Ballerina

Like me most people have loads of stamps. I often have stamps that I would never normally use but they may have been bought specifically for a card class or similar so I wanted to show that you can mix cute with mixed media and make it work.
 
I did the background first and had no idea how to finish it off and then I found this adorable stamp set and I was able to finish my page. (The little bunny is my favourite). x

Masking Tape

Simple this time. To add masking tape to a page.
This was a face that I had in my stash, not drawn by me I hasten to add (I'm not that good at faces) but painted first then masking tape and then sprays. Worked really well x.

Beginning to Journal

For about 6 months now I  have been teaching a group of ladies at my home. Well I suppose teaching is the wrong word more like sharing ideas and overcoming fears to help them to let themselves go and enjoy a bit of Art Journaling. And we have had so much fun, loads of laughs and of course, plenty of messy fingers. What I thought might just be a few sessions has turned into a regular monthly meet up to craft, share ideas and learn from each other.

Over the next few days I will share some of the pages I have done for these sessions. They are meant as inspiration and all of them without exception taught a new technique or used a product new to some people or were just a learning curve adding say stamping or paper piecing and realising that there is no wrong way just the fun way.
The faces in the bottom right hand corner were drawn by me and reduced by scanning and printing. Homework that night was to draw a face lol x

Work in Progress

I've started playing with some new stamps designed by "Nicole". They are great to use and so easy to colour in or paint.
More work to do but coming along nicely. x

I'm back....

Its been ages since I posted on any of my Blogs mainly due to family health issues but I think at last everything is moving in the right direction. One of the good things is that in the last month I have become a great aunt to a beautiful baby girl called Belle. I'm sure she will appear on many of my projects in the years to come lol.

So what to share, well this piece was made as a colour sample canvas for one of my classes. The hope was that it would allow them to choose a colour combination for thweir own work.


I am still itching to add some white but I think it is better this way so that I can see how the colours work for future projects.
Here is a bit more detail including a picture just to show how it looks.



It was so much fun being able to work on a larger canvas. It's definately something I will do again.

The class porject was a box. The one on the right is the finished box and the one on the left was done as an example in class.


Looking forward to the next one. Something a bit different next time xx
