Just got time to post my pics for WOYWW # 151, Julia over at her Stamping Ground Blog continues to host this fascinating site. So what have I been up to this week? My table is still messy as I tend to just launch into things when I have the time. If I spend time tidying up I don't have time to play. I've had a couple of sessions this week, I made a tag for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges, completed my Tim Holtz Twelve Tags April challenge and made a tag for the Compendium of Curiousities 2 challenge, hosted by Studio L3. So its been tags all the way. I was pleased to make the top three over at FSC for my entry into their 'Nautical' challenge.You can see the tag in my previous post. Also on my desk just to the left side is a packet of picture frame magnates bought from my local Pound Land shop. I just love having a mooch in there. I've altered and used one on the tag you can see in the picture and it was just right for Tim's 'faux patina' technique. I think they're pretty good value and very easy to work with. I'll be posting a picture before the challenge closes if you want to have a closer look. Anyway have a good crafting week until we 'meet' again x
Pound Land Bargain! they're only plastic but good for altering.
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
