Welcome


Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.


I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!


Thank you for visiting my blog.

Life's a Beach

Another Monday and the start of a new Challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  The theme is "Life's and Beach" or "What I did on my Holiday's".

It is that time of the year when many people in the UK are packing their cases and heading for the beach for the annual two weeks of sun and sand.  Obviously, not everyone enjoys a beach holiday, some people enjoy walking, or rock climbing.  So people even spend their two weeks decorating their home.  Whatever you do, we should like to see your interpretation in the form of a project.


One of my Design Team Mates recently introduced me to Tiddly Inks and as soon as I saw this fabulous image of Wryn Floating Along I knew I wanted it for this challenge.


I coloured the image with Promarkers and I added just a hint of clear Wink of Stella to the glass, so it twinkles.  The luggage set was a freebie from Tiddly Inks.  The other embellishments all came from my stash and the backing paper came from a DoveCraft  pack.

The rest of the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team have been busy making some fabulous project, so why not pop by and see for yourself.

    1. Thank you Pamellia. Another delightful image to colour, this time with Promarkers. I was a little worried that I had got carried away with the embellishments, but I could not decide between them, so I went for them all in the end.

      Have good week.

    1. Thank you for noticing, I was rather pleased with how it went ;)

      So hot here today, it would have been great to have a pool to float around in. Instead I was cleaning bedrooms and ironing. Lol!
