Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Balance Journal Page #2

Gesso'd page with neocolours and stamping over the top. Bit of doodling with a white paint pen.

Life is about balance

Be kind, but don't let people abuse you

Trust but don't be deceived

Be content but never stop improving yourself

More Circles

Another art journal page

Stencilling, neocolours , some stamping, a lid to create the circles then a mix of paint inside them. Words are Tim Holtz 'snarky' - Forecast for today; unproductive with a chance of a nap.

Art Journalling - Circles

I created circles with dylusions paint and used it again for stencilling. I stamped inkadinkado stamps and paperartsy stamps and used some glass bead glitter gel through a stencil. Finally I chose a quote I liked, printed it and went around it with neo colours crayons and a wet brush.

More 2018 Cross Stitch Finishes

This was going to be the year of finishes but I still ended up having lots of new starts...oh well!

I have had a Lizzie Kate theme going on ever since they announced their retirement - so sad to see them go as I love their charts!

Art Journal - Resonate

I enjoyed our last journal word challenge so we did it again!
This time I chose the word Resonate.

I started off with modelling paste through a stencil then used my inktense blocks to create drippage. They were not very vibrant so I added to them using my dylusion sprays. I added some music paper and some stamping and added the quote I liked. The word Resonate was stamped on tissue paper then glued down with matte medium.  I used my black neocolour around the printed text and used a waterbrush to create shade.
