About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

Mixed Media World 18 - magical/fantasy

Mixed Media World challenge 18 - magical/fantasy
http://mixedmediaworld.blogspot.com.au/2016/09/mmw18-magicalfantasy.html

I have decorated the cover of a mixed media journal I am making for my second grand daughter Emily.  I hope to be able to make a journal for each of my 4 grand daughters to leave some encouraging verses and samples of theirs and my artwork


I painted the cover with purple lumiere paint that I haven't used for years.  Painted stencil with white and pink lumiere paint.  Painted the edges with Purple iridescent creative medium.  Added paper lace down the left side.     Printed fairy sentiments from Create with TLC and pasted on top.  Printed copies of my grand daughters fairy drawings and pasted on top.  Added fairy sticker.  Doodled with white pen.  Added pink rhinestones (they don't show very well in the scan).
