By The Sea


I love the sea, although sadly I do not see it very often, and then I only see it from a distance as unfortunately beaches are not wheelchair accessible, but at least I can see it for which I am very  grateful. 
With the sea in mind I created this 7x7  card. The background is from the gelli plate. I inked up the gelli plate and then placed the netting from some tangerines over the top, and it left this nice netty pattern. I cut some pieces of bark for the seagull to stand on, I must admit I don’t like seagulls as one of them swooped behind me last year and snatched my sandwich right out of my hands!  



I also added some art stones and few tiny shells, some stamped and some real.To finish off I wound some twine around the edge of the circle.

The stamps I used  are by Crafty Secrets.

Thank you for visiting today, have a lovely day. Hugs xx

Party Sheep




Hello how are you today? Sadly I have still not heard from the winner of the giveaway, I have posted on her blog and Facebook to no avail. If I have still not heard by Monday evening I will randomly select another winnner. I do hope that the winner Linda  is ok.

Today I have made a tag to tie around a gift for my sisters friends birthday. Oops I haven’t made the gift yet...... it is going to be a 3d picture in a frame. My sister and friends go on several holidays in the Lake District each year so I wanted to create  a country scene. The Crafty Individual Stamps are perfect for this.

As this is for a birthday the sheep of course had to be holding balloons! I used Watercolours for all of the colouring, and added texture with Flowersoft for the hedge and white Flowersoft for the sheep. I crushed up some Prima Art Stones to make the pathway. I finished the tag by tying on  several different shades of green raffia. 

Thank you so much for visiting today. Wishing you a happy, and hopefully sunny weekend xx

Drifting Into Autumn


It seems my hopes for an Indian summer are well and truly over, as we find ourselves drifting into Autumn.October is full of crisp golden leaves fluttering from the trees, so I decided to try and recreate that scene for my  Indigoblu project this month. I recycled some items, and foraged Mother Nature for other Autumn treasures.

A step by step tutorial is on the Indigoblu blog.

Thank you so much for visiting, and happy Autumn !
