Gothic Elegance

Artistic Thanks

Sometimes the prettiest things happen by accident, you had something completely different in mind or you didn't know what the finished project would look like but you had a play anyway.

Shimmering Incolor Birthday

Whoop! Everyone loves a project with something that shimmers, right? I know I do.

The new Incolor Shimmer paper is beautiful and whilst my photos don't quite capture just how beautiful… Continue reading Shimmering Incolor Birthday

Origami Blooms

You know when you sit down at your craft table with a project in mind, but then something just doesn't go quite right so you end up with something completely different? Well that's what happened here, a misjudged measurement meant the project took a very different turn and ended in something else, equally beautiful. The… Continue reading Origami Blooms

It was one of her recent pieces of work that inspired this card and the… Continue reading Pastel Love
