Back In The Swing Of Things Again


Hello everyone, I am back after what seems an age and managing to get some happy crafting done.  Normality has returned to our household, Peter is recovering well and my stress levels have dropped considerably,  this week I have been able to get into my craft room (which has had to be turned into a bedroom again - long story!) and get to my crafting stash.

Spent a few hours getting messy with Brusho Paints today and hope to get something made tomorrow when my card is dry.

This is my favourite piece, Oak House Studio pearly silver ink spray and brusho paints on scrunched cling film.

Also managed a couple of cards using the tissue paper technique.   Heart shaped tissue shapes, Visible Image stamp and papermilldirect card.  The images didn't stamp as I would have liked as my ink pads have decided to dry out because they have been neglected for so long, or could have been my impatience in letting the tissue image dry!.

Out came the Silhouette cutting machine too but the cut outs need to be put together, watch out for another blog post from me soon.
