Well the weeks are racing by and it's time for Linda's Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge 25. This week we are trying out Tim's Perfect Pearls ink palette technique which can be found on page 53 of CC2. This week there is a generous prize from Simon Says Stamp of a $25 gift certificate for their store which stocks just about everything a crafter could ever need, yum yum. So my submission this week is a very blingy card which I have made for my niece's birthday. I've used Perfect Pearls Metallics set to colour the cat and the background. This is the only set I've got of these, but I can now see the versatility of them so I may have to invest in some more. I am going on my jolly holidays on Saturday so this will be my last post for a week or so. I'm very excited as I am going to Madrid with a couple of my old friends. We've been promising ourselves an adventure as a rather belated celebration of becoming 'middle aged' So not long now till three go mad in Madrid ! x
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.
