I am 43 and Mum to three boys aged 15, 19 and 21 on Wednesday. I have lived on my own for 13 years and got heavily into crafting a number of yrs ago.
I started by making cross stitch and hardanger cards until an accident has left it too difficult for me to see fine work.
I found paper crafting and now atc's.
I still knit and crochet more in the winter.
A good friend of mine calles Susan gave me a RAK of some gorgeous mica. I have had it for a while then I read you can paint with it, so armed with waterbrushes and a palette Igave it a go. All i did was mix the mica pigments with water and fill in the embossing, I thought it quite effective, What do you think?
Santa was lovely this year, he got me a cutttlebug, YIPPEEEE and lots and lots of folders for embossing so................... This is what I did, I embossed some card and highlighted some areas with chalk I added some papermania embellishmentsfor interest and this is the result. I hope you like them
I got a lovely new crop-o-dile and thought I would put it to the test so I used it to make the holes in the top of the bin!! I then added die cut flower embellishments, these were decorated with gems, glitter and eyelets. I added a touch of ribbom by making some bows too
