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!
October Theme Translucent Papers October 17 Art Challenge: Vellum Journal Prompt: Sheer Genius
Although DLP has finished for 2015 and restarted for 2016 I am still going to complete the prompts that appeal to me - I see no point doing a prompt if it doesn't inspire you (glassine envelopes? or maybe that's just me??).
Vellum put through my bug with a embossing folder
Vellum lifts up to read 'There is no great genius without some touch of madness' which apparently is a quote from aristotle, but it's off the internet so it could be anybody's......
Week #1: “Word Of The Year”
Spend some time reflecting on your word of the year (if you’ve chosen one), and create a spread that expresses that word.
I used dylusion sprays for the background and then dylusion stamps and paints for the leaves. I stamped in versamark and used clear embossing powder to create an area I could paint inside (thanks to Vicky P for this tip). I also used dylusions stamps for the wording. I wonder if I should outline the leaves to make them stand out more?
Happy New Year everyone - hope your new year is starting off well!
Very few crafty gifts this year...
Fabby gift from my secret santa
I have been doing a gratitude journal for 2-3 years now, I try to fill it in every day but it doesn't always happen. It is also nice to remind me what was going on in my life at that time - at a time when work was awful the recurring theme was 'got away from work on time' or 'thank god it's friday!'.
I have made a start on this years journal - I was hoping to have it all set and ready to go for the 1st but that didn't happen...
Oh well hopefully will have it sorted within the next few days - feeling craft starved as we have guests but that is another thing I should be grateful for.
