A Long Time Gone ...

Hello there,

It's been ages since my last post, but I have been having a nightmare of a time with Blogger. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but every time I go to open my blog it redirects it to an advertising page - it's driving me mad!! I have googled how to stop this and ran what seems like millions of antivirus/malware programmes to try and detect the problem - but it's still doing it!!! Aaaaaargh!!

Anyhow, I have managed to get in here today and it is letting me post (for now). So a lot has happened since I last posted, but I won't bore you with all the details. 

We have had a little change round at the shop and some of the staff are now producing the samples to showcase the new product launches at Crafter's Companion, so I thought I would show you one of my samples for the new Mockingbird Lane Perfect Partners collection by Sheena Douglass.

I have absolutely loved playing with these gorgeous little houses - here's the church from the collection ...

The background is made with distress inks, then over stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white detail powder using the little snowflakes from the collection.

The dies and stamps are so easy to use and I have layered up some of the elements to give a 3D effect. The image is coloured with alcohol markers and I also added a little glitter to the snow areas for some sparkle.

My sample is now proudly residing on the display at the shop for our customers to use for a little inspiration.

I will try not to leave it so long before I post again this time, providing I can get back on Blogger. I would love to hear from you if you have had similar problems, especially if you have managed to fix them!!

Hugz, Jan xx
