Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

i tacked the riboon on useing double sided tape, then secured using head pins threaded with sequins and pearl beads

altered candle tilda magnolia

This is my first attempt a decorating a candle and it was really easy. i stamped the image using stazeon on to cheap tissue paper, coloured using watercolour pencils and placed against the candle. i then wrapped grease proof paper around the candle and pulled tight. i then heated using a heat gun for a few moments and there it was, brilliant. i added stickels glitter and glued some beads. well worth a try.

yay i did it whoop whoop

I cant belive i made a blog yay. Blogs have been a real inspiration to me lately. i have been making cards for two years and im now having ago with jewellery, altered art and scrapbooking. Maria from maria's cards has recently encouraged me to give stamping a proper go and im hooked. especially on tilda and sugar nellie.
