A Simple Thank You Card

Hello lovelies!

Well firstly let me wish you all a
Happy New Year.

I hope you enjoyed all the festivities!

I love Christmas and New Year, but the run up to it is extremely busy for me at work. It only leaves me a very small amount of time to craft during that time.

Anyhoo, a new year, means new projects created by me.

So to start off with the 2018 creations I have made a very simple thank you card.

It is actually one I have made for my wonderful hubby just to say thanks for a lovely Christmas!

I love scrabble tiles so I've used the Scrabble Tiles clear stamp set from Creative Expressions.

I stamped out the letters for the words I wanted to create. I used foampads to attach to a white card blank. 

I used a black sketch pen to draw a couple of lines around the edges. To finish I added black and white twine and a fancy paperclip...(quite appropriate as my husband sells stationery).

A very quick card.

Hope you like it.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Happy crafting,

A Beautiful Canvas

Hello lovelies!

Here I have a canvas that I created to hang in my hallway. 

I glued all my element's to the canvas, then once dry I applied gesso over it all.

I then dropped randomly some pigment powder over the canvas and spritzed with a Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

I added the word 'Beautiful' and then flicked black ink using a small thin paint brush to add random spots to the finished look.

Most of the materials used in my project are from my Craft Box Monthly subscription, Craft Box Mixed Media Subscription and Craft Box Snip Art Subscription.

Find out more information about these subscriptions and all the gorgeous products you can buy from CRAFT BOX 

 Have fun and happy crafting.
Lot's of love 

Mixed Media Album Pages

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all well. I have some mixed media album pages to show you that I created a little while ago.

I absolutely love creating mixed media pieces. I love the feeling of it all coming together, you start off with just a plain canvas which after adding embellishments, materials such as ribbon or lace, painting and inking and spritzing,  you then achieve a thing of beauty! 

I also like the fact that with mixed media, you just have to use your imagination and let your creativity flow.

All of the products and album pages are created using my Craft Box subscriptions. The Monthly Box, Mixed Media Box and Snip Art.

Hop over to the CRAFT BOX WEBSITE to see more information on how to subscribe and also all of the gorgeous crafting goodies available to buy.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have fun and happy crafting,
