Seeking Shrooms: A Panel @ That’s Crafty

Hello
It has been a busy week for That’s Crafty with new stamp releases from Donna, Melina and Fliss and also release of new substrates which are called Chunkies available in various sizes plus the addition of Crackle Gel.
I received the Doodles Shrooms to play with and made this project.
The project with details can be viewed HERE.
If you are in the U.K. or some areas of Continental Europe, then you might still be battling the harsh weather.  Hope you are staying cosy and safe.

A Sense of Time: A Handmade Book/Journal @ PaperArtsy Topic #3 Watercolours

Hello
I am thrilled, this evening, to be appearing over at the PaperArtsy Blog, with a project for their Topic #3 Watercolours.
My project became a bit of a labour of love, a project which I enjoyed from the moments of painting re-cycled/found papers, all the way through to the assembling/binding of the book.
This is only a very small peek at it.  I am trying to organise a wee video to share, as it would be an easier way to show the book and the various pages but for the moment, if you would like to view more of my project, inspiration, etc, then please visit HERE and of course, there are the others who have gone before me, who have already shared their Watercolour projects at the PaperArtsy blog.

Have a lovely evening.

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!!!

Delicate Wings (@ That’s Crafty)

Hello
Apologies for taking so long before wishing A Happy New Year.  Here’s to 2018 being a year where it brings you wonderful times and opportunities and of course, an abundance of creativity!
Today is my first 2018 post for That’s Crafty, at the shiny new Blog, it is looking so fresh over there.  I am sharing a project featuring quite a few That’s Crafty’s own products, they are continually releasing fabulous new products which I genuinely want to craft with, not through D.T. loyalty but because I enjoy reaching for the products.

If you would like to view the project and details, then please, click HERE.
If you are a customer of That’s Crafty who enjoys creating with their own product range, then you might be interested in joining the Facebook page, That’s Crafty Creatives.  where we encourage you to share your art with us.
I am aiming for my Blog to be more active once more, it has been sadly neglected by me, as has keeping in contact with all your amazing Blogs.  I truly miss this aspect of my creative life and hope to turn it around but it might take a little bit of time and episodes of me not being so active.
Thank you always for your words of support and encouragement and loyalty.
Wishes
Lynne
