Let The Party Begin (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
Recently, HERE, I shared a post with celebration cards, which were published in The Stampers’ Sampler, for the Celebration Challenge Call. I mentioned in that post that alongside the cards, I also had a trio of canvas panels published.  The canvas panels, even moreso than the cards, were a conscious effort of me to “let go”, to not hold back on the application of colour and use of colour.  It was actually quite freeing!
It’s always an honour to be published in The Stampers’ Sampler, none moreso when they make a feature of my submissions and I would say, being very honest, that although I never, ever take for granted being published in any of the Stampington titles I submit to, always staggered to be published add to that, when the artwork is not immediately associated with my style makes it to print, if it is at all possible, I’d say it means even more to me because it does not come naturally to me.
I’ve quite a few detail photographs for each piece so intend to share the panels over several posts. I think it’s fair to say, the panel I am sharing in this post and the subsequent ones, are probably the brightest, boldest pieces I’ve ever shared here!
8″x8″ canvas panel (Links for stamps and stencils appear throughout this post.)

Redlead’s She Lets Herself Fly is the stencil that this girl with wings comes from (a wonderful stencil featuring two girls – the other appears on one of the other panels which I’ll be sharing another day).
twoI continued the theme of stamping onto fabric throughout the cards and canvas panel submissions, such as her party  hat ( HERE) and balloon (which appears on this stamp set, HERE.)
threeTo add texture to her dress I used a That’s Crafty Dinky Stencil.  I so love a Dinky Stencil, something I never imagined I’d say but not only do I like the designs, I am fond of their scale, perfect for adding the smallest touch of stencilling.  I used the same stencil in two ways, to give me the yellow dots and the circles.  A hint of sparkle in the form of a trio of rhinestones on the hem of her dress.fourThe bold colour choice was really determined by the fabric,fivewith let the party begin repeatedly stamped onto the background
sixwith words stencilled onto painted cardstock to create word tiles.  I tried to link this stencil but cannot find it over at Redlead Paperworks, maybe it is out of stock at the moment.
A grungy background where I allowed the white of the panel to peek through.
sevenPompom trim brings a whimsical touch and
eightright back up to the top edge of the panel there is more stamping onto fabric with the  banner (a PaperArtsy LPC stamp).
nineMany thanks for your visits and comments, even moreso during a time when I haven’t managed to visit your own blogs, I really do miss those visits.

    How wonderful Lynne! Sometimes it is good just to let yourself go outside your comfort zone and just see what happens. I just love the explosion of colour here and those little pompoms are an absolute delight! Beautiful work! Hugs, Anne xx

    Hello sweet friend,
    yes I agree, Lynne, this is the brightest, I`m sure I have seen coming from you 🙂 You write it was a wonderful lesson in letting go, and I can see you enjoyed playing with the bright colors, and all the wonderful stamps, used. It looks great how you made the background-maybe scraped the color on,-with something- giving an abstract feeling. You have masterly also found fabric matching the colors, or maybe opposite , which makes it all get together so beautifully, and with the words tags ,too I love the stamping on fabric, and your play,- congratulations my dear, -also when turning outside your comfort zone, you create magic !!
    Dorthe, xx

    Oh dear! i think i referred to the cards as panels and here are the panels!!
    OMGoodness! Look at the joy and fun on this panel!! So many beautiful details to pour over! There again, are the beautiful old roses and I just love the addition of the pink crochet and pink pom poms! Revealing some of the white space was a perfect choice! I love this Lynne and look forward to the others! You have such a delicate sense of whimsy in your art!! xo
