Flowery Layers

I am really pleased with how this fresh and modern card turned out using a freebie stamp for Craft Stamper magazine. I coloured them and layered them up with alcohol pens.

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

January Review

As we are on the last day of the month thought it was time to share some of my January projects here on my blog.

First up at the very start of the month I made some art journaling dice to help when you mojo fails you and you need a kickstart to your creativity.

I rolled just one of the dice and it landed on bird so here is what I decided to draw.

I have been working in both these journals for well over a year and thought it was high time I decorated the covers. They look much nicer on my shelf and I will definitely be decorating more of my journals as the year progresses.

And finally I share a sewing project I worked on throughout 2017 and put the finishing touches to it in the first week of January. I just love how many mindfulness quilt turned out...all my own design and very cosy. Been much used already!

How are everyone else’s January creative projects shaping up?
