Infusions Take 2

It crossed my mind that I said I would share a few more of my infusions experiments a couple of weeks ago so here they are.

First a tag using metallic glaze with Emerald Isle and Black Knight infusions for the background.

Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge : March

Here is my entry for the Craft Barn Twelve Month challenge for March.

The verse from Sara Coleridge's poem is :
March brings breezes loud and shrill
Stirs the dancing daffodil.

The challenge for this month is mad hares and daffodils. The first thought that popped into my head was the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland, no surprises for me as I am an Alice fan. So, whatever I did, I wanted my March Hare in it.

I didn't really have a plan when I started so I stamped the hare onto white card and coloured him with inktense pencils and cut him out. Since he needed to be somewhere, I created a background with Stampscapes stamps to make a pathway with tufts of grass. To add the daffodils I used an old wooden block stamp from my stash called Three Daffodils by Hero Arts and made them "dance" into the picture along the border.

I have also finished off the cover for my mini book for these pages to live in when I complete the twelve month project, also a motivation to make sure I do finish it. Here is my book cover:

I used a Sizzix Thinlits die by Lori Whitlock to make the pages and the covers plus the little embellishments on the cover. The papers are from my Tim Holtz wildflowers paper pad.

I am having lots of fun with this project and love seeing what everyone else comes up with too, there is so much talent out there. 
Until next time, thank you for dropping by. x

Talking of infusions,  I was having a little play with them yesterday. Here is an ATC that I made using Infusions with PaperArtsy metallic glaze. I am pleased with that effect, in fact, I was so pleased with it yesterday I made more things. I will post them on my blog later.
