New Project

Good Afternoon and Welcome

My Crafty friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we all today - getting ready for the weekend?, I hope it's a good one
and whatever is on your agenda, just remember to enjoy !!

I would like to welcome my new followers and hope you enjoy your visits to my
little blog and I send big hugs to you all.

I have some news to share with you, I have been asked to join another Design Team
and its Creative Craft Cottage - how cool is that? boy I am amazed to think  that
I have not been up and running a year yet and already I am now on 4 Design Teams.

Its so exciting when this happens and I must say it boosts your confidence  no end.

I will be taking up my post with their next challenge which is on the 7th February
but the challenge is already up and running for January, so why not jump on over
to their blog and see what's going on?

Back to today and I thought I would try a new venture - doing a bit of art -
For my first attempt I think I have done Ok- what do you think?


       1. The MDF heart is from the works and at only 99p was a snip.

2. I covered the whole heart with white gesso and once dry I
       took a stencil ( one of Imagination Crafts) and used one of 
the Imagination Crafts Silkies (Red Satin) to create the 

3. At this stage I must say I just stood there looking at it waiting
for some idea as to what to do next. HA HA I thought I 
wonder is gilding wax would work (Well I did tell you
I have never done anything like this before) so in for a penny
in for a pound out came the wax and I gently rubbed it on.

4. Again the same question and blank look on my face What to do?
then I remembered these sentiments I had purchased from Tonic
so with Shiny red card I die cut out three and adhered then
to the heart.

5. To complete I adhered pearls around the edge, placed a
key embellishment and tiny red silk flowers (from my stash).

And there is my little piece of Art work !!

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will call
again soon.

Until Next  Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
