Nail it down


yes Yes I know I am MIA but I have valid reasons for it... I am genuinely going through a Low Mojo phase and had it not been for my DT projects, I am sure I would not have been crafting.. ( Thanks Color Conceptions for this)

Our latest challenge at color conceptions is all about hangings.. It can be anything as long as it can be hanged and the twist being you need to add textures to it... To know everything about the challenge and the details, you can check here.

I made a house warming gift for one of my friends which I am going to get framed.. I used Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paints for the very first time and I have a long way to go with them and experiment some more...

I will not ramble much.. Check the pics and will follow up with details...

not too sure if you can see the crackled effect on the cloud

Hi Khush,
Just popping over to Congrat you on being the winner over at Charisma Cardz :) I wanted to come & see your design, which btw is wonderful. I know what you mean in regards to the mojo lacking sometimes. It happened to me for 5 months straight not long ago, but eventually it came back :) I'm sure your friends are going to absolutely love your design. I love it. You have done a fantastic job :) Thank you so much for sharing. Hugz, Lisa.

P.S Would love for you to come, visit & like :)
