Mini Canvas Workshop

Well I did say I was going to try and catch up, so here I am, catching up

This was a workshop I took with Jennie Boxall from The Artistic Stamper at Pickleberry Crafts [way back in February this year ,oops].

We had a great day playing with inks, stamps, die cuts etc., and this is what I came up with.

A mini canvas attached to a small canvas

Lots of bits and pieces from Tim Holtz

Die Cutting using one of the journalling Tags

Paper from Tim Holtz I believe

This was the first time I had used the Distress Pens.  Need to save my pennies to get some of these.

Well, thats all for now.  Will post more very soon.

Take care

Bad Blogger !

OH BOY !! I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted.  I am a very bad Blogger.

I won't bore you with all the details but needless to say, life and work has got in the way over the past few [read FOUR] months.

My Craft room is now up and running.  Will post a few photos when I tidy it up a bit. 

I have done a few workshops at Pickleberry Crafts [who sadly are closing their bricks and mortar shop at the end of July] with the lovely Jennie Boxall from The Artistic Stamper. 

I am just coming to the end of an online workshop, Evil Elixir, with the inspiring Mr Andy Skinner and have already started another one with him, Timeworn Techniques.  I have also signed up for yet another one due to start in September, Excavation.

Two very different styles of Art, but equally enjoyable.  So, if anyone likes getting, inky, painty and generally grungy then get over to Jennies Blog at and

Over the next few days I will be posting some photos of things that i have created during these workshops.

Speak soon and take care
