Hello everyone, Louise here.

I am finally through what was an extremely hectic week and now I'm getting back on track. Firstly I'll tell you what I did last we because you arty folk might be interested. I work in a primary school as a higher level teaching assistant, I am also the art and display coordinator so if anything arty is required I'm the one people run to. Anyhow, last week we had a full week of Chinese activities to celebrate Chinese new year. I held 11 workshops (yes 11!) to create two huge Chinese dragons which we used in a parade on Friday. It was great fun but it was hard work and required a lot of planning and preparation. Here is the finished result.....

I'm so glad I had the brain wave to create the structure from coat hangers, being able to hang it up made the job so much easier. I hope you like them :)


OK on to what Dottie's world is for..... showing of the fabulous downloads and other products from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

I have been making another easel card, I love these because you are able to make all kinds of fab 3D scenes with a little imagination. Here I have made our cute little lady sir forward from the card base in a little flower garden....




Here you can see that you don't need towers of foam pads or piles of silicone glue to achieve this 3D effect. All you actually need is a folded strip of card attached to the back of the image with the fold at the top. Simple hey!


I think I smell burning food! Must dash!
