Watch Me Fly (Somerset Studio – Affirmation Ornaments)

Hello Everyone
I am in the middle of drafting some catch-up posts, seem to have quite a bit to be sharing here!
Back in May, I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Somerset Studio because I knew that inside would be my first ever Somerset Studio article. Now, if I were to begin to explain what this means to me, this would become a lengthy post, I’ll just say that to be published in Somerset Studio, has in itself been a dream come true but an article, that for me is one of those times when it is a dream too big for me to even dare to dream it – yes, it means that much to me! What made it all the more special, I knew my friend Vickie Kammerer also had an article within this issue. Now there is an artist who embraces colour.  Vickie does not shy away from colour, using it with such energy and creativity.
I’m sure you understand that I will not be sharing techniques for the artwork, only photos and some links for some of the products featured.


Rubber Stamps Sentiments – Redlead Paperworks
MDF heart – That’s Crafty Alterables
(paperclay, Frescos, Fresco Crackle Glaze, White/Greyboad – also available from That’s Crafty)

untieyourwingsThe thought process behind the inspiration for the ornaments is written within the article so again, I’d be uncomfortable sharing it all here after Somerset Studio so generously sharing my article but I can tell you that each ornament was essentially created the same way, with little tweaks to bring variation and the meaning behind the ornaments if the positive force of affirmations.untieyourwingstwoThey are a lovely size for either indoors or outdoors although if they were for outdoor display they would probably need to be somewhere a little bit sheltered from the elements (especially Scottish rain!) and definitely a coat or two of suitable outdoor varnish.
givemewingsThe same wing stamps were used throughout, slightly changing their position.
givemewingstwoRedlead have some of the very best sentiment stamps, especially words/sentiments.willflySentiments stamped onto white/greyboard, to create the word tilesiwillflydetailSo there we have it, a quick run through of the trio of affirmation ornaments. I cannot thank Somerset Studio enough for the opportunity to have an article within their pages and to always be lucky enough to play with fabulous supplies from Redlead and That’s Crafty.
Many thanks for your visit.

      … {sigh} … I clicked ‘send’ before I meant to. (I’d be dangerous if I had a brain!). … to continue …

      I know how I’d feel being published in ANYTHING (including the leaflet for the local Co-Op), so I really can appreciate how out of this world it must feel for you Lynne. Although (in my opinion) you should be a regular (monthly & on the payroll) contributor, and, in the not too distant future, some magazine is going to find out what a little gold nugget of mind-blowing crafty brilliance you are and will snap you up so that no other magazine can have you.

      I’ve peeped into the magazine and can see your article. I love the way they’ve set it out and even the fonts they’ve used. It looks classy, and very beautiful.

      So thrilled for you Lynne. You deserve this wonderful moment. Very much so.

      Oh .. nearly forgot … I LOVE the Affirmation Ornaments! Were they for sale on a craft stall or at a craft exhibition, I’d absolutely buy one – probably that first one … for my wonderful daughter. It would ‘speak’ to her.
      Truly GREAT makes!

    Lynne, I love the antiquing process you have applied to these hearts and wings. The sentiments are perfect! I am amazed at the quantity of great words and sentiments Redlead offers. I was so excited for you when I saw your name in the contents page! I know you’re over the moon with this publication of your beautiful works. What wonderful pieces to give to someone heading out on their own. Best to you, Lynne. Keep creating (and sharing, of course!). inkybru xx
