Earthy Affirmations (Somerset Studio)

Hello
In the latest issue of Somerset Studio, one of the articles I have is Earthy Affirmations.
I was inspired not only by the Somerset Studio Art Call for the theme of Blush but also inspired by That’s Crafty white/greyboard Doodled Shrooms. Instead of matching them with their corresponding clear stamps, I wanted to give them a grungy, earthy appearance,pairing them with Affirmations.For each collage I worked with the same items, torn papers including stained That’s Crafty Rice Paper, layered onto eco dyed watercolour paper. Partial Affirmations appear on a stained shipping tag, with a central word taken from the Affirmation, to be layered at the base of each mushroom.Machine stitching the layers brought extra texture and interest to the collages.PaperArtsy Fresco Paints were used, swiped here and there, with my fingers, onto the panels.Corrugated cardboard, oh it is simply wonderful to work with!  I used the corrugated cardboard which comes within That’s Crafty’s Surfaces Mixed Media Paper/Card Kit. to form pockets for the collages, making one pocket larger to contain two collages.A full supply list and details of the pockets can be seen in the Somerset Studio article.
Thank you so much for your visit.

Friendship Notes @ Somerset Life

Hello
Turning the clock back…. to when Stampington & Co’s Somerset Life had a challenge call, relating to The Art of the Letter.  In the Oct/Nov/Dec 2017 issue of Somerset Life, my submission was published.
The idea, to limit myself to only work with a few supplies, with old book pages being the basis of each note/letter.
Glassine envelopes were the perfect pockets, allowing the letter tucked inside to peek through.Darkroom Door photo images provided the sense of friendship, setting the tone for each note/letter.Delicate details on the front of the pockets: scraps of ribbon and fabric, lace flowers and sweet paper flowers (a gift from lovely Dorthe).PaperArtsy paints created a wash of colour on the book pages also slightly obscuring the text.The idea is that on the other side, there is room for a hand-written note.


It was lovely to have this idea published.

French Laundry… Lavender Sachets @ Somerset Life

Hello
Friends of my blog will know that for a long time, I have been a fan of Character Constructions stamps (I think my first ever blog post featured a project with Character Constructions stamps).  I never tire of them.  As with any stamp that is designed to the highest level, there will always be new ways of working with them.
This idea is a simple way of making paper lavender sachets, appearing in the Oct/Nov/Dec 2017 issue of Stampington & Co’s Somerset Life magazine.  Sadly, Stampington & Co had to make the difficult decision to retire several of their titles, including Somerset Life.  I will be ever thankful for the opportunity to be published in such an exquisite magazine.
I adore this stamp from Catherine Moore.The wooden peg and buttons are adorable.The stamp above and below, are from the Blue Daisy collection.Each lavender sachet was tucked inside a Kraft pocket,the bundle of them presented in this bag…again, decorated with Character Constructions French Laundry stamps.
Thank you for your visit.
