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!

Spirit Wings Workshop - Angel of Sisterhood

I started with collage again and used a mix of paint and neocolours over the papers. This lesson was using gelatos. I started out with white and added pinks and peach.

I used neocolours and gelatos for the hair.

I added the features with a pitt pen.

I added the wings and the text - it reads ' You are the mirror to my truest potential'.

Spirit Wings Workshop - Angel of Courage

I collaged some paper on a canvas and drew a figure. I used paint and promarkers to get the flesh tones.

I used a pitt pen for the features.

Added hair, butterfly wings and used gesso to push back the background.

Added the quote and it's finished.

New Stash

Yesterday was a visit to Newbury for the papercraft show with the Purple Princess. There was only a small amount of stalls and some of them we didn't visit at all as they only had ribbon or card toppers. We both still came away with some stash though..

Other recent purchases some hand dyed fabric for cross stitch

and some bell pulls for finishing off smaller cross stitch projects

Hope you are doing something crafty this weekend
