Create & Craft ~ Pinflair

Happy Tuesday Everyone
What an exciting day ....Not only is it my Birthday.....but.......
I have been busy making some samples for todays show's on
Create & Craft for the lovely Jo from Pinflair
the shows are at 2.00 and 9.00
There will be a few posts from me today to show you what I made
and will start by showing you the wheelbarrow
I totally had a blast making all my projects I totally am in love with the Cartonnage kits
I wish in hindsight I had taken step by step photo's of this as at every turn and drop of paint I squealed a bit more , I really did not want to part with this so I am going to make one for me too

When I first saw this my vision was to build it with flowers across the top , it soon became clear this was not going to work to well.
I started off painting the body 
Once dry I added some stencilling.
 I then  used Pinflair Glue - It Bookbinding Glue (I used this for all my cartonnage makes) to put the body together
To get the rust effect (this is on the inside of the wheelbarrow too as some bits show)

I used Pinflair Rust - It Orange
Using a sponge to apply first and then dabbing it on , I loved this I wanted to give everything a rust effect, Using Pinflair Buff-It Slate to give it some colour
Using Pinflair Buff - It Liquid Black the wheels were painted

Once I had stopped faffing and it was all dry it was assembly time I was dreading this bit as it looked as if it may be tricky but it was soooo, so easy the instructions are so clear
I was so chuffed at this point I loved the orange so after much head scratching I came up with using sunflowers, I loved the idea but then I hit a major problem half way through making my sunflowers I ran out of Orange card stock, thank goodness for Amazon Prime!!

Sunflowers made , Bee's attached I made a little tag and a mini trowel to finish.
I do hope you will watch the shows there are really some stunning makes to be seen and of course some scrummy goodies
Thank you for stopping by today
