Parching



I decided 2017 would be the year I taught myself a new craft....I have been toying with the idea of Parchment craft for a while now,  so armed with a few tools of the trade I have started my Parching Journey...........
After much practise and torn papers I found I was happy enough to share this piece..


I have just treated myself to the Groovi system by Clarity Stamps.. I did think it was cheating at first but feel it can be incorporated with the real craft.....So watch this space, I will let you know
how I get on with it when I receive it.xxx

Gorgeous parchment Doreen, The Groovi system really helps I have one but have only used it twice and I have had mine since 2015 LOL. Judging by your work, it will not be long before you are creating stunning parchment cards. Hugs Jennifer xx

I am a parchment girl too Doreen, it's relaxing and the results are always good. Wait till you start colouring your images [from the inside] and you will 'wow' at your own results.xx{aNNie}

Looks nice Doreen. I have done parchment crafting too, some years ago. But in the end gave up on it. Other things crossed my path. xxx

This is beautiful Doreen. I too did parchment craft quite a few years ago. I have recently got back into parchment thanks to the Groovi system. You will soon get the hang of it and judging by what you have created so far will be WOWing us with your creations.

Beautifully done, Doreen! It feels so good to be back visiting and commenting. Much as I enjoyed my visits with family over Christmas and the New Year, it's nice to be home and back in my routine. :-D
