Coming Soon ....

Just a little mention that I am working on something which I hope to show you soon. It is a distressed tag book full of beautiful nature type images which I am loving at the moment. This is a picture of the cover but it is still a work in progress....

Altered Envelope

I've had this envelope lying on my desk for months, thinking that I might do something with it and every time I talk on the 'phone, I move bits of paper around on the envelope while I am talking and never do much beyond that. However, I have now finished it and am quite pleased with the shabby French vintage look. These are all small scraps of paper and lace with a few buttons sewn on, a couple of eyelets punched and two flowers painted. Oh, and a little embroidery. I have already started on another one!

Paper Whimsy Pay It Forward Project

Following on from the PW "Secret Sister" Swap previously mentioned, those people interested could make something from some of the goodies they received to pay it forward to another member of the swap. Names will only be swapped immediately prior to mailing in January. This is my piece:- an altered book cover using a few of the goodies I received.

December Mind Wind Open Challenge

This is my entry for the December MWO blog challenge. We had to use the image provided (which was black and white) - I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with this as I was expecting a Christmassy-type challenge this month, so this image threw me completely! I played around with it in Photoshop and have changed the blending mode and added different elements and filter effects.

Voting starts tomorrow, 8th December, so if you would like to vote for me, please click the link and post your vote. Thank you.

Yay, I Am Going To Be Published!!

All my hard work has at last paid off - I found out today that my Marie Antoinette paper bag book is going to be a Spotlight feature in the new Marie magazine to be published by Stampington & Co next April. I can hardly believe it, I am so chuffed and can't wait to see how it looks in a classy magazine.
