Hi fellow bloggers,
Firstly I would like to welcome my new followers. Thank you for taking the time to join me and I hope you like what you see.
What a gorgeous day yesterday, Sunday. It was a really warm, 18 degrees! Yippee!!
So sorry I haven't posted for far too long but I do have an excuse! And it's a good one!!
I have a 'Trigger Finger' on my right hand. If you haven't heard of this, it means I have damaged the Tendons in the palm of my right hand. This effects my finger, so I have difficulty holding things, as it is very painful to clench my fingers. If I do clench my fingers and then release them, my effected finger will not straighten on it's own. I have to unroll it with my other hand. Ouch!!
So, as I have a market on Wednesday, first this year, I am trying to make stock for that. It has been a bit slow, which is so annoying. I now, at last, have got an appointment at the Docs on Saturday morning, to have an injection into my finger. I have had this twice before, so must be careful what I do for the first few days after the jab.
This is one of my market makes. It's an MDF heart I bought at Sandown Craft Fair.
I will list at the bottom of post, all the things I used on it.
The rose was the new Sizzix die I had, which I scaled down to 'card' size. Very fiddly but I had done it before finger prob.
I really enjoyed making this, as I had most of the elements already in my stash.
The leaves are made with Martha Stewart Paper Clay, my new addiction! I just love it. It is so quick to use and you get perfect results every time. I did make a couple of roses free hand and have used them already on projects.
The white flowers are just strips of copier paper which I feather cut and rolled.
I will hopefully find a couple of challenges to enter this into later!
Hope you like it as much I did making it. It does make a change, as normally I always find fault with what I make.
Here is the list of products used:
Emulsion paints, 2 colours
Paper Artsy Grunge Paste
Marianne Creatables - Clock Face Die & Swirl
Martha Stewart Paper Clay
Treasure Brass - Gilding Wax
Book pages from stash.
