My Cards and Crafts

My art and home

This Blog will be about my art work and how I made the cards and other art along with things about my home.

I enjoy making all sorts of things and learning new techniques.

I have recently learnt how to make a Fat/Chunky page and really enjoyed it.

Along with this I have made background paper using the scrunch method.

I scrunched up paper opened it scrunched again and repeated until I was happy with the results. Then I rubbed Distress ink over the paper in two different colours. The end result is not that bad as you can see.
All my art work is made sat at the dining table in the living room and any messy work is completed in the kitchen.
My home is a one bedroom ground floor flat and we are lucky enough to have a garden. This means I can work in the kitchen or living room and see the garden. Gardening is something I love but not when it is cold.
Having osteo arthritis and a few other things like IBS and dizzy spells means I cannot always do what I want to do but get around it one way or another.
Art and craft is one way of keeping my imagination working and maintaining my sanity, although some would disagree LOL. I have made new friends with my art work and enjoy joining in new challenges and finding new ways of doing things.
My husband loves playing his games on the computer and playing his guitar whilst I create new cards, ATC's or make a new Stuffy. He has problems with his heart and osteo arthritis as well.
So this a little bit about me and what I do.
More will come as I make new things so keep looking in to see what I am up to.
I am not the worlds greatest at keeping a blog but will do my best to keep this one going.
