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

The Team
Please take time to visit us all :-)

and little old me :-)

And without further ado here is my first DT Project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit

 I altered this lovely box from the MDF Man using one of my favourite paper lines, Prima Lyric.  I started by covering the whole box in Black Gesso and then covered inside and out, top and bottom in this gorgeous paper line, distressed around the edges and edged in TH DI Black Soot.  I trimmed it around the bottom lip with some pearl string from my stash.  I spritzed some Cosmic Shimmer spray on the top, added a metal drawer pull, some Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish dies (cut from the dark papers in the paper line), created one of my little leather bound books, added a key on a chain, made some handmade flowers with a Marrianne Creatables die (again from the paper line), added a few peachy hip roses and pearl stemens.  I also added some handmade and hip rose flowers along the bottom tip of the box and also some of the Cheery Lynn dies, cut in to smaller segments.  Then to finish off I rubbed some White Gesso to add a lovely distressed feel.

Please come over and support us and join in with our first Challenge for your chance to win this fantastic Alterable Pen Caddy.  Isn't it just screaming out to your to be altered? ;-)

I so hope you like my first ever creation for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  
I can't wait to get started on next months creation, in fact I think I may just make a start today.

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate you all.

Will be back soon with more creations for you.

Great Big Huge Hugs
