My Story, I Will Journal (Part II)

Hello
Over at the That’s Crafty blog, I am sharing the second half of the journal sample made for when That’s Crafty had a show on HOCHANDA.
A peek at some of the pages with all the photographs, supplies and instructions, appearing HERE.

This journal was one of my most special projects made, so far, this year. I am already looking forward to working on another journal and will definitely, at some time, take the step of actually journaling, as that will be a huge step for me.
This journal was certainly made all the more special for featuring my Affirmations.
Thank you so much for your visit today.

My Story, I Will Journal (Part I)

Hello
This week, over at the That’s Crafty blog, I am sharing the journal which I made as a recent sample for That’s Crafty’s HOCHANDA shows.
This was a special project to work on, the first time I have worked on a completed journal and my first project featuring my stamps, Lynne’s Affirmations which have been produced by That’s Crafty.

It is a photo heavy blog post HERE and I also share the process for creating this journal and what inspired the stamps.

We have had enquiries from residents of the U.S.A. asking about shipping costs for the stamps to the U.S.  Please, email That’s Crafty with your enquiries or contact me and I contact Laura Holland on your behalf.  The shipping costs noted on the site are not reflective of the true shipping costs of the stamps to the U.S.A.
Many thanks for your time.

Hello
Sharing another sneaky peek of one of my journal pages, a completed journal was made as a sample for That’s Crafty’s HOCHANDA appearances on Friday 17th March @ 7 am and 11 am. The actual blank journals will be available for purchase along with new stencils and acrylic shapes, plus some other new products.
All my journal pages are double spreads and I will eventually be sharing them as That’s Crafty DT posts but for the moment, a peek at another of the pages.
The stamps can be seen HERE!

Her Brave Heart (Somerset Studio)

Hello Everyone
Six months ago, or thereabouts, Somerset Studio announced their annual Colour Challenge Call, which was to be the colour lilac.  Initially had no intention of answering the call for a few reasons:- I rarely submit to Somerset Studio, I have only ever submitted to one of their Colour Challenge Calls which was for Aubergine (yes, I was published) and I am not exactly partial to lilac.  However,  I found myself reading the details time and again and before I knew it, I had decided to have a go, I had nothing to lose and if anything I had challenged myself to create with this colour.
I set to work on an art journal page using what were for me at that time, newish stamps (DT stamps I had received from That’s Crafty), Dina Wakley’s All The Gals.herbraveheartlynnemoncrieffonePaints were applied onto the watercolour paper panel after I had adhered various items to create a base layer of texture.

A fragment of seam binding was stained to co-ordinate with the panel.

To have both submissions published, well it was more than I could have ever hoped for.
Many thanks for your time in visiting this post because I always appreciate your visits.
