Gorgeous image, coloured with Flex markers, the little tags etc were a google find, just resized, ribbon stash and DP is from one of my fave pads by Enogreeting, called Paper Designer, gorgeous thick paper...
So, that's it once again, another week flown by on big wings I think...
IF I find any challenges I will add later...

For now, have a really nice weekend, enjoy, the weather has been colder this week, but not as wet as before, in fact two days in a row I got washing dried on the line, glorious sunshine but abit parky....that's fine by me...lol..

Mixed media heart...



Hi everyone, just adding this one before I forget, made it last week when I was messing about and just thought I'd share...
Mixed Media Heart, love playing with this sort of thing...
Well I started with by cutting four hearts out and bonding them together, made it nice and ridged..

At this point I left a gap in the center, had a whole other design in mind, but that changed as I went along...I used a TH stencil with some texture paste
Using lots of acrylics, powertex balls and just about any old thing that was laying about,also added some bent wire and twisted it about to say Love....  then painted it all over and added crackle medium, after that was finally dried...Yawn.....I rubbed in some deco art colour for depth and then sprayed it with a sealant...phew...
If you never tried this then why not have ago, I love to just simply play around and you can use up so many things, quite amazing

....I will be adding this into the following...

Thanks so much, love to see you...enjoy your week...xxxx

Got the Thursday blues....



Hello there, hope all is well in your world...Me!!!!!! bored beyond belief...my back is driving me mad, I can barely move so I can't do anything, my family are away and all is spookily quiet, no grand kiddos running in and asking for this, that and the other, weird indeed....and my eldest son Lee is 41 tomorrow...omg...ok for him he looks younger than his years, but me...well, what can I say.....
ANYWAYS..I looked through and noticed this I hadn't blogged, so something to do and hope you'll like...
The image is from All Dressed Up and Wendy has so many gorgeous images to chose from, she also very generously has a freebie page for all her followers..you can find out more HERE.....I printed this onto CraftersCompanion Craft card, coloured with Poly's and white charcoal, cut into a tag and added a bow, think the ribbon is from Bertie's Bows, DP from last years Xmas stash
That's about it for now,  if you got this far, please let me know what you think, just so I can pass abit of time on reading...haha...Thanks for your lovely visit....xx
