Anniversary Keepsake


This is my DT project for this months challenge over at the Creative Artiste Mixed Media challenge.

The theme as always is anything goes

I had to make this for a friends parents, It's their Golden Wedding Anniversary so I was given a selection of photo's which I put together like a flip/wall hanging, which folds down to pit in a box. 


I've added some 3d decoratio,


Wording and gems,


It is all held together with 2 lines of ribbon which enables it to fold down.


There is a verse on the last page and a fancy bow, made with my new bow maker I am so pleased I finally got all the way from America. Areally brilliant keepsake idea for any special occassion.

My Craftroom Door


This is a little bit late but I've been away for the weekend and it was done a little last minute. This is my 1st project at DT member for
It's going to be fun making more mixed media items they are fun to do.

The theme is always Anything Goes.

I have done something quite simple really as it was a bit last minute to get it ready for this challenge.

It's a door hanging that I plan to use on my craft room door. This was just a piece of board, that I covered with a decorative paper and distressed round the edges. I have stamped on the corner, the wording and the leaves. I put eyelets through the corner and tied the canvas ribbon to for hanging purposes. The paper flowers I have hand made with different textured papers and coloured them with distress inks. A simple first project but I hope you all like it.

Lantern Heart


It's time for a new challenge over at

The theme is
Any Thing Goes
( option use chipboard, stencils, diecut toppers)


This is my project for this months challenge. It is a chipboard lantern. I have textured the surface with texture paste, then given it a base coat of acrylic paint.


I have then used distress inks gathered twigs,vintage photo, frayed burlap, pine needles and wild honey, I have rummaged around my garden to find some twigs, moss and stems to make the base of the decorations.



I have then coloured silk ivy leaves with the same distress ink. then finished off the decoration with a little stone heart, a metal butterfly decorated with glitter and a battery candle for safety. I really enjoyed doing this, finding all the bits, and pleased with the result too.

Please pop over to the challenge to see some great inspiration from my fellow team mates.
