Craft Artist

This was my creation playing with craft artist a montage of photos of my gorgeous grand daughter Sophie

What I created for my son and his girlfriend to celebrate their engagement. Tim proposed to Charlotte while they were on holiday in Florida at Christmas. The centre photo was taken a few minutes after Tim proposed while they were visiting Harry Potter World. Charlotte is red eyed from crying with joy. Also a close up of the beautiful engagement ring Tim bought for Charlotte. The caricature was drawn while they were on holiday too.

Photo's taken over the Christmas period and shared with a family member

Medal Parade

Photobook I created on Serif Craft Artist for my son Tim's Medal Parade after he returned from a 6 month tour of Afghanistan 

I love using craft artist to create special projects for gifts for family and friends.
Now working on a project to create a photobook of Tim & Charlotte's holiday in Florida
