Looking forward

Good morning my friends. Today i am looking forward. I have had a not so good winter and i am so longing for the spring. Time for brighter days and new beginnings.

 I have something so cool and wonderful in the pipeline but i am keeping it a secret for now but all will be revealed when i can reveal it.

 I have recently got my free craft classes for the elderly etc back running every thursday afternoon and its a lovely time for a chat with the ladies and crafts and tea. Also i have been busy creating Dezinaworld kits and freebies which can be viewed on my other blog and facebook group.

I have been making cards and altering coasters and am looking forward to a very creative year. These coasters are altered old coasters from 1980's. They are covered in wallpaper (from a book of samples ) and then stamped and embossed and sealed. My grandson wanted them so he and his dad now have them at their home. 

Thanks for reading. June x

M.I.A back to blog

Hi everyone, I have not been around a lot online as i have been busy with wedding preparations for my son's wedding on Nov 12th. I have been doing a little crafting when i could though and have been creating Christmas cards. I finally got around to taking pictures of the cards and so came for a catch up in blogland. 

I hope everyone is doing well. I am sorry i have been a bit lapse in my blogging but i will catch up properly after the wedding. At the moment i just can not relax. 
Here are the makes i have done for Christmas. They are each completely different with different techniques used. As always my crafting is chaos lol.

Back in action

 Its been a difficult time recently with a nasty flu type bug descending on our household and also with a fight for care rights for my mam with Alzheimers. Me and my sister are determined to get that one sorted out. 
Yesterday though, i was feeling well enough to create these little Halloween witch ATC's. 

  • collaged the background with various scraps. 
  • Added inks 
  • Sprayed with ink dots
  • Created crackle over the collaged backgrounds using acrylic paints and crackle glaze.
  • Stamped a little girl by Santoro stamps
  • Coloured her with Marco refine pencils and fine liners. Then fussy cut her and edged with black to hide the white edges. 
  • Hand drew the little witch hats onto patterned paper and cut out.
  • put together ATC and finished off with pens etc.

Tuesday musings and art

I have had an arty crafty week, see  that below.  Also been doing lots of digital stuff for my other blog. 

At home i have been visiting mam more often as she is not doing so well, losing weight and last week hallucinating. The doctor is looking into it. Its hard to get to the bottom of things with someone that has dementia. All we can do is keep on loving her and doing our best to look after her.

Sam and i are going away this weekend to Crimdon Dene caravan park for a few days. We are also taking Sams sister and her partner and our little Jojo. We have not had a break or holiday for a long time so it will be a welcome break. 

Ok  here is the creative stuff ...

Atc's are stamped and altered images, I can't just stamp, i like to make them my own lol. Lots of paints, pens and inks used as well as scraps of papers and some vintage book text. I really enjoyed making them. 

 Below is a greeting  card i made too.

Its been an extremely warm week this week. I have sat in front of a room fan whenever the opportunity presented itself. Its also been a very productive and creative week. I have turned my hand back to an old favourite of mine 'ATC'S. I had forgotten how fun they are to make. Its been a messy, painty but extremely satisfactory time. Below are the results of this  (don't forget the sunglasses ! ) 

I have also been digitally  creative over at my other blog  Dezinaworld15  Where i have been creating and posting Free and Original images for everyone to use.

A brand new Autumn card finished today. I was in the mood for autumnal colours. The card is white and brown cardstock with 5 patterned coordinating papers cut into the shapes and glued down on cream card then mounted onto the brown.. Then i used another paper on the rectangle and mounted that onto the brown card. I stamped the images of leaves and greeting and frame, coloured all with markers and dabbed the leaves with distress inks in rusty hinge and green using corner of a baby wipe. I coloured the die cut butterfly the same way and assembled.

Have a happy Monday everyone.

Hugs June x
