'Make Art Possible'

 Hi Everyone and Welcome 

Apologies for being MIA for a few weeks but 'rain stopped play' for a while so as this is my first post of 2022  I'll start by wishing 
'Happy New Year' 
to you all!

`Hope your's has been kind to you so far! 

***************************************

So my first post of this year is only a 'heads up' kinda post to let you know I'm over on That's Crafty's blog today sharing a grungy journal page that I've created with some of the usual suspects: paint, texture paste, stamps, stencil, washi tapes. 

I had no preconcieved ideas/ plans for the page it was very much a case of going with the flow, following my creative muse and enjoying getting painty and inky again. 

Here's the resulting page 'Make Art Possible'  


If you'd like to read more about my creativity and see some close up pics showing the layers / detail/ texture you're welcome to come join me over on the blog. 
if you click HERE you're on your way. 
Hope to see you soon

Holiday Wishes

 Hi Everyone, 

It's my last post of 2021 over on That's Crafty's blog today as the Design Team take a Christmas break from the 19th December so I'm offering you all some 'Holiday Wishes' in the form of a mixed media wintery snowflake tag. 


The tag's focal feature is a dimensional textured snowflake that has a touch of sparkle. 
 It's set against a cool blue background of snowflake flurries. 

There's more to see and read over on That's Crafty's blog so if you fancy joining me just click HERE. 
Hope to see you soon

Trees!

 Hi Everyone, 

Today I'm over on That's Crafty's blog sharing some cards that I've created with KatzelKrafts 'Winter Wonderland' stamp set and Tim Holtz Distress and Distress Archival inks. 

The cards are CAS in design, minimal in products used, super quick and easy to make so they can be   produced on mass in a short space of time. 

I'm not calling them 'Christmas' cards per se as I think the overall design lends itself to several occasions. 
As well as Christmas cards I think they would also be suitable to send to anyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas that you still want to send greetings to at this time of year. They could be given as autumn/ winter birthday cards, Thank you cards for seasonal gifts, New Year cards or general note cards - just a few ideas!

Here's just a few of the cards ...


and some tags too.

'Winter'

Hi Everyone and Happy December! 

So,the Christmas countdown has officially begun and although slow getting started my christmas card creativity is in full swing now.  So today I'm over on That's Crafty's blog sharing one of the latest cards I've created.  

It features stamps from katzelkraft's 'Winter Wonderland' stampset and Tim Holtz products. 


I love this long slim tree especially against the moonlit starry sky ....


...... and so pleased the cute young boys all wrapped up warm hung around for their photo taking after they'd been playing in the snow.
