Rafia Challenge Week

Farming is the theme for this month at Gingersnap Creations and this week is all about Rafia.  I haven't used it before in any craft project but actually it is really easy to work with and there are loads of ways of including it.  If you fancy seeing some of these ways, pop over to Gingersnaps as my fellow DT members have all come up with a different idea.

I decided to make mine into wheat sheafs which I then painted with acrylic ink and used liquid pearls for the seed heads.  

My gorgeous Maritime Dame is from a new set by Lynne Perrella for PaperArtsy.  I bought her at the weekend at the Hobbycraft Show at the NEC in Birmingham and I had to get her out onto paper as I think she is amazing.

I also incorporated my favourite fish from Art Journey.

Thanks for visiting and hope you like my take on rafia and feel inspired to enter the fun!

Whatever you do this week ... keep inspired!!  x
