We are now eight weeks into lockdown and I have re-discovered my love for Lavinia Stamps.

I have had them for years but not really used them very much, mainly due to fear of them looking rubbish, but I am pretty happy with the outcomes.

I spent a whole day creating backgrounds, using a mix of brushos, spray inks and distress inks on a variety of paper types, some shiny photo card and others on smooth white card.  I also used a Gelli plate for most of the backgrounds.

So here are a few of my favourites.

Thank You NHS

Wow it has been almost a year since I last posted, mainly due to moving house at the end of last year, but also I must admit my mojo was out of juice.

It is slowly coming back and due to all the time off during this Covid-19 pandemic,  now is a good time to dive back in to being creative with so much spare time.

So when I saw the new Winnie Heroes collection from Polkadoodles, I just had to colour one up in support of all the fabulous workers in the NHS, who are putting themselves at risk every day to help save lives.

I have had major and minor surgery several times in the last 5 years and without exception the care I received was fantastic.

So this is for all the Nurses, Doctors and carers out there doing what they do best, looking after us and saving lives.
