I am Shirley, I have been dabbling in many crafts for a very long time and have recently discovered the delights of mixed media. I live in Oxford with Colin my husband of 43 years, he is very excepting of the painty/inky mess I seem to make when I am creating my projects.

This is from a CJ I am involved in, I have left space for the
recipient to add their own words.

A selection of close up shots for a Book of Secrets made for a swap
this year.

A journal page made for the UK Scrappers Art Journey.

My first ever 'Sold' piece of artwork.
A hand pieced and quilted wall hanging.
'Tumbling Blocks'
4'x 3'
