A card

Just a quick post today of a card I taught last month

papers from the Damask Garden collection

Its clear

hello me again
this time I wanted to do something  a little different, the best ideas come as you are creating something else, so quickly did I move on. Its been a while since I have created with acetate I love working with it as it gives me the opportunity to create dimension.

 the reverse side

I have painted the chipboard black on one side and cream on the other side
On the acetate I have used colour texture paste and stamped images over the top
yes they are the same photo I am waiting on my nephew to hand over some more photos to put into his album
I have used on my pages
Papers from Meg's Garden
as well as Imaginarium chipboard which I have designed
 and Couture Creations die cut folders Ornate Rectangle and Royal Oval
B Line leaf stamp

CSI 128

I cant believe how time has flown by this year, is it because I am getting older or because we live and strive to achieve so much in a small amount of time. One of my favourite quotes was " you make time" now I am finding my self saying "I couldn't find time," or is it just I am slowing down  with age and cant achieve so much in one day.
I looked at the calender this morning, and realized we are coming up to the winter solstice which is actually tomorrow to be exact this year, I always like to know when it falls because I can then look forward to the days gradually getting longer, the funny thing is, I never look for the summer solstice only the winter.
I have been busy thou, some may think other wise but soon all will be revealed and I am looking forward to being able to share what I have been staying up to the wee hours in the morning working on. that too could mean my graphic design assignments.

Today however I have a page to share  which I have solved  for CSI Case file  128 as Meg's Garden are sponsors this month over at CSI
I will admit that the crime scene was a little difficult to solve at first, one element put me off completely and then all of a sudden it was all very clear how to put the pieces together and I was able to solve the case and got straight to it, rather quickly.

so here is my answer to file 128

to help me solve CSI I used this evidence
 numbers, door/window, flowers, chalkboard elements, distressing,  ribbon/bows, frame, punches, chalk/pastels.
and stamps from  B-Line



now off to solve another case up in my craft room but I fear this crime scene will never be solved

Cherished treasures

Just a quick share using the Correspondence Collection from Meg's garden and chipboard from Imaginarium.
 I have sprayed my chipboard with a flat white paint. I have set up  a little spray station outside from an old box which I have cut out a side so I can safely and conveniently spray my Chipboard in.
I have torn and distressed my papers as I find it welcomes that technique.

 I have used some pigment ink on the words

some exciting new papers coming soon stay tuned

Just a quick hello

Thought it was about time I posted something on my blog it has been so neglected of late.
Finding myself not achieving as fast now days more like slow and steady to the finish line.
For my Birthday this year I received a photo tent I have been experimenting with it and my camera settings as we are coming into winter very soon and the days will be gloomy I am thinking this will help me a lot once I get it right. So here are some photos I have taken of my last creations, Using papers from Meg's Garden  the Damask Garden Collection.

These are projects which have been taught in class

  This card will be taught in a June class I have played with B Line stamps they go very well with my papers
