Weekly Challenge 3 – One Sheet Wonder

Been a strange few days. My daughter developed a cough, but getting a test was easier said than done, it took us four attempts 😆. The whole family had to self-isolate, but thankfully her test came back negative. To be honest as much as I love my family, I am glad that they can all go back to school, college and training. Three autistic adult family members and a teenage boy at home with 3 PlayStations, an Xbox, a laptop, an iPad and various phones going at once, the Wi-Fi struggles and costs a fortune in electricity, not to mention the noise, which even the sound sensitive ones among them don’t seem to notice. Wrong sort of sound 😆

The challenge this week is a one sheet wonder. I have decided to turn mine into cards.

I liked this set as soon as I saw it. It is fun and is great for colouring. I haven’t used it as much as I would like, but as my family is now in self-isolation until my daughter’s test results come back, I will have time to play.

Butterfly Wishes Joseph’s Coat Technique

This is an old technique, but brand new to me. I saw Bruno Bertucci doing this and I had to try it. You can see his video here . I had great fun, but got very messy 😆

Butterfly Wishes – Annual Catalogue 2020/2021 page 16

Card base – Basic Black Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″
Layer 1 – Melon Mambo Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
Layer 2 – Whisper White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Inside
Layer 1 – Melon Mambo Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
Layer 2 – Whisper White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Whisper White Envelope
Magenta Madness Ribbon 6 1/2″

What is your favourite technique? Do you love a messy Technique or hate it? For me as a mum of five (eldest is 28 and youngest is 13), Grandma of two littles ones, aged 5 and almost 3 and a Rainbow Guider (Youngest members of Girlguiding UK at 5-7 year olds), mess comes with the territory. I have always enjoyed messy crafts and projects, but my husband who is autistic hates mess. It’s a miracle we have been married for 25 years 😆

Until next time, happy crafting

Today’s project from the Pinkies’ Weekend Retreat is this tin and 7-page mini album designed by Pinkies Team Leader Michelle Last. Check out her blog over at https://www.michellelast.co.uk/

I really enjoyed this project, deciding how to decorate it and what papers to use.  I fell in love with the Boho Indigo Product Medley refill kit.   button_see-it-here

Tomorrow will be the final project I will be bringing you from the Pinkies Weekend Retreat.

Until next time, happy crafting
