Art doll swap

I joined an Art doll swap on Art 42. I wanted to make a doll and then paint her. I made the body out of paintable calico then painted then with acrylic paint. I knew I would have a hard time giving her away, so I made twins!! Now I get to keep one, trouble was which one to keep...............

Gingham ATC

This weeks theme for our ATCs in the google group I belong to was Gingham and Plaids. Here's mine

Prima travel journal

I spent a wonderful hour the other afternoon with my favourite designer Fan Balzer on Prima live . I followed her free class to make this lovely Travel journal. I did treat myself to the proper Prima papers as I loved them, but you can do it with paper you already have, as long as its double sided. Each concertina page has a pocket with a journaling card to pull out and write on. I am all ready now for my Austria Holiday in June!

It is my Great Nephews birthday this week and so a great excuse to bring out the Colour my World space templates and make this cheeky alien card again. This time I used the scaly embossing folder to give him some texture.

Favorite Quote 4x4

For this weeks swap in the Google group I belong too the theme was Favorite Quotes on a 4x4 canvas. Here is mine

Tissue flower

This little flower was so easy to make, I used the Inkylicious Sprinky colourz spray from The Fruit Pixie to colour plain white tissus paper, I used the wonderful Raspberry colour. Instructions and products available from my gallery at The Fruit Pixie.

Button heart

I have seen these in shops but they are quite expensive. The Fruit Pixie do some great bags of buttons and all you need to do is add some wire. Pop over the the Fruit Pixie for my instructions on how to make them for yourself.

Altered jigsaw

Here is my March kit for Altered Pages. the theme for the month was games and as a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan the phrase " The game is afoot " just jumped into my head. The kit will be available from Altered Pages very soon and would make a great gift for any of the great detective fan, its great fun to, why not give it a go.
