Well here I am posting my October tag, for Tim's Twelve Tags of 2015 challenge, on the last day of the month ! I must confess I have been dragging my feet over this one. I love the new Monster dies that Tim has released and as tempted as I am, my crafty budget will just not stretch quite that far. So my tag this month is all about improvising and using my stuff ! I must say I'm quite pleased with the results. I followed the same techniques Tim used on his fabulous tag and made substitutions for the products I haven't got. The background paper is from Tim's Laboratoire Paper Stack and the monster face features were cut with Movers and Shapers 'Mini Silly Jack O Lantern dies. So that's it for another month, at least I won't have long to wait and see what Tim has in store for November ! Happy Halloween folks x
Hi everybody, Its' time for a new Stamps and Stencils challenge. Sue is our host this month and her challenge title is 'Whatever it is Make it 3D'. She has also added to the fun with a blog hop and a prize for one lucky person who discovers our secret word. If you've arrived here from Sharon's blog, you are in the right place to gather another letter to help you solve the puzzle. I hope you've been enjoying seeing the fabulous 3D projects made by my talented teamies. I decided to go for pure fun with this Halloween home decor piece. I've had a great time putting this together, using dies, paints, inks, embossing powders, sprays, stencils, stamps, glitter and gems. In fact every thing but the kitchen sink I'm looking forward to seeing what my little nieces and nephews think of it, when they come round for Halloween. As this is a blog hop, I won't go into a lot of depth about how I made it, instead, here are a few pictures of some of the stages.......
Now, you need to hop on over to Sues blog, with this link, where you'll find the final letter. Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs, we always love to know what you think of our work and of course please join in with our 3D challenge, just remember to include some stamping or stenciling in your project. Oh! and before I go you'll need this.... L ...... Happy hopping !
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.
