Welcome to Crafty Corner


I was thrilled to be invited to appear as top talent At Our Creative Corner a fantastic challenge site with the most amazing design team. For my project I made a sign for my crafting space, which was christened 'Crafty Corner' by my Hubby.



I painted a piece of grunge paper and cut into pieces. I stamped a selection of stamps and used a combination of Inktense pencils and distress inks to colour them. I stitched them all together and using matte medium glued them onto a piece of plywood.

Below is a few pictures of my bijoux crafting area, usually extremely chaotic and messy, but tidied up for the photo shoot. LOL!





Have a fantastic week. We're off to Harrogate for a few days, mmm I wonder if there are any nice crafty/ sewing shops! I'm sure I'll find some.

Happy Crafting xx

What a great sign you have made Paula, live the mix of patch worked stamps and colours. You certainly have a very tidy working space.
Enjoy your few days away.

WOW! What a beautiful patchwork hanging Paula. That will look amazing on your wall. Didn't know you could machine stitch grungepaper so that's on the 'to do' list today. Have a great time in Harrogate and shop 'til you drop. Hugs, Jenny x

Absolutely wonderful Paula - the stitching together is fantastic. I can't believe you only got your sewing maching last year - your stitching is always superb. Love the 'door knocker' embellie and beautiful colours. Happy time in Harrogate. Nicola x

Wow, it's almost intimidating the way your crafty corner is tidied up, Paula ;)

(at least intimidating to a messy chaotic crafter like me *lol).

Your piece for our creative corner's spotlight is absolutely amazing! I LOVE the colours and the stitching a lot!

Thank you once again for being our spotlight this month!

Stunning project!
Your craftroom looks like mine, in that I also share my room with the refrigerator. Apart from the refrigerator, it also has the washing machine, and the dryer. The sound of the washing machine is like music... LOL

Terry said...
