It's my younger nephew's 17th birthday and, short of inspiration, I turned to my collection of things that have caught my eye while reading blogs or Twitter. Nothing specific leapt out at me, though there was a technique that used inked-up embossing folders to create a simple card and that reminded me that I haven't… Continue reading Metallic cogs
Series: Wanderlust 2021 #13 I don't know whether I was just in the wrong mood when I watched the video for this week's Wanderlust lesson, but it just ended up annoying me. I liked the technique she used to create the background and, although I don't use them in my mixed media projects, the pocket… Continue reading Wanderlust: pocket of tags

Series: Wanderlust 2021 #12 Planned serendipity seems like a bit of an oxymoron, but Carolyn's class is a blank-page-block breaker that creates the conditions for something interesting and unplanned to happen. The starting point is to pick a few (she suggests five) supplies without considering how they'll be used. I grabbed some acrylic paints that… Continue reading Wanderlust: planned serendipity

I kept it really simple for Mother's Day this year. There wasn't anything suitable in my stash, but I wasn't in the right mood to create two cards from scratch. (And my craft room was a bit of a disaster area which isn't at all helpful for the creative muse.) So I used my little… Continue reading Mother’s Day
Series: Wanderlust 2021 #11 A new theme this week and new themes always start with a class from the host, Kasia Avery. Unlike the detailed, real-time, step-by-step classes, these ones are more of an introduction to the theme with a chat from Kasia and a speeded-up video of her interpretation. The hope is that it… Continue reading Wanderlust: woodpecker
A change from the usual Copic markers and a bit of an experiment. I printed out the Chinese Lanterns digi stamp from Power Poppy and traced it onto vellum with a liquid chrome pen. Once that was dry I added patches of Distress oxide ink onto the back of the vellum behind the lanterns and… Continue reading Just coloured: chinese lanterns
