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 if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Hearts



Wooden quote hearts

For this project I bought the heart shapes but they are simple enough to make if you are good at woodwork {I’m not!} or have someone who can do it for you. 

I gesso’d the hearts first with a very thin layer so that it wouldn’t take so much ink to cover them.  I inked using dusters…and used shaded lilac, peacock feathers and picked raspberry distress inks.  I had to apply a few coats though so I did this over a couple of days until I got the depth of colour I wanted.  Then I added the liquid pearls around the border.  I stamped the quotes onto acetate and left them to dry with the liquid pearls overnight.  Then I glued the acetate on using glossy accents to create a quick and easy project.



As some of you know I’ve had a tricky time lately but despite the ongoing issues craft is now very high on my agenda once again.  Thank you for bearing with me during this time.
