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!

May Birthdays

It was also my friend Kathys birthday and my Mums this month so here are the cards I made.

I also stitched a couple of pictures for my Mum but deleted the pictures of them framed....

(They both had the silver frame around them)

Hope you have crafty plans this bank holiday weekend

Let it snow

A finish - it was a freebie and didn't take too long to do. I will probably make it into a bell pull.

Hope you have a crafty week planned

Journal 52 - week 18

Week #18
Alternate Prompt ‘Purple’
Create a spread that celebrates ‘purple’ in some way.

I used my dylusion spray then stamped some flowers onto purple tissue paper and added some stamping. I added a quote which is a twist on the poem...when I am old I shall wear purpleI know one purple fan who will love this prompt!

Journal 52 - Week 17

Week #17
“Rise & Fall”
Create a spread about rising up or rising above or rising again. For bonus points, create a phoenix!
Alternate: “Fall”
Interpret any way you like.

I thought a rollercoaster fit the theme perfectly - you may fall but you will rise again.  I mixed clear gesso with aquatints over an image found online. I then used a stamp for the border.

Happy Birthday and well done!

It was my friends (Lauren) birthday on Monday and today she is on Hochanda twice for That's Crafty - well done you!!

I'm hoping she received these makes in the post!!

I love these teddies so much and couldn't resist stitching one for her birthday card.

This was a bookmark which came in cross stitch crazy and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to stitch it for Lauren as she is dog mad! I hope she likes it.

Good luck for your debut today and hope you had a great birthday!

Week #16
Alternate Prompt “Goals List”
Create a spread that explores a list of goals that you might have for today, this week, this month, or the rest of this year.

I haven't put loads on this as we have already had a similar prompt at the beginning of the year.

Forgot to post.....

my makes from craftathon!! 

my hatton box which still needs a handle..

I took 2 canvas' with me and Kathy kindly let me play with her distress crayons

Nicola's matchbox project - I put book pages and paint on it and decorated it with the embellishments I brought with me.  These included cheesecloth, sequins, gems and letter cubes. It reads dream big, aim high.

Hope you have a crafty week planned
