The big reveal.....

OK so you've be patient enough over the weekend with my sneaky peeks so finally here are the two projects I made using the Cleo Crafts April kit.
The kit really does have a fresh and zingy feel to it but it's very versatile as I hope I've shown in the two projects below. It lends itself to all kinds of different papercraft and altered art projects. I've used it to create a 12 x 12 LO and also an altered canvas. I like to make canvases as all too often I feel that the LO's I make get put into an album and that's that....but my canvases go up on the wall and in the children's bedrooms.....this one I think speaks volumes....Big sister taking little sister by the hand on her first day of school.....the photo says....'Don't worry, I'll be there to keep an eye on you' I didnt think that it needed any kind of title. I've used acrylic paints to cover the canvas and the effect was obtained by scrunching up some tissue paper and dipping it in the paint and then daubing it on the canvas, there are three different colours of blue on there as there are three different colours of blue in the photo if you look carefully. I used a punch to create the cardstock hearts......
Anyway, enough from me, if you're a kit subscriber and would like any instructions as to how I've made either or both of my projects with the April kit then please drop me a comment or an pm on UKS and I'll be happy to help.....
