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

Daphne's Diary

I recently got introduced to this beautiful magazine called Daphne's Diary by my friend Sharon. I absolutely love it! Its beautiful, pretty and has all sorts featured in it by very talented people. Plus poems, art work and craft ideas. There is gorgeous paper in the magazine to use as well. I've been making cards with the paper. I feel very happy.

The canvas with the couple on the beach I bought this weekend from a very talented lady at an art festival local to where I live. It was lots of fun and nice to be involved with the community.

Hi, back from a beautiful holiday in Southport with my family, here is my holiday page in my Dyan's Dyary. These are my own flowers I've drawn and I feel the flowers and colours represent the lovely weather we had. I'm going to add in some inserts as I ran out of space! We made lots of memories and I feel very lucky to have such an amazing supportive family.
I did look all over for a craft shop but as I don't drive it's difficult on foot. I did find one, that was sadly empty. I don't know if they've relocated or just closed down, but it made my heart sink a little as lots of small shops seem to be closing down, as they struggle to keep up with the online competition and larger stores. I love my local craft shop and would feel lost without it.
If you are off on your holidays or get a day or 2 off work, I hope its relaxing and you get to be a bit creative and have fun!
