Joined in Crafters Companions Forum live craft evening this week.
We don't know what we are making at the start, and just have a basic list of supplies to get ready.
We then follow Ellen's instructions and photos of each step until we have a finished card.
We all chat as we are going along each step its a fun evening

The papers and topper are from MCS Glam 50 CD, The matching envelope was made using the same papers and a Transparent envelope image from Paper creator put together in the MCS program

Purple illusion necklace

Well Got the Bug back and did another one as I had all the tools and bead boxes out, This one is Purple Jasper and Amethysts chips with some silver beads and toning glass beads thrown into the mix

Not a great Photo light is pretty poor here today, none stop rain and dark clouds.
But very pretty up close.
please see the black and red one in the post below

Floating Necklace

Treated My self to a shopping spree got some black grey pinstripe trousers  and also picked up  a black Jumper to go with them.
So this morning got out my beads and made myself a floating necklace to wear.
I was planning in making it all black and gold but somewhere along the making plan changed and I ended up popping in these red and black speckle stones that I have had in my stash for awhile 
 I did not want it to be a heavy looking full beaded necklace so that why I went for the floating bead look.
Its so light when it on you don't notice it, I hate the feel of heavy necklaces

WOYWW time Again

Its WOYWW time again.
If you would like to join in pop over to Stamping Ground and join in, or just have a little nosey at other crafters desks
 Well bot of mine are a mess today, In the top photo I have been making Handmade roses.
Ready to go on and Altered frame that you can just see to the side.
Oh can also see grandsons baby alarm sitting at the back.
Photo below is the mess from yesterday crafting session.
I had finally gotten around to altering my ATG gun.
Use Plati-kote paint £5 A tin and some glitter Stickers.
So easy and I love it.
See the post below for better photos.
So girls with the nasty yellow guns get some paint bling it up , I would love to see what you do

Thanks for stopping by
Off to shower then I will be visiting Some of your blogs

Altered ATG GUN

WEll as you know from my previous post last year I got myself an ATG gun, and I love it, saving myself a small fortune on buying the smaller tape pens.
The only thing its not very pretty in it original colour.
I have been reading blogs and watching you tube videos, seeing  all you clever crafters alter your guns, so decided to have a go myself
 So I got me a tin of Plasti-kote and had a play.
First I needed to take out the inside reels and tape up all the workings with masking tape, 
then I was free to spray.
I have seen so many pink guns that are all stunning, so for mine I went for this pretty blue shade

 The clear back of the gun I did not spray, i liked it se through, but later on i did go over it and the rest of the gun with Crafters Companion iridescent sparkly spray.
The peel offs are Anitas glitterations 
So the photo below is the back view

Here you can see it a bit closer up, Sorry the all over glitter is not showing up to well in the Photo, but it does sparkle so nicely when the sun catches it
This is how it looks from the front with all the nasty Yellow covered up.
I added my Name with Gen stickers, then some more of the glitter stickers.
Then I could not help but bling it up a bit by hot gluing some more gems, to frame my name and as centres to some of the flowers

 more close ups.
Just love the swirl stickers
 I did tape up the trigger very well put lots of painters tape on it, but you know paint some still managed to seep through, so still working with paint thinners to clean it up a bit
 Another close view of the back
So I am very pleased with the finished result; and have been putting off doing it all for months, but it was easier than I thought.
Just one bit of advice, Do 3 thinner coats rather than one thinker one.
It does build the colour up nicely, And always put Extra tape on that trigger.
Saves you having to remove the seeped pain.
Thanks for looking
Please leave a comment as I would love to know what you think

Double Twisted Easel Card Instructions

Here is a Double Easel Card, on a forum I belong to someone asked how it was made.
So I did a simple instruction sheet
 First cut your Base card into 8X8 inch Square
Then fold in half

 Measure 4 inches from one side along the top, cut down to the fold line see photo

 Then you score from corner to corner ,and fold each side as in the photo below, I have added some pattern card so that you can see how it fold better

Then you add double sided tape to the edges, where I have marked in green

You then take your base card and cut two 4x4 inch square toppers.
 you take your toppers and add them one on each side as in the photo 

Then when you fold your card back up it will look like this
All you then need to do is decorate each side.
Please keep checking as you decorate, that your embellishments are the right way up, as they will look different when folded into position
 Here are some close ups of the finished card
Papers are from papermainia Blueberry Hill
Topper is a download from Funky kits
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Punches are Martha Stewart
Image coloured with Promarkers
