Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good Saturday!
This week at the Craft Barn we have been playing with gold leaf. I love this medium it's sumptuous and makes a project feel very special! After all it's a precious metal.
My card was made with metal leaf, red oxide and adhered with extra strong adhesive tape. That is a very easy way to get it onto your project fast and the lines are always straight. I used some sticky backed canvas and frayed the edges. Pretty colours from the acrylic paints

I made a box next. I stamped with Tim Holtz Book covers stamps onto acetate and added gold leafing to the stamped side of the acetate. I hope that will protect the stamping and gold leaf. The sentiment is stamped on the outside of the acetate just so that it reads correctly!!
So difficult crafting for chaps, I've said it so many times but I really struggle to make things they will use/like. This one I was pleased with, I really hope you like it too:0) Thank you so much for stopping to look! Gay x
