Halloween Tree

Here is a picture of the tree i made for the UK Art Raffle.The idea is to make something related to the monthly theme , Octobers being DARK. Then you send it in and this entitles you to a place in teh raffle. At the end of the month one person is drawn out and they get all the raffle entries sent to them .Nice idea and it has been running for 3 months , this was the first time i had made something for it.
Next months theme is CIRCLES.

Card Making

As much as I love crafting I feel these days that I realy struggle with making cards. One upon a time I found it realy easy. So last week I poped round to Gail's and whilst there I knocked up a couple.I liked what I did so made more than one of each design. Then this saturday at the crop instead of scrapping I had another go and made some more, so over this week i will post them all on here. Andrea if your reading this hope your impressed LOL

The Fabric CJ

I think i mentioned that im involved with a fabric CJ . Im sure Gail talked me into it , not realy my comfort zone but im having a go. So here is a picture of the first entry i have done .Hopefully they might (and that's a big might) get better as i do more. The second entry i did i forgot to take a photo of it. Will see if i can get hold of one so i can put it on here.

Away from home

When im away from home i like to be able to still do a bit of glueing and sticking. Last xmas a friend bought me a 2 foot wooden skeleton to make , but not only did i have to make it she wanted me to cover the pieces in paper first and then make it.
She bought herself a little owl to do and thought a 2 foot one would be great for me. So he is started and i am now taking him with me when im away from home working for a week or more. I have no idea what hotel staff must think

I have used Basic Grey Black Tie on him and think it works rather well. Just hope i have enough of the paper to finish him as there is rather a lot of him still to do.
(so if anyone looking has any odd"n"ends of Basic Grey Black Tie i would be gratefull , just drop me a line)
will post updates of him from time to time and i will have to give him a name at some point.

Couple of ATC's

Been away on holiday , but im back . Not done alot of crafting of any sort but feel the need to today. So tonight i think i might do some cards. In the mean time here are 2 ATC's i have made. The base of the ATC is made with Tyvek , a great medium to work with , i just love heating it and seeing it change.

The CWU North East Women's Group are taking part in the Sunwalk in Newcastle 7th September. It's all for breast cancer and you do it in your bra. So instead of having boring bra's i thought it would be nice to jazz them up a bit. There were 6 to do so Gail , Hannah and my self got to work Friday night and produced the following. there's one missing (that's yours Joanne) as I am waiting on green pearls to arrive to finish it off.
But here are the rest

6x6 pages

A couple of 6x6 pages i have done for our glue and stick class we hold on the last Monday of the month. Again like the cj's i had been doing you use a chosen stamp to creat a 6x6 .

Ive used a Glimmer Chip butterfly on one , told you i was liking these and a lovely grungeboard swirl painted with crackle oaint on the other one. Lots of fun spraying and painting

Banner Swap

Ive used some of the lovely Embossed Glimmer Chips as the wings on the hearts , colouring them first with Glimmer Mist and then rubbing them over the top with Staz-on. I think they are very effective and must order some of the new ones for the shop.

Here are the 5 banners i have made for a banner swap on ukScrappers. They are all very similar and i must admit i thought they were going to be a bit bigger , but after getting the measurments from Monika's blog for them i realised they were smaller than i had in my mind.Not to worry had fun doing them.
