Happy Birthday

Here's the birthday card I made for my daughter-in-law.

The background is some of the new DI paints, and the flower is a Wendy Vecchi stencil.

It's a very murky, foggy day here, no sign of the sun, think it's disappeared altogether, lol.

Late again!!!

I always seem to be late with the Art Journal Calendar, which is hosted by the very talented Kate Crane, here's my February page

You can see I've gone for the traditional pink and Valentines theme.  Both the background and the squares are done with my Gelli plate.  The background is done with Golden paints, but the squares were created with the new Distress Paints, which are fabulous, more runny than Golden.  February is cut out of distress card with Tim's wordplay die.

February's Play Day

For our February Play Day we decided to do a small sewing project based on an article which we'd seen in Sew Somerset by Kristen Robinson.

Some free motion machine stitching and some hand stitching.  I'm in the process of making another two of these, each one slightly different, then I'm going to mount them and hang them together.
