Strawberry fields

Here's another New York scene, the flowers where made by hand by just cutting out four of the same shape and alternating them, bending the petals up to give it a more raised look. again also inking the edges. The lace at the bottom was bought from my local haberdashery store from the off cuts. which works out a lot cheaper than the craft places. The flourish is a prima black say it with pearls cut in half, and the butterflies and floral edge are created from a martha stewart punch.

Angel fountain

New York, New York! Of course i have far too many pictures of my new york trip so choosing there best ones took nearly as long as scrapping them! For this one i used DCWV linen closet paper and co ordinating papers. with some prima flowers and leaves. also cut some of the leaves out with a wood ware  large leaf punch and then sprayed them with some cosmic shimmer mist. the butterfly is from a marianne die, also sprayed green with some mist and inked round the edges.Its not very often i leave an edge un inked or chalked, i think it gives the page more depth.

30th Birthday card

I used 'GCD parisian' for all the paper products here then some heidi swap circle gems. This paper can't help but make your project look good. its got a classic feeling. And has i sometimes find it hard to make masculine cards or layouts,this was an ideal choice.

Birthday Book

This is a piece of altered art. it was made for my friends daughters 7th birthday, i thought it would be more interesting than a normal run of the mill birthday card. It was made from a paper mania bare chipboard album covered with prima fairy flora paper.

Because my friends daughter was having a 'alice in wonderland' phase i decide to use some of those ideas with the 'eat me' , 'wear me' things. I put something on every other page that she could use in some way. from sweeties to hair slides! the sweets where soon gone, as you can see from the pic. haha but the rest of the items are still in tact.
Hi everyone, i am Jane, this is the new home for all my creative out put, hopefully you will be inspired by my creativity and produce a world of sparkle yourself!!!
As i'm fairly new to blogging please feel free to give me some pointers, all comments and criticisms greatly received :0)

A bit about my self. At the moment I'm living in wales (the country side in very inspiring) I've been making master pieces of some sort of craft for as long as i can remember. but over the last 10 years i have mostly stuck to the paper crafts mainly scrapbooking! saying that a lot of 'scrappers' don't make cards and steer clear of the altered art. i have to admit once into the scrapping i was definately a NONE card maker but now i have found my way and have made quite a few cards and altered art.

I get a lot of my supplies from ebay and various other web based outlets as good quality craft outlets are few and far between. (and my stash is rather large so i need a good variety). i am also very jealous of the fab products available in the states!!!!
