End of year Challenge at Indigoblu

Hi all,

I hope that you are all well, and that you have had a peaceful Christmas, I know it's been easier for some than other's this year as every year.

I have some new craft 'stash' to play with, and can't wait, but for now I'd like to share the small canvas I did for the Indigoblu Challenge Blog.  It's an end of year Challenge, and so the prize is larger, and well worth entering to win!

I made this canvas by stamping Jane onto Decopatch crackle effect paper, as I was looking for it to work for two purposes, and think the effect of the Vintage Sepia Versafine on the paper looks good.  The found objects I added, and Altered Ego's from Indigoblu were layered up on top of the image, and painted with white gesso.  I then mixed in some mica powder's to a matte medium, to paint over the top to give a sheen.  It was my first attempt at this kind of canvas, and I've had fun, and learn't along the way.  Pop across to the challenge and have a go yourself, and let me know what you think, and what lovely goodies you got for Christmas!

Wishing everyone a bright and shiny New Year.

Hi all,  just to say I've blogged today over at Indigoblu, you can catch up here.
It's a card from the weekend's show, I had great fun with the new stamps. 

Here's a peek:

 I've also put my tree up, and done three craft fairs this weekend, phew!

I am working towards something else this week, all hush hush, but very exciting for me, I hope to be able to share good news with you soon, if things go as planned!

Have a good week, whatever you are up to!

Best wishes,
