Debs has made us a little book...

Hello there!

We're delighted to have our first Top 3 guest with us today.  Debs (Deborah Wainwright) was a Top 3 winner from our February challenge and she is joining us to share her 'kraft card' make with us....

Hello everyone my name is Deborah Wainwright although my friends call me Debs. I live in Essex with my husband and my cat Kashmir. I am so thrilled to be here as a guest. 

I have always been creative from drawing as a child, learning to knit and crochet, as well as having a go at making jewellery, but nothing grabbed me as much as crafting which I started two years ago in March. 

I enjoy all kinds of making art, from sketching to Mixed Media. I enjoy getting painty and inky and seeing where it goes. I tend to create intuitively which sometimes works well and other times not so well but for me the process has been become the focus.

Today I'm sharing a little a little book made from Kraft Card which I have decorated for my husband to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. 

Inside are some photos from each anniversary and there are also three little tags which pull out and represent each year. The fourth is yet to be created.
I have used a mix of paints and sprays with fabric as well as Kraft Card. On the book itself I have used crackle paste to age it as well as adding some rusting techniques all of which you can see in more detail on my blog.

A fabulous project Debs and a great example of how kraft card can be used - thank you!

Astrid will be with us on Saturday and another beautiful project so we hope to see you then!
