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.

'Family' fridge magnet

I so often create something that I end up putting in a folder and end up not looking at again for months. Are you the same? I make cards, atc's or other art that I give away or swap too but rarely do I create anything and display it in my own home.
So I think that should change and I begin with this magnet for my fridge. The backing is vellum that I have curled the edges on. I topped it with a piece of hand painted background, a flower and an edged slide image from Lisas altered art.

It will give me pleasure each time I look at it in its new home in the kitchen :D Much better than hiding it away eh.

I love your fridge magnet my lovely. I think we are all guilty of making things to just give away. I used to be very unsure of puting my stuff around the house but my hubby doesn't mind. But I have confined it to the loo hahahahaha!!! HUGS XXX

I love your fridge magnet!! That's such a lovely photo. Yes, too often it is only our supplies that show we're a crafter. I have a magnetic display in a frame I do try to fill up with my latest layout/cards, but at the moment it is empty. Maybe I'll try making some of those pretty vellum flowers of yours and see what I can come up with for US.

But your magnet definitely deserves to be in full view on the fridge it's beautiful.
