Something a little different....
I was browsing earlier on, through my endless pieces of craft that I've never blogged to yourselves and I came across some of my parchment craft.
Now, for those who didn't know, this is sort of where I started on my cardmaking journey... a little bit of parchment here and there, doing articles for magasines to having my own patterns printed in a national magasine quite a few years ago... until I discovered 'normal' cardmaking and stamping, and my parchment got put on a bit of a backburner.
But I wanted to share a few pieces with you to show you where I started my creative journey after cross stitch.
This was a pattern traced from a book I had a few years ago. The lacework was something that I loved to do, not necessarily the coloured work... it was always the lace! That was the most therapeutic piece for me as you had to have patience and time to do it... rush it and you spoil it.
This card was made for a swap that I took part in in one of the many parchment groups I was once part of. The outside border was a trace pattern but the rest of it was created by putting a few other things together.
I can't even remember when this was, most probably around 2010... but parchment craft never dates.. it just gets more invaluable and treasured...
I hope you like today's projects... I will be back to show you a couple more tomorrow. xxx
