Sidmouth album

Before I found the wonderful world of mixed media I was an avid scrapbooker but since I have fallen in love with MM I have really struggled with my scrapbooking . I would forget about it but myself and Hubby are very keen photographers and so have loads of photos I want to create with. Simple you might think, just use your paints etc to create an album but I have found that VERY hard. This time though I was determined to have a go, its not all the way there yet but I am pleased with the result, next time I can jump that little bit further into my love of mixed media. So here is what I created Sidmouth is a beautiful old seaside town on the Devon coast, we love it there and have visited often but this was a holiday for a very special occasion!
The Lym Regis page didn't scan very well as its all 3d at the bottom using molding paste covered in sand, with shell buttons and beads. My favourite is the relax page. Great book too!

book pages ATC

This weeks theme on Altered design is to use book pages on your ATC. I had found a old reckoning book from when the UK went from old money to £ and pence, so I used a page from that to make this ATC

Learning to felt

I have been teaching myself to felt, needle felting and wet felting, here are 2 little purses I have made, the grey has a pink inside and the grey one a pink inside. The design on the front is needle felted on the beads added. I still have a lot to learn, getting the same thickness on both sides is the next problem I plan to tackle, but the are not too bad for the the first and second try.

50th Birthday card

As I said before my hubby turned 50 while we were on holiday, he is as keen on music as I am on crafting so it had to be a card something to do with music, well here is what I came up with, a card with a Jimmy Hendrix paper doll and then an electric guitar and case!! He really liked them!
