Handpainted cards.

I am really enjoying painting and decided to have a bash at hand painting cards.

Here are a few I have done so far.

They make cards a little bit different and unique.

Some are water colours and some are acrylic paints.

Craft club- ATC

As many of you know I go to a fortnightly craft club and three of us lead it.

This past Monday was my turn and I introduced the ladies to the world of ATC making and matchbox decorating with little pieces of art inside.
Well they loved it and many have asked to do it again. I was unsure if they would find it too fiddly.
Below are three I managed to make during the class. We never got around to making the matchboxes, as the ladies just kept on creating ATC's.

Below are some matchboxes I decorated and the tiny pieces of are inside. You cram as many as you can inside and send them to your swap partner or just stash away somwhere safe so you can have a peek now and again.

Latest themed ATC's

I regulary do ATC swapS in the UK. I am a member of several groups online.
We tend to get monthly themes. Here are some I have just completed.

This theme is Geisha

Below this theme is Fish

I just love doing this 2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch ATC's. They are a little bit of fun and easy to store as a collection.

Hope you like them do say hi as you have popped by. :)

Glass windchime

As most of you know I got a fortnightly craft club . Its run on a tight budget and we do all crafts for under a £1-00. Its normaly above this but the leaders tend to use their own craft stuff to keep costs down.

We did glass painting this Monday I am sharing my bumble bee windchime .
Its handpainted and was so simple and so much fun to do. The glass paint was the very expensive part, but if used sparingly it goes a long way.
