Challenge Piece #A-Art #MaremiCreativeCafe

Hello and welcome,

Drum Roll please......Today I am sharing my first Challenge piece for the 2017. I hope you are all managing to squeeze in some craft.
I decided to join the Maremi Creative Cafe run by the very talented Marta Lapkowska. Do check her out..... shes on Facebook and YouTube, heaps of fabulous tutorials.
#A-Art #MaremiCreativeCafe

This piece I have created is not what you have seen from me in the past, or the style I usually run with, its the whimsical part the got me hooked.
I just LOVE Leslie Woods work so much just had to try my hand at it. So as you may have gathered my inspiration for this piece of artwork is from the Amazing Leslie Wood. 

I am running behind in my posts, however, I am still here. We are making 52 fun Cafe Cards, that's one per week. You can join at any time

 Lets dive right on in...... 
                                      so the first one is  

                     A for Art.....

Let me know what you think of my Art Chickie, she does look and perhaps a little shy, seems to be hiding art behind her back. Mmmmm.

I will see you again tomorrow with my B Card. until i catch up to E. Geez I better get moving:))
Have a great day everyone.

PS why does the latter part of my post look as if I have used white out??? Mmm Interesting..

#AustraliaDay2017 #WintonRosePaperCreations

Hello and welcome,

I hope this finds you well. Thought I would pop in to say Happy Australia Day! I hope you have all had a wonderful time with wonderful people. Wheather you threw a snag on the barbie, held a thong throwing game or just sat and ate lots of Lamingtons with fresh cream, I hope you had time to relax and enjoy this great land we all call home.  Feeling very lucky and proud to be an Australian. Where ever you are in the world Happy Australia Day.

We have a busy week ahead with our children starting back at school and one starting for the first time, so it will be an exciting and exhausting week for some.
I will be back in studio the second week of February finishing off all the delicious bezels I have in stock.
I have so many new ideas and pieces I want to make, my hands cant possibly keep up. Write it down I keep reminding myself, write those ideas down. I am very much looking forward to getting started and being able to bring you more regular posts here and on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK. Pop on over let me know you were there, I would love to see what you have been up to.
You may even catch me doing a challenge or two. Such an exciting year ahead, I cant wait.

Have a fabulous day wherever you are ;)

UPDATES #WintonRose #necklaces

Hello and welcome,

I hope you are all well and have all your Christmas pressies and holidays sorted. Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas here with all the decorations and beautiful tree lights. Its been a great year having moved to Sydney NSW and our children are all settled. Its a little sad this time of year too as our children say goodbye to their 2016 classes. Especially our beautiful pre-school teacher who has been absolutely wonderful. We will miss seeing them in 2017.  Cant believe our baby will be starting school next year. New year new beginnings:)

So..... I haven't been posting as often here as you will have noticed. I haven't been entering challenges which I DO miss, so I may have to look at fitting some in.
I did want to retract a little from so much social media so I could spend more time in my studio CREATING which I have achieved as you will see in the photos below.  I still have so many beautiful and exciting pieces on the go which I will share later.

I have some updates for you and more pics below.

Here are all the hangouts where you can find me:

Instagram (I have FINALLY opened a Instagram account, I would love to hear from you over there and see what you've been up to.)
Pinterest (with over 180 boards to feast your eyes on)
Facebook Winton Rose
Facebook Winton Rose Paper Creations
You Tube (I will be posting more here soon)

and of course right HERE on my blog.

I hope you enjoy all those bezels I have finally filled. To complete the bezels I am having a lot of fun making #necklaces with glass beads too. They will be in my store soon.
 I hope your getting your craft on what ever it may be.

Just cracked open a new bottle of #Ice Resin too, so much fun!!!
A few of these images are a mixture of rub-ons, printed paper and from The Graphics Fairy

Thanks for stopping by and  have a great day!!!!
