My Craft Room

Hi All

Today I thought I would show you my craft room, it's in bit of a state but by this afternoon it will be tidy again hehehe.

As I walk from my lounge to my craft room, I am lucky because they join by glass doors so I can still chat with hubby at the same time as I am crafting and keep my eye on him when he is ill,

This is one side where I keep my inks, paints, pens,chalks, oil and other pastles, sprays gesso etc, below that I have 2 sets of white drawers that I keep ribbon and flowers in and on top of that my folders of nessties and other dies, below the home sweet home I keep all my lace and charms and Tim Holtz things.

Some of my punches and under those shelfs quilting things

Then we move to the other side I keep all my button collection in the grey drawers and jars, love buttons especially vintage. Stamps above that, these are the ones I use the most. My racks of paper and I have 2 more the other side of the room next to that all my quilting stuff. I keep my copic refills and spare pens above the telly. Below the telly I keep jewellery gems and stones, next door, drawers I have more stamps and albums and die cuts.

 Moving alone this is more of my jewellery making things and boxes of stones and other gems plus kits.
Oh the little drawers are from my pro markers so cute.

More paper and jewellery things

Moving along my little desk I keep my cameo and sewing machine and you can see into the lounge,
Under the desk I keep sketching pads, journals and painting canvas's

The wall near my patio doors I keep my stensils, more ink pads, glitter, more tim holtz and punches.

Back to the beginning and my other table I keep my other machines and gismos on and my lovely copic

Geez I have far too much stuff  Vagabone, cuttlebug, big shot, grand calebra, a silhouette cameo and cricut, binding machine, but I love it all lol.

My Beautiful Granddaughter

Hi everyone

I hope your all well and having fun crafting, I am much better now and feel on top notch and ready to craft like mad.

I would like to share with you a mixed media scrapbook page I did of my granddaughter Caitylin, this picture was taken when we went to Turkey, so many to do!!!  not all like this I might add as this was an experiment but I do like it.

I used paint,stencils, inks, layers of Bo Bunny papers, textured paste, beads, flowers, lace, punches, bling, pearls and pins oh anything else I could get my hands on hehehe.

I hope you like it as much as I do, working on my second one and then I have orders for Valentine cards I must get finished. I do have projects for some workshops I am doing and I will show you those later, you will all be sick of me posting too much if I give you them all at once lol.

Have a great day and I shall see you all later, thanks for popping in to see me I love your visits.

Mixed Media Today

Hi Everyone

A bit of mixed media art today for you, this is a canvas that I did using my new goodies I got for my B/D the first time I have had a chance to experiment again and I loved it.

I used acrylic paints, wax crayons and stencil's on the background and different washes to get the effect I wanted, just go with the flow I say and I did ! not knowing what the outcome would be and really had a good time in the process. 

The hearts are 3 dimensional but unfortunately I could not get the picture to show that but I am sure you will get what I mean, I also used modelling medium mixed with pink paint on the small one to get a raised effect.

The house I just doodled along with other bits of doodling using pitt pens and finally added text that says Home is where the Heart is, oh forgot to say I did add a bit of string to the top.

This is the first chance I had to post since before Christmas as I have been ill, I caught the worst cold going and it went straight to my chest and completely floored me, never felt so ill in all my life and I only just getting myself back together again but still have the most horrendous cough that I cannot shift but hey ho I am back on my feet :-).

Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had a good one, thanks for popping in to see me and I shall be hopping today round your blogs.
