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!

Anything but a Sqaure

Good morning and welcome to the “anything but a square” challenge at: Ikes world challenges

Images used: 


Products used:

Faded Jeans distress ink
Paisley embossing folder
Liquid Pearl
Paisley die

For this project I have hand drawn around the paisley die and hand cut it {I was without a die cut machine for this project} and folded it into shape.

I used the cuttlebug to emboss the paisley pattern on the outer side of the easel and painted the embossed parts with H2Os

I die cut a smaller paisley shape and hand wrote the quote “Write your secrets in the sand and trust them with a mermaid.” 

I edged the quote with liquid pearl dots and added liquid pearl sea life embellishments {to make these I set liquid pearl in a sea life silicon mould}.
