Merry Christmas!

I love these ice skates - used to own a pair exactly the same as a child. We used to skate on the pond and canal just outside our flat.

I hope you enjoy the holidays.

Christmas time (almost!)


Nothing says Christmas more than a Christmas tree! This was made using the waste material from the miniature MDF tree – it’s a lovely shape and size. The background was stencilled in light blue just to offset the green branches. Decorate the tree with Ice Effect paste and then raid your stash for some ornaments. You could also use the leftover ornaments from the MDF kit. Cut the tag to whatever shape you like.

Through the porthole...

I’ve made a circular panel this week using the Stamperia Songs of the Ocean collection. The artwork in this collection is fantastic. I chose a background paper and added some colour to make it coordinate better – you can always add colour to your patterned paper – you don’t have to use it as is. Then I stencilled over the top with some Titanium paste. Then I took the Ephemera packs and built up a scene using the porthole as a base. I cut out the sea in the middle to raise it up a little so that the other pieces could be interwoven and layered up, creating more depth.
