About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Rhedd and Rosie's Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Challenge #20 - Christmas is Coming

Its time for another new challenge over at Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog.  Our winner has been chosen from all the fantastic entries we had on our last challenge, so if you haven't already make sure to pop over and see.

This fortnights challenge is - Christmas is Coming.  We were very kindly supplied with wood pieces from Craft Shapes Torbay to create our DT piece for this fortnight.  Please take a look at their wonderful designs.

Here is my DT piece for this fortnight

I created this wooden plaque from a piece of wood out of my dads workshop.  I gessoed it all white and edged it in TH DS Victorian Velvet.  The wood pieces from Craft Shapes Torbay I painted white and then embossed using Stampendous Frantage embossing powder.  I love this stuff it creates a great texture and leaves a fabulous sparkle.  I cut out snowflakes using a paper punches from my stash in silver paper.  I added some laces and trims top and bottom and then finished off with a cluster of white WOC flowers from my stash on either side.  I thought it would be nice to create a Christmas plaque in colours different to the usual traditional Christmas tones.

Craft Shapes Torbay are offering a fabulous prize to this fortnights winner (wish I could enter too lol)
