Football Ted and Fishing Friends

My latest additions to my website feature that wonderful prize winning bear Popcorn and his friends. He is likely to be popping up again in many guizes. For my little female munchkins I have added my Ladybird Fairy Clock and hopefully I will be adding my Mermaid Clock tomorrow - this will be an addition to my Mermain Money Box, Mini Waste Bin and other items in the pipeline.

On another note, I am wondering where my Crafters Companion Demo Team Shirt is? I have noticed my friend and colleague Marcea modelling hers - I am just a little gealous!

Bi for now

New Children's Range of Magical Creations

Hello Everyone

Here is a new addition to my shop www.debrafarrell.co.uk.  I am working on lots of magical creations for children and will be adding more each day.  I have noticed from my site that I have lots of people visiting from the US so if any of them are reading this, thanks for all your support.  I am also now delivering to Europe and the US with free postage!!!

Each of my creations are hand painted and make lovely gifts or additions to any child's bedroom.

Now must get on, lots to paint.

Fusion Madness!

Hello All

Not much blogging this weekend but I have been out of bed at 4:00 and 5:00 am during the weekend - why you might ask - going on holiday?  Travelling to distant places?  No, I got up to paint!  You will all know what it is like when you suddenly get the urge to pick up a paint brush or for non painters it could be a pair of scissors, pens or knitting needles;  with me it is always a paint brush.

I have been trying to work on a whole new product range but until this weekend all creativity seemed to have left me.  However, my muse is back and I am now sure to be on target for my new range to be added to my site at the beginning of July.

I created this elegant bin yesterday morning, and went free-hand as my ink pads were all worn out.  Hope you like it.  Now must get back to my paints.

Happy crafting

Sakura Pens Meet Art Clay Silver

Hi Ladies

First of all, thank you all for joining.

I thought I would share with you one of my favourite pieces of jewellery that I made using art clay silver and shrink plastic with sakura glitter pens (I love them).  The silver leaves were made using a leaf mould made from a rubber stamp which came in two sizes, large and small.  The small stamp was used for the silver and then I stamped the shrink plastic with the large size and luckily it shrank down to just smaller than the silver. 

This is the only piece of jewellery that I wish I hadn't sold, I just love it so much but my customer loved it too so I know it has a good home.

Hope you like it and maybe it will inspire you to have a go.

Welcome Jacqui and Marcea my new followers number 12 and 13 my fellow Crafters :-)  For anyone who is interested, I have now changed my Web Address to  www.debrafarrell.co.uk and am always interested in any comments about how I could improved my site so please let me know what you think.


Welcome Sheena

How lucky am I, my friend and colleague Sheena Douglass is now my follower number 11!  I will certainly have to improve my blogging skills as anyone who follows Sheena's blog will know, most of her entries are hillarious - she is one of those people who makes other people laugh.  Thanks Sheena.

I have been busy during the last few days making cards for me to actually use - I have lots of birthdays, a wedding and a Holy Communion during this month.  I decided to use the Church Door Scene from Crafters Companion Winter Tales CD but adapt it for my Holy Communion Card.  I think it worked out really well, just whent over the snow with a pen and covered the holly with a lovely Wisteria using my Serif Scrap Book Artist and used a picture of Cara wearing a bridesmaid dress which I then overlayed with a holy communion dress.  I love my Scrap Book Artist.  For anyone who hasn't used it, if you like using a PC and want to actually see some of the pictures you take rather than them being stuck on your PC never to be viewed again, then SBA is a must and really easy to use.  Now you may be wondering where the picture is?  Just realised I posted it without taking a picture !!!!! So I have attached a picture of a Mothers Day card I made using Sheena's lovely stamps.

Now must get on, I have a stall at a summer fair at the beginning of July and need to make lots of things to sell.

Just for Sara

My friend and colleague Sara Davies sent me a mail recently asking if I could create some simple cards using paint fusion for the German Launch of Sheena's Paint Fusion products. It was surprising how hard it is to create simple cards, and what is my idea of simple may not be simple may not be another persons idea of simple. However, here are a few of the cards I came up with. I wasn't as clever as Katie who added German Text, I felt that knowing my luck I would probably end up saying something totally inappropriate when translating!

I have been a bit quiet lately as I have been busy with my new Grandson and also working on a new set of products using Polymer Clay which will be going up for sale in July.

Thanks for any comments, all I need are more followers!
