Mono Pencil Lillies


Hi everyone. How are we? Another hot week! I know lockdown isn’t great, but we really have been lucky with the weather in general, over the last few months haven’t we?


This week, I have been working a lot on my little craft room at my studio, sorting my stamps, dies, stencils, inks and more into workable storage. It needed a revamp so I could separate the supplies I use for my YouTube and social media videos, samples for Create and Craft, away from the supplies I use for classes and workshops. It’s slowly getting there, just doing a bit at a time, in-between normal design and other work, but there is still work to do before I’m happy with it. I have recorded a little tour that I will be uploading soon, if you fancy a nosy at my crafting space, so look out for that on social media.


For this weeks blog project, I decided to get my blending pencils out! I haven’t used them for ages and dusted them off during my crafty organising. I just love the look of white on Kraft so decided to decorate a gift bag, and add a bit of depth by blending with a black & grey pencil, to give some depth. So, let’s get our craft on!


You can absolutely do this technique with another flower stamp if you have something in your stash. Also if you don’t have a Kraft gift bag, just make a card with some Kraft cardstock.


How to make:



If you have a go at this or any of our other projects, I would love for you to share your beautiful makes with us on our facebook group. We’d all love to see what you get up to in your craft space!



See you then!
