Sketch Saturday #247 with Wing's & Willow's.

Good Morning, this week at Sketch Saturday we are joined by Rebecca from 

"Hello! My name is Rebecca Parker. You may have visited my shop, Wings& Willows before, but in case you haven't, here are some things you might not know about me:

- I have never taken any formal art lessons. (Unless you consider doodling in the margins of my college notes "lessons") I actually went to school to be an elementary school teacher, which I also loved doing! Right now, I am a stay at home mommy to three lovely little girls.

-I have been creating digis for about one year now (and LOVE doing it! ) It has been such a great opportunity to meet some fabulous crafters. You girls really know how to make a stamp look good!

- My favorite thing to draw is animals (of course) Our little home includes lots of them: A cow, a golden retriever, chickens, goats and some spoiled kitties. You can always find some inspiration i the backyard.

-In addition to making digital stamps, I also paint Fingerprint Trees. If you haven't heard of them before, think of them as a unique alternative to a guest book at a wedding or event. I have a blast painting them (and making them is my mental wellness at the end of a busy day!)

You can find the links to my shops and blog below. I am always so honoured to have new guests stop by (and comment) It truly makes my day!

This weeks prize is a fabulous $10.00 too spend in the
 Wings & Willows store!

Bombshell Catch Up!

I'm so behind in my DT so have made a consious effort to create and to fill my requirements!

It's Peek-a-Boo Time!

Good Morning and my apologies for not sharing for such a long time!!

So Yesterday I made this clock to put up in my craft room.

First I printed the  Peek-a Boo Geisha  image onto a A4 sheet of Stamping card and coloured with Copic pens.After cutting her out I then mounted the image on to the first layer of Kraft card. Once cut out I repeated this onto the second sheet of card. (one sheet isn't quite study enough) After the last cutting out I coloured the bare edges black to tidy up the edges. 
after this I added gems at each of the segment lines and to the centre of each flower and glitter glue to the branches and hair pins. Once dry I punched the hole for the clock movement using a crop-a-dile Big Bite and fit using the instructions and .........Voila!!!
 There you have a cool and unique clock!
