  1. Hi Kath
    2 beautiful creations.

  2. These are beautiful, particularly the top one xxx

  3. Love the rose - but they are both great!

  4. Hello Kath

    I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

    I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press

    Im'e a gilder and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

    Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

    It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, there are now modern gold sizes that are simple to use, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well., like the crackle glaze and antique glaze.

    If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders recipe which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

    Good luck to us all.


  5. CAS - oh dear! I always think there's something missing & the less I try to put on the more ends up on it --- plus the white space somehow gets an ink splodge & then it needs covering up so it's no longer CAS & I start all over again......same scenario a week later!
