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 87 - Easter Treats!!

Evening!! After a very rushed post last night (which was mostly due to the quantity of wine drunk at our lovely Easter family meal) - I have a little more time tonight. And I have been playing with one of my non-chocolate Easter Treats. And that would be my Spectrum Noir Vintage and Metallic Sparkle Pens. As well as making my usual colour chart, I have also been doing some colouring.
Ages ago, I bought a couple of "Daisy Mae Draws" Ready to Colour Art Books from the Hobby House. This image is from the "Days of Summer" book, and I have used Peacock Blue, Hearthside and Sage from the Vintage set. I also dipped into the other sets, using Red Berry and Holly Leaf from Autumn/Winter, Rose Quartz and Moonlight from Spring/Summer, and Sterling Silver from the Metallics.

I intend to make it into a card, so also used some watercolour card to make a couple of background pieces to tone in for matting and layering. I ran out of time to do it today, so will hopefully have time another day.
