Yesterday I finished the samples ready for my next but one class so as a reward I had a little play and made a couple of ATCs.
This one uses Paperbag studio images, the little girl looks very like my daughter when she was small - I do a double take every time I see this image.

This uses PaperArtsy stamps coloured with Promarkers.  Both colour schemes aren't my usual choice and I always struggle a bit with green so I'm pleased with the way they turned out.

Today has been spent wrestling my garden into submission - much less relaxing and I now ache all over.

Secret Garden canvas

This is a canvas I made for a class last week at Kraft Crazy at Tidworth.  As you can see it was heavily influenced by the pieces we did at the Artsy Crafts weekend with Lin and Leandra and the tissue paper flower in particular was something we made there. The background has got rather washed out by the flash but uses the Paper Artsy hot pick stamps.  We all got nice and mucky making it and everyone seemed pleased with their efforts.

I've still been playing about with the henna patterns I found at Henna page and here are a couple of pages I made in my sketchbook.

I had some paper that I had sprayed with glimmer mists and I cut it into triangles and then arranged them in patterns on the page and stuck them down.  Then I doodled patterns on and around them - great to do in front of the telly!  I love the results and could just go on and on!
