- Hi, Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting. I'm Carol, married to Bill, with two children. I love to dabble in all types of crafty pursuits and enjoy nothing more than attending workshops and learning new techniques, which I then try to reproduce at home....sometimes with success!!!

Here are my offerings for this months swap. The theme was nautical and to tell you the truth I didn't have a lot in my stash for sea-faring swaps, still I have had a good rummage; (and in so doing found LOADS!! of long forgotten goodies.)
This Vintage style postcard uses a crayon resist technique I learnt from Rachel Greig, of Dark Room Door fame. (She was over here earlier this year). You simply highlight areas of light with a child's white wax crayon and the n do the usual with your distress inks. The crayon resists the colour and the all you do is polish it with a soft cloth and the light areas are really bright.
