Groovi Robins

Another Christmas card, this time using a variety of Groovi plates to make up the design which has a minimal amount of white work and has been coloured on the back using Polychromos pencils.  There is more Groovi temptation on Hochanda today but I'm sitting on my hands to avoid the dreaded 'Buy' button!!

Dragonfly Canvas

Five crafty friends met up yesterday with Janie for a mixed media workshop which was so enjoyable and we had a wonderful selection of inks, paints, stamps and so on all to hand from which to choose.  We all started off from scratch going through the basics of working on a canvas to build up a design before developing our own pieces.  It was quite a full-on day but we mostly managed to more or less finish - in my case it just needed a few additions this morning such as the scattering of daisies which all needed cutting out and I also added a few finishing touches and some gilding.  Most of the stamps used on my piece were drawn by Janie.  I already have ideas buzzing around in my head for another piece in probably a different colour scheme.
