Scrapbooking…

Two posts in a day…I must be mad…or just the signs of a very productive day! So today, I returned to my Scrapbooking roots and I must admit I really enjoyed myself! It’s practically 9pm here and I’ve been working all day, but it’s still full steam ahead! Here is a little sneak peak of something I have been working on….

Anyone that knows my sketchbooks, knows they are crammed full of masking tape and I couldn’t resist using some again today…only this time digitally! Just look at this cute digital masking tape I created…. so many possibilities….this is love!

Free Range (and no I don’t mean eggs!!!)

My ‘summer’ is here, but its still raining and my kids have a better social life than me…been whisked away on day trips out, going to parties and been brought presents! Today infact, they have gone to the Big Smoke with their Grandparents, which they were very excited about (and mummy a little jealous)! Although, patience is a virtue, as it’s my turn next week to head to London to go to ‘The Free Range’ show in Brick Lane. Showcasing the best new Fashion, Art, Design, Photography,  Motion Arts, interiors & Architecture, it’s going to be an inspiring day out!

A Little Red….

Soooo, looks like I’ve gone a little quiet here again…but that’s good…actually life’s very good. Indeed I’m at my best when I am busy and busy I have been! Creating accessories based on concealment and the unexpected. This has taken me on a fabulous journey of slashing, burning, melting and shoe-making! Here’s some of my not-quite finished shoes….
