Lucy ~ I decided to do an art journal page. The techniques I used are inspired by three fab people! Kate CraneDyan Reaveley and Rachel. Check out Rachel's fab videos on You tube. Racho113.
I used the Dylusions ink sprays, stencils and water spray. Acrylic paint. The image is a stampotique stamp! 

Jax ~  I made this gift bag for mum. Kraft bag, with a Kanban topper, a hand tied bow and a few feathers!!

Carole I decided on a 'make' as I've been making some rustic Christmas decor this year! This was made using a pattern I got years ago from a US website and had never got round to making! The ice skates are made from a fleece-like fabric and I 'messed' them up a little with Tea Dye distress ink. I sewed the laces in and also made the blades from rusty wire and sewed them to the boots. To finish off I added some grapevine twiggy bits in the boots and displayed them with a muslin bag in the centre The bag is decorated with a poinsettia made using a spellbinders die and felt.
