Find Yourself In Nature (The Stampers’ Sampler)

In the Apr/May/June 2017 issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, one of my features is the collection of cards I am sharing in this post, which came about after some play-time with Prima Christine Adolph rub-ons, after receiving some through my DT role with That’s Crafty .
My first introduction to the artist was via Stampington & Co, from the pages of their magazines and subsequently, when I got my hands on some of the art stamps (available from Stampington).  I paired each selected rub-on with a sentiment from various Darkroom Door Word Blocks.
Word Blocks are amongst my most favourite Darkroom Door stamps, especially Wellbeing and Wilderness.  If, like me, you love the addition of words on your projects, then the Word Blocks are musts.
Each card is approx 4″ x 2.5″.
When I was working on this collection, the gentleness of the rub-ons helped with my word selection.  Overall, I wanted a collection of cards which capture the serenity in nature.  Nature shares its many lessons with us and I wanted each card to be a moment to pause and to consider the message from Mother Nature.  Whether the freedom within the wings of a butterfly or the bliss of a new blossom or the stillness within nature.
Although they are small in stature, this does not in any way hinder the inclusion of layers of fragments.
Everything was stained with PaperArtsy Infusions, they provide that fluid,
delicately coloured background on watercolour paper and stain all the elements.
If you have used the Christine Adolph Rub-Ons, you will know that they vary in size within each pack.  Cards such as these are perfect for the smaller sized rub-ons.
To add interest to the backgrounds, I stamped Christine Adolph stamps, Trims  and Collage Cube
which helped bring a textural effect by stamping randomly.  I also stamped onto some of the fragments of Infusions stained found papers and textiles,
such as this tiny piece here, layered onto Infusions stained book page.
The foil,
catches the light beautifully!

Tangled Butterfly Dreams

Hello Everyone
For my DT sample at That’s Crafty, I’ve once again found myself dipping into PaperArtsy’s Infusions.  The photograph does not do justice to the richness of the Infusions I worked with, the colours reminding me of berries:- blueberries and dark cherries.
