Some fusioneering and another chance to win

Evening my lovelies.

Firstly - another chance to win the amazing colouring DVD by Leann Chivers and Crafters Companion from a member of the design team - Lis

Next - I've had a play with Sheena Douglass' new paint fusion stamps (they are not Sheena's they are mine).  My first attempt was not (to my mind) overly successful, but you decide for yourself

It's not dreadful, but not how I wanted.  My main mistake was to stamp the flower image before looking at the tutorial on Youtube so when I tried to put the leaves in I couldn't comprehend quite how to do it.

So for my next attempt I worked out the composition first

I decided I wanted a little something extra in there, so added a fairy from the Fairyopolis range, and coloured her in with flexmarkers.   The background was too white so I coloured that with the linen flexmarker, but not so much so that it was a solid block of colour.   I then stamped in a sentiment (which is not exactly a sentiment but can't think of anything else to call it).

I might attempt the fuschia whilst I've got my  paints out

Later folks

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
