Nature’s Daydreams

Hello
This Sunday, over at the That’s Crafty Blog, I am sharing this project.  The substrate is a That’s Crafty mdf tag, which I haven’t used for a while and any time I do work with one, always reminds me how fabulous a substrate they are.
When I first spied the new PaperArtsy Eclectica ELB (Lin Brown), I knew they would be stamps I would reach for time and again.  Actually this project is some of my favourite things – That’s Crafty substrate, Infusions, stamping onto fabric, utilising scraps, texture.  onebloglynnem

Many thanks for your visit, especially when it is only 24hrs since I last posted here.

She Looks Into Your Soul

Hello
Recently, for That’s Crafty blog posts, I have been sharing many Uprights so I thought I would dip into their earlier substrates and decided to work with one of the white/greyboard hearts, which were, along with the MDF hearts, great favourites of mine so long overdue to have a play again.
The focal is one of the beautiful new PaperArtsy Eclectica LPC stamps.

Many thanks for your visit and also, thank you to my lovely friend Dorthe because she gifted to me that pretty sheer fabric with floral details.

To Dare

Hello
Well, today’s post is in sharp contrast to the ice cream colours of the paper dolls I shared this past week, today we are firmly in distressed, aged, heavy on the texture type of mode!
This is a That’s Crafty Arch Upright which was made as a sample for one of their recent HOCHANDA shows.  The regularity of me sharing Uprights is testament to how much I love to work with them.  This is a full size Upright which is an incredibly generous size.

I Believe In Courage

Hello Everyone
I never seem to tire of PaperArtsy’s Lynne Perrella designed stamps.
This week for my That’s Crafty post, I worked on a Dinky Upright (which I love) and incorporated fragments of mop up/under papers. Other than the Upright, this assemblage comprises scraps, even the tangle of fibres!

All details and more photographs, can be viewed HERE.
If you are a fan of PaperArtsy and in particular the Lynne Perrella designed collections, then you might want to know that it will not be too long a wait before new stamps are released!
Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to stop by.

Something Wicked (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello!
There is a slightly unsettling, sinister feel to the trio of cards I am sharing in this post.  I appreciate that the cards might cause offence to anyone who does not agree with Halloween due to religious belief, I certainly don’t want to be upsetting anyone.
They were submitted to The Stampers’ Sampler for their annual Frightful & Delightful challenge call and published as a feature in the Jul/Aug/Sept issue.
I am not someone who embraces the macabre, dark side of Halloween but I was inspired by the Oxford Impressions stamps. Oxford Impressions excel at Halloween (and Christmas) with stamp sets for all Halloween tastes from Masquerade to Too Cute to Spook style stamps, Danse Macabre and Poe inspired. If you want to have a look, in the U.K. That’s Crafty stock several Oxford Impressions sets.wickedonelynnemA hint of gold runs through my background with splatters of iron oxide paint.wickedthreelynnemMore stained items. In this photo you can see that the girl was stamped onto a tag.  I wanted the tag to blend into the overall background but at the same time, it brings another layer to the card.

fourlynnemI always appreciate visits at any time but understand that the cards here are darker to my usual style.  I will be sharing another Halloween related post very soon but not nearly as dark as this!

Remembering 9/11

Hello
Some weeks ago, I was approached by Christine Rice Cooper to participate in an anthology of reflections on 9/11, memories of that day and any significance to our lives and art.havefaithlynnemoncriefffeatherThe unfolding of what would become known as 9/11, can be played in my mind as though watching a film. Geographically, the distance is 3,000 + miles away but the impact of the horror, I doubt if I could have been more shocked if it had happened within this island I live on. Emotions transcend geographical boundaries, this was a disaster which resonated with us on a human level, of fear, of confusion, of grief and even, anger.
My recollections of that day and those of so many others, can be viewed HERE.
Many thanks to Chris Rice Cooper for having me be a small part of this anthology.
Wishes
Lynne
