Cards from Craft Expo 2015

I'm posting some cards today that I made during the Craft Expo back in June this year. I did a number of classes with the gorgeous, talented and funny Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door. She's been a favourite of mine for a long time and I look forward to learning from her each year.
(Sorry Rachel that it is such a bad photo. But at least we can't see my wrinkles!)  :)

The three cards above are from a class I did with Rachel that dealt with painted Backgrounds. We used Dylusion Paints, Dina Wakley Media Paints and Perfect Pearl mists to create multi-layered cards. You may not be able to see it in the photos, but the backgrounds have been sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists and are just gorgeous in their sheen. The Dylusion Paints are also tremendous with the vibrancy of their colours and the amazing coverage, A little goes a long way and you don;t have to worry about recoating as one layer has plenty of depth to it.

I loved the layering with brayers, stencils, background stamps etc that makes these cards look so amazing.

The card I gave to my husband for our anniversary was also from this class.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards from the Expo.

Bye for now,



  1. Beautiful cards! Love the background!!

    1. Thanks Marisa. Rachel is so talented and a natural teacher so it was easy to create something so good. :)

  2. These cards are all fabulous Janelle! Looks like you had a blast, I only wish we could have caught up, hopefully soon...

    1. I'd love to catch up soon. It's been too long with us saying, "We must ..." :) I know with you working it is difficult.

      BTW, I love your cards in the latest two editions of ACS&P - so gorgeous. :)


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
