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!

And to all a good night

This is a design by Lizzie Kate and it's stitched on 14ct rustico aida. I will probably make it into a cushion as I think it may be too big for a bell pull - that means fabric shopping YAY!

Spirit Wings Workshop - Angel 1 - Angel of whispers

I decided to do Kelly Rae Roberts Spirit Wings Workshop, my friend Debbie had already done it but wanted to do it again. I spent a lovely morning yesterday watching the tutorial and crafting along with her. The medium she uses for the first angel is oil pastels. I have to say they are not my favourite but I managed.....

We started out with collaging papers and gesso'd over the top then drew our angel.

I used a mix of yellow brown and peach to get a skin tone.

Then worked on shading.highlights.

Added colour and features.

Added hair and Kelly Rae;s signature white dots.

And finally here dress, wings and sentiment.

As she is whimsical, it was much less pressure to draw the features - I really enjoyed creating this and hope to be doing the next one soon!
