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.

Oh the joys....

of playtime with Distress inks and Tim Holtz goodies... so much fun to be had and lovely colourful fingers to finish with lol
I'm now back home after my fab time with Chriss who is an absolute joy to share crafty time with and who introduced an almost teetotaler to the joys of drinking Brandy and coke (turning me into a virtual alcoholic) rofl
I have the joys of looking after DG this weekend so no crafting but more lovely company and I'm sure lots of fun and games.
So just quickly sharing this arty piece I made. Distress inked background with a pen nib stamp for added decoration (sorry don't know who's it is). I used a grungeboard oval frame for this fab stamp ... part of a collage stamp from Paperartsy (which I think bares an uncanny resemblance to the great man himself...oooeer)!!

The stamped image was placed on top of some crinkled paper and then I added sepia accents for that lovely raised glossy look. Finished off with a couple of brads and voila :D
Lots of lovely mess left over but OMG it was worth it. Lots more to share over the next few weeks cos Chriss and I did LOADS of artwork these last few days.... mojo was in overdrive for a change.
Have a fab weekend
Chris xx
