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.

Probably my favourite craft right now is with parchment, both traditional skills and Groovi, very relaxing and calming to do.

More Parchment and Groovi

This is a recent piece of parchment work I have completed.  It was a special commission for a family member for a wedding.  I had originally been asked to do a parchment card but eventually I decided that it would be better to mount it on to a canvas board.

The flowers and borders all came from Clarity's Groovi system and just involved moving the parchment around to get all the flowers into the positions I needed.  The writing in the centre panel was from the Groovi Club Baby Starter Kit and were the perfect size for this project.

The backing colours were requested to fit in with the wedding themed colours, which, in turn, were from the groom's regimental colours.  The parchment is mounted onto amethyst coloured mirri card and then onto a canvas board painted with acryllic chalk paint from Paper Artsy.   There is a small amount of pricking and cutting around the central panel.
