Pink butterflies

Over at Craftyboots it was my turn to pick the theme for this fortnights challenge and i chose pink butterflies. I did this because i had just ordered the amazing Papillion stamp from stamping up and knew that i wanted to use it for this challenge.

Please excuse the slightly blurred photo my hands are very shaky at the moment, must remember to drink more wine!!

Thanks for looking x

Upcycling challenge

A few weeks ago i agreed to take part in a challenge set by Lin.

All the participants were sent an envelope containing the same items and we were told that we had to use all of it but could add items from our own stash. We were also told the project had to be in just one shade of colour and we were provided with a list of colours to choose from, i am sure everyone expected me to choose pink for my projects but when i looked at the mediums i had i realised that brown was the colour that gave me most shades, i also knew that i wanted to use one of the projects for a Fathers Day gift.

Thanks for looking.

I was set another challenge by Sam to use blue, a bird and some script in a project and this is what i came up  with.

The birds are actually blue in real life and made out of shrink plastic.

Tims June tag

Hi all,

I ma spending a couple of days at my friend Sam's house and first on the list of things to be made was Tim's June tag.

Here is my attempt, it may have a few extra additions such as teeth mark courtesy of Sam's dog Fraz who clearly wanted to be included in the crafting fun so stole my tag and wouldn't let it go.

We also played with some memory glass which I learnt is just a posh term for a microscope slide!

Finally I had a lesson in blending Paperartsy paints.
