Lavinia stamps and pan pastels

I took a fancy to some Lavinia stamps at the Alli-Palli craft show, and also purchased some pan pastels. As this afternoon has been wet and wild, I stayed in and played, the pan pastels were really easy to use and as effective.... ( or more effective,.... as I'm useless at it!) than brayering. The finished results are as below, and they will be made into cards later.

commission for a memory box

I was commissioned by a colleague at work to make a memory box for a baby called charlie.  I struggled initially with what format to use and it took a while to come up with this. I liked the finished box, but I have yet to find out if it was liked by her, as I have had a weeks annual leave since delivering it.

I used acrylic pains and crackle glazed them, and then stamped out the little biy, and paper peiced him.

mini note pads

My consultant is raising funds to run the London Marathon, and so I have made these little note pads to give her, to help raise her funds. The end collection of sponsorship is going to the adolecent cancer unit at the leicester roayal infirmary.
