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.

Believe easel card

Some of my all time favourite papers are Basicgrey... I love the grungy look that they give whilst remaining pretty at the same time.  

I've been using alcohol inks again to cover this chipboard frame and had to indulge my ongoing passion for flowers.

I have loads of these self adhesive coloured half pearls cos they are so lush and easy to use.  It's great being able to just pop them onto what I create without worrying about glue seeping out from under them.

I am enjoying making these easel cards but as usual am guilty of overindulging when I find pleasure in making something and keep making

Do you think I'm in danger of  suffering from Easel card OCD!!
Have a great day
Chris xx

Love these colours, I am the same when I make an easel card I seem to make them for days, but if you like them why not, love the flowers.
