Full of Joy...

Yes, that's the name of my next class at The Craft Barn on Saturday 29 November.
We're going to be decorating  these large letters to make a Christmas bit of artwork for your mantelpiece that you can keep getting out for years to come:


I've chosen a turquoise, red and green colour scheme, but you can choose whatever colours you like, so if you fancy coming along and having some fun, just follow the link above!

Thanks for looking!

Something to brighten up your day....

Some flowers from the latest Ellen Vargo set from PaperArtsy.

These are lovely tall flowers and lend themselves well to a bit of Kaleidacolor on glossy card:



The background is an embossed resist technique using Papercrafter crayons.

Thanks for looking!

Mixed Media Class

.... at The Craft Barn on November 9th, which is a Sunday.
The picture on the website is actually a prototype - we decided to do a slightly larger 12x12 canvas art board using lots of the Pebeo mixed media products.
So, if you fancy coming along and having a go at lots of different techniques, this is the sort of thing you'll be making:

It's Hallowe'en....

Well, almost!
Over on the Crafty Individuals blog they've got a spooky challenge this month as well as a Christmas one - plenty of choice.
For my first two projects I went for the spooky and birds!





Particularly enjoyed making the last one, mixing up lots of different stamp sets.

Thanks for looking!
