Thought I'd just share my design team project for the eclectic Paperie's 'Get Altered' Challenge. Teresa is the the host for this months challenge and she's asking us to 'get altering our mail'! you can see her fabulous altered mail project, by following the link here. It's a brilliant piece of mixed media altering and should be enough to get your creative juices flowing. There are also other inspirational pieces by the DT members over on the eclectic Paperie blog. I've used some recycled packaging to make this house warming hanging. There are full details of how I put this together on the eP blog. So if you think you'd like to get altering some of your mail, hop over to the blog and you'll find full details of the challenge and how to post your project. The challenge runs until the 18th of September, so fish out that mail and get involved ! for one lucky winner, there's a $15 token for Kim's wonderful eclectic Paperie shop, where you'll find a host of products including loads of the new releases. Right, I now have a date with a jam pan and a load of home grown figs! x
Here's a list of some of the products I've used available from the eclectic Paperie shop
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.
