Butterfly Wings @ The Muse

Hello
Today, I am delighted to have a project to share, over at  Sandra Evertson’s RELICS & ARTIFACTS Muse,.  I thought I would share a sneaky peek of my project!
Although you cannot see it in the sneaky peek, it was lovely to be able to include one of my That’s Crafty Lynne’s Affirmations on this project, the words suiting this little butterfly child.
If you are interested, all details can be viewed HERE.

New Additions of Character Constructions Stamps @ That’s Crafty

Hello
Laura has added to the stock availability of Character Constructions stamps at That’s Crafty.
Included in the latest additions is the stamp featured on this card from my Card Art feature in Craft Stamper.  This stamp is from Timekeeper’s Garden (No. 6).  There are also some plates from the 2017 Character Constructions release of Blue Daisy and Adventures in Tea No. 9 is now available once again after selling out so quickly.  If you love a generous dose of whimsy in your art, take a peek at Adventures in Tea No. 7!

Live, Love, Dream

Hello
Over at the That’s Crafty blog today, I am sharing this project which was made earlier in the year for That’s Crafty’s appearance at Stitches.blogtcpost
It’s quite a grungy piece but unfortunately the colours didn’t really “take” very well in the photograph, it is more slate blue than it appears.

Intentions, Destiny & Following Dreams – A Wanderlust Paper Prayer Flag (Somerset Studio)

Hello
Earlier this year I had an article published in Somerset Studio, relating to a paper prayer flag I made after watching a Wanderlust 2016 tutorial from Kasia Avery.
Although I had great intentions from day one (when I signed up for 2016), to watch and work alongside the tutorials as they were released, as they say, life got in the way.  However, Kasia’s tutorial caught my eye.  I pondered why it was, that this one caught my attention so instantaneously and realised that her approach was so familiar to me.
Strangely, when I began the flag, it seemed a newer direction for me but on completion, the realisation that the process of the items I  gathered, which was all instinctively and my approach for staining the various papers and textiles, was not for me new at all. Other lessons were re-affirmed, that for me I am most content when I go with the flow and do not question choices being made once I begin a project.   Also, the importance of words and another lesson I did learn, that for me, I do not need to turn my back onto old favourites, including vintage laces, the layering of those tattered elements is my form of story telling.

I want to make it clear that I gave due credit to Wanderlust and Kasia Avery within my article and the significance of Wanderlust to me.

Various resin pieces were used throughout, either stamped before the resin applied, stamped onto resin paper or simply scraps of resin paper.

This wonderful Frozen Charlotte face (I think it is either paperclay or papier mache) was a gift from Dorthe Hansen.

The Redlead stamps are some of my absolute favourites and the Affirmation style words were exactly what I wanted for my paper prayer flag.

Although this will not be returned to me from Stampington, when working on it, I had this idea of positive words and thoughts being carried in the breeze as the wind gently

sways the prayer flag.

The heart has spirit – the heart is paperclay, it is a PaperArtsy LPC stamp.

A jumble of textiles which if this flag were displayed in a garden, would become more tattered but I believe that would only enhance the beauty of the textiles and even the papers.

Mica tile layered to this particular stamped label.

I am sharing my own photos but I could not have wished for a more beautifully photographed article within the pages of Somerset Studio and that is thanks to Christen Hammons and her Somerset Studio team and to generously (and surprisingly) include the presentation package which I couldn’t have imagined they would also include.
Thank you for your visit to this scheduled post.

It’s In Your Heart, To Live For Today

Hello
Not so long ago, Crafty Individuals released new stamps, amongst them  CI-468., which can be used to stamp a block of various sentiments/words, useful for creating speedy backgrounds but you can also zoom into particular sentiments to make them the focal of your project.  That’s what I decided to do for this heart.
blogheartcilynne
The heart itself is ceramic, lovely and smooth but for someone who likes texture, it had to get the rusty, dusty treatment!
Live for Today was stamped onto fabric scrap which had previously been stained.

Layered onto corrugated cardboard heightens the textural elements with scraps of beautiful re-cycled waste silk sari ribbon.  I didn’t stain the sari ribbon, it is a beautiful oxblood colour.

Layered beneath the sentiment are three Bohemian Jewels.  They are from RELICS & ARTIFACTS and were just the perfect something to add.  They are available in various colours, you can view them HERE.

RELICS & ARTIFACTS Dresden Trim is what I edged the heart with, of course, also giving this the rusty treatment.  You can view the full range of Dresden Trim HERE.
