Under the sea

This is an art journal page I created. I am never sure where  I am going when I start, just let the piece evolve. Well this page appears to have an taken an underwater theme. The background base is acrylic paints and I have used various stamps and a sweet poppy stencil dragon using it as a seahorse.

It was a friend of mine's 70th birthday last week and because I know she loves flowers I decided to make her a box of flowers card. Well I only need half an excuse to make these box cards as I love them.

Hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine this week I certainly have. Long may it continue.

Lost Mojo

Two cards to share today as I haven't been very productive lately.
The first one I made one day when I wanted to do a bit of crafting but couldn't get inspired. Anyway I pressed on using a piece of paper I had made some time ago using spray inks and some flowers made using Dreamees stamps.

This next card I made for my husbands's birthday using Visible image stamps and Distress Inks for the background. Quite simple to create but quite effective I think. 

Really must try and get my mojo back.

What a month

Well it's been a month since I was last here and what a month it has been.
A round of Doctor and Hospital visits and stays for hubby, plus various incidents to cause us a load of grief.
Hoping that things will get better very soon as there is only so much stress you can cope with.

On a brighter note I am going to share some projects I have managed to create.

This first card I made for a very dear friend's birthday later in the month. She doesn't blog so this isn't going to spoil the surprise.  I used Sweet Poppy stencil with texture paste and mica powder heated to create the bubble effect.

For this next one I created the background with Distress Inks and stencil. The main image is a Visible Image stamp which came free with Craft Stamper magazine.

For this one I used paper from my stash and the little image is Clarity and the circles Bee Crafty. Blue and brown is one of my favourite colour combos.

Hopefully things will have taken a turn for the better when I return.
