Guest Designer Jane Royston

It is time welcome a new Guest Designer to Frilly and Funkie.  Say hello to Jane Royston of Isle of Crafty Creations who was the Design Team's favourite from the A Little Rusty challenge.

Hi, my name is Jane Royston and I live on the Isle of Wight in the UK with my husband and 3 children. I originally trained and worked as a primary teacher but after having my last child left to be a full time mum and also used the opportunity to develop my crafting. From starting with card making my main love is now mixed media and I have been lucky enough to join some fab design teams in the past couple of years so I now have a proper excuse to create away! I love all things painty, inky and textured, but almost always use stamping as well as it is still my favourite technique of all.

For my guest designer project I decided to use both the spooky theme and the colours of Halloween! 

My altered art board is a witches lair and the background was created using a mixture of substrates, metal charms and crackle paste.

Finished off with some stamping to create my witches potions!  I wanted the wording to not be too Halloween specific so added some stickers that I felt go with the theme.
