Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.
My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

What a day I have had!
Well you get the idea, I am learning everything and it is very slow. So I ask for your patience and help, if you think I can be helped......oh bless me! :(
Well at last I 'think' I have a card for you, so here goes
My Recipe:- Base Deepest brown 280gsm card, Papermania Kraft card, Spellbinders Labels 11 (S4-246) and Foliage (S4-328), 'Time & Travel' 6x6 paper pad (sorry forgotten manufacturer), LOTV Lazy Afternoon stamp, Papermania Greeting Stamp, Distress ink in Walnut stain, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint & Bundled sage. Mottled card and ribbon from my stash.
This card was created while having a 'teaching' session with a young friend Ellie, the daughter of my friend/neighbour (yea, I know what you're thinking, me teaching, I can't even control my camera! Well I am quite good at some things, they just all tend to be either crafting, housekeeping or DIY related).
Anyway, we were practicing basic matting and layering, stamping and colouring with distress inks and the theme was Vintage and/or Memories.
This is my version of the card but unfortunately, Ellie gave hers to her grandad for his birthday and I was unable to get a photo to show you.
I am sorry, again, about my photography and editing skills (ok,ok so I have none, we have established that...LOL!) but I hope you get the idea and like something about it.
Joking aside, this is the weakest side of my crafting; I am not very good at colouring. I am, however, trying to follow the tips and tutorials that several of you very talented bloggers are providing and practicing when I have an hour to myself.
Well that's it for today, I have taken so long to do this that I daren't waste anymore time chatting on or it will be posted tomorrow instead. So I hope today has found you well, see you soon.
Hugs and biggest thanks to you all for not only your continued support but also for your helpful tips.
