For those of you who wondered what happened I'll give you a brief explanation..... In December 2012 I undertook a project to completely renovate my house. It was supposed to be a 4 - 6 month project and I'd already arranged to take time out from various DT's and other commitments for a 3 month period to accommodate the build. Unfortunately, things went really, really wrong and the build has now entered the 13 month stage and is unlikely to be completed for another six months. However, the good news is the builder has admitted liability and we can finally move forward and reclaim our home. So whilst I might not be about as regularly as I was, I will be creating and posting as often as things allow :)
Anyway, enough of my waffling, I've got something to show you today that I hope you'll like! It's a sample from the brand new Dollie Daydream Goes East Collection from Polka Doodles. OMG I love this collection and have had loads of fun playing with it. My only problem is finding my stash - much of it is still in storage or very difficult to access, so supplies are currently limited!It's taking me longer to find each item than it is to create a project :(
I made a simple spring card for the base which I topped with a basic paper fan. The image has been paper pieced and coloured with Graph 'It markers. If you haven't tried these yet, then I can highly recommend them! This was my first play with them and I was really impressed with the smooth flow and vibrancy of the inks. In addition the pens are a fab shape to hold.
The card was finished with a simple tag and some paper punched flowers and butterflies and piece of gold card candy that I found in the bottom of a bag of scraps!
Thanks for stopping by today, hopefully I'll be back with another creation real soon (I have a work in progress as we speak).
