Pergamano Pictures

I thought it would be nice to show you what got me back into craft after a break away from it when I was bringing up our children.
I never stopped the love of craft, but I had a family to rear and devoted my time to them, my youngest was a very demanding child who tended not to sleep, so, any spare time I had I would try to catch up on my sleep.
Then one day my Mam showed me a Pergamano card that someone had made for her and as quick as a flash I found myself saying "I could do that" it just blurted right out.
The next day my Mam went out and bought me some tools I found a picture in a magazine on childbirth which I loved and set to that night and so the picture below was born and once again I was back in the swing on things with crafting.


Another one but this time a Flapper Lady

That first picture is so alluring, very nice piece of work, you should be very satisfied with it.

I run a site devoted to the use of gold leaf and how to make it look ancient.
