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 - anything goes with optional brown

More Mixed Media - anything goes with optional brown (use a little or a lot)

I have made another page in the journal I am making for my youngest grand daughter.

I painted the page with Gesso primer and when dry painted background and tree with acrylic paints.
Stamped grass and flowers with brilliance ink.  Stamps are from Posh Impressions Stamp-A-Scene.
Wrote sentiment with purple Kirarina Wink Pen
Stamped parrot onto white card, coloured with markers, cut out, and layered onto tree.
Printed Di's Digi stamp Girl and Kitty onto white card, coloured with markers, cut out and layered onto page.
(The scan does not show the colours correctly, the cat and her hair are brown and her bow and dress are a pretty pinky mauve)

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:

A Inky Mess 23 - anything mixed media

Crafting from the Heart 218 - anything goes

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends 89 - anything goes

Love to Craft 26 - anything goes

Love to Scrap 113 - anything goes
