In the Pink....

It's been a while since I was last here posting on my blog. Due to my daughter being so poorly and spending 3 months in 4 different hospitals, I finally got the hospital to discharge her to me, rather than her going home on her own.What with Covid-19 keeping us all on lock down, being here I can give her the care she needs. As a result though I've not been able to craft, hopefully I will get more time soon and get back in the swing of things again.
My project for More Mixed Media was made several weeks ago...the theme is "Pink", as always it is anything goes, but there is a colour option.
I hope you can join in with the challenge.

My pages were built up using scraps of paper, gesso and some napkins and texture paste.

I used a wash of white acrylic paint and daubed around the images of the flowers and butterflies to soften the edges.

To finish I added the sentiment and the images of the children.

Romantic Weekend.

More Mixed Media have just launched this months challenge. The theme as always is Anything Goes, so long as it's mixed media ..and it also has the option of a colour twist.
The colour twist for March if GREEN.
I love the colour green, there are so many shades of it, it also reminds me that Spring is on it's way.
My Dt project this month is an altered book. By gluing pages together and covering them with gesso, they are ready for anything to be thrown on them.

click on image to enlarge it.

For these pages I collaged some scraps of paper then went over with acrylic paints, dried with my heat tool, then I applied gesso across the pages. 
After the gesso was completely dry I added the fab images from a couple of paper napkins.

  I applied green through a stencil and then added the stamps and sentiment before sealing the pages with modge podge

The lovely couple were then added to finish the page.
I hope you can pop over and join us in our challenge.

So this morning Tag Tuesday have just posted this fortnights challenge.The theme chosen by teamie Wendy is...Black, White and Red
I have kept my tag quite simple, a stamped image on a white tag, adding red for the mouth and edges of the tag.

A little bit of Frost.

It's silly o'clock for me here this morning, I'm not usually up very early, but my sleep pattern is all over the place again, thanks to's an absolute beast at times.
Tag Tuesday have just launched their fortnightly challenge  ( the last 2 weeks have just flown by )
The theme this time around is Winter Scenes and has been chosen by teamie Michele.

I used water colour paint to shade the sky, although the photo really doesn't show it that well. The bad weather here makes everything so dark, almost impossible to get a good light.
I stamped the trees twice by using the masking method, then I coloured the tree trunks and shaded the tufts of grass.
The sentiment was then stamped and once dry I went over with some stickles glitter glue to make it look a bit frosty.
To finish I distressed the edges of the tag with ink.
I hope you can pop along and join in with the challenge, you can find us here at
