please visit the blog for all the details <3

I have made some Valentine cards . I had bought an item from CuddlyBunny crafts on ebay and got a free magazine with inspiration and their was a tutorial in there it had differenti tems but was great to use the ideas !! I have used design papers  and matted them onto papermill linen card.
I then added some calico squares and then used a dot stamp with oxide ink over the wooden hearts. I have stamped on the design paper for the sentiment and affed some seam binding and bling to finish .

I have used a circle puch on the inside and placed a tag in there using a die 
from The trinket Parlour

I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's day and thank you for stopping by my blog

Mixed Media Makes January

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I hope you are well and it's perfect weather here for crafting with all the snow and rain we have had in January . I have finished the Petite Vue class by Toni Burt online with the last 3  more sketches. Needing to practise perspective more but am inproving which each one !!

 Here is another I tried myself using a photo of a vintage door for reference .
 Cant wait to try out some more gorgeous buildings.

Another class I thourghly enjoyed from Toni burt is Loose Ladies.
 I have learned to practise /sketch them first before adding any paint lol !!!
 Really enjoying drawing again as I loved to when I was very young ;0)

Here are my first practise sketches on watercolour paper following the classes

Here all the loose ladies on canvas !
A different texture to paint on which was fun was harder to be loose
 but each layer dried quicker than the paper .

I have tried an couple of awseome youtube videos with Marta from Maremi Small Art 
First two quick cards with her abstract circle technique quick and fun to do  !


This decorated notebook with Marta's awesome old door technique
so enjoyed making this loved the end result !

Lastly I was inspired by a tutorial from Tiffany Solario on Youtube to make this canvas !!

I hope you are inspired to get crafty
