Faux Metal Mixed Media Sailboat - Maria Sabina

Hello everyone,

If you like the old, vintage, masculine look , then you will love today's creation. I made a sailboat without having a template or a proper idea. I must say I like it and I could do better than this, but for now this will do just great. If you follow me on Instagram, then you get to see behind the scenes.

The technique is pretty much the same as the faux metal box I made a few days...

Edna Taylor - Have a Blooming Marvellous Day

Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

Thank you for joining me today. Whilst having a bad back is never desirable and it means I'm not able to cut my dies for a while, it has given me the opportunity to have a wee play with colouring and stamping.

I've a new Gemini on order so I hope that will help me with the die cutting and take some of the strain off my back until I'm properly up and about...
