A New Beginning

Welcome to my new blog home, do you like the new look? I'd been toying with the idea of setting up a new blog and surprisingly it was more straight forward than I'd imagined. I've even suprised myself by acutally doing it. I hope it will now be easier for you to keep up the date with my crafty happenings - if you want to that is!

My website is still up and running it's just that from now on I'll be blogging from here and for my first post I have a couple of crafty projects to share.

First up a birthday card I made last minute as normal. I like square cards and this one is nothing more complicated than a pretty background paper stamped with some butterflies with the addition of a stamped, coloured and cut out butterfly and flower button. The quote stamp comes from The Artistic Stamper

Next is an art journal page I did wanting to try out a mask technique with paint. These pages are 14x22cm and I've cut them from watercolour paper. The only reason I did them this size is that I had some oddments of cardboard I am going to make the cover out of. I hand drew and cut out the mask from some paper. I got the idea from some porridge packaging, it's funny where inspiration comes from but quite often I get ideas from packaging. The collaged flowers are cut from some Amy Butler paper.

I hope you'll pop in again for a visit, see you soon.

Do you ever make a card in plenty of time? You made me giggle. The masking is great on the journal page and I spotted those flowers before I read the description. Happy New Blog!
