Where Did That Come From !!

Morning lovelies and hope that you are having a pleasant day xxx

Thank you also to all of you who popped on over to take a look at Sherlock x

Following a spot of hands on crafting thought it was about time for
an experiment!

Here is the starting point - 

What I've named a "Sun Flower" because it's made
from a whole "Sun" Newspaper

Here's what I came up with -

The Yellow and Black Background is entirely my own Design

Digital Embellishments from Daisy Trail

Something Different for me

Hi lovely friends and followers - hope you are well - don t know where
the time gets to in Craft Land but what I do know is that it is a load of fun.

A little while ago I was delighted to be asked to join the Design Team of
an exciting new Company who promote Crafting with Quality.
Their Products are 2nd to none and I have enjoyed having the 
opportunity to try them out.

I enjoyed making this Box Card very much -

It is mainly created from the Radiant Butterflies Collection
with a few bits from my scrap box for the Die Cuts including
Creata Mirri Card.

Hope you like - love and hugs Judith xxx

Blog Update

Afternoon lovely followers and friends xxx

Well I am determined to update this other side to my Crafty life 
every couple of days to keep me motivated to continue in this
if not diffierent but complimentary direction.

Being up to date if ever one can be up to date with
Design Team and family commitments I decided to 
make some Coasters.

I do not take credit for the Design or method as this was
leaned at a friend's workshop.

Here s my Work in Progress and hoping
to reveal the resolved items in a few days time.

Have a lovely afternoon and thank you for your lovey support.

Love and hugs

Hey folks well having got my sewing machine downstairs it got me to thinking about 
what could I experiment with this evening - then the news was on again about the 
awful weather that we ve been experiencing and the ferocity of the seas.

Then I go to thinking about days gone by and tiny boats out there with little 
protection and kind of came up with this experimental piece -

Denim and Calico Fabric 
Matching Threads

3 layers of fabric were placed together
and machine stitched along wavy lines
inspired by lines in the sand
Fabric was then slashed between the 
machine stitching then embellished
with hand stitching 

Love and Hugs

Up Cycled Lamp Shade

Hi folks from a very wet Lancashire - off to a workshop a bit later on
they are always lots of fun but before I go I thought I d share with
you a Rag Lamp Shade - Health and Safety Warning here -
this is for Home Decor only and is not connected to any electricity -
Have a Great Day 
Love and Hugs

Old Lamp Shade
Strips of Fabric

I stripped down an old Lamp Shade
and cut strips of fabric to approx 4 inches long
I then tied the fabric strips on to the frame and 
trimmed appropriately

Birth of a Different Direction

Evening fellow Friends and Bloggers this Post serves to explain the Birth of this new Blog.

Some of you will be aware that prior to getting involved in Paper Crafting I have a much
longer history in Textiles and Mixed Media.  With this in mind this Blog is intended to act as 
a Journal  into further Mixed Media Crafting.

I very much hope that you will join me on this journey and look 
forward to your constructive criticism - I do not expect that all of my
experiments will be a success so please feel free to say so -
what could I do differently or even not at all!!

For now I wish you all a Happy Valentine s Evening

Love and hugs Judith xxx
