The Inventor And Her London Beau (Published)

Hello Everyone
I am in the middle of trying to organise my files of artwork stored on my laptop as I have that sense, any time soon my Blog will be consumed with Halloween and Christmas projects so I really do need to organise older items and slot them in now and this post certainly does contain older items.
The two pieces of Oxford Impressions artwork, a wall hanging and tag were actually submitted to Rubber Stamp Madness on my behalf, which was a lovely surprise in itself but then to have the Editor contact me to say that they wanted to feature the two pieces in the form of an  article, well you can imagine how excited I was at such a prospect especially as this was the first time my art had been submitted to RSM.
It was all very interesting as I was asked questions such as what inspired me to create the two pieces, my creative process and asking whether Steampunk was popular in the U.K. those were just some of the questions along with having to provide step-by-step instructions.
The stamp credits are Oxford Impressions:- Steampunk Elements and the photo real stamp of the lady is from April In Paris.  Both sets available directly from Oxford Impressions but you will also be able to purchase them, in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.detail2Normally I would provide some details as to the process of creating the artwork but you will appreciate that it is unfair to RSM if I were to do so. However I will say that this involved lots of fussy cutting and I do mean lots as all those cogs, wheels, etc were hand-cut.
lynnemoncrieffRSMarticle1The notion behind this Steampunk inspired wall hanging was to have the woman as the inventor. detail3However, she is very smitten with the dashing London gent who walks into her life. detail1A border of stamped elements runs across the bottom edge.
detail5The second item in the article is this tag which again involved lots of fussy cutting!RSM steampunk tagMany thanks for visiting this post.
So far I have not mangaged any visits to your Blogs but I hope you are all having a good start to this week and I do plan on catching-up with you soon.
