Sneak Peek 'Just Three Colours'...... Guest Designer for Our Creative Corner
I was absolutely thrilled to receive an invitation to be a guest designer for the February challenge over at Our Creative Corner. They are an extremely talented design team and some of the nicest ladies in crafty blogland ! Jenny, who many of you will know from her blog Pushing The Right Buttons, has set a fabulous challenge, guaranteed to get the creative juices flowing. The challenge is to use only three colours; shades of blue, brown and purple/plum and wait for it..... no black lines! As black Archival Ink is just about the most used product in my craft room, I really had to put my thinking cap on. If you'd like to see what I came up with, hop over to the Our Creative Corner blog where you'll also be treated to a stunning collection of projects from the design team with not a black line in sight ! It just remains for me to say, a very big 'thank you' to the team, for giving me the opportunity to join you all for this fun challenge 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.
