The current challenge letter of "Z"sure gave me a headache but thanks to Karen over at The Craft Barn, who gave me some suggestions, I have done Zulu Heritage Day.
The day is celebrated on 24th September and is a time for all South Africans to celebrate their diverse traditions, beliefs and cultures.
I took my inspiration from some African art I found on the web and created a colourful pattern using hand drawn and stamped shapes.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in 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 usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
