It's that time of the week to snoop around other peoples workdesks, if you want to join in go over to the Stamping ground where you'll find out all the details.
These are a couple of pages from the art journal class with Neil Walker that I attended in the run up to Christmas that I haven't shared before, these were my favourite two pages and I want to use this technique on a few of the pages in my new Dylusions art journal that I was lucky enough to receive from my daughter at Christmas .................... guess who does all the Christmas shopping in this house! ;-) 
Hope you all had a great Christmas.
 I'm looking forward to playing next week whilst I'm still on holiday. We have visitors everyday this week, so not so much playing time.

Merry Christmas Everyone

           I wanted to share these final Christmas cards that I made at a Craft Barn class with the lovely Helen Chilton.
We used the Lynn Perrella stamps by Paperartsy, paint, embossing powders, metal, crackle medium and distress inks.
I'm also entering the top card into the Inspiration Journal blog challenge as it has the word Joy on it.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas

WOYWW? 185 Snowflakes

I've got a bit behind with my Christmas cards this year, time flies by too quickly. So here's a quick post showing you the cards I've made so far today since getting home from work. I've still a few more to do but will try to get around a few WOYWW desks before I get going again.
If you want the details on how to join in the WOYWW and have a snoop at other peoples workdesks have a look at Julia's blog.
The background is stamped with free stamp from Craft stamper and I've used the Tim Holtz snowflake rosette dies

Art Journal from Class 1

There's a quick post from today's class with Neil Walker at the Craft Barn in Lingfield. 
I had a wonderful painty, inky day with my crafting friend Francesca who is kind enough to drive me there, thanks Francesca :-)
 Background paints on this double page were all Fresco paints, Eggplant; Beach Hut; Nougat and Limelight. Charcoal, cut out images and black in. 
Looking forward to class two.

12 tags December…

The final of the 12 tags for 2012, here's December. Go over to Tim's blog to see what it's all about.

I have the blueprints on my wish list, so instead I used the Sizzix snowman die and snowflake. The snowman then was embossed and inked with various distress inks, broken china distress stickles and rock candy stickles plus a bit of ribbon for his scarf. For the background of the tag I used broken china and pewter distress stains they were also swiped around the edge of the white card and ribbon that went through the tag hole. The letters that I die cut from wordplay also put through an embossing fold to give a bit more texture.
