About the Artist

I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 10 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

CraftyHands Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Challenge #5 - Anything Goes

I can't believe it but that is the 4th Challenge finished over at CraftyHands Challenge Blog already.  What fabulous entries folks, wow so so many entries.  All fabulous but a winner had to be chosen and chosen it has been so make sure to check out our winner.

This fortnight challenge #5 we are going for 
'Anything Goes'

This is my DT project for this Challenge







I love making Mini Albums and this one was so much fun.  I have made it using the Split Paper Bag format shown by Laura Dennison on YT.  I always enjoy making mini's/memory books and this one is one of my favourites so far.  I just love the DCWV Mariposa papers and I decided to really break into my 6x4 stack for this one.  With the papers being so beautiful I didn't really embellish this one at all in the inside, but dressed it up a bit using my MS Daisy Border punch.  The cover is made from some mount board and painted in black gesso.  The DCWV paper has been edged through out with TH DI in Black Soot which I think adds a real depth to the papers.  I embellished the front with flowers from my stash, The massive blue one is a gorgeous one sent to me from my friend Jane in America and matches so well with the blue butterflies on the papers.  I added some swirly bling and a pearl butterfly and was very lucky to receive the gorgeous topper with 'Friends are Flowers that never fade' from Gina in a RAK, thank you again Gina it is the perfect colour for my album.

I hope you like my inspiration creation for this Challenge, I have a YT Video showing it in more detail
