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.

Romance card

I love to try new folds but this one was a bit annoying really ...cos I don't do  however once I started I had to complete it.  Won't be making another one any time soon but I think this turned out ok.  The colours of this fabulous Basicgrey paper that I found in my stash made me a tad happier though ... soooooo gorgeous!!

I distressed the chipboard frame from Crafty Individuals with distress ink and added a little heart that I created with a stamp and air dry clay.  More Crafty Individuals stamped images on the inside....

with a lickle bit of lace and a fabric flower just to finish off.

Have a great weekend all :D

Chris you have gone and changed your pic and your blog look lol i hardly recognised you :) In a nice way of course .
Love this but looks so hard to make, i could never achieve such a beautiful piece.
Thanks too for the tip on air drying clay. I have a huge chunk of it that i bought from the art shop its not white its grey but thats because they make it up themselves. I dont seem to be able to do much with it as when i do thin pieces it cracks. Any tips would be greatfully recieved :)
have a happy weekend
hugs June xxxx
