This month's tag fits in perfectly with the calendar of my life. As a teacher, I have just started the long summer break. The weather is perfect and the prospect of several weeks of not going to work stretching ahead of me has put me in true holiday mood. What better way to start the holidays than to get stuck into creating this month's tag, for Tim's Twelve Tags of 2014 Challenge. you can see his lovely tag by following the link here. I love the sea theme of this month's tag and was very pleased that my Sand and Sea die arrived in time. The tag has a great dimensional quality with all the different elements stacked on top the background. I love the effect of the Distress Embossing powder on the sand dollar and the way Tim showed us how to use it to create the sand effect and adding a touch of Distress Glitter, is just ..... well.... genius !! That's it for now, until next time, 'happy summer crafting' 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.
