…Creating on the Hill…

sharing time in the palette of life





I LOVE cute…i LOVE miniature…

Cute + Miniature = Creative Heaven


I found my mini easel at Poundland…..dont you love creative bargins!!





The black paint i used is DecoArt Lamp Black. I purchased that at The Crafts House


I applied 2-3 coats of black paint, drying in between each coat.


I have had this little book of papers for a couple of months…has anyone else found The Works a good place to mooch around for craft supplies?DSCN2096[1]

I Loved the design on this paper and the red will be a good contrast on the black backgroundDSCN2099[1]

I have “collected” quite a few punches and cutting dies over the years and this is one of my favorites and go to punches…..i think its also because i LOVE hearts.




Using a glue stick i attached 2 hearts and a thin strip of the red paper to the easel



I also added the word JOY…i cut the letters with my alphabet cutting die but you can pick up packs of letters at your local crafts store.



then comes one of my favorite parts…..adding embellishments.(I used UHU glue for this brass word because it was heavier)

Confession Time…… I have collected a lot of embellishments….i have been known to sit and organise them into shapes,sizes and colour, which is a great excuse to buy an “embellishment container”!!


I finished by inking the edges of the easel with brown ink and a sponge and 2 coats of DecoArt Matt Spray Seale.rDSCN2110[1]


My JOY easel is standing  in my Creating room…….making me Happy


Can you imagine how many souls Mother Teresa must have captured with her wonderful Heart, how Love and care she gave to others.

  3. Hi Sandra

    Love the new posting – it is really fitting for Easter.

    Missed the QFC on Wednesday. I was thinking about you all and I hope you had a good meeting.

    We are beginning to get sorted out and find new homes for all our stuff. (stuff – its coming out our ears!!)

    My sewing room is half done but I am hoping to get sorted this weekend. Can’t wait to get sewing again.

    Hope you all have a lovely Easter.

    Take care
