New Year, New Beginnings

Well ahoy there and welcome to 2018 on my wee bloglet.
Something a bit different from me today and a step away from anything I've ever done before.

Just before Christmas I thought I'd have a go at some different mediums and make personalised gifts for the family.

This is the first in a series of wooden initials that I altered with a selection of pastes, gels, paints, stencils and 3d elements.

I have fallen in love with these mediums and have become a bit of a magpie, hunting n' hoarding bits of string, scraps of cardboard and random bits of recycling.

I think this will be my crafty passion for the year ahead and I hope to incorporate my other love, alcohol inks, into my creations later on in the year when I can open windows and get better ventilation. 

So for now, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year and Happy Crafting!
