Path of Positivity – Grace

It’s time for a new challenge at the Path of Positivity and this month the theme is Grace. Once again I find myself drawn to the beauty of nature. I wanted to use my chosen images to convey the gracefulness of nature, the way a butterfly floats amongst the flowers, the gentle working of the bee as it gathers the pollen, the effortless flight of birds and the clover dancing in the wind. So often we hear about the wildness of nature but there is also a grace in the natural world.

I should warn you this is a photo heavy post!

Materials used: 



Décosse’s Dynamite Doodles – Papers and elements from the Naturally Cool sets
Canson Mi-Teintes colouring paper
Polychromo pencils
Crafters Companion Die’sire Create a Card Circle Accordion Die set
printer card
Crafters Companion Envelobox Score Board









I printed out a couple of A4 sheets of three different papers, three solid colours and one patterned, on white printer card. I also printed out my chosen brads onto the Canson paper and coloured the images with Polychromo crayons.

I fussy cut t
he coloured images out and also           made a blank frame for my quote to fit into.


I cut out all the parts I needed to make up my accordion card from the different papers. I also fussy cut some leaves from the patterned paper to add as decoration to the quote panel and the blank panel at the back. (This last panel is to write the card dedication on.)

SAM_2811(watermarked)Having prepared all the parts I assemSAM_2812(watermarked)bled my card.



I made a box envelope from white card and decorated the front with panels cut from the left over bits of the printed papers.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
