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!

DLP Week 4

January Theme
The Blank Page and How to Face It!
January 24
Art Challenge:  Writing
Journal Prompt:  Words with Friends


 I saw this idea on a tutorial by Effy Wild - I wrote a letter to my best friend who unfortunately passed away from leukemia several years ago. I wrote in watercolour pencil and the gesso'd over it to cover/smear the writing.


I had some offcuts of Tim Holtz tissue paper lying around so used matte medium to stick them down and  scribbled with my neocolour crayons.


 I added more scribbles and added water then scraped some white paint around to push the colour back.


I added stamps, circles and a tag with 'Just Listen' on it as sometimes the biggest part of being a friend is doing just that.

Hope you are well and the weather isn't too bad where you are!
