Encore Post 2a: Looking back at my That's Crafty Projects

 Hi Everyone, 

I'm back today with my second 'Encore Post' sharing some of the many projects I created for That's Crafty! while I was on their blog DT. 

I mentioned in the first Encore post: 'Looking back at some of my That's Crafty! Projects' that I'll share my projects in 'collections' of 3d projects, art panels, tags, cards etc on separate posts so as not to have one excessively long post.

The posts will primarily be project photo posts with dates and links to the post where I first shared them. Feel free to click through the links to see and read more about the creativity behind each of the projects.

******************* 

 So, with some of my 3d projects already shared (here) todays all about some of the mixed media Art Panels I created.
I made loads of these so I've decided to split them into two 'sub collections' shared over two posts. 
The larger art panels will feature on this post, the smaller on the next post.

Let's get started and if you'd like to find out which of my art panels is my favourite and infact my absolute and ultimate favourite of all the projects I created while on That's Crafty's DT be sure to stay with me until the end. 

Be True 
(November 2018)
 

(January 2019)


(January 2020) 

(June2020)


(July 2020) 


(January 2021)


(February 2021)


(September 2021) 


And here is my absolute and ultimate favourite....

(September 2020) 



I hope you have enjoyed looking back with me at some of the larger Art Panels I created whilst designing for That's Crafty! and that you will join me later for the second part of this post that will feature some of my mini Art panel creations. 
 See you again soon
Hugs

'Encore' Post 1: Looking back at my That's Crafty! projects

 Hi Everyone 

As yesterday saw me sharing some creativity over on That's Crafty's blog for the last time I thought I'd look back through all the projects I've created for That's Crafty and share some of them with you as 'Encore' posts here on my blog. 

There were alot of projects to choose from as I made and posted pretty much every week for approx 3 and a half years (give or take any time off for illness and the DT Christmas/ New Year holidays) so I've  decided to group them together in collections of 3D Art, Art Panels, Tags and Cards/ Journal pages  

Each collection will be shared on separate posts throughout the coming days so it doesn't make for one exceptionally long post.

The posts will primarily be project photo posts with dates and links to the posts where I first shared them. Feel feel to click through the links to see and read more about the creativity of each of the projects. 

So, let's get started with some of the 3D projects and I have to say I really enjoyed making these and all of them have either been in use or on display in my art space since the day they were made.

(November 2019) 
This was created for That's Crafty's 3D Challenge feature that was in the June 2019 edition of The Crafty Stamper magazine. 


(July 2020)  
I designed and created this project using some of That's Crafty's craftyboard tags, chains and white/ greyboard hearts along with Tim Holtz 'Abandoned' papers.  


(July 2020).  
I designed and created this using some of That's Crafty's surfaces, long tags, bookmarks and letters along with Tim Holtz 'Abandoned' papers.   


(January 2021) 
This was created with one of That's Crafty 's mdf ATB's and some of their stamps. 


(March 2021)  
This was created with a That's Crafty! mdf Cabinet and Seth Apters Aladine Izink Ice.  


And  I couldn't share my That's Crafty 3d projects without including my latest two.

(March 2022)  
This was created with a That's Crafty! mini box and Stamperia 'Artelier des Art' papers.


(March 2022) 
This was my 'leaving' project created with A That's Crafty! mdf ATC Chunkie. That's Crafty stamps and 13Arts 'His and Hers Remastered' papers. 

I hope you have enjoyed looking back with me at my Thats Crafty! 3D projects and that you will join me next time for my 2nd 'Encore' post when I'll be sharing some of the many Art Panels I created, posted and shared at That's Crafty! 
See you again soon 
Hugs

Believe

 Hi Everyone, 

Sadly, today sees me sharing some creativity over on That's Crafty's blog for the final time so I would like to start this post by saying an extra big thank you to Laura and Graham for the opportunity. It's been an honour and a pleasure to design for you and be part of the weekly blog team for the last 3 and1/2 years.  

Thanks too to the talented blog design team who I've worked alongside and to all you lovely people who have stopped by here and at That's Crafty!  to see and read about my creations and for all your kind comments and support. 

I'm still going to be around on the art and craft scene making, blogging, sharing doing what I love and whatever comes next so I would love for  us to stay connected so we can enjoy our creative journeys together. 

                            ***************************************************  

Now for my leaving project. 

I have created a mini 'Art Block' using one of That's Crafty's fabulous mdf surfaces - an ATC Chunkie, a That's Crafty heart and 13Arts papers designed by Olga Heldwein.  


Papers are used throughout the project, even the focal multi winged butterfly resting on the heart.


Thin strips of paper embellish the 'legs'.
 

Aswell as the feature on the top of the Art Block.


 I would love for you to join me over on That's Crafty's blog for one last time (just click HERE
 Hope to see you soon

A Flip Top 'Art Quote' box.

 Hi Everyone, 

I'm over on That's Crafty's blog today sharing some of my latest creativity -a flip top 'Art Quote' box 

I have a 'bit of a thing' for small 'arty' storage boxes and I really enjoy making my own. I've made a fair few over the years and all are still in use today.  I've shared some of them on my blog here, here and here

So I thought I'd make another using one of That's Crafty 's small MDF boxes, some papers from Stamperia's 'Atelier des Art' collection and one of Tim Holtz ideology trim tapes. 

Each of the box sides features an ' Art Quote'.


The box has a flip top lid to which I added a decorative feature that would also serve as an alternative way to lift the lid other than flipping it. 


There's more to see and read over on the blog so you are welcome to click HERE to join me.
 Hope to see you soon 
Amanda
