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

Cute as a Button - August challenge - Back to School

Cute as a button August challenge - Back to School

I have done a mixed media double page in the journal I have started for my youngest grand daughter who is 8 years old.

I painted both pages with purple acrylic paint.
Added moulding paste through stencil on both pages.
On left side printed pencil paper from Create with TLC and layered on top.
Printed sentiment and alphabet from Create with TLC and layered on top of the papers.
Printed Cute as a Button digi stamp School Days, cut out and coloured with markers and layered on top.
On right side I added a piece of torn Its only a number paper from Create with TLC.  Printed a photo of my grand daughter and her friend and layered on top.
Added photo of my grand daughters drawing.
Added washi tape to both pages.

I hope you will go over to Cute as a Button and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge:
