These Wings Belong To Me

Hello
On Friday, amongst many new releases from That’s Crafty on HOCHANDA, four new Lynne’s Affirmations stamp sets were released.  For my That’s Crafty D.T. post, I am sharing one of the samples I made for HOCHANDA. The sentiment on this project is from one of my latest Affirmation stamp sets.

It’s In Your Heart, To Live For Today

Hello
Not so long ago, Crafty Individuals released new stamps, amongst them  CI-468., which can be used to stamp a block of various sentiments/words, useful for creating speedy backgrounds but you can also zoom into particular sentiments to make them the focal of your project.  That’s what I decided to do for this heart.

The heart itself is ceramic, lovely and smooth but for someone who likes texture, it had to get the rusty, dusty treatment!
Live for Today was stamped onto fabric scrap which had previously been stained.

Layered onto corrugated cardboard heightens the textural elements with scraps of beautiful re-cycled waste silk sari ribbon.  I didn’t stain the sari ribbon, it is a beautiful oxblood colour.

Layered beneath the sentiment are three Bohemian Jewels.  They are from RELICS & ARTIFACTS and were just the perfect something to add.  They are available in various colours, you can view them HERE.

RELICS & ARTIFACTS Dresden Trim is what I edged the heart with, of course, also giving this the rusty treatment.  You can view the full range of Dresden Trim HERE.

A Bloom of One’s Own (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
I have some catching-up to do with items I’d planned on sharing long before now, such as the panels in this post which feature in the Jan/Feb/Mar issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
At the time of creating the panels, JOFY stamps were still quite new to me. It was all because of this post, HERE at That’s Crafty that I continued to make some more.
Here are the other three panels.oneTouches of H20s catch the light beautifully and here and there, touches of mica flakes.  If I remember, I think I also used Golden medium which has beautiful gold mica flakes within it.twoCoils of rusty wire appear here and there on each panel.threeThis is one of my all time favourite labels from Redlead Paperworks, layered onto some rusty mesh which is also from Redlead.four
Grow A GardenoneAgain, on this panel, the JOFY stamps were highlighted with the H20s, working with limited colours (even though I have quite a stash of H20s!)twoI took no care with how I applied the H20s, working loosely.threeMorning DewoneThe backgrounds have little or no texture other than paint.  I might have added a touch of Grungepaste but on the whole, the texture on the background is purely Frescos.twoAnother label from yet another favourite Redlead labels set. I dip into their Label sets so often, they are such a lovely sized stamp to add a little sentiment to artwork.  fourI am thankful that Stampington & Co liked the panels enough to publish them. There are so many incredible stamp artists, vying for space within the pages of The Stampers’ Sampler, so it is always an honour to be published.
Many thanks for your visit to this post.
Wishes
Lynne
