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!

Crafty Ideas Workshop

Yesterday saw myself and 3 other crafty pals heading to a mixed media workshop hosted by Crafty Ideas (used to be The Pink Tulip).

We were working on canvas and had this sample for inspiration

We used different techniques including stencilling, stamping, embossing and gilding foil.

The leaves are stamped and embossed on card, acetate and copper sheet. We used modelling paste through the stencils then sprinkled embossing powders over them. The picture was taken at Thoresby Hall a few years ago where we had a lovely week and fantastic weather.

Crafters at work!

Thanks for a lovely day ladies

It was great to catch up with you yesterday and to craft alongside you, Cherry and Wynneth too. Your make looks more finished than mine too, which is odd since I'm NORMALLY the speed of light crafter!!! Fab day out - we must do it again sometime soon

Happy Sunday
