Valentines love

Hi guys, just popping by with a quick post to show the card I made for hubby for Valentines, soppy eh?

The beautiful heart is by Scrapiniec and is a double layer, which you build up, the clock is by Dusty Attic and i left both of them in their natural colour just adding a mini pearl in the centre of the clock,
one red rose and a couple of hand cut hessian leaves finish it off,
The gorgeous paper came from love to craft and create and is called  the cricket on the hearth - 04,

Happy Crafting!!

Whoop Whoop!!

Hi guys just popping on with some fabby news I am now one of the design team for
Monika has such gorgeous products in her online store, do pop over and take a peek!!
beautiful papers, chipboards and embellishments too, just don't blame me if you end up spending!!! 
 Hopefully I should be back on Tuesday with my first post, but have you noticed my blog has been a little quiet, I had to have an operation on my face, with a few stitches and the darn thing has bled twice so it had left me quiet tired and I didn't want to put too much pressure on it either,
I had the stitches out yesterday though and all seems well !!!!

anyway back to my post, lol
here is a card I made before my op using one of the gorgeous chipboard windows from
Love To Craft And Create, lace and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl,

Colour theme over at Tando Creative

Hi guys, back today with a canvas i have made for the Feb colour theme going on over at 


The picture made me think of rustic, old flaking paint buildings so I'm hoping this is what it looks like, the wall area I added a couple of small pieces of masking tape on the canvas then painted it with some acrylic fluid paint, then i took the tape away and it left a fab distressed look, the grid rectangles I coated with a layer of stippled texture sand paste to give a rough texture to look like stone,
The roof was made using a distressed sequin mask with modeling paste onto water colour paper then I painted over the top with some Paynes grey fluid acrylic, when dry I rough cut out the shape and fixed it onto the canvas with some 3D pads to give a little depth,
I painted the fence and the cogs with some of the fluid paint and a little tinting base added in various amounts to get the different colours, I added some crackle paste over the top of the fence and larger cog and some texture sand over the one in front,
I've made this to brighten up a dull wet day in my craft room, lol

Lost followers

Hi guys i don't know if any of you have seen this, but apparently blogger is removing or removed all non Google accounts, so any one who follows you and doesn't use Google will disappear from your followers list, hence why i have lost loads and some have lost a lot more,
They would like us all to use Google, now i already do but have replied to them that i think making peeps do so just to follow some ones blog is terrible and certainly wouldn't make me join them just to do so,
I thought i'd pop this on here in case some one else hadn't seen the reason and didn't know like me till i asked blogger this morning!!!
SO NOT IMPRESSED!!!
 Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think,

Art Journal

Hi guys, over at Tando Creative the theme this week is anything goes, I am fairly new to mixed media but love to play so i thought an Art journal was a good way to create and play with products and then have a way to remember what works, or not lol,

I used some white Gesso, then when dry added some paints on top, I wanted the Baroque mask to be 
the main feature so i kept the background subtle, I used the sequin waste mask with the same colours to add a little detail too,
The Distressed Diamond mask has some modeling paste through and when dry I painted over with some acrylic fluid paints,
Stamps from my stash finish the background off, then i took the Baroque Mask and stencil through it with black Gesso, this makes it really pop,
Well I've a lot to learn but i keep popping over to my lovely friend Pamellia's blog to get some hints and tips as she is so talented and makes some gorgeous makes,
Anyway i hope you like it and feel like having a go yourself,
