                                        Hearts hanger made at Sheena Douglass's workshop

Thought I had better start posting some things I have made. The heart hanger was made at a Sheen workshop I went to in April. It is very easy to make and something to try when starting to use paint fusion. I mistakenly thought that paint fusion would be dead simple as I have been using paint for years, I was so wrong. There is a definite technique which I have yet to master.

The hearts are printed from Sheena's new CD, which has some very good backing paper, well worth getting the CD for them alone. You can get six graduated hears from one sheet and then you need a suitable backing paper. So it would take 3 sheets to make 2 hangings. If you want to add the paint fusion bit you simple paint over some of the petals. The larger daisies are painted, cut out and added.

I think that it would make a lovely birthday, thinking of you, or get well soon card.

Thought that I would add a picture of the main working area in my craft room. Last week it was so hot I could hardly work in there. With windows on two sides it is a very bright airy working space. Only got it started last summer. It may not look it but this is the tidy version. When working I can look out onto my garden and watch the birds.

Have not made anything today but have managed to add my Kraftyhands logo and link.

Getting Started

Well I have got this far with this adventure. In many ways I have not got a clue what I am doing and look at other crafters pages and just think "how clever are they".
I hope as time goes on I will improve.
I am going to place on my page cards and projects I have made and the materials.
