New Skills


I've been fascinated by the parchment craft demo's on create and craft, and always wanting do have a go at something new, I bought myself some bits and a book and .....

Now I know that it is FULL of mistakes, but even so it was really good fun to do - even sewing on all those little beads - trouble is there is NO WAY I could part with it :)

I've been quite inspired  - I fancy having a go at doing some of the lacy boarders with a stamped image in the middle, if I can find a (simple!) pattern

Anyway - I thought I'd share my first attempt with you xx

wow well done Melissa I love the way you alway have very much your own style on things rather than the usual run of the mill love the colour and the pattern very nice!

Hi Melissa, Your first attempt is lovely, you need a lot of patience don't you to parchment craft. My hubby bought me a lovely book for christmas a couple of years ago, but I don't think I have the patience for it. There was a big area at the NEC in March promoting parchment craft, absolutely stunning designs.
Hope to see your next design soon. Dee xx
