Go Figure

Go Figure is the new challenge at That's Crafty, so just use numbers somewhere in your work. My make is based on measurement and comes from the quote on the Prima Butterfly stamps by Finnabair "If your dreams do not scare youthey are not big enough".  My tag is of course on of those ultra sturdy Thats Crafty MDF tags, with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Whale Watching Blue" and Sea Grass Green Magicals from the Nantucket Pearls range mixed with water and painted with some flicks of "Hibiscus Rose" spray.  The Butterflies are stamped and hand cut from paper which was sprayed with Lindy's "Yellow Rose of Texas", "Hibiscus Rose" and "Bonjour Butter" sprays using the Crafters Workshop Flower Frenzy stencil. So for a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher pop over to the blog for more details on how to enter.

Textured Flowers

 This is my make today forthe That's Crafty DT Blog.  It uses plaster bandage to create highly textured / moulded flowers which stand proud of the base which is a That's Crafty MDF panel. .This is acheivable because the MDF panel is so sturdy it can take the plaster work on the top. why not pop over the the That's Crafty Blog for full details.

Shiny Disco Balls

This is my make today over at That's Crafty featuring one of their fabulous MDF tags.


This is my make today over on the That's Crafty Blog, it is an abstract painting which forms part of a series I have been working on about “transitions” the point or process where one thing becomes another light to dark / land to sea / child to adult etc.  One of the things I really like about abstract is that although I know exactly what I was thinking and trying to communicate in the painting each person who sees it will see something different and  everyone’s view is right. 

Know who you are

I celebrated a birthday this week.  I always find birthdays are a time for reflection and as I get increasingly older the more comfortable I feel just being me, the more I accept I am only a very tiny thing in the universe and what I do or don’t  is not that important in the grand scheme of things  and the more I come to terms with the limits which result from living with a chronic illness so here is a journal page which for me reflects that.This is my Monday make over on the That's Crafty DT Blog, pop over for all the details of how I made it.


Happy Easter everybody and today I have a sort of chocolate themed make for my DT post over at That's Crafty today in that I have altered a box which originally held chocolates.   I’ve gone for a shabby chic feel for my box.

Spring Flower

Having been promised a mini heat wave this weekend we had had grey skies, miserable cold and rain so I thought a little cheeriness was needed hence my bright spring flower, it is my make this week on the That's Crafty DT blog.   I’ve used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals, DecoArt Modelling Paste  and a Donna Downey Big Peony Blossom stencil to make a card.  For all the details visit the That's Crafty blog.
