Framed Beach


Challenge time again at The Creative Artiste Mixed Media challenge.


I saw this frame in a shop, it was just coloured stripes then and I saw this beach seen in my head.
The shells, seaweed and bone fragment I picked up off a beach. I can't help it if I go to the seaside I have to go on a hunt for bits and pieces I may be able to use. The lighthouse and compass are die cut and coloured with distress inks. The fence, sea and sand in the bottom right is a good old rub-on. I've had it for years and it worked perfectly on this project. I just put a picture I'd taken recently in the middle.
I was really pleased with how this turned out. Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow team mates have made, there are some lovely ideas.

Flowers and Leaves


It's new challenge time at the 
Altered Eclectic Challenge.
The theme is, as always
Anything Goes


I've done a small canvas piece this month. The background is done with alcohol inks. I love this technique. I have used embossing paste through a stencil for the brick and the leaves. But I have put glitter over the leaves.


I have used metal leaves and flowers on the bottom corner and velvet leaves along the top edge. Some very different textures in this project.

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.

Gifts galore.

I have coloured her with Prisma pencils and a little glitter using Crafters Companion glitter pens.

The back ground papers are from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles . They really are very good and easy to use, I have just layered them up with matching pink backgrounds.


I've made a couple of parcels to decorate the corner, they are really simple to do, and a die cut greeting also coloured with the glitter pen.
