So today I have managed to craft 
All be it with a slightly thick head!
I have been colouring images over the last couple of weeks and not converting them to projects!

So today I decide to complete something 
The beginning of a new year always means a new pad for me 
So I decided to cover the front of the one that I bought from Tesco...

I decided to use a Gorguss Girl image that I stamped last year and had never coloured...

I used a cardstock backing cut to the size of the pad and then added all the layers and the image to this...
The sentiment is a beautiful stamp from 

They also have a facebook group where you can share your projects and get amazing inspiration here!

One that I had purchased last year and never use
One thing that I have promised myself this year is that I am going to make time for crafting and I am going to blog! So here I am 

I have coloured the image with Pro Markers and I have used a clear gel pen to add the detail to the coat and the umbrella - just adding a little clear droplet

I have used scrap pieces of card stock to add to the layers in 
co-ordinating colours
deep red, grey and cream
I have used a sheet of craftwork cards DSP that I purchased in a paper pack many years ago 
One of those that you stroke for several months before cutting! 

I have used sticky gems that were from the crafting section in Wilkinsons 
Love them!

I hope you like my finished project and here's to a crafty 2016
