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 6

I have been following Clare's lessons - from card making to art journalling and lesson 6 is about using oil pastels. - I bought some and then realised I didn't know what to do with them so asked Clare. We were to use die cut shapes and then add a silhouette focal point.

I thought I would use some chipboard letters to get rid of some unused stash - forgetting how thick they were compared to die cuts so I couldn't really put a silhouette focal point. I die cut some flowers and a heart to go with the sentiment.

I did think about throwing it away but there are no mistakes in art.....apparently.

Hope your Saturday is going well!
