Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Craft A Scene for June - By The Sea, week 1

This is a scene I really like.  It reminds me of little harbours in Cornwall, one of my favourite areas of the country, particularly if you go out of season.  It is my first offering for the Design Team for Craft A Scene for June.  The rules state that it must be a scene, with a background and a foreground to fit in.

The main part of the scene is one large stamp (at the moment I cannot remember who makes it, having just disrupted totally all my stamp storage again) but I then added the large seagull, and the flight of birds and the little rowing boat, all three of which come from the Harbour set from Clarity Stamps.

I did all the colouring with Derwent watercolour pencils, which I think are the best in the world and just happen to be made in this country anyway.

There will be other scenes to, hopefully, inspire you over on Craft A Scene if you would like to have a look.  Then see what inspires you about "By The Sea" and have a go this month.  Come on, celebrate the warmer weather and join in with this month's challenge.
