This week's Scrapwest Challenge was 'Inspired By....' My piece was inpsired by Beryl Taylor's Book - Mixed Media Exploratons. I love this book and flick through it regularly for inspiration.

I bought a new book last week 'Contemporary Bead and Wire Jewellery'. There are some lovely ideas in it, instructions are not too clear but you can get enough from the pictures. This necklace was similar in style to one in the book. I think I need to buy some more beads though after seeing some of the lovely designs in the book.
I went to a class yesterday at The Card Crew in Belfast. Marion Coupe from Magpie Crafts in Coleraine took the class and it was a great day. I met some lovely girls - all very talented - and I enjoyed my day. This was my attempt at the mixed media canvas. We also had time to make a lovely little book with some more metal foiling.

My daughter spent quite some time last night doing 'something'. After a loud crash and several questions this is what she produced. I'm delighted with her. She is 12 and does not like card making but tried to making something she thought I would like. Well, I love it. THere is an alcohol inked background, a domino with alcohol inks, edged in gold and stamped, the ribbon is fed through a slit in the side of the card and they are all my favourite colours which dont show up too well in the photo. I think she is brilliant.

This is my Scrapwest challenge for last week. We were given a sketch and also a swap from another team member and I received some lovely papers from Annamarie at the Scrapstore. Thanks Annamarie. I dont normally use blue colours but I do like these.
