Paper blocking is the way forward!


I hope you have all had a great couple of days and that Santa brought all you were hoping for? I have had a fab relaxing few days even taking time to walk on the local beach and Santa was a very good man to me this year, might have something to do with the list I made out for his little helper.  After last year I was so determined to not end up with another Take That DVD!

Well here is my final Christmas project for 2012.I didn't get chance to post before the big day............  I actually finished it just in time to be included in the festive decorations of Tuck Towers. I have really enjoyed making decorations this year . This particular project was made using paper blocking.  I love paper blocking  (thank you Hels) it is such a rewarding quick and easy technique and also a great way to use up papers that you have had  around for a while that you  just had to keep!  It wasn't until today that I noticed I had used the word Joy twice on the project............What is that that Tim always says "embrace your imperfections" guess I will change that for next years outing of the canvas but for 2012 it can stay put.

A wee  photo for you.

Thank you for taking the time to come and visit.  I would love you to leave a comment (at the top of the post).

Until the next time, take care
