Good Morning Friends!
I hope the weather where you are was as good as it was here yesterday..I actually felt guilty to be spending most of my day off inside crafting - but there is always something to do! I did manage to get outside a few times for a cuppa with the hens, who had a lovely day!
Thank you for your comments on my Zentangled Cockerel; I really had never attempted this type of doodle-art before and I found I didn't really have to concentrate. I looked in my book for some examples of patterns and practiced on a few flowers I had sketched and then I just doodled on the image I'd traced from the stencil. Quite relaxing!
Today's card is a Diamond Wedding card I made recently as a commission. I've actually made the decision to take a 'sabbatical' from commissions until after our holiday. I still have quite a lot to make, plus preparing for workshops, Design Team projects, an Autumn craft fair and of course, it's that time of year when we have to start thinking about..Christmas! (I know some of you have already). I'd also like some time to make some altered art and mixed media projects that are sitting in a box in my craft room!The commission cards take a lot of time and I really felt I needed some time away from them.
I used Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles, leaving the smallest one in the die whilst using a mask to emboss a floral pattern on the top, I did the same with the classic heart die. I finished off with some little Bittly Blossoms, ribbon and pins from stash.
A short post today and sorry the photo isn't great, I left it until the last minute before I had to pack it up for delivery and was battling with light and shadows.
Hope you all have a very enjoyable Saturday!
Love and Hugs,
