My most viewed blog posts of 2015 were:

1st


2nd

 

3rd



It is really interesting to see the amount of times your posts are viewed and that they by no means match the comments you are left on blog posts. Thanks to all those who both viewed my pages and left comments in 2015.

But my personal favourite project of 2015 was:


And in 2015 I was so pleased to be asked to start writing and creating for Craft Stamper Magazine.


I wonder what creative firsts 2016 will bring?

Some Neon Pink




hair to celebrate the start of my Christmas break! The calendar girl art project was something I set myself as a challenge in January, got a little behind but only 2 pages to catch up so should get it done before we wave goodbye to 2015.

Picked Raspberry...



inks blended on the image, pattern and white card stock. My girl was coloured with Promarkers and then some extra shading using coloured pencils. The rounded rectangles were cut using Brother Scan n Cut.

I am going to enter her into the I love Promarkers challenge.

Graphite



I simply used a Faber Castell graphite crayon to shade in this image and background. 
Spread the graphite using a paper stump.


Buy my ECL03 stamps over at PaperArtsy or other authorized stockists.

Some time...



To make a card this weekend using one of my stamps. I die cut all the pieces using my Brother Scan n Cut, add distress ink (using new egg shapes ink blenders) and stamping to some patterned card stock. My girl was coloured in Promarkers and coloured pens.




I am entering this card into Allsorts  'at least 3 die cuts' challenge.

Cozy Afternoon Quilt


Finally finished this applique quilt using designs by Jacquelynne Steves. 
Thinking I might gift this quilt to someone at Christmas.


As I have promised myself not to buy anymore fabric until the New Year so used up all my larger scraps left over from the blocks to back my quilt.


I am going to share this over at Fabric Friday Frenzy

In my little journal

I have managed to grab a couple of hours to do some drawing. I worked in pen and then colouring pencils. The background stamp by Emma Godfrey over at PaperArtsy and used Caran d'ache Fibralo pens to colour/then stamp the image. Of course I added some washi tape for her little top.


Sharing over at Show Your Face and Paint Party Friday.

Paint Party Friday


This week my art work is in a circle journal, which always adds a little more pressure to the creative process, but I am very pleased with the girl that appeared on the page and fingers crossed the journal owner will like it too! The journal page has a little flap so managed to carry the girls hair over onto it too. Stamps by Sara Naumann and Emma Godfrey over at PaperArtsy.
