About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Recycled boxes.

Good evening fellow bloggers,
I've been a busy little bee in my craft room on a couple of afternoons this week. I managed to transform a cardboard box into this little beauty....

I painted the cardboard box, using yet again Rangers black gesso. I love this stuff. Added more of my favourites -g45 typography papers and a bit of Tim Holtz ideology. Quite happy with this and I just might pop it on my desk at work. 
I return back to work on Tuesday so still got a few days to make some more mess. Hope you all have a wonderful , happy and relaxed weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
Take care Elaine xxx
P.s Thanks to Wendy for giving me the boxes xx
