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!

Another Moonshine Piece

From the online course by Effy Wild - Effy's piece was more green/gold/red but I had just won red and yellow pan pastels! I stamped bubbles with versamark ink and then went over the top with the pan pastels. Unfortunately I worked on my next piece the same day and the markers bled through slightly.

I thought it could do with a bit more so went back in with inktense blocks

Love these as you can get such a rich strong colour from them.

It reads

The moon, grown full now over the sea, 

Brightening the whole of heaven, 

Brings to separated hearts 

The long thoughtfulness of night…. 

It is no darker though I blow out my candle. 

It is no warmer though I put on my coat. 

So I leave my message with the moon 

And turn to my bed, hoping for dreams

Fab border. Inktense are great.

Awesome! Love the colours and of course geometric type borders really appeal to me.
