Its Always the Small Parts......

 Hi Everyone, 

Today I'm over on That's Crafty's blog sharing a mixed media tag thats grungy and rusty but also a touch vintage thanks to a young chap called Samuel Everston who worked as a Trainee Manager in a mechanics workshop and was known to be a bit of a 'thinker'. 

 I've worked with a 'mash up' of products from various companies and designers including That's Crafty!, Stamperia, PaperArtsy, Ranger, DecoArt, Tim Holtz and Seth Apter. 

Heres a quick look at my tag.... 


.....and as its Easter  I'll also share a couple of closeups of the rusty grunginess 



Of course as always there's more to see and read on the blog so please feel free to pop by

Wings of Love!

Hi Everyone,

I don't know about you but I'm loving alot of the new released products that have been hitting our art/craft shops the world over recently. So much so that I succumb to bagging myself a few, some of which are the new AALL and Create washi tapes designed by Bipasha BK.
These, along with a beautiful PaperArtsy stamp designed by Sara Naumann are what I've used to create my 4x4 Art panel/art card that I am sharing today over on That's Crafty's blog.



I would love for you to come join me so if you fancy popping by just click HERE.

'What Time Is Love?"

 Hi Everyone 

Hope you are all doing good and keeping safe and well? 

Today, Im over on That's Crafty's blog in my regular DT spot sharing a mixed media Art Panel that I've created using That's Crafty! Tim Holtz and DecoArt products. 

Here's the story.... 
 ....A good friend of mine recently reminded me of the band 'KLF', who hit the music scene in the late 80's and apparently were the biggest selling singles band in the world in 1991! Well, one of their tracks "What Time is Love' has been playing on a loop in my head ever since! 
 
So, I thought I'd let it be the spark for my creativity and this is the result....

I'd love for you to come join me over on the blog where  there's more to see and read so if you fancy popping by just click HERE to be redirected.

Heart and Soul

Hi Everyone 

Hope you are all doing good and keeping safe and well 😊

Just a quick  post here  today to give you the heads up that  I'm over on That's Crafty's blog in my usual weekly spot sharing my latest piece of creativity which is a mixed media tag. 

I used all the usual arty suspects: mdf and white greyboard surfaces, paints, texture paste, stamps and stencils to create detail, texture, layers and dimension. 

A cracked heart sealed with a loving 'kiss' seemed like the ideal focal feature for my somewhat 'feminine' colour palette.

 
I'd love for you to come join me so if you fancy it just click HERE to be redirected.

A New Desk Tidy!

 Hi There Everyone 

As usual with it being Thursday I'm over on That's Crafty's blog.  

I have a 'useful' project to share with you today that I have created using some of That's Crafty's fabulous MDF surfaces and stamps. 

The project itself is a desk tidy that could be used to hold brushes crayons, pens or crafting tools to keep them close to hand while you are creating. 
Alternately, it could be used to keep any 'bits and bobs' nice and tidy in one place that maybe lying around the home. 
 

If you would like to find out how I created my desk tidy please come join me over on the blog.

Moon Burst ...

 Hi Everyone 

Just a short post today to let you know I'm over on That's Crafty's blog in my usual Thursday slot sharing some  of my latest creativity. 

The project I am sharing today is a layered mixed media art panel that was born from some leftover pieces I had lying around my desk from last weeks project ( see here) and some time 'well spent' gel printing. I say 'well spent' as I was pleased with all the prints I pulled, which all too often isn't the case! 

So here it is....

Thx at That's Crafty!

 Hi Everyone 

Happy New Year! to one and all 

Here in the UK we are back in Lockdown so maybe not the ideal or chosen way to kick off the New Year but with every negative there's a positive, right and that means that for us who are fortunate to enjoy creativity we can look to fill the 'lockdown hours' engaging in what we enjoy. 

So I've been back in my art space creating my latest DT project for That's Crafty! which I'm sharing today over on the blog . I've created a trio of Thank you cards in my usual mixed media grungy style using  a mix of That's Crafty!, PaperArtsy, Carabelle Studio and AAll and Create Products. 

Always room for a good 'mash up' in my creative world!  

Here's  a peek of 1 of the 3 cards I am sharing over on the blog today....


If you would like to see and read more about the creativity behind this card and the other 2 come join me.  
If you click HERE you can be transported over swiftly and safely. 
Really hope to see you soon
