Sending smiles across the miles

Another play with my sunset colours. This time I turned them around for a pretty gradient and teamed them up with silhouette pines.

Dream Big

I've had this magazine freebie dreamcatcher stamp set for a little while, but never really done anything with it. So I decided to stamp it up and have a crack at being messy!

Sunset Poppies

Another try at painting poppies. Still playing around with loose watercolour flowers.

Life's a climb, but the view is great

Having a play with some sunset colour combinations and learning how to do silhouette painting. This stamp quote fitted the scene perfectly.

Love Lives Here

My sister just moved into her forever home so I wanted to make her a housewarming card. I had no idea what I was doing with the painting but I tried to recreate the amazing view she has of the ocean from her hilly, tree-lined abode. It was fun and kind of successful too.

Lest We Forget

Being Anzac Day here, I thought is was only fitting to attempt to paint a poppy flower. This is my first attempt (x3).

Flight of Fantasy

I love my Kit & Clowder monthly classes! Even though I don't always complete them on time, I know that I have access to all of the theory and videos for when I have time to sit down and colour. I loved the techniques in this class, the galaxy background, the two-toned dress and mulit-coloured wings <3.

Perfect doesn't exist

I love this Rose Garden stamp and die set from Uniquely Creative. I played around with their Uniqolor brush watermarkers after white embossing the stamps.
Love how simple and effective this technique is!

40 & Fabulous!

Another day of isolation and another attempt at a watercolour cherry blossom wreath.

With love & best wishes

This was my first attempt at a cherry blossom wreath using my watercolours.

Crochet Granny Squares

Having all of our commitments cancelled means that I have much more free time on my hands so I'm putting it to good use by teaching myself a new crafting skill - crocheting! I'm intending on creating one of these most days (while watching movies with the kids) so will hopefully come out of social isolation with a new blanket!

Dudley TP

There are some amazing companies who are generously giving away some beautiful images for people to use while social distancing. This is another one of them from Whimsy Stamp. Meet Dudley TP by Dustin Pike.

Missed birthday

I joined in with the Stamp Anniething Social Distancing event which they have running on Facebook. This was one for the freebie images. I think this will be used many times over the next few weeks for all of those birthdays which will be missed.

Card ingredients include:

Live More

This card was a request from my elderly neighbour who asked for a card for a librarian who loved to garden, and this was my result.
