I cant believe another week has passed and I have achieved, well not alot, made a few cards etc. but have managed the SS Challenge. Eyes. This was a difficult one for me, but found a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper that appealled and with the help of the old tattered florals die achieve this little piece. Not my style at all but it fits the bill!!!!

Hi there here is my entry for this week. You can see I LIKEY the moulding clearly for art stuff very much must try to do something different to butterflies today with bit of luck. Anyway really enjoyed it and your TV show Hels, below ( post one down!!) is my tag inspired by you!!!!
Hi Folks this wee creation was inspired by Hels Sheriden's show on TV last week. Unfortunately I did not have any Artparts die cuts so being me I improvised and die cut with Sixxix dies covered with TH papers and paint and ink. A good spray with Perfect Pearls mist Forever red and I did invest in some Clearly Art moulding sheets from Artistic Stamper. Do like this material. So very pleased hope you like Hels and a big thanks for the inspiration!!!! and thanks to Jennie for dispatching my order so quick.

Hi back to playing again here is my contribution. Again its distressed stains, water and salt sorry I am so liking this technique, and again tissue tape and paper lace both coloured with distressed stains. But this time I die cut butterflies, glued on to acetate coloured with alcohol inks, glitter and a few pearls. Now to the real vintage bit - the pearls at the bottom, my mother, bless her gave me this probably about 30 years ago and she probably had it ages, so I say it is really vintage, have loads left so sure it will appear again. Very pleased with it and when I finish my family album it will be included. I did a similar one for my brother but never good round to finishing mine so another job for 2012!!! Gosh its going to be a busy crafting year!!!!
Hi Hels and all who come to look
Here is my contribution this week. I am loving backgrounds with Distressed Stains, water and salt made a great starting point this week. Then a bit of stamping, tissue tape, distressed ink, paper lace, a message and a bit of glimmer spray and I'm done. Hope you like - I even coloured seam binding tape AND stamped on it for added effect. I am very pleased. Will be watch today Hels I love Studio 490!!!!

Happy New Year to you all. Spent New Year with family in London. Came home with a lovely picture of my daughter and grandson, so decided to do a scrapbook page. I have not done any family pages for absolutely ages, so decided I must catch up I am several years (yes years) behind, so I will start from the present and work back.
