Art Girl

Hello
I am sure you can relate, I do not like anything going to waste, so when I had some of the frame elements, left over from creating shrine samples for That’s Crafty, I laid them aside knowing I could continue the fun later.
With That’s Crafty now re-stocking, selected Character Constructions stamps, I thought it would be fun to play with some of the Paris Flea stamps and give this art girl a cosy home.  I’ve played with Paris Flea many times since receiving the collection last year, it is fun to mix ‘n’ match and bring life to the paper dolls with your imagination.

All details of this project can be seen HERE, including specific stamps and how I formed the paper doll element.  I also sneaked in one of my Affirmations!  I still have more to write about the Affirmations but have to say, heartfelt thanks for the reaction, I never imagined I would ever have stamps and then to have them so warmly received, it has been overwhelming.

Art House (new product launch @ That’s Crafty)

Hello
That’s Crafty are launching new products at Stitches and I was lucky enough to have the new items to play with, to create samples.
Laura suggested I share the samples as DT projects so I decided to share the first one I made.  Foolishly, I forgot to take dimensions but this is large!  If you own the PaperArtsy EEA alphabet set, it will give you an idea of the proportions of the stamping against the frame of the shrine.
You might believe I would be enthusiastic about the shrines because I am on the That’s Crafty DT and feel obligated to be positive, that is not the case.
The shrines will be available in different sizes so if you wanted a statement piece, then the large shrines will be perfect or you might prefer a cluster of smaller shrines – variety and choice can only be a good thing!  The actual shrines are easy to assemble, no special items required other than your favourite, reliable adhesive (I use Regular Matt Gel Medium). There is generous depth to the shrines, you can see I managed to prop a mini canvas with easel into the shadowbox.
Many new(ish) products appear on this shrine, the full list can be seen HERE.

Nature’s Daydreams

Hello
This Sunday, over at the That’s Crafty Blog, I am sharing this project.  The substrate is a That’s Crafty mdf tag, which I haven’t used for a while and any time I do work with one, always reminds me how fabulous a substrate they are.
When I first spied the new PaperArtsy Eclectica ELB (Lin Brown), I knew they would be stamps I would reach for time and again.  Actually this project is some of my favourite things – That’s Crafty substrate, Infusions, stamping onto fabric, utilising scraps, texture.  onebloglynnem

Many thanks for your visit, especially when it is only 24hrs since I last posted here.

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.
