The squares have been punched out and layered. And the Christmas greeting has been die cut.

Framed Beach


Challenge time again at The Creative Artiste Mixed Media challenge.


I saw this frame in a shop, it was just coloured stripes then and I saw this beach seen in my head.
The shells, seaweed and bone fragment I picked up off a beach. I can't help it if I go to the seaside I have to go on a hunt for bits and pieces I may be able to use. The lighthouse and compass are die cut and coloured with distress inks. The fence, sea and sand in the bottom right is a good old rub-on. I've had it for years and it worked perfectly on this project. I just put a picture I'd taken recently in the middle.
I was really pleased with how this turned out. Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow team mates have made, there are some lovely ideas. 

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges
Die Cuttin Divas - Anything using diecuts
TTCRD - ATG

Flowers and Leaves


It's new challenge time at the 
Altered Eclectic Challenge.
The theme is, as always
Anything Goes


I've done a small canvas piece this month. The background is done with alcohol inks. I love this technique. I have used embossing paste through a stencil for the brick and the leaves. But I have put glitter over the leaves.


I have used metal leaves and flowers on the bottom corner and velvet leaves along the top edge. Some very different textures in this project.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges
