One of My favourite things, Mermaids!

This year one of the things I'm going to be working on is my drawing skills, I love stamping and will still be incorporating that into my art journals but I really want to discover my own style and see what I can do. Anyway here is my mermaid, I'm quite pleased although as you can see she has no face, as currently I'm terrible at faces! So we will just have to use our imagination. Happy new year to all. I will try my best to put something on here once a month for now as things are not good at home (poorly mother in law living with us) Here's to staying positive and learning to draw this year! X
I'm going to enter this at "Try It On Tuesday" my first entry of the year!

Wind beneath my Wings

Friendships really are important, good friends love you for you and accept who you are. They can be someone to laugh with, share your troubles with, and cry with. I'm blessed to have so many lovely true friends. So this canvas is for them, with the lyrics from Bet Midler  " Wind beneath my Wing", from one of my favourite films Beaches. It makes me cry every time. I'm going to enter this at Try it on Tuesday.

September and back in a routine!

So glad to be back in a routine and have a bit more free time again. I've been really busy with my dyary journaling, making loads and loads of birthday cards, and I've even had some Christmas orders! So over the next few weeks I will be putting bits on here. Its my daughters birthday soon so I've made her this card which I would also like to enter at try it on a Tuesday. I'm not very good at sewing but its something I'm working on. Anyway as long as my daughter likes it I'm happy.

She also loves cats and I think she will like this cute button.

Inside of book box

Had fun finishing off the inside of box today. It would maybe make a nice box to keep hold off happy memories and notes. Or a diary, or even your favourite book.

In my beautiful garden

Hi got this wooden box that looks like a book from my local charity shop and I soon got to work using dylusions paints, distress oxides that I used for the background.. I also did some stenciling and some stamping with some mini flowers from Indigo blu . I then used cut outs from a napkin that my friend Chris gave me for my beautiful birds, thank you. Some of My die cut outs for the flowers and feather,that I think I had used brusho when I was doing backgrounds one day. I think I will be brave and enter this into Try it on Tuesday. Love the weather today think I will go for a nice walk, get the teenagers out and get some more inspiration. Have a fab day whatever you do x

Make a wish upon a star

I was lucky enough to see the shooting stars last night and my daughter and I watched them lying down looking up and making wishes. Its motivated me again in my craft room, I've been a bit flat lately and unsure about things, but maybe my wish came true.

So using the only scrap piece of card I could find I got to work using Distress oxides for the star sky. Indigo Blu stamps for the stars and trees. Finger painting the water using dylusions paints and then I added Indigo blu unicorn sparkle for -well just because it felt magical and I love glitter! This cute little mouse is my daughters stamp who is only 11 but I love it too! Stampendous house mouse designs.
Hope you get to make a wish too x
