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.

More Mixed Media July challenge - anything goes with the option of pastel colours

More Mixed Media July challenge - anything goes with the option of pastel colours

I have done another page in the journal for my youngest grand daughter

I painted the page with Gesso primer.  Sponged background with blue and green distress inks.  Painted over stencil with moulding paste then when dry sponged over part of it with Victorian Velvet distress ink.  Printed Charlie's stamp Cute Unicorn colored digital stamp, cut out and layered on top.
Printed sentiment, cut out and layered on top.  Added pink rhinestones.

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 journal page to the following:

2 Crafty Critter crazies - anything with a critter

A Inky mess 25

Altered Eclectics - anything mixed media

Classic Design team 27 - anything goes

Crafty Animals 16 - anything goes with an animal

Mix it Up 15 - anything goes + mixed media

Sunny Day Crafting 26 - any animal
