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!

Life's Rich and COLOURFUL tapestry

I've had a difficult couple of weeks and I needed to release the stress.  I had no idea where I was going with this.  I always have a few stamped/digi images coloured to chose from but nothing inspired me {yes that's a first}.  I started by trying to freehand a polka dot background with gelatos and distress crayons but it wouldn't come.  I then used a scrapbook template to create a hexagonal background, once done it reminded me of patchworking so I added the stitching using a perfect medium pen and cosmic shimmer sparkle red embossing powder.  Whilst rummaging for an image to use I found this gorgeous image from Ike's Art and instantly the text came to me.  "Smile and embrace lifes rich and colourful tapestry".


  1. Cool!
    Bravo, Sall - congratulations!

  2. Oh - that is so fabulous. I really love the background. Fantastic idea to do the stitching and I love how your thought processes work as your piece evolves. I must try to do a bit more journaling but I find it a bit intimidating sitting staring at the blank pages :-(
    Thank you for using one of my images Sall
