Happy Birthday Mags

It's Mags' birthday today so I can safely show you what I made for her. It's a bamboo tile pendant. Thanks to Lottie who provided me with the inspiration. It's simply a bamboo tile that I painted with purple H20's, then stuck a pic of a geisha girl on, varnished the whole thing. waited for it to dry then glossy accented the front so that it looked like glass! I hope you like it Mags!

The Butterfly Project

Here are 3 of my butterflies for The Butterfly Project. 2 are inked and stamped, the other one is painted using Tim Holtz crackle paint. huge thanks to Dan for turning me on to this project (and the butterfly template!). Please please take the time to read about this project and, hopefully, make your own butterflies to send!

Things i have to put up with!

A crafter's life is never simple, well, a crafter with pets thats for sure! This is what I've had to cope with this evening! A Wilma woo under the desk, and a Kitty whiskers on my knee!!

Mermaid canvas

I made this for my friends birthday. It's made using a stamp from Third Coast Stampers (who I love). Huge thanks to Paula who first put me on to these because I saw her gorgeous card using this stamp in Craft Stamper magazine! I stamped the image in Stazon then used acrylic paints to build up dimension. The shell's were from a Hawaiian lay that I was given on my honeymoon (hey, there's no room for sentimentality in crafting LOL) I am pretty pleased with the result if I do say so myself. It actually turned out more or less to how I pictured it in my head :o)
