When you consider I have been blogging since 22nd October 2006 getting to my 300th posting is not really a great achievement! I have had over 25,000 visitors though - so thanks for visiting !! Re -reading some of my posts is really depressing - boy have the last couple of years been a roller coaster of events.Anyway we must look forward not back.
I have just put together a simple birthday card for a special friend. This is made with dark blue velvet (the stretchy kind) with a layer of gold painted bondaweb with a couple of simple rows of machining and topped off with three tiny pieces of embossed 'shrink' plastic shapes. I hope she likes it. Whilst in this minor creative mood and to 'Celebrate' my 300th I have made two 'bookmarks' which I will now offer in a very small giveaway.... this is how they started.. scrap pieces of my rust and indigo fabrics with builders scrim and pieces of tea dyed lace. Then I threw loads of stuff on them - mascara (great way of using up old stuck mascara to highlight), markel oil sticks, various types of paint and rub-ons. Finally finishing off with some beads!
Sorry the pics are so dark - the pieces are really a little lighter. One measures 2" x 8.25", the other 2 x 6.5". If you would like to have one of these please just do the usual and leave a comment by Wednesday 6th August. I will pick 2 names from the list - the first will receive the longer 'bookmark' and the second name - obviously the shorter. (should anyone respond that is - if not - I am happy to keep and use myself!!)
