About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 36 - A little sparkle!

Evening!! I have been busy crafting nearly all day - had a deadline and wanted to get everything in the post before the weekend. And, as ever, it's all secret, so I can't share with you. I did, however, get one thing done today that I can share.

I've been meaning to do a colour chart for my Spectrum Sparkle pens - and just never got round to it. But I was watching Sheena on Create and Craft this afternoon, and it reminded me that I hadn't yet got it done. So, after visiting the post office, I sat down at the computer, made a chart, printed it - and then settled down to colour it in.
Sparkle is notoriously difficult to photograph, but I'm really please with how this came out. And I love the pens - such a gorgeous range of colours. And the clear is just perfect for adding that sparkly to touch to almost anything!! Now, I really hate using glitter as the mess just does my head - so I very rarely use the stuff. In the past I've used the Luminarte Silks Clear Glaze when I've wanted a bit of shimmer - but these are really sparkly - without the mess!! Which means I can now add sparkle without having to deal with the mess!! Brilliant!!
