My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Encaustic wax canvas and an introduction...

Hi all... no I haven't morphed into a different person... I still look like her maj (royally waving at you like but I know you are going to wonder why this lovely lady is on my blog....

Well before I stepped down from my post as Fiskars Ambassador I had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely Joanne Sanderson who is one talented lady. However because she was poorly back then she kindly finished the interview for me last week and I forwarded it to the new girls over at Fiskarettes to feature on the blog. Joanne creates the most wonderful cross stitch designs and is also a published papercrafter and Author of some fab craft books.

So I just wanted to let you know that you can read our interview here on the Fiskarettes blog. See some more of Joanne's designs on her website and pick up lots of hints and tips on her blog... I'm sure she would be happy if you paid her a visit :)

Now my crafty offering today is an Encaustic wax painting done on canvas... I just adore painting with wax although I really don't spend as much time doing it as I would like to lately. I keep dipping my fingers into many craft pies but can't settle on any one thing... I just keep hopping from one craft to another depending on how the mood takes me. Next on the list of want to do's is some more sewing because I've neglected that too and I do enjoy it when I get started :) Anyway Linda and Rosie's big arch adventure challenge this week is sewing so it's a great excuse to get stuck in. Hopefully I will be able to show you what I came up with tomorrow.

Have a great evening everyone
See you soon
Chris xx

I won't quote you but Chris your flowers are recognisable infact you put me to shame with your beautiful canvas piece.
Lovely interview of Joanne.

Shashi I so wish I could take credit for the flowers but I'm afraid they are one of Joanne's cross stitch designs :)
Only the bottom wax painting is mine but thank you for the compliment on my canvas:)

I love the wax painting Chris. It's something I haven't had a go at (Yet) like you I can't stop rushing from one craft to another.
