Layers of Calico

Hello all, I've just a sneak peek for you today, hoping to tempt you over to the Calico Crafts blog to see what I've been up to with the Calico Craft Parts this time!


Combined with book pages and crackle medium and a few others of my favourite things, I've created a layered ATC... I'd love to know what you make of it if you've time to hop over and take a look.

Follow your dreams.  They know the way.
Kobe Yamada




Oh, and for anyone who wanted to see more of the "old house in Paris, covered in vines" mentioned in my Dollshouse Gallimaufry, it's now available for viewing over at Cestina's dolls houses... or at least Chapter One is!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fantastic weekend everybody.

Would love to be inside your creative mind Alison, if only to have a peek for one minute. Don't use enough crackle on my projects but after seeing how gorgeous this looks I will be.

Grrrrrrr still can't get onto Calico Crafts blog (ok so it was only 15mins ago when I last tried lol). This looks awesome and hopefully I will get to see it at it's fullness later on today. Love the vines on the dollshouse, it truly looks totally amazing and I wish I could see it for real. Happy Creating :-) Kezzy xxx
