges, then used a prima wooden square (again quite simple but goes with the wood theme).  If you follow my blog you'll know that a while back I was sent some air- dry clay by Baker Ross and made some ornaments - for this one I use a heart cookie cutter, and then a small circle cutter to make the main shape, then a wood grain acrylic stamp and some alphabet stamps to add the texture and word.  I then painted it white and picked out the word 'Love' in silver, adding some blue ribbon.  The only other items I added was a sticker by Simple Stories and then a few gems from Hobby House, the alphabet is a thickers set by American Crafts.....and then I stopped there...trying to keep it simple.
