New Stamps: Carved Leaves @ That’s Crafty!

Hello
It is an exciting time, new stamp releases! There are four new stamp sets in total, for this post, I am focusing on the Lynne’s Carved Leaves Stamp Sets 1 and 2.
On social media (FB and Instagram) I shared two videos showing the “journey” of the Carved Leaves Stamp sets. Last summer, I played around with Cyanotypes, with leaves from the garden. At the time, there was no thought beyond playing around. Months later, when I decided to do something with the Cyanotypes (a concertina book and collages) I realised there was potential to carve stamps from the Cyanotype images.  So that’s exactly what I did, I hand carved a full set of leaves.  Then the leap from there, to actual stamp sets from That’s Crafty!
Laura compiled the words for both stamp sets and I couldn’t be happier with her choice.
With the stamps, their size remains true to the original size.  For me, this was important feature.
In the photos, I coloured the stamps with That’s Crafty Flat Matte Sprays.  I will be sharing videos of this in the coming days.

Huge Thanks to That’s Crafty! for producing the new stamps and all the hard work they do.  Also, to the team, who all worked with my new stamps to create the most amazing samples to take to HOCHANDA.  There will be two shows 29th April 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.  Details are HOCHANDA on Freeview 85, Sky 673, Freesat 817.  We would love you to tune in and watch us, record the shows or catch-up them on rewind over at HOCHANDA.

Stretch Your Wings And Fly: Pendants (Somerset Studio)

Hello
This is another re-wind post, sharing two pendants which were published in Sept/Oct 2018 Somerset Studio, two Mixed Media pendants which had focal elements of a word (Red Lead stamp), stamped onto birch tree bark, with an application of ICE Resin.I worked with all I had to hand, including some beads which were re-cycled from broken jewellery and the stamped birch tree bark was layered onto suede which was from an old suede skirt. Packaged with re-cycled corrugated cardboard with one of my Affirmations stamped onto scrap calico.  Wings…the second pendant.You can see that this pendant is a variation on the first onewith similar style of packaging. Thank you for taking the time to visit this post.

Light, Darkness – A Book @ That’s Crafty!

Hello
On Sunday, I shared my D.T. blog post over at the That’s Crafty Blog.A peek at the project.
Although I knew of this particular style of book, it was reading Rachel Hazell’s Bound, that inspired me to finally make such a book.
