Tulip from Amsterdam

 Hi all


It has been years since posting on my blog.  As you remember Mixed media was myu passion however that has gone by the wayside and have decided to concentrate on clean craft - I have gone right back to the beginning of my crafting days - Cards

Anyway for my first post I have die cut an edging of a tulip.  Die is branded as I have no idea where I bought it from.

Here goes - hope you like it.

Altered Eclectics March Challenge

Hi everyone

For this months challenge I have used dismantled necklaces and tried my hand at beading.  OMG you will never know how many times I had to restart these projects.  Too many to count lol.  I will pursue this hobby though as I am determined to get it right and also it is relaxing although frustrating at the same time lol.

As you can see I made a bauble sleeve and a bracelet.  The bracelet was initially meant for an adult but I cut my losses and kept it small in case I made another mistake.  My granddaughter is now the proud owner (she is only six so very easy to please lol.

November challenge for Altered Eclectics

Hello everyone

Firstly apologies for my long long absence from creating anything.  I have had alot of personal stuff going on this year (still have!!!) and my mojo completely disappeared, in fact I hadn't even stepped into my craft room.  I forced myself in there for the November challenge over at Altered Eclectics and came up with these, an altered jug and bottle/vase. Typical of me though - I forgot to take pics of the before lol.

I painted these white, used napkins from my stash and then used sandpaper on the edges to give them the vintage look.  Finally I gave them a coat of varnish.

I do hope you like them - now for the pics and sorry for the overload.

May challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello everyone

It is time for a new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and the theme is always Anything Goes as along as it is mixed media/altered art.  

For this months challenge I altered an old bottle I had kicking about.  I covered the entire bottle with scrunched up tissue paper.  Once dry I painted it black and dried it off again.  I then wiped inka gold over the creases and then used various metal embellishments from my stash which I spray painted gold before attaching to the bottle.

That's it for this month - a really simple project.

Now for the pics
