It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 30 - ANYTHING GOES

Hello everybody             

It’s Digi Choosday day again. 

Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

This week our challenge is ‘ANYTHING GOES'. 
We hope  that many more of you enter and look forward to seeing lots of your marvelous entries. 

AND also this week there's something special from me as well....scroll to the bottom to see.

So, my make this week is the first of my creations using the fabulous new Meribelle Mermaid digis and combining her with the wonderful Starfish and Sandcastles collection I have made my very first shaker card.  The papers, and the lighthouse and the yacht and sentiment that I've cut in bubble speech from Serif Craft Artist are from the Starfish and Sandcastles collection but the Meribelle Mermaid is from the Big Kahuna Collection or the special three for two offer called Meribelle Friends.  I've used Serif to make a circle layered decoupage where she goes gradually smaller in size but layered onto top of decreasing circles and then with a frame made from the starfish paper from the Sandcastles collection I've sandwiched acetate in front and decoupaged the fish behind and added some sequins.  The rest of the layers have been added over the top and then my die cuts are some little seagulls that I've cut with kraft card and then edged with a black pen in a faux stitching.  For the edging of the card, I've used the rope from the Serif package as I thought it tied in the whole card.   Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below.

Here is my make for this week’s challenge:

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - In Bloom

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. These Tuesdays definitely come round really fast!!
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘IN BLOOM’.
I love searching the internet for new things to make and also getting inspiration and as soon as I saw the craze for making teacup art I instantly knew that this week’s challenge would fit this project perfectly.  I had a teacup that had a wonderful soy candle in it and was wondering what I could make with the empty cup.  Here is a step by step picture tutorial of my make (with the exception of one ingredient which is magic and you'll have to scroll to the bottom of my blog post to find out what it is).  I resized and printed some of the flowers from the Eden Collection and put them to one side.  I gathered my ingredients...  cup and saucer, bird cage, toadstools and reindeer moss and then using the magic ingredient started to assemble my make.

I then added the flowers and…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.

Well:

1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…
