Another late post for Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2. It's time for challenge number 26 using Tim's Crumpled Kraft Suede technique. For full details, turn to page 40 of CC2. I'm still in halloween mode and have made a rather 'dark' valentine card as I was keen to use this heart stamp I bought sometime ago from Stampfrancisco. They have some really quirky stamp designs. I don't think this is quite finished as I feel the flower isn't quite working for me. I may have to come back to it... or not as the case may be I think I am done with Halloween now. Still I really wanted to enter Linda's challenge as I missed the last one. This week's challenge is sponsored by the lovely people over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique with a $25 gift certificate. I am also entering this into The Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is Halloween. They also have kind sponsor in Marina at Cottage Crafts 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.
