Let Leonie loose - hot off the press

Good morning crafters, I hope you are well.

Not long before we return to freeview - phew. I know a lot of you have struggled to tune in, so it'll be good all round!

Yesterday was another LLL show, using some more stunning kits from hot off the press. I adore their stuff. The colours, designs, quality. It's all a joy to work with. Just in case you missed the show I decided to share a few samples here, and of course you can still grab the show on catch up via your computer.

This was using one of the cool peel offs in one of the kits. Peel offs arnt as popular as they used to be, but there are so many ways we can use them. For this card, I removed some of the adhesive and stuck it to my card. Using paint, I stippled over the top. When I was happy, I lifted away the peel off (which I then popped to the side to use later). The image looks really cool - and because these were 3 different peel offs, it allows me to build up different pictures.

I then peeled back the top protective sheet from a piece of double sided adhesive, and attached my peel off to it. Replace the protective sheet, and carefully cut out the peel off. 

Peel off the back of the adhesive short and attach to a piece of card. Now cover the sticky peel off with gilding flakes. Remove the excess - this does look really cool. For even more drama, use alcohol inks over the top!! 

Cool arnt they!

These are the ones I did on the show, using butterfly peel offs

Next week I'm back with my very own range of stamps and masks, so I'll share lots of different techniques then :)

Morning Leonie, These are fabulous!! I love how you have used your peel off as a stencil, I would never have thought to do that. I have dozens and dozens of peel offs, so I will be trying this technique. Thank you.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I have been playing with the word stencils - will let you know when they are on my blog. Still waiting for your stamps (I ordered from the "being made as we speak" lot from the telly show - so I know have to be patient) - so had to improvise - that is what messy crafting is about. So used Burst/pixie powders and tim holtz paint with new splatter brush. Now can you get together with Barbara Gray and bring out some more of these word stencils using her word chains as inspiration - hint hint Magical. Next is to play with your stencils and the gelli plate and the splat stamps and stencils I have.

I really loved that show. I'm so glad that you are of the same opinion as me with regards to peel-offs, so many ways to use them. I think it was our Carley Duff that said "There are no such thing as old-fashioned products only old-fashioned ideas, and you definitely proved this.

Creative Blessings, Tracy x
