This neat little booklet is the result of me completing a class designed to increase confidence using a sewing machine for mixed media work. It worked.
Bride and groom hearts
I've only needed to make a handful of wedding cards over the years and so I don't have many suitable images in my stash, but I do have plenty of card and glitter.
White and blue wall hanging
After a three year break, I picked up a new tapestry loom and started weaving again.
Stained glass window
Inspired by the combination of one of the recipient's own photos and a technique I had seen using alcohol inks and tissue paper, I created this translucent stained glass window card.
Simple Valentine heart
I rarely make minimalist "clean and simple" cards, but sometimes circumstances leave me with no alternative.
OPA: Sparrow portrait
I have wanted one of Jenny's bird prints for as long as I've followed her on Instagram, and I finally managed to get this sweet etching of a sparrow.
Walking the dog
When I'm short on inspiration for a card I pick a technique or style I've been wanting to try and start from there.
January may not be my most creative time of year, but I had an idea and this kitty close-up is the result.
I have been known to participate in "Christmas in July" before, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've made a Christmas card in January.
A few blog updates
I haven't done much in the way of creative endeavours so far this year, but I have managed to focus and update a few things on the blog.
Ahead in 2023
Happy New Year! Writing the round-up for 2022 naturally set my mind thinking about what I'm going to do this year.
A quick round-up of what went on in the blog this last year, including reaching a milestone in the last couple of weeks.
OPA: small red robot
It's been a while since I last bought a piece of someone else's art, but as soon as I saw this little robot I just had to get him for my other half for Christmas.
Penguin with trees
It turns out that the dragon card for my mum wasn't actually the last Christmas card that I had to make this year, there was one more left to do.
Dragon and Christmas star
The last Christmas card of 2022 is an individual card for my mum. I'd run out of cute rodents so I coloured up this cute dragon with a wooden Christmas star instead.
