Hello Maggie Lovers! Today I have a sweet little card using the new Summer Flower Tilda from the Summer Memories 2012 collection. I have been hanging out to find some creative time to relax and colour her up.

Hi Maggie Lovers, I was really sad when I created this card and I didn’t get around to posting it on my Magnolia blog. It’s time I updated this blog with some fresh projects! This project really helped to take my mind off things at the time and was a fun relaxing project. :) I started by practising how I would build the scene on scrap paper to work out what the final size would be and then to make it easier to visualise I cut down the »

Hello everyone! I hope you are well. I have a little ‘play time’ project to share with you today. I have been picking my pencils up and down over the past few months and having a play with them here and there, but I would always give up too easy, find an excuse why they weren’t working for me and run straight back to my comfort zone – markers! hehe BUT!!!  For the last couple of nights I gave myself a little talking to and sat down to colour »

I’ll give you more details later!! wink wink!  I timed myself as to how long she took to colour and am ashamed to say over THREE hours!! »

Hi Everyone, It’s that time again where my group shares our creations on The Official Magnolia Inspriation Challenge Blog! This week we are playing with the Magnolia Animal stamps and also asking you to incorporate Magnolia Designer paper in your creations. I admit I don’t have very many animal stamps sand don’t really think to use the ones I have that often, so it was a good opportunity to pull out what I do have an think up a scene! »

Hi Maggie Lovers! So my new ‘thang’ is trying to get better at drawing grass. I created this one a while ago for a friend and now that she has it, I can share here. :) I only recently got my hands on Tilda with Hawaii Flower and couldn’t wait to colour her up!
