It's good to be back.. sorry for my absence! All I can say is 'LIFE' !!! It certainly gets in the way from time to time.. anyway..of course, the reason you're all here is to have a snoop around my workspace..and again.. I am sharing my table instead. ..only to be honest.. I cheated because I forgot to take a fresh photo..but it looked pretty much like this did when I took this one a few weeks back..apologies!
The reason I am sharing this instead of my desk is due to the fact that I hosted a Mixed Media workshop yesterday at my home and this is just like the mess we made ....here is a canvas I made.
Of course, if you don't know what I'm talking about.. then hop on over to Julias at The Stamping Ground to see what I'm talking about.
In the meantime.. here are some of my latest creations since I've last been here
First some Christmas cards. I used a Stampin' Up Autumn Days set to make these cards and added gold washi and bling to 'pimp' them up a bit for Christmas. I also made a few more Christmas cards that I blogged on Monday in my last post.
Then I made this layout of my gorgeous Grand-daughter for a weekly challenge over on UK Scrappers
I used 'blobs' (is there a more technical term for this?) of acrylic paint and spread them in a downward arc to create a smear of colours that went with the background on her high chair. I then layered the die cut grid, stamped the words, added die cut ducks and layered the daisies. Finally I used the Martha Stewart Fan punch to chomp out the edges a little.
Here are four more I have made too
for my final layout I used the Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose collection to make this LO to add to an album that my craft group is making for one of our members for her special birthday. I've blacked out the faces as it is a surprise. I think she'll be very pleased with the album don't you?
and finally another card made with the Glisten Collection from Kaisercraft
So that's it for now, thanks for stopping by.. I'm off for a snoop of my own..
