It is with great excitement that I can now officially share my wonderful news! I have been chosen to be part of the Design Team for Artfull Crafts for 2016. What an honour! I am very excited to be part of the team this year - and cannot wait to get stuck into creating projects to share. I will be updating my blog, as well as the blog over at Artfull Crafts, plus there is a pin board for each of the Designer's over on Pinterest with all the projects - there is some awesome talent on this 2016 team, and you can read all about the other members here.

Looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled year!

Connoisseur of Cars!

We went up to Nelson as part of our family holiday in 2011 - and this a photo of my son (18 at the time) at the car museum. He loves classic cars - and I am astounded at the amount of knowledge that has on these - especially the cars from the 70's! And hence the title.......

I used a Prima range of papers which I have distressed and layered. The clocks are from Kaisercraft and the chippie is a Dusty Attic - which I inked in black and adhered metal cogs. I dabbed a bit of watered down black gesso around the layered papers and embellies to make it "pop" out. The ink splats are with a gold Bo Bunny ink. The buttons are also Prima, as well as the spark plug.
