About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Shades of any colour

Welcome to a new Challenge at International Art and Soul this fortnight is an easy one to get you started.  This one is Shades of any Colour.  I struggled with this, I tried shades of yellow, shades of red and finally settled on shades of blue.  I've used a docraft Gorjuss image with books for the main feature.  I've used distress oxide and distress inks in Mermaid lagoon and Salty Ocean for the background of the mdf heart.  The gems are an aqua colour but they don't show up too well in the photo.  The dots around the text are nuvo drops and it is edged in blue glitter ribbon which is also what I used to hang it with. 

The text reads: "Reading and books heals the body mind and soul" ⒸSallie Baker 2019

And yet more snow.

Wow this is quite something, we've had yet more snow.  Something we don't have very often so when it does it's best to just enjoy it.
