(Belated) Happy Birthday Jackie


Sorry it took me so long to blog, but work seems to be getting in the way of life at the moment.

I'd got some fab domino's a while back and was looking for an excuse to play with them. Jackie's birthday seemed like a perfect opportunity. I applied alcohol inks, the stamped image and stickles. The background is acrylic paint layered using a resist technique.

Circle Gift - Tile

I had a couple of gorgeous tiles left over from the kitchen and just had to use them for something.

The first is this one, it's an image transfer finished with alcohol inks and a chipboard swirl covered with Stewart Gill patina EP. I drilled holes to thread the ribbon threw for hanging and secured the ribbon with a pair of earings.

Meeting the Tooth Fairy

I went to visit my lovely friends Eva and Lucy on Friday. We had great fun, and they put on some fabulous shows for me. Eva also showed me the gap where she lost her first tooth, and told me how the tooth fairy came to visit. Lucy told me all about the tooth fairy and how she wore a lovely pink dress.

Well I had to go in search of the tooth fairy and see if she was as nice as the girls promised.

I was lucky enough to meet up with her as she headed home after a long night collecting teeth. She is a lovely fairy and we had a nice little chat. She told me what lovely little girls Eva and Lucy were, and how she was so happy she got to visit their house and collect Evas lovely shiny bright tooth.

A different style of Pendant

I really enjoyed making these pendants last month, and it was lovely to try out different media and see the different results.

This pendant is made using an image transfer on mother of pearl and embelished with tiny jewels and pearls.

Make a Moo- Brown and Beige

My friend Nellie runs a great challenge site to Make a Moo or Two, every Friday.

I've been threatening to try out this fun size for a couple of months, but with my favourite colours on the menu this week I just had to play.
