Everything is coming up Rosy!

Hello to you and as this is my first blog post going into the New Year,  I would like to wish you and yours a very Happy and Healthy 2017!
My project today is a "Scrapbook in a Tin". 
The idea came about just after Christmas when family had gone their various ways, I decided to pull out my box of moulds for something to do. I find doing this very relaxing, and in a short amount of time I had filled up many of my moulds with Paper Clay and Diamond Resin.

Here a just a few of the Moulds I filled with Paper clay. I do like using this as they are lightweight and easy to colour.

I took this photo just to show you what the tin looked like before I covered it. Just need to do something with the concertina paper inside now.

The first step was to stencil a background on the tin using one of IndigoBlu's stencils called 'Believe'.

Once the paste was dry I gave the tin a coat of White Gee-Soo-Good.

Very carefully I painted around all the flowers and leaves just painting the tin with Cinderella Paint.

Once the paint was dry I mixed up some different colours of the Luscious Pigment Powders, Rose Bronze, Green, Teal Blue, Silver and Porcelain and painted the Roses and leaves then dripped some of the colours top and bottom.
I then used StazOn ink, in Olive Green to highlight the stencil text using my finger.

I felt a sentiment was needed so stamped out one onto white card using the Olive Green Ink from the stamp set 'Butterfly Collector'

Thats all for today, please pop back soon as I am working on a Memory Jar which I will be sharing in the next couple of days.
Take care and Happy Crafting xx
