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!

Lesson 2 'I am dotty about...'

We should have put gesso on top of the book page but I didn't have any so used white ink instead. When it dried it was translucent but it managed to stop my di's drying on top of the page - nightmare!! Oh and if anyone knows of any decent white ink that stamps properly please let me know!

For a how to video follow the the link above - you will also see a much better journal page than mine but then Clare is teaching us!

Happy Saturday!

Your page is gorgeous Debs - the beauty of Art is that we create with the materials we have to hand. Not having Gesso meant you tried out something new and the result is fabulous ! I haven't had chance to do Lesson 2 yet, must make time to do it soon.

I can't tell that there is anything wrong with your page. That's the beauty of art- there is no right or wrong. Love the colour scheme the dots of course!
