25 August 2014

My very first entry in my new blog!  I am very new to this and not quite sure what I am doing so please be patient all of you who have been encouraging me to enter the bloggesphere.  You know who you are.

Today is August Bank Holiday Monday and it has been the wettest I can remember.  Thought I might spend the day working on a piece of mixed media wall art to be revealed later.  It is coming along nicely and it occurred to me that it would be good to show it so, the blog is born.

I am a fan of Helen Chilton and was inspired by her article in the September issue of Craft Stamper using Lynne Perella stamps and Fresco paints by PaperArtsy.  This was done using the a tissue paper technique and I made, or rather decorated, a box and then instead of making cards as suggested in the article, I incorporated the artwork into a journal.  Here are the photos:
