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.

Funky Fairies - Creative Designer

A wee while ago Shaz had a call for guest Creative Designers for the Funky Fairies Papercrafts site so I put myself forward and she sent me a lovely email saying she would love to see more of my creations and here are some of my first.
There are lots of freebies to download from the Funky Fairies Inspiration blog and also a weekly challenge on the Funky Fairies challenge blog so pop on over through the links and see what everyone is up to :D
Bit of a long post this one picture-wise but as I haven't posted for a while I thought I would give you some eye candy to look at. Feast after the
First of all I decorated this candle with papers from the' Doodlementals' freebies adding a bit of lace and some 3d hearts. The candle should be for decorative purpose only but in a moment of weakness I couldn't resist lighting it.... I put it out fairly quickly though :D
Next is a frame I altered with some of the papers from 'In with the old' this is one of my favourite kits. I patched some papers for the background behind the photograph and cut out a corner and hearts to decorate the front along with some chipboard letters.

I had to make at least one card and used two of the 'Dots are distressing' papers for the background. I just had to add some ribbon and bling too :D
I sculpted the leaves and stem from some matching card and added this layered flower from the 'Doodlementals' printable flowers that I used a water pen and dye based inks to colour.
Finally (was that a sigh I heard....rofl) I decorated a notepad block and tin with papers once again from 'In with the old' adding some sticky ribbon and some more chipboard lettering.... to make a desk set for my craft space :D
Okey Dokey that's me lot for now.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend :D

That is a super candle. I like how you have shown it lit and un-lit, and I simply adore that flower with the blue and yellow dots on it, you are so clever. I feel sure that you will get selected - I would if I were them.
