Words of Positivity Ornaments (Somerset Life)

Hello
At the beginning of the year, in the Jan/Feb/March issue of Somerset Life, I had an article published, featuring some ornaments made with a message of positivity on each one. Two bundles of three ornaments per bundle with stamped sentiments all from Red Lead.  The actual ornaments are Relics & Artifacts Chandelier Pendants, That’s Crafty stock some of the designs.

I wanted a soft, pastel colour palette and for them to work as a group.  Of course, I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish chalk acrylics although the layer of ICE Resin does make the chalk effect redundant.

Simple touches to embellish,

such as rhinestones, freshwater potato pearls.

In the article I write about where such ornaments could be displayed

The second collection, again featuring Red Lead stamps…

I am such a fan of their Little Labels stamps, they always seem such a perfect choice no matter the project.

Dry brushing of the wire hanging enhances the shabby chic mood of the ornaments.

Thank You to Stampington & Co for publishing the ornaments and for Red Lead who provided the beautiful and inspirational stamps, as I continue to be an on-going Guest Designer role with them.
Thank You for your visit to this post.

Muse Journals (Greencraft)

Hello
This trio of journals were made in 2016, with one being made as a DT project for Darkroom Door.  I enjoyed making the journal so I set about making two more.
The resin paper journals article appears in the summer issue of Greencraft magazine.  Greencraft is focused on re-cycling, re-purposing, etc, a fabulous magazine from Stampington & Co.  The re-purposed elements on my journals were old book pages, transformed into resin paper and found packaging, which I stamped the Darkroom Door stamps onto.

I have to thank my lovely friend Dorthe as she gifted that lovely copper and ivory fabric to me and it has been something I have reached for time and again for projects, the colours and the textures are perfectly suited for me.

The details for the journals are all within the Greencraft article but I’m not giving anything away by saying that each journal features a Relics & Artifacts.  They seemed so suited to team up with the Darkroom Door stamps, particularly the Word Block stamp.

The found paper/card was made grungy before stamping.

I like how the hand appears to be reaching for a pencil.

This is a detail of the resin paper.  It is so addictive to make, in fact I really need to be making some more, must do so before winter sets in as I prefer as much ventilation as possible.
Thank you always for your visits. I feel distanced from on-line activity so when I do manage to up-date my blog and read your comments, it means a great deal to me.

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.
Wishes
Lynne
