Ooh, it has been quiet not having my children around for a few days. The bonus is not only do I get to watch my own TV programmes, but I also get a lie-in! Bliss! I haven't been doing lots of crafting which I thought I'd be doing, I've been very uncharacteristically domesticated. I've been throwing myself into doing a late Spring Clean. I think its having the place to yourself makes you see things that you've been avoiding need doing more.
For my craft tonight I had a go at making some scroll tiles using my Cuttlebug embossing machine.
I used some wrapping paper for this (I would have used foil but I couldn't find it!)
I did an embossing (raised) one and a debossed (sunken) version but I prefer the embossed one.
The tile, which has my favourite design on it, scrolls, was from Ten Second Studio (I got it from a craft show) and was designed for embossing with hand tools. Next time I do this, I will do it on foil and add colour to it with some alcohol inks.
On Creative Flourishes you will find examples of my photography, mixed media artwork, cardmaking and general art & craft making. Hopefully I will inspire others (as others inspire me) to get creating too! I also include snippets of my family life with my husband and my two boys, aged 17 and 14.
