About the Artist

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

Crafty-Emblies - 8th Challenge - Wings

Well hello everyone.  I can hardly believe it but we are already at our 8th Challenge over at 
Crafty-Emblies and it has gone live today at 12 noon.

We had some super entries last month, well done all that entered, 'Male' is always a hard theme.  The Winner has been announced so please pop over to Crafty Emblies to see who it is.

Our theme for this month is 'Wings' as chosen by our owner and creator Judie. I really enjoyed creating for this theme as it covers such a broad variety of options.  

This is my DT creation for this month



I took a Michael's Birdhouse for this project and 6 mini spools from my stash to mount the house on.  I used a Crafty-Emblies picket fence and covered it in Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing powder.  I had an old plaque which was given to me from a charity shop find and I used green embossing powder mixed with green floss to create the grass effect.  The Birdhouse I painted in a self mixed cream colour of Acrylic paint.  I added lace and trim from my stash to dress the roof.  I took the Crafty-Emblies Swan Wings and hot glued them onto the base of the birdhouse, I think the effect looks pretty cool :-).  I perched a Crafty-Emblies Bird in front of the opening along with a little metal butterfly also from my stash.  To decorate I used a mix of WOC flowers, pearl bling, handmade stick pins, metal butterflies rose trim wrapped around the spool legs and also inked up 2 of the Crafty-Emblies Leaves to build my flower arrangements onto.

I hope you like my creation, I really appreciate all your comments.

What a gorgeous piece... made me smile when I saw it - as I also have a bird perched outside a birdhouse, but it's the opposite of this beautiful shabby chic design! Great inspiration, thank you!
