I have finally 'extracted a digit' and written my first one and set up a new page on my website to house it - you may have spotted it already next to the Blog tab.
The reason for doing this is twofold. As a seasoned crafter I like looking at demonstration items in magazines because even if I am not too keen on the finished product, I always get ideas on techinque, product placement or colour use that I can try in my own work. The second reason is that making such lovely art and craft items is not as difficult as you may think - and I would love for more people to get inspired and have a go (just don't blame me if your crafting stash takes over your home!)
The first guide takes you step-by-step through the stages to create the lovely Vintage Beauty card shown below. Have a look and let me know what you think - or even better, get your paper, scissors and glue out have a go and share the results with me!
I will be demonstrating cards like this at the Make and Take at Emerald Framing and Gallery on Saturday 3 March so if you would like to have a go and use my crafting stash and equipment I would love to see you there! (there is a link on my Blog entry for 14 February where you can get more info re location and timings and the like).
