Altered Matchbox and other Projects

Hi Everyone and welcome to new followers.....................its a fabulous sunny day here  in the West of Scotland and although its still cold the sunshine brightens my day. 

Below are photographs of three projects that I have recently made using the Victorian Millinery Design created by CS can view  Chris's fabulous digital image and other digital designs available by clicking the link to her site HERE 

My first contact with Chris  was last year, when I had just started blogging and was  trying to get to grips with all the technicalities of blogging/uploading  photographs and editing crafty makes. I had recycled a cereal box and entered it in Chris's Recycling challenge blog. My links to  challenge blogs was not as it should have been and with Chris and my lovely mum's help I  managed to overcome my technical difficulties........................though it certainly took me a few weeks !!!

Chris and I kept in touch and she was keen for me to use her designs and eventually I decided to give digital stamping a try and had great fun !!

For some time Chris had a vision for a monthly online Ezine where crafters/artists can showcase their latest projects and  also apply to be a Guest Artist / Contributor.  

Chris's Art With No Boundaries Online Ezine.was launched in December 2012....... and for the very first time I am a Guest Artist in the April Issue.

You can view some of my GA projects in the photographs below:

I do hope you will pop over and view/join the Ezine and maybe leave a comment on each of my projects as well as the other beautiful makes by Chris and Ellenor.

There are lots of interesting projects and designs to be viewed in both the April Issue as well as previous issues.

Have a fabulous crafty weekend and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Congratulations Annie and so well deserved.
    All the projects are so special and I just loved the touches of lace which worked so beautifully with the stamped image.
    Each project is so wonderfully thought out and executed to perfection.
