Happy 70th Birthday

This is my contribution to an 8x6 journal for a very special Lady who celebrated her 70th birthday recently ( her photo is blurred because she is also very modest) She is an inspiration to us all in every way and if something can be done believe me she will give it a go with her own twist on it even if it means inventing the tools and materials =0)
I stamped grey marbled paper with a flourish image and gold embossed, I then added two chipboard decorative accents to the corners which I inked and embossed with utee.

Sizzix cards...

These are a few of the sample cards and album covers I made for the classes I taught in Galway this weekend, the first class was a mini accordion album demonstrating how to make up the album and decorate the panels with tags, pockets, photos, stamped images, ribbons etc and the second class showed different techniques to achieve with sizzix dies layering, chalking, inking, doodling and even icing a birthday cake in the flavour of your choice =0) .....I really enjoyed the classes , it was great to meet up with new like minded people and despite the terrible weather I had a great weekend in Galway.

Gothic Arch " Shades of White "

The Theme for Gothic Arches this week is " Shades of White" This was more difficult than I first thought, I love using white but to only use it with little or no other colours was strange because no matter how many layers and embellishments I used it still looked bare.I painted the background with acrylic paint then layered textured papers, flowers, buttons, ribbon and some metal charms around this woman image which I love.

Tilda and Co Challenge.

The Tilda and Co challenge this week was to follow a sketch. I drew the cake and added doodles a butterfly and pink beads, then added diamond glaze to finish.
