My 1st Twinchie

Hello

I am back today to share my new addiction….Twinchies

I do not make New Years resolutions but when I discovered this “world of minatures” I was intrigued and wanted to join in.

I naturally fill whatever space there is open to me, whether it be a card or scrapbook page or doodle.  If I start with a large piece of paper I will almost always fill it.  So thinking it would be a great challenge to restrict size I started on my journey of Twinchies.

Here is one effort using a lovely stamp from Hobby Art.

I am addicted.  I cannot help myself.  The worst thing is I am even less likely to throw any trimmings away because I automatically think, “I can get a Twinchie out of that…”

I would love to hear if anyone else if a Twinchie addict.

TTFN.

Pastel Pencil Heaven

Hello on this rainy Sunday afternoon.

I am not gloomy however, due to the fantastic post that Mr Postman brought me yesterday…..A belated Christmas present from OH!

I adore pencils. I think they are beautiful and nothing makes me smile more than seeing freshly sharpened points on pencils ready for playing with.

So what do will I use them for?…..It can be only one thing. One of my beautiful doggies.

I love looking through photographs, however, I do not enjoy organising a pile of 500 into some sort of order.  However, I have found a selection of possibilities to try, just need to narrow down my choices.

Or these….

I always think this is the most time consuming part of any project….Actually deciding what to do!

Hoping I do get on with it pretty sharpish I will share my results.

See you again soon.

Bird of Paradise Flower Background in Blue

Hello

I unfortunately have not had too much time for “playing” this week due to a little girl being poorly, but I do have a “work in progress” to share, using a very beautiful Bird of Paradise Flower stamp, amongst others.

Now that my gorgeous little girl is better I will continue with this background and transform it into a finished piece.

I hope you have a great weekend. See you again soon.

Floral Butterfly in Blue

Hello

I have 2 cards to share today on the same theme.

WP_20140117_001

I started by stamping 2 flower stamps in an oval shape by masking the first image.

I then added 2 label dies and a butterfly, together with some punched corner detail.

In the second card I used an alternative label shape, a different corner punch and added some flowers with the butterfly.

Hello

I hope you had a nice weekend.

I spent mine getting messy with both acrylic and watercolour paints making backgrounds ready for stamping.
