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

More Mixed Media October challenge - anything goes optional orange

More Mixed Media October challenge - anything goes with the option of orange - use a little or a lot
http://moremixedmediachallenge.blogspot.com.au/

I have done another journal page in the journal I am making for my 2nd grand daughter.

I rarely use orange so this was a challenge for me and I made a bit of a mess.   Painted journal page with white gesso.
Made frame with orange Distress crayon
Background green and blue crayon and used water brush to spread colour.
Wiped baby wipe over butterfly stencil.
Coloured tag with crayons and baby wiped 2 butterflies and stamped sentiment from Greeting Farm Glory to God clear stamp set with black ink. Layered tag on top.  Then I made the mistake painting over with distress collage medium which destroyed the sentiment stamp.  So stamped again with green ink.  Added punched flower.  Drew around tag with the orange crayon.
Stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set further down the page.
Used flower stencil with distress inks and gel pen.
Stamped the girl from the Glory to God set, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.

I would like to add my journal page to the following:
