PaperArtsy ESN Launch Night: “Wings”

Hello
Miriam Grazier and myself were selected as wingmen to Sara Naumann for her latest launch of stamps and stencils for PaperArtsy.
You cannot imagine the thrill it was for me, my second time as a wingman for Sara, I am genuinely a fan of her stamps, they are some of my most inked up stamps.  What heightened the thrill, I did not know the stamp or stencil designs until they were delivered, I was not disappointed.  They are slightly more collage in style than previous collections from Sara but they shine through as being Sara’s stamps, especially the words that are scattered throughout both sets.
I worked with ESN22 which, along with the other new stamp set and stencils, is available from That’s Crafty.
This is only a sneaky peek, with the full project available to view over at the PaperArtsy blog.   Thursday had Miriam share her fabulous project with Sara sharing her beautiful collaged card shared with us on Wednesday evening.
bloglaunchnightlynne With That’s Crafty being a stockist of the majority of PaperArtsy products, I sneaked in some That’s Crafty products, include the fabulous, new feather greyboards, which were launched earlier today. It’s been a busy day! I also used two That’s Crafty MDF substrates.
Thank you for your visit.

Courage

Hello Everyone
PaperArtsy Everything Art stamps have been a bit of a revelation for me.  Like many of you, of course I was drawn to them but never imagined I would ink them up as often as I have been doing. The paint tube with the word courage, it seemed appropriate to include it in this project for my first post of the New Year for That’s Crafty.
When I made this, I never gave thought to the fact that it was this week that Wanderlust 2017 kicked off !
What courage will you seek in 2017 with your art?blog8janlynnem

Thank you so much for your visit.

Winter Wonderland … A Resounding Silence (Somerset Studio Gallery)

Hello
Appearing in Somerset Studio Gallery is such a wonderful way to end the year. This assemblage is another piece I am lucky enough to have published as a Spotlight, in this issue.
Tree – Crafty Individuals CI-450
Sentiment – PaperArtsy ESN
Dinky Stencil – That’s Crafty Snowflake Background
I was trying to convey peace, stillness, on a winter day with the low winter sun dancing on the frosted landscape, the only sound the crunch underfoot on the snow impacted ground.ssglynnemcipanelTo heighten the natural and organic feel to the panel, the tree was stamped onto some mop up/under paper which does result in a less than perfect stamped impression but for this, it was exactly what I was aiming for.
When I first started to stamp, I would have thought a less than perfect stamped impression was good for only one thing, being tossed into the rubbish bin but now, there is great freedom and sense of satisfaction when a perfectly imperfect impression actually adds more to a project.ssglynnemcitwoThat’s Crafty greyboard snowflakes, oh I just love them.  The snowflake brings the eye towards the textural layers.
With the colour palette silvery white with mere hints of gold, this representing the golden glow of the winter sun.ssglynnecithreeThank you to anyone who takes the time to visit, especially at this time of the year when there is great demands on your time….so Thank You!

Winter Chill (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello
Sharing cards made for The Stampers’ Sampler Holiday Happenings Challenge Call.
The stamps are PaperArtsy ESN, designed by Sara Naumann. They are such well thought out stamp sets, with focal images, text/script and smaller elements.  I stamped up sets ESN17 and 18.  Although they appear in the Holiday Happenings challenge results, they are not necessarily for Christmas, the cards could be for winter birthdays, simply ink up different sentiments.
The colours were difficult to photograph, you cannot see the metallic paint which was blended onto the backgrounds.  It is all very subtle, I wanted an almost watercolour effect, aiming for a frosty, wintry appearance with a hint of the delicate.fivetrialA That’s Crafty greyboard snowflake is layered with a paperflower painted to co-ordinate with a rhinestone adding a hint of sparkle and just a wee dash of glamour!sixpasamplerlynne
You probably know by now that I love to add scraps!  This little piece was literally a scrap piece lying around.
