I have been enjoying working on some Digital Art projects
and cardmaking for family and friends Birthdays.
I designed a couple of new art pieces (wall art) for our house.
Just taking my time and playing with ideas.
For our bathroom I made this piece with credit to Foxeysquirrel and Vintaj (Designers) for elements and papers used . I upcycled an old silver coloured frame and it looks great in there.
For our dining room we had bought a new clock and I used the colour palette of that as my inspiration for this piece...Lots of blending, layering and soft hue effects for the finished piece which is framed in a beautiful white frame.
Lastly for this post it's my brother David's Birthday today and I made this card for him.
Digikits used to create this design were
Make a Wish & Kitschy Kitchen - Sahlin Studios, Pin up Sweethearts - Daisytrail
I have a few more projects underway...
so when time permits will share what has been happening on the blog.

Hi Everyone, Rob and I spent New Year with family in Somerset which was enjoyable. Along with long walks on the beach wrapped up warm and Poppy dog being as zany as ever.
Wishing everyone a Happy 2017
It seems to have taken me awhile to get back into the swing of things upon our return but with the cold weather outside I have been enjoying a little digital play this afternoon.
Yes you may have guessed that with Valentine's looming it would be love themed.
Here is a layout created using a few kits combined....
Angie Hinksman - Heartfelt
Daisytrail - Parchment Flourishes
Intermixture - Algera Designs
Some colour edits, transparency effects, blending and shadow added.
So here's to a creative and adventurous year ahead

** Merry Nearly Christmas **
Today I am showing a couple of handmade things I created this season
A little shabby chic shaped hanging decoration
I crocheted some flower shapes and added mixed buttons.
Arranged and stitched them onto a triangle of felt.
Interspersed twists of natural vintage style ribbon to add detail.
Then glued a 2nd triangle on the back to hide all the stitching.
A mini mixed media canvas
I made the frames using air dry clay and a mold.
When dry they were painted gold and glittered.
Painted and glittered a small canvas as the background.
Added lace and card then arranged the frames on the canvas.
Decorated with a few little elements and some stick on lettering.
Hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Have a Sparkly Christmas everyone
Love & Hugs

It has been a long time since I blogged and with the glitz and sparkle of Christmas crafting, tree decorating and gift wrapping I thought it would be nice to show a few digital layouts I have made so far this festive season. If they inspire you please feel free to create your own layouts based on the ideas shown.
A card front with repeated imagery, lace, word art and delicately blended snowflakes and wording.
Lots of blending, mixed tones and some magical stars.
Layering, shadow, colour editing and clustering.
Adding line edges adds depth to the matt and layering on this.
I have nearly finished a hand crafted project too which I will photograph and write about very soon.
Whatever you are creating, hope you are having fun.
