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.
The 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.They 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.
The same wing stamps were used throughout, slightly changing their position.
Redlead have some of the very best sentiment stamps, especially words/sentiments.Sentiments stamped onto white/greyboard, to create the word tilesSo 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.
