A Very Pink Frame!!!!!


I'm a bit late with this post, sorry, but have had mega problems with the Internet.
Yesterday, for some reason a BT man decided to fiddle around with our
telegraph pole and managed to cut most of us off!!  Unfortunately I was mid post
for the latest DT project and lost the whole lot grrrrrrrr!!!!  And before you say it....
........yes I know, I should copy and paste it before something like that happens!!
Anyway we did manage to get put back on today so I have the phone
 and Internet again but my mobile refuses to find any network coverage
 as that gets a boost from the Internet.
What I should have posted was that this week on
The Craft Barn Blog, it is PaperArtsy week and here is my sample.....
I absolutely loved making these flowers....

This week on TCB Blog!!!

Hi everyone,

Gosh isn't it warm again???

I'm not a great lover of the heat, what with hot flushes and Tamoxifen, I just
get soooooo warm!!!

Had alovely day in France and Belgium on Monday.
Got the early train through the tunnel at stupid o'clock and got back about 9.30pm.
I was absolutely shattered but it was a nice day out and I got a little sunburnt sitting
the beach.  Wow, their beaches are so big and sandy, the same cold, murky looking
English Channel but hey, you can't have everything!!!!

Anyway, over at TCB Blog, we have all been playing with products from Artemio.
I chose to decorate a wooden box with paints and papers!!

I love working with wooden items!!

So, if you want to see how it was made, then you know where you have to go....

Hope you like it.....
....this is what I used .....

Spellbinders - Shapeabilities -Foliage
Viva Decor - Precious Metal Paint - Purple
First Edition Paper Pack - Dreamcatcher

See you soon,

More Colouring Techniques!!

Hi everyone,

Sorry, meant to post this earlier!!!

Today on The Craft Barn Blog I have a project using Paper-Soft-Color.
Many of you will remember me demoing this and it is a truly lovely
 product to work with.

It is used with sponge applicators and many find it easier than using inks.

I made a card for todays project and if you hop on over to the blog
you will see how I made it!!!

Hope you have a good weekend, is it going to stay dry?????

I doubt it!!!!

See you soon,

Jane x

Almost forgot..............

You really must pop over to The Craft Barn website and take a look
 at their summer sale.....

There are lots of goodies to entice you!!!!!!

Have fun!

Well, this week it is colouring techniques on The Craft Barn Blog.

 The Craft Barn Blog this week!!

We have all been working with Stampbord, which if you haven't had a
play with it yet, do have a go!!!
This week it has been combined with the lovely Impression Obsessiion Stamps.
I chose to use the lovely Roses......

The stampboard was coloured with Copics!!

You can find all the details over on the blog!!

Been really busy this week, had a class with Art Impressions Sunday,
The Craft Barn Club today and another class -

a rest after that. 

I must say a big thank you to all the lovely ladies who have been in the
