Art Isn’t Black & White: Red Lead Art House Kit (@ Somerset Life)

Hello
In the Apr/May/June issue of Somerset Life, one of the articles I have, is centred around a Red Lead art house, as an Art Kit idea.  Red Lead sell a few different styles, the same shape with slight variations in the items included, etc.  The Art Houses could form pencil/pen/paintbrush storage,   a home for a pretty plant or something completely different, like an art kit. There are no rules!
I’ve no idea why I don’t have more photos of the actual house.  The sides were stencilled, with Red Lead stencils.  For the front, the kit already has the “windows”.  I layered the same Red Lead collage image behind each window.  The thought behind the repetition of the image is the many sides of artists.

I focused on black and white embellishments to include in the art kit,

ribbons, buttons, clips, fabric and twine and the washi ribbon attached to the wooden spool.

The Frescos used to paint the Art House also appear on the cover of the mini watercolour paper pad.  Darkroom Door Word Blocks are great favourites of mine, this is the Creativity Word Block which is about the best one you could ever have in your stash.

Stamped labels which are Red Lead stamps, were attached to wee bundles of papers such as tissue, Red Lead collage images, etc.

When I packed the Art House Kit, it was fun, finding ways to including/attach as many items as possible. Suspending and attaching items upon items.

A wooden peg, painted and one of the words on the Word Block, clipped to a bundle of stamped Art Journaling style stamps, also from Red Lead.

This was the first time I had submitted an Art Kit to Somerset Life, it was great fun and to have it published, the cherry on the cake especially as, since first reading Somerset Life, Art Kits were always something I liked to spend time pouring over the photographs.
Thank you so much for your visit.

Find Yourself In Nature (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello
In the Apr/May/June 2017 issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, one of my features is the collection of cards I am sharing in this post, which came about after some play-time with Prima Christine Adolph rub-ons, after receiving some through my DT role with That’s Crafty .
My first introduction to the artist was via Stampington & Co, from the pages of their magazines and subsequently, when I got my hands on some of the art stamps (available from Stampington).  I paired each selected rub-on with a sentiment from various Darkroom Door Word Blocks.
Word Blocks are amongst my most favourite Darkroom Door stamps, especially Wellbeing and Wilderness.  If, like me, you love the addition of words on your projects, then the Word Blocks are musts.
Each card is approx 4″ x 2.5″.
When I was working on this collection, the gentleness of the rub-ons helped with my word selection.  Overall, I wanted a collection of cards which capture the serenity in nature.  Nature shares its many lessons with us and I wanted each card to be a moment to pause and to consider the message from Mother Nature.  Whether the freedom within the wings of a butterfly or the bliss of a new blossom or the stillness within nature.

Although they are small in stature, this does not in any way hinder the inclusion of layers of fragments.

Everything was stained with PaperArtsy Infusions, they provide that fluid,

delicately coloured background on watercolour paper and stain all the elements.

If you have used the Christine Adolph Rub-Ons, you will know that they vary in size within each pack.  Cards such as these are perfect for the smaller sized rub-ons.

To add interest to the backgrounds, I stamped Christine Adolph stamps, Trims  and Collage Cube

which helped bring a textural effect by stamping randomly.  I also stamped onto some of the fragments of Infusions stained found papers and textiles,

such as this tiny piece here, layered onto Infusions stained book page.
