Creative Girl Tote Bags (Somerset Life)


Hello
Turning the clock back to the Jul/Aug/Sept 2017 issue of Somerset Life when I had a trio of Creative Girl tote bags published.
The bags were made in answer to a challenge call for canvas bags, something which I’ve enjoyed altering since I began to rubber stamp.  They are literally a blank canvas for any style.
Red Lead stencils which are listed in the Supplies within the article  and stamps from PaperArtsy JOFY and also from Red Lead and Paperbag Studios.
Each page was decorated on both sides.  The instructions are within the article but it’s no mystery to see that the bags were pained (PaperArtsy Frescos)
Side one

Side two
Normally I like to add bits of this ‘n’ that but that wasn’t the style I had in mind for the totes, I wanted the stamps and stencilled sentiments to be the focus.Side two
This bag simply had a black re-cycled silk sari ribbon bow.Flipped over to the rear side and “artful spirit” is the stencilled sentiment.It was fun to work on the bags especially as my colour choice isn’t or I should say, wasn’t as they were made some many months ago. Being published is obviously the cherry on the icing, on the cake!

Autumn Leaves (Stampington’s Take Ten)

Hello
I have so much catching-up to do but instead of putting pressure on myself to schedule regular blog posts, I’ve realised that the sensible route is to ease myself in and see where it takes me.
I cannot explain why but 2017 found me not to be in cardmaking mode.  There I was, routinely submitting card collections to The Stampers’ Sampler and Take Ten and suddenly, the brakes were on.  It wasn’t a conscious decision on my part, just “one of those things” and it would be silly to force myself to make cards when the desire isn’t great at the moment.
I share that only because it meant that when I had cards published, it somehow meant more to me (if that were at all possible because I take no publication for granted).  I had a surprise in finding a wee card collection in Take Ten..  
Each card features a beautiful leaf stamp either from Red Lead Paperworks Autumn Beauty Leaves or Darkroom Door Word Block Stamp Wilderness or Leaves Stamp Set

I had some pieces of handmade paper which I had been treasuring for a long time and it was really this paper which ultimately set me on the path to make this collection.

With the pretty embedded petals, which I didn’t want to obscure, it worked perfectly with the Take Ten criteria of speedy cards as I didn’t need to concern myself with a background, other than some splatters.

A stamped word and fragments of tree bark and suchlike were the only additions to each card.

Autumn seems such a long way off in my corner of the world where there is still a Winter to battle through!!!
