Here's a project I'm sharing over on the eclectic Paperie blog today. Taking centre stage, is a photo of my dad when he first came to England. If you'd like to see how I put it together, hop over to the eP blog http://eclecticpaperie.blogspot.co.uk/ and all will be revealed. As I've used lots of Tim Holtz products, I'm also going to enter this into a brand new challenge blog, rather aptly named 'A Vintage Journey'. Their first challenge is called 'Anything Tim' and I think this may just qualify.... So there you have it, two places to visit today. Hope you get chance to have some inky fun this weekend ! 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.
