Embroidery Hoop Photo Wall Hanging

This is the week 4 handout project in Claudine's @ home course. I really enjoyed making this project. it was relatively quick and very easy to do. I love the technique of transfering pattern paper design onto the back of sticky back canvas and ending up with a patterned fabric! The possiblities are endless. My mum had recently sent me a cd of family photos and on it were pictures of my great grandparents so this project just seemed made for them. My new favourite obsession are Prima Marketing products, especially the flowers and pearls, so I incorproated them into the design as well to added dimension and an aged, antique feel. Hope you like as much as I do.

Am beginning to catch up with the class and have completed almost all the pages for weeks four and five. But just when all looks good I have gone and run out of, wait for it.............sticky back canvas! Just my luck and poor planning! Well here are my efforts for this week. My favourite technique this week was the transfer onto the back of sticky back canvas. I will definetly being getting extra supplies of that at the harrogate show on the weekend!

I love you Aunty Jude

At the end of this month a memorial service will be held for my Aunty Jude, who died a week before Christmas last year, in Perth Australia. I currently live in Edinburgh with my husband and family and will not be able to make it back for the service. I will miss being able to see the family and take part in the service so as a contribution on my part I offered to make some bookmarks that my Mum wanted to give to the guests who came.
I hope that thay are good enough and that everyone likes them, and as a result are able to take a part of Jude home with them. I certainly will never forget her.

The Chandelier Canvas
I absolutely loved making this piece and can see myself making many more pieces like this or using these techniques.It was so simple to make and yet it is so striking!
Hope you guys love it as much as I do.

It's Birthday Time!

Last weekend it was my husbands birthday. He turned 43, but ssshh don't let him know I told you! LOL! I didn't have any idea what to get can be so difficult to buy fo and then I decided to spoil him with some of his favourite food from an italian deli in town that we would never normally shop at, as it is too pricey. Well if you can't get spoilt on your birthday, when can you?
This is the card I made him. He is madly into his poker and I thought the this would be an ideal card. It is my first attempt at an easel card and I am really chuffed with it , I will definetly do this type of card again.
Hope he liked it.
