Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells…

Wow, December 1st has arrived and it’s time to start bombarding social media with Christmas makes!!  My work table looks like a bomb has exploded in my studio, seriously!! I have to vacuum the floor every day to pick up the glitter before the animals tread it through the house on their paws!

Last weekend I hosted a workshop for the Mozaik ladies where we made a Winter themed canvas. We had a wonderful day and I have to say it’s the first time everyone actually finished a project from start to finish so I’m hugely proud of all of them. 

I’ve been promising the ladies for quite some time now a mixed media canvas project and for one reason or another we’ve never quite taken it on. So I was determined this time to go for it and throw all sorts of materials and techniques at them and they really embraced the theme. Every one of them produced something wonderful which made me very happy.

As it’s the first of the month, that means a new WOW! Embossing Powders Facebook Challenge and the final theme of the year is Silver and Gold.

I brought out my favourite stamps, which I use every year without fail (everyone has their favourites), the script stamp is from IndigoBlu and the star is a wood mounted one from Stampers Anonymous and paired them with Metallic Silver and Atlantic Seaspray Embossing Powder from WOW!. 

Right now I’m crafting myself silly preparing for a Christmas Market where I’ll have a small stand.

Have a good weekend and I’ll be back soon.

Mini Album To Make You Smile

July is here and the weather is just glorious for the moment. I’m working outside as much as possible on our little shady terrace which has a wonderful view of the garden and endless inspiration for sketching, painting and planning.

I must have had a summer vibe going on when I made up this mini album. I’ll be taking part in a small hand craft market coming up in September so I need to build up some stock for my table. I’ll be selling photo albums and felt creations for starters. I’ve lots of other ideas in my head but it remains to be seen if I actually get around to making them a reality.

It’s also my piece for the WOW Facebook Challenge this month where the new theme is Embossing Glitter.
