great news!!!

Hi again, some news to share with you...

Joan, one of my friends from the Queens Road Summer Market here in Watford is opening up a shop in Watford (Rebel Pebble, 98 The Parade) on Saturday for local artists & craftspeople to show & sell their work, & I'm renting a couple of shelves for my cards, canvases & more!!!

Thought I'd share a few of the things I've made recently for the shop ...

First some canvases:
Japanese cotton & lace

crackled canvas, wooden butterflies

textures with die cuts & embossing paste, heat-embossed butterflies

And then some hearts (which still need ribbon to hang!)

& lots more ideas, just need time to make!!!

Back soon!     Kay

Tim's tags - April 2014

And I'm just in time for this month's "Tim's tag" - Tim's tag here

And this time, I had most of the 'bits & pieces'!!!

The trellis Framework I bought with the voucher I'd got from Tim & Mario (from Simon Says stamp) in the draw for February's tag!!! (how's that for a good choice of goodie!).  I love this die!  & I love making the paper roses with Tim's tattered pinecone die!!  Here's the roses in detail...

The colours I used were:  antique linen & forest moss paint & peacock feathers ink for the background and peacock feathers & vintage photo for the trellis.  I edged the shapes with vintage photo, mowed lawn & spiced persimmon & I coloured the roses with milled lavender & peacock feathers.

Back soon!     Kay
