Crafty Creatives CCBox15....


This months box was a little different... The theme is MONOCHROME! So no colour at all!!! Very on trend if you follow fashion and also very suited to the grey skies we now have! 

First thing that hopped out of the box, as usual, is the art card. This months art card is by New Zealand artist Jo Newham. I really love the art card this month and its has also made me determined to do something with the huge pile of art cards I now have! 

 The kit this month is to make your own needle felted sheep! Ccbox7 bought us the needle felt leaf kit which I absolutely adored so I am really looking forward to this kit! 

The Domino beads in the box also caught my eye. Although I'm not sure what these will turn into yet! 

Also included in the box are;

•A graphite pencil - not used one of these since college!
•A Stabilo Sensor Pen - I have several of these and they are excellent for using in my cardmaking!
•A Crafty Creatives doodle book - this is so cute can't wait to have a scribble!

•Single polymer clay rose - I love this! Again not sure what to do with it, at the moment I actually just want to stare at it! 
• Mini blackboard peg - I really want to use this on a card but it might be too big! 
•Some black and white headed pins - I do lots of sewing so these will be used again and again!

•Tea bag folding squares - I have never done tea bag folding before so I'm looking forward to learning yet another craft! Thanks CC!
•Aubrey Beardsley prints - I LOVE these! I did a huge project on this illustrator at school (many years ago!) I recognise many of these! 

The final item is a fat quarter of this amazing monochrome fabric! I have so many ideas for this I don't know what to pick!!!! 

This month I aim to do lots of posts with all the things I've made! I have been so busy the last month! And poorly! I realised that I have made lots of things that I haven't shared so watch this space! 

Remember I am on Instagram @mrsgcrafts and twitter (link on blog) and I share a lot of my makes here. Check them out this month with #ccbox15 #craftycreatives
