You may be wondering what's making me feel funky!! It certainly isn't the after effect of teaching Year 6 today, believe me!! It is, however, the fact that Funky Hand have a Design Team call going on at the moment - and I thought I'd apply!! Part of the application is to post a couple of projects that I am particularly proud of, in order that my style of crafting can be seen. Now, as you can see, I've technically included more than a 'couple' but it was difficult to choose just two.
It was the Funky Wordbooks CD that first got me interested in Anice's work so I have to include one. This is using the Blue Magic selection from the Dreams Come True CD:
My next choice is a 8" boxed wedding card that a friend commissioned me to make. This was my first foray into using embossing paste - and I love the Dreamweaver stencil. I love this because of the white on white textured layers which makes the red heart pop out!!
I am a great fan of Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion, and have made lots of fusion-ed items to give to friends for their birthdays. One of these friends asked me to make some coasters for her to give to her Mum. The problem was she wanted a full bloom rose. Now, this was before Sheena brought out her Rose Bloom, so I had to come up with something myself. Working from a photo, I came up with this. I'm really proud of being able to take all the techniques I had learnt from Sheena, and translate them into producing this.
I've put this one in , as I was proud of myself for trying something new with it!! I used my sewing machine to stitch down the sides! I also created it with just white card and one ink pad!! Quite a feat for me!!
And finally, I have to be proud of this card, as it is the card I won my first (and -it has to be said -my only) Challenge with. And yes - it was the Funky Hand 'Blue' challenge earlier in the year
So, there you have it!! I will just have to keep my fingers crossed and will let you know what happens.
