Love Themed Painted Tealight Holders

Happy spring everyone! One of my favourite times of year, when the sun is shining more, new life is beginning (how cute are baby lambs!) flowers are in bloom, and everything just seems so much brighter. With this, and the forthcoming wedding season in mind I thought I'd share my most recent glass painting with you. I had a spare pair of glass tea light holders from Baker Ross, and still plenty of paint in my porcelain pens, so I decided to do a love theme. These could be given as a gift together, or individually, as one is more for married couples, and the other could be for married couples, or as a boyfriend/girlfriend gift.

Just two different items needed (well a few more if you count all the pens used), and then its just all about being creative. Painting on glass or already glazed ceramics is probably my favourite methods to use as you can rub anything off if you go wrong or get a bit too much paint on the surface. It will even come off after drying with a bit of work.

Check out the Baker Ross website for their full range of porcelain and paint pens, there are a large selection to choose from, including some handy black ones, and finer nibs. Do you enjoy painting, what is you're favourite medium to paint on/with. Let me know in the comments below.







 I painted a different image on each of the four sides of a pair of tealight holders, one had Mr & Mrs written on it, the other Me & You. All designs and photo's copyright These City Days 2016, please do not use of reproduce.

* I was sent these glass tea light holders in a blogger box as part of their design team/blogger network. All opinions are my own.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
