Back with Bargello


After what some might call a long break - I am back to blog.  I hope to be a more frequent blogger than I have been of late.  It's a time thing.  I am sure you busy people know what I mean.  I was on holiday over Easter and my birthday and the run up to the trip took all of my time AND energy! We did however, have a super time with my sister and her husband. We flew to Singapore and after a few days, joined a Royal Caribbean cruise ship and sailed to the Middle East.  In time I may even include a photograph or two here - once they have been downloaded.
Since I last blogged, we have a new computer and a new camera - courtesy of the burglars who ransacked our house before Christmas.  May they rot in Hades.  So I have had to learn the new idiosyncrisises of the pc and I will have to be the brains behind the camera set up too, since my husband will only ever use Word on a computer.  So please bear with me.
Here we have a card which has a hand made Bargello background theme going on.  Kim introduced us to this technique last Saturday at a class at Davina's - Stampcraft.  We made the background paper using several strips of coordinating papers and stuck them down onto sticky paper.  then chopped them up again into long strips and placed them in a wavy type of pattern to create the effect you see above.  I then stamped onto the panel and made stamped flowers out of the same papers.  If I have not described that too well, check out Kim's blog.
I am now going out for lunch today, so must go..........
