Mummy Monday!

It's time for the next installment of Mummy Monday! Today I'm introducing Belinda Fireman- a very talented artist who I met online on an e-course. As you'll read Belinda has a son and twin girls- she's certainly got her hands full and I was amazed with what she achieves in one day. Her work is such a breath of fresh air, I love how her pieces seem to radiate joy & happiness. Please read on :)

Oo they are happy pieces of art aren't they.

Embossing pens have a sticky clear or pale blue ink in them, you sprinkle embossing powder (thermagraphic powder)on it then heat it so the powder melts. you can also pounce chalk and mica powders on it and it will stick.

It's not a glue though so no good for metal leaf or glitter.
