What We Made In January 2016

We got very creative in January.  

We made some New Year Decorations with a secret message inside that we'd written on a piece of paper and then rolled into a bead which we wrapped up with decorative washi tape.  The decorations were made by firstly decorating an A4 piece of card using my favourite Caron D'ache Neo-Color II water soluble wax crayons and then stencilling with Tim Holtz Distress Ink or doodling with a Black Sharpie.  We then drew a shape pattern which we traced around 10 times and then cut out.  Each shape was then folded in half, glued together to form a "round" and then the bead was fixed inside the centre using embroidery thread and a couple of buttons.  

In the next session we made collaged buildings using decorative papers.  These would make lovely greetings cards. I love making these and they feature alot in my art work.  I love to doodle on them and add other elements.
