Hello :)

forget-me-not craft has been a project in progress for quite a long time and delayed by all sorts of distractions from actually crafting to not quite finishing the design for my banner and background!

But it is finally here!

I created both with elements and papers created from photographs I'd taken, the squirrel from a drawing and the little circle element created in craft artist.

The blue tit I cut out from a photo and converted it to a drawing.
The duck is from a photo, I cut the duck out, turned it to a silhouette and then changed it to pale blue.
The forget-me-not flowers were cut out from the photo used as the backing for the header.

I am teaching myself how to draw and the squirrel was copied from How to Draw Anything by Mark Linley. I then scanned it in and cut it out.  This is my favourite drawing I've done so far!

  1. Congratulations on your Beautiful new blog, its looking Great.

  2. Great blog Natasha -love your designs. I haven't worked out sizing on backgrounds for blog yet, did try once but file size too big I think.

  3. I had to "faff" for a while to before I got something that worked.
    I think the biggest problem is that we all use different size screens to view on.
    So when I created it I checked out how it looked on my iPad mini as well as some other screen sizes.
