News Flash.

Delighted to announce that I have been invited to join a challenge blog as the newest DT member for their B Team. It was quite a long process and I was asked to submit  3 of my non card making projects before being accepted. (The man from Del Monte said Yes!. Do you remember that advert for oranges.) Which Challenge blog I hear you ask?
Well pop back here on Monday September 2nd when my first project goes live!!!!

Now some of you have commented that I have been a bit quiet of late but I have been busy  working away in the background. I decided to have a go at a few new techniques  and practice like mad.

I had bought some Graph'it pens in skin tones to try and nail shading when  colouring and whilst I'm never going to be an Ace at it do believe I'm coming along nicely.

Next I've been Zen tangling or in my case doing some Antanglies (which I shall henceforth  call my efforts). Bought a book to try out some of the patterns and whilst I'm not really into drawing four dots on a page and joining them  up and then  filling in,  the book did say think outside the box so I did!!  Watch this space.

Then there's quilling! I bought a book which was primarily aimed at children.(Well if they can make the shapes so can I was my thinking). Again had lots of fun and watch this space is all I'm saying.

Finally just in case you thought I had run out of Mrs A's yarns to tell you then stop by later on today to read the next 'Docs' mishaps story. It's a bit fishy!!.

Wow Mrs A, well done you, I will pop back at a later date and find out more. DebbieX

BRILLIANT news Mrs A - I thought you'd been awfully quiet and the little puffs of steam coming from your neck of the woods lately were a give away that you were crafting away anyhow. Just make sure you manage to use some snippets - the Playground would be too quiet (and sane) without you!

I'll be waiting and watching!

Hugs, Di xx

Mrs. A., you're quite the busy learning bee, aren't you? That's really wonderful to take on the Zen tangling - can't wait to see it. Great idea with the quilling - starting at the beginning - wanted to give it a go but I'm too lazy; will wait to see how you manage. Though I know you'll come out on top as you always do! :-) Have a fab rest of the week! :-)
