I Seem to be ....

... Smitten with these little's a digi kit form Daisy Trail, I just love the retro look... maybe a reminder of Babycham! Remember that stuff?

I've layered up the images in a small wooden box dipped in glitter.

Added some snowballs and Snowtex ( love that stuff)

Stood them on little easels.

And made a Santa too!

A little spooky house...

It's amazing what you can find in the £1 store.

This... hasn't seen the light of day for an age... I started off with great enthusiasm but as you know my mojo just took is making a  comeback but it's slow going. This is another new stamp from Crafty Individuals..great if you like to use portraits in your art journals and like me you cant draw them!

I used the large flower stamp too and embossed it with white.

added a little colour with Copics

and of course gave her a crown and a tattoo.

More... stamps from Crafty Individuals.. an all over flower pattern

ideal for colouring whatever the medium you use.

I used Copics

Instructions for making the frame can be found here
the only difference is I cut an aperture in the stamped card and glued it to the front of the frame.

I used the leftovers to make a card.

Not Much...

..Gluing and sticking going on but there's been a bit of sewing...
Being a little on the large size and a certain age stylish summer cotton tops are hard to come out came the sewing machine

The Alder shirt dress has everything I wanted.. fitted around the bust but lots of room around the middle for a cool comfortable fit.

I shortened it to fingertip length to wear over cropped jeans.

I just love the yellow elephant fabric.... from Regency Rags, it's a lovely soft cotton lawn.

The pattern needed the usual adjustments.. a FBA...a dart out of the neckline and an added smidge on the side seams... It worked out so well I made another, you can see the fabric in the first picture. 
It seems the mojo just might be making a comeback... fingers crossed.
