Siren (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
I would like to share in this post one of a trio of cards (the others will follow in subsequent blog posts) which was published in The Stampers’ Sampler (Apr/May/Jun issue). It was the first time I had submitted PaperArtsy artwork so I was thrilled to discover that they had made the grade!
I will admit that I came to the LPC stamps a bit late. I have been a great admirer of Lynne Perrella since the first time I spied her artwork in a copy of Somerset Studio, going on to purchase a few of her own stamps so it is strange that I came to her collection for PaperArtsy so late in the day.
The cards were so enjoyable to make, as I gathered little elements to bring texture and shimmer although they were time consuming.
Metallic paints and Twinkling H20s along with texture paste and TCW stencils onto a panel of watercolour paper is the base for this card.one.1I love tags and it is not unusual for a tag to be incorporated into my cardmaking.  For this I stamped onto a stained tag, layering stamped borders to bring further interest to the tag element.one.2I also repeatedly stamped the ship’s sails around the edge of the tag.  Shimmer from scraps of metallic fabrics catch the light.one.3This fabulous stamp is from Oxford Impressions, The Deep which along with all of the LPC stamps can be purchased from That’s Crafty.one.5As I said, I will share the other two cards in future posts, it would be far too photo heavy to have shared them as one blog post.
In the meantime, many, many thanks for your visit. I hope life is being kind to you all and maybe you are starting to see the first signs of summer, of course that depends on which hemisphere you call home! We have days of sunshine although there is still a nip in the air and blustery winds. I have some beachy inspired cards to be sharing but personally, I am not quite feeling those languid summer days, as yet!

What Motivates You? …. (Somerset Place)

Hello Everyone
I had the loveliest of surprises when Stampington & co made contact, posing some questions my way which would appear on their Blog, Somerset Place.
Stampington & co have been so good to me, supportive and encouraging, which never ceases to amaze me.  I have absolutely no idea how I reached this place, to be named alongside a host of artists who I admire greatly, including the lovely and incredibly talented Renee Zarate but also, amongst others, the amazing Seth Apter and Anna Corba whose stamps and books I own and whose style I have adored since the first time I came across her art and Sandra Everston who is another incredible artist and again someone whose stamp designs I own.
The artwork shown alongside my response is something I will be sharing on my Blog at a later date, once I get myself a wee bit better organised.  It is a card featuring PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection stamps, a card which appears in the latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
Have a wonderful week and I hope to start up-dating my Blog soon enough …. I do say “hope”!

A Place For Secrets & Dreams

Hello Everyone
I am delighted to be sharing a tutorial over at the PaperArsty blog.
This tutorial is based around the latest challenge theme which is Words.  As you can see, I had fun with various Frescos and a bundle of stamps and you can probably guess what it is I created.blogphotoIf you would like to view the tutorial then please visit HERE.
I am so missing my visits around blogland, viewing your art and reading what is taking place in your lives. I hope life is being kind to all of you and you are finding enough creative time in your week.  When I start to feel a little bit better I will certainly be catching-up with all of you, I cannot wait.
Kindest Wishes
