Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

12 Months - Art Challenge

The Art Challenge for September over on 12 Months in View is to create some decorative papers with everyday items.

I used scraps of neutral coloured patterned papers.

I covered them with Autumnal coloured paints.

I stencilled them with home made stencils.

I stamped them with household items.

Cut up into rectangles and then patchworked onto my page.

I added my latest craft club pieces from the "Metal Effects" class.

a) Embossed Metal Tape covered card coloured with Alcohol inks.

b) Gilding Flakes - the latest addition to my stash!

Then I added some of the flying birds from my new die.

Yep - just HAD to add the words "FLY SOUTH" as Winter is looming and the birds will be leaving for warmer climes.

Finally some white pen highlights and doodles to finish.
