Rusty book cover

This month’s colour board at Words&Paintery was so tricky… I made 5 different projects and … every single one of them ended up in a bin! Yup, that’s right. I really struggled. But then I thought that maybe I should alter a book cover… and it was so much fun! Here is my tutorial: And here…

Perfectly Imperfect | Words&Paintery

Grey & Pink | Niekartkowo

For most of us, Valentine’s Day brings to mind loads of red colour and love sentiments. For the February challenge at Niekartkowo, we have decided to steer clear of the traditional go towards the understated and maybe a bit grungy… grey and pink. I have used 7Dots papers, mists from Tattered Angels and Finnabair stencils.…
