About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

More Mixed Media December challenge - optional white

More Mixed Media December challenge - anything goes with optional white - use a little or a lot
http://moremixedmediachallenge.blogspot.com.au/

I made this canvas in a class at Mad For Markers in December 2016 but kept the photo to use on my blog for this challenge.

Add triangles of dictionary paper coming out from a central point of the canvas.  Then give a thin layer of gesso over the top.
Place mask of the text O Holy Night on the canvas where you want the words to be.
Using blue, purple and black paint, start with the lightest - blue in the middle and then add paint around in circles alternating colours around the whole canvas.
Once the whole canvas is painted and had time to dry (use a heat gun if you want to speed up the process) peel off the mask carefully.
Painted over the words and painted stars around the canvas.
Added dots with left over paint.

I hope you will go over to More Mixed Media and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add my canvas to the following:

Christmas card club - mixed media for Christmas

Mary picked the theme for this fortnight for the Christmas card club - mixed media for Christmas

This was a challenge for me.  I have done some mixed media on journal pages but not usually on cards.


I stamped Stamp It stamp Kings of Orient onto white card.   I have had this stamp for many years.
Painted background with black gesso and burnt sienna acrylic paint.  Painted over star stencil with moulding paste.  Added glitter and glitter pen to large star.  Added dots of glitter.  Printed precoloured holly leaves from We are 3 Holly Leaf with berry printable.  Added red pearls.  Doodled with white gel pen.

 If you would like to see the cards made by the other members of the Christmas Club their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog.

I would like to add my card to the following:
