Until the next time.........


Well the day  has finally come for me to go into hospital for spine surgery and to say I am scared is most definitely an understatement for sure.

So to take my mind off of it I decided to finish off a piece of art to enter into Sunday Stampers.  This is a weekly challenge by the talented Hels Sheridan who I am lucky enough to class as a friend.  The theme is Shine and my shiny bits so to speak are Perfect Pearls and Bubble Gum Pink Dylusions sprayed onto the rose, Crackle Accents and Treasure Gold Emerald.

I wanted to try out the paint scrapped technique that Hels taught me recently on a paper substrate that I brought recently from Paper Artsy. So without further ado here is the result.

Thank you for taking the time to come  and have a little look at tuck towers. So until the next time

Take Care and see you on the other side.

Treasure Gold............(Oh and a little bit of paper blocking)


Sorry for not blogging for a couple of weeks,  but I was away on a fab weekend in Rochdale with the amazing Hels Sheridan learning how to do amazing "stuff" with a product called Treasure Gold and then life just got in the way as it does.  The weekend was full of techniques and lots of great products to play with.

I went to the weekend with the lovely Debbie who thankfully decided to drive us both, think that might have something to do with my telling her a few of my driving antics, especially November and the  M 62 and a works lane, but that is so another story.

I met up with my buddy Lou and was so happy we were able to celebrate her birthday with her on the Sunday doing all things crafty.  The group was jammed packed with talented creative people, just what i needed for sure.

Sorry for all the photos that are about to appear, but I am so proud of my tray that I need to show, show, show.

Thank you for popping by Tuck Towers.  I would love you to leave a comment to let me know know what you think.

Until the next time........
