Big Blog Catchup !

O dear,I havent blogged for ages ! so finially i,m here to catchup on what i have been working on,i,m sure i might have missed a lot out but here goes.... Above is..yes Christmas cards,its that time again,this one is a watercolour worked with a new marker pen i found called The Elegant Writer,its brilliant for just painting with as when you add water to the lines it changes colours! i did have to practice to try and control it,but pleased with the outcome. next a few more cards i have been making,really into the Stepper card at the moment,using a die Fabric notepad and more stepper cards ! This year i went to a craft show in Stevenage near me,and watched a demo on Fresco chalk paints and was hooked ! and also the Jofy stamps..heres my creations Also been having a play with my Gelli Plate,actually stamping on it ! need more practice lol I think i have caught up ! Happy Christmas everyone if i,m not back for awhile x

Napkin Art

Last weekI went to a lovely garden centre,and found some beautiful napkins i could,nt resist..sooo here we go,first off i had some experimenting to do with a few new products,like Aquatints inks,a script mask,spray inks etc,tried to match the colours in with the Cockerel napkin,i think it worked !I used Gloss Mod Podge for adhereing the napkins to card.Also Modelling paste for the script mask,loved the effect ! Same thing with the Rose napkin,as i need to practice ! Then Next i wanted to make a couple of storage boxs for my Journals,recycling cereal boxs,just got to find a home for them now :)
