About the Artist

My Photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 9 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

September Challenge

This is my DT Project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit







I was very kindly gifted these frames from a very good friend, who saw them and thought 'I know someone who could do something with these'.


I started by taping up over the glass to protect it whilst I painted and added modeling paste.  I used a mixture of blue and green eco-friendly paints.  To add some texture I used the punched out sheets you are left with from sequins with some modeling paste and liked the bubble texture that this achieved. Using some homemade and Cosmic Shimmer sprays I added and blotted off until I got the desired colour and shimmer I was after.



I rumbled around in my stash and decided to add some sea shells, burlap twine and some broken pearl necklace pieces to add to the under the sea effect.  To finish I took some garden twine and created 2 reef knots and added 1 to the top of each frame.

My dear friend now has these frames back and they fit in perfectly with her nautical house and lifestyle.



Please come over and join in with our September Challenge for your chance to win this MDF Letter Rack measuring 7.5"/19cm wide x 5.5"/14cm high, a fantastic piece to alter.

August Challenge

And without further ado here is my DT Project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit





 I altered this little Michael's box (yet another purchase from my trip to the States).  I have just gotten my hands on my very first Tim Holtz paper stack, I know isn't that just criminal, imagine being such a Tim Holtz fan and not owning a paper stack.  Well anyway I have one now and I couldn't wait to get into it and just thought that it would be perfect to use with this box.  I covered it in Black Gesso, added papers all over from the stack and cut up the little images and used them as the little photos for the 'Family Memories'.  I used some of the TH Chit Chat words, a TH clock and cog on the lid along with a TH clip to hold some of the little images on the outside of the lid.  To finished I added some more lovely metal embelishements which Moira so kindly gifted me in our resent swap and rubbed over all the black gesso edges with some Inca Gold.


Please come over and join in with our August Challenge for your chance to win this fantastic selection of Fernli Designs goodies.  It is my turn to choose this months winner and I am so so looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.




I so hope you like my creation for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.

Here is my DT project ATC Printer Trays






I used 2 Printer Tray - ATC Size - 3.5 x 2.5 inches - Laser Cut MDF Wood from WhichCraft .  
I hinged them together using a mini hinge and claps from my stash held on using E6000 and finished off with some gold flatback pearls.  I used one of my favourite Prima collections - Lyric - to cover the outside and also within each of the compartments in the inside.  I then selected some small lace trims from my stash and started to build up the inside.  Rummaging through my stash I found lots of little trinkets and goodies to add in along with tiny WOC flowers.  As I made this I though of a friend that I would like to gift this to and added the Tim Holtz words
'Treasure, Friendship Forever'

Hope she likes it :-)
