As always I encourage you to visit the blogs of these fabulous crafters and let them know what you think-it would be nice to find some new crafty friends through this challenge!

Now its time for My All Crafts Challenge 3-as usual there is an Anything Goes theme but with a difference-my only rule is NO CARDS OR SCRAPBOOKING-I love to see all the gorgeous creations I know you make which could be anything-gifts, home decor, altering projects, knitting-the list is almost endless! The idea is for you to showcase your fabulous projects and be inspired by the other creations which enter-I always encourage you to visit each other and make new talented crafty friends! :-)
I feature my favourite projects throughout the duration of the challenge and then at the end of the challenge choose a winner using and top three of my choice. This time I have a little crafty parcel for the winner-all I ask is you spread the word of this challenge by adding this little badge to your sidebar with a link to my blog-if you need any help doing this please email-my address is in the sidebar too :-)

For this challenge I have made an upcycled Cereal packet clock. I used a layers of Cereal packets cut with a grand nestie as my base, then decorated a face made of Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers stamped and embossed with a butterfly theme with gold embossing powder. I added a clock movement I found cheaply on ebay and self adhesive numbers. 
For the back of the clock I used modge podge on a cut down paper cup with extra strips of paper as paper mache to strengthen its hold. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I cant wait to see your entries and remember this is a non card/scrapbooking challenge-its a chance for you to shine with your other fabulous creations!

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
