I Believe (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello
I thought I would share a collection of cards which appear in the July/Aug/Sept issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
The cards were inspired by beautiful Artist paper (which appeared in a Somerset Studio) designed by Rachel Emilie Jackson, I’ve no doubt that many of you will recognise her name, an inspirational artist.  I kept that Artist paper safe until last year, when I decided to stop saving items “for a rainy day”.
Imagine my joy when I made one collection and it appeared in The Stampers’ Sampler and another collection submitted and published in Somerset Life (will share another time).
The Stampers’ Sampler focuses on stamping so I added touches of stamping to each card.  I wanted the overall appearance to be one where my backgrounds, with Frescos, would blend with the Artist paper, fortunately, Rachel’s palette is one that I am drawn to and the chalky appearance of the Frescos worked a treat with the quality of the Artist paper.

The cards are quite small in dimension, this was dictated by the Artist paper, in me selecting as many elements from the paper as possible, so that I could make as many cards as possible.

The  Frescos, the colours and chalky texture allowed me to carry the paint onto the Artist paper and integrated so well with the Artist paper.

This was my favourite colour palette, soft blue with the warm buff, peachy tone.

Embellishments were kept to a minimum, a vintage button and the tiniest scraps of crochet lace or jute ribbon

What do you believe in?
Whatever it is, I hope you have it in abundance in your life.

Learning To Fly

Hello
Sunday morning roles around once more and that signals my DT post for That’s Crafty and sharing a sneaky peek of it with complete project on view HERE.
blogimage3septemberThis week, as with most weeks, my project features some of my very favourite products, many of them from That’s Crafty’s own product range: shrine, greyboard wings and acrylic paint.  Those wings are such beauty, they are from the large wings greyboard sheet which can be bought as an individual sheet or as a set alongside smaller wings and large and small feathers.  It’s clever of That’s Crafty to offer different options for purchasing their greyboard embellishments.
Have a lovely day whether you are managing to grasp the last days of summer or heading straight into Autumn, the scenario where I stay.

Art Isn’t Black & White: Red Lead Art House Kit (@ Somerset Life)

Hello
In the Apr/May/June issue of Somerset Life, one of the articles I have, is centred around a Red Lead art house, as an Art Kit idea.  Red Lead sell a few different styles, the same shape with slight variations in the items included, etc.  The Art Houses could form pencil/pen/paintbrush storage,   a home for a pretty plant or something completely different, like an art kit. There are no rules!
I’ve no idea why I don’t have more photos of the actual house.  The sides were stencilled, with Red Lead stencils.  For the front, the kit already has the “windows”.  I layered the same Red Lead collage image behind each window.  The thought behind the repetition of the image is the many sides of artists.

I focused on black and white embellishments to include in the art kit,

ribbons, buttons, clips, fabric and twine and the washi ribbon attached to the wooden spool.

The Frescos used to paint the Art House also appear on the cover of the mini watercolour paper pad.  Darkroom Door Word Blocks are great favourites of mine, this is the Creativity Word Block which is about the best one you could ever have in your stash.

Stamped labels which are Red Lead stamps, were attached to wee bundles of papers such as tissue, Red Lead collage images, etc.

When I packed the Art House Kit, it was fun, finding ways to including/attach as many items as possible. Suspending and attaching items upon items.

This was the first time I had submitted an Art Kit to Somerset Life, it was great fun and to have it published, the cherry on the cake especially as, since first reading Somerset Life, Art Kits were always something I liked to spend time pouring over the photographs.
Thank you so much for your visit.
