About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Recycling:

It's Recycling fortnight over at http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

I've recycled the border on the image and the large die cut, I didn't like the colours on it even though I enjoyed playing with the brushos.  I used a piece of card I had already cut up for the card base!

Christmas Tree Decorations

I've been rather tied up with family commitments and then really rather ill lately.  Moving around has been tricky, I've no energy and really tired.  I am hoping that given that the antibiotics finish tomorrow there is a chance that the tiredness will ease up a bit.  However, I fear it may take a while to return to normal.   Anyway I'm rambling and the point I'm trying to make is that because of being unwell I've not managed to craft lately.  I have however managed to put together twelve Christmas Tree Decorations with the help of a kit from the beadery company.  I'll put you all out of your misery now and show you some photos.

Girl Power

It's girl power fortnight at Ike's World Challenges and what better way to celebrate the power of women than by acknowledging the women who started the fight for equality for women.  My art journal page celebrates the victory that the Suffragettes had when they got votes for women.

Halloween Colours

It is Halloween Colours fortnight over at http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/.

I've followed through on the Halloween theme but rest assured you don't have to, you can just use those Halloweeny colours of orange, green, purple, black etc.

I've used brushos for my background, Chic Pumpkin texture paste for the tree and coloured the image using my favourite colouring medium Derwent Colouring Pencils.

Edited photos

I'm not a fan of editing photos, if it cannot be done when the photo is taken I tend not to bother however I had some issues with my camera when I went to Exmouth and really wanted to see what some of the ocean waves photos would look like in black and white so reluctantly used GIMP to alter them.  I would stress I haven't done any other alterations, just turned them to black and white using grey scale.

Things that fly

It's flying over at Ike's World Challenges and I couldn't resist doing something inspired by my childhood.  I loved the books by Enid Blyton as a child and flying made me think about the wishing chair stories and how I'd love to create my own story about it.
