Sheena’s Time Traveller

Alreet pet!

All of my time and money recently seems to have gone into the dreaded house move last month, so, when I finally had a payday that didn’t require me to put most of it straight into an estate agents pocket, I decided to treat myself to Sheena Douglass’ Time Traveller collection.

I was lucky enough to be a part of the launch of this collection at Hochanda, and I absolutely fell in love with it. The samples are incredible, and watching Sheena in action only made me want it more.

What’s more, is I really wanted to dip my toe further into the realms of mixed media. So, one rainy day during my week off work, I pulled out a canvas and went for it, and this is the finished piece:

I had a ridiculous amount of fun creating this project. I didn’t have an idea in mind at all when I started, it seemed to evolve as I went and I’m really happy with the results. The boyfriend loved it so much, he pinched it and it now sits proudly on his desk!

Sheena’s Day of the Dead

Alreet pet!

Sheena Douglass’ Day of the Dead range. Wow!

I deliberately rota’d myself to launch this show with Sheena on Hochanda a few weeks ago because I absolutely adore the range. It’s very quirky and off beat, quite like myself, so when I got it home I immediately started playing with it and this was the result:

On the same day I worked with Sheena, we had Hobby Art in too. And all I could think about was how amazing it would be to have a walrus looking a little bit shocked to see a dancing skeleton there! I loved the finished result so much that it now sits proudly on the windowsill in my living room so I can smile every time I look at it.

I look forward to seeing what other quirky makes I can achieve with this range!

List of items I used:

  • Sheena Douglass’ Day of the Dead range
  • Hobby Art’s Wilfred and Wally
  • Spectrum Aqua pens
  • Tim Holtz distress inks – ‘Barn Door’, ‘Spiced Marmalade’ & ‘Mustard Seed’
  • Spectrum Noir Coloublend pencils
  • Pebeo silver gilding wax
  • Centura Pearl black cardstock
  • Scrap piece of walercolour card from my stash
  • Frame from a cheap goods store
