Courage @ That’s Crafty!

Hello
On Sunday, I shared my latest D.T. project for That’s Crafty!.
In preparation of a move, I found myself in the middle of making those tough decisions, at least, tough for a crafter (!) what to keep, what to trash and what to donate. There was many times when my hands would reach into the rubbish bag, only to convince myself that I could find a use for the item! That said, there was also too much that I had to say goodbye to.
This week’s project was born from that, me pulling out a piece of cardstock stained many moons ago, to finally use on a project.
A wee detail from the project, with instructions, supplies and several photos, which can be seen HERE.

Be Brave (Somerset Apprentice)

Hello
When That’s Crafty! released their Uprights, I knew I had found a substrate I would return to time and again, especially with the various designs and available in Dinky size.
This project appears in Stampington & Co’s Somerset Apprentice, Spring 2018.
The stamps, PaperArtsy EEA feature on this assemblage.
In the intro, for the feature, I give my thoughts behind this assemblage. I also wanted to capture the essence of torn and tattered,
layering the stamped focal, with the ragged edges, as though they might flutter off.trying to capture that there can be strength within what appears fragile. More tattered elements: painted re-cycled corrugated cardboard, Infusions scrap of mop-up kitchen paper, stamped scraps.Resting on the base of the Dinky Upright, a piece of driftwood (from Dorthe!) which I stamped onto.Thank you for your lovely visit today.

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.
