Canvas


This is my first ever attempt at a canvas!  I had this plain white canvas for months and never quite dared to get started, but decided one day to go for it!
I applied a layer of gesso to the canvas, and overstamped a range of patterns, flowers etc with both Archival and Distress inks. I added various cut out dies, wooden embellishments, paper flowers, pins and even a bit of lace.  To the die cut in the middle (which actually covers up a bit of a mess I made!) I added some frantage which adds dimension and sparkle.  Actually this iphone photo doesn't do it all justice as the colours are subtle and pretty.
I'd really love some feedback on this and would welcome any comments!

Christmas angel


A simple card, made using a favourite rubber stamp. I stamped it onto plain white card, and again onto the patterned paper (free in a magazine). I then cut out her dress and adhered it to the image printed on the white card, and then mounted it. Added some sparkle to her wings, and a touch of colour to her cheeks. A simple sentiment completed this little card.

I think I have finally sussed out blogger too - phew!

Christmas tree

Another card made for a friend who loves purple! I used my favourite Inky Doodles stamp, and coloured with Promarkers, adding a bit of sparkle with a Gelly Roll pen. Quick and easy!

A crafty corner


Until I dust off my camera and take some better photos of cards I've made, I thought I'd share a small corner of my crafting space with you. 
My shelves (above my desk) were such a jumble of bottles and pens (love my Promarkers!) I felt a good tidy up was long overdue.  Having learned how to make boxes at my card making class a couple of weeks ago (and they are so easy to do - should have tried a long time ago!)  I made a few small ones to house some of my crafty stash. Not content with a few box bases, I punched out some flower shapes to decorate the fronts, so that I could write on a simple label.
My craft room is still a work in progress, but at least I can see my desk and have a working space again - and it has been such fun rediscovering all sorts of crafting goodies :)
