Techniques Binder

I’m showing my Techniques Binder today. This was originally greyboard and comes from Tando. I saw one which Nikki Killinger, a member of the DT had completed and this gave me the inspiration for my own. Every time I complete a tag from the weekly tutorials, it can be stored in this binder.


I've used a few different techniques on this including modelling paste to give a faux embossed look and even broke into my treasured Graphic 45 papers which I've had for a few years now!

Week 2 of Techniques

It’s the second week of Tando’s FB Live and the tutorial was by Jane Royston. This week the colours are more my style. I didn’t have the exact supplies so had to improvise a little. This was the end result...



I love doing these tutorials.  I put aside time for me on a Saturday morning and just get lost in the moment...all worries are forgotten for an hour or so.  I would highly recommend it.

Learning New Techniques

Joined a FB Live on Thursday evening which is teaching different techniques using Tando greyboard as the substrate.
The lovely Hannah was up this week with an aged metal technique and a textured rust technique.  Great fun to do and very straightforward 


Special Birthday

Here's a card I was recently asked to make for a friend of a friend for someone with a significant birthday but who didn't want the age on it!
Usual layout and all AMD products used apart from a stamp.

Mixed Media Journals

Another project to get my mojo up and running.  Today it's the turn of journals.
The first two journals are made using the larger Eileen Hull Journal die.  I covered them with a sheet of cardstock I had decorated with Pixie Powders and then added layers of rice paper which I had used to mop up the Pixie Powders and then overstepped with Indigo Blu stamps with a Versafine ink pad.  The main image is a rice paper from Stamperia.







I couldn't resist doing a couple of the smaller passport journals with the lovely flamingo napkins again!

Welcome to 2019

...albeit a little late!
I don't know about other people but after the huge amount of crafting I do in the lead up to Christmas, by the time Christmas is over and I have some spare time to craft, I have lost my mojo which is exactly what happened to me this January.  I decided therefore, to have a bit of a play and try something a little different to what I am used to...candles!

I only had one set of Starlight candle paint colours to play with, hence all the pink and purple!  So I started with a dirty pour.  This really is fun to do, if a bit messy, but you just never know how it's going to turn out.



I then decided to see if I could add a stamped image but painted the tissue paper first to make it blend in.




...and finally, some plain candles using an ombré effect.


More Baubles!

I think I may have finally caught up with all the Christmas makes - more baubles today.  I had quite a response when I posted a photo on FB, everyone seemed to like them and wanted one!
Sorry about the amount of pictures.
