I’ve been having a sort out

and I’ve found loads of “Works in progress” so I though I’d share a few.

Inchies, when I’m not working or planning classes (or trying to sell our house), are my passions. Here are some I made earlier.


Much earlier actually, probably about 6 years ago.

Some Twinchies as well


A few pages from my new Art Journal

P1150411 P1150412


And an idea that never went very fat


Lastly an ATC, one of over 100 I’ve found.


I’ll try to share more as I find them. Thanks for looking. xxx

Love that Terminology Tissue Wrap

This is the first time I have used it in classes and it is a fantastic product. Combine it with Glue N Seal and it is amazing.

It comes by the roll and tears really easily to make the strips that we needed to cover frames. The Glue n seal was not too sticky so we had time to play around a bit before it dried and the this I liked the most was that the tissue will take on the colour you lay it onto so in this case I used an undercoat of white matt acrylic but you could use any colour and get a great effect.

The added bonus is that even when wet the tissue still holds together well and does not fall apart like normal tissue would. A thin layer of the Glue n Seal over the top and voila!!! ready to embellish and hang on your wall.

This is the finished project.


You can see how good the tissue looks in this next photo


Have made another one of these in different colours which I will share later in the year. You can see more photos of the project and the class HERE.

Thanks for looking xx

What a stunner

I can’t take credit for these lovely photos but I think our Kristian has taken two beautiful photos of our lovely Charlotte. She is growing so fast.



Don’t grow up too quickly little girl. xxx

My 2011 Christmas Cards

Despite all of my resolutions I still find that after teaching all year, I am too busy to make my own cards.

In 2011 I was determined to get down to making cards early. Did I? No but I did manage to make two cards, one for mum and dad and one for Karen.


Just to prove I made two.



This year I AM going to make all my own. Think I’d better start making cards now.
