My Little Pretties (@ Somerset Life)

Hello
I have no idea where time is disappearing to!
Here I am sharing items which appear in an Oct/Nov/Dec issue of Somerset Life !!!
Somerset Life has been a favourite Stampington & Co title for the longest time,  a reader long, long before I first submitted, fulfilling an area in my creative life, as a reader and now someone who has submitted/published a few times, that is beautifully unique, it truly captures creative living.
I cannot even remember when I submitted this collection of pretties, possibly one year ago, in answer to a Tag challenge call.
As happens more often than not with me, they came about by chance.  I found myself with excess Gesso, grabbed some tags and swiped the Gesso onto them.  When I bundled them up, I happened to gather them along with some pink/red lace.  Suddenly, from that action, I had the idea of creating pretty tag ladies.  Those are moments that  make me happy LOL.
In that moment I had no doubt I would be inking up Character Constructions stamps.

She is one of my absolute, all time favourite Character Constructions stamps, I never tire of her.  It was wonderful to see her available on the That’s Crafty site.  You can find her HERE.

All stamping is done directly onto the tag, zero fussy cutting on this project! This was all about the fun of adding the wee touches, such as the fabric formed into a simple bow for her hair.
cctagtwodetailtwolynnemoncrieff
They were presented as a bundle, tied with torn fabric that I had used on the tags, that is one of the reasons I kept to a limited colour palette, making them more attractive when viewed as a collective bundle.

It was fun to adorn her hair with roses cut from lace rose trim.

The wee birdie sings sweetly to her.

A sentiment adorns the rear of each tag with a fragment of fabric.

Catherine Moore’s Character Constructions stamps allow me to dip into pretty with a touch of whimsy and can be light relief from when I have been immersed in my dreich and drippy (!) projects LOL.
Thank you so much for your visit to this post.  I continue to read through all the comments you generously leave for me to read.

Rooted To The Earth

Hello
Although I am no longer on the Crafty Individuals team, I still have samples made for one of their appearances on HOCHANDA.  At the time, we were asked to work with specific stamps, those that would be available via HOCHANDA.  Some of the stamps selected were tree designs.
Crafty Individuals have some of the most beautiful tree stamps available. If you do a search for trees, you will also see greeting cards, images and of course stamps or click HERE.
This is a #10 tag

Most often, when I am working with Infusions, I will stain a whole bundle of items and then store them.  Now, I’d like to present the image that they are stored in colour ways and textiles are separate from papers but please, erase that image from your brain, it is a hotpotch of Infusions goodness all packed into one bag!

Infusions appear on so many elements on this tag, it would easier to eliminate that which hasn’t been stained, if there is anything.

This tag is smaller than the first sample, a regular shipping tag.  It was only ever regular shipping tags I would use, buying in bulk but I do like the variation of working on a larger surface which Ranger tags provide.  I don’t know why, it seems impossible for me to source outsize shipping tags in the U.K., other than those from a craft company.

The “scribbles” are journaling, of sorts.  I am enjoying, now and then, picking up a pen, allowing words to free flow.  I first tried this many moons ago when reading, for the first time, Julia Cameron.
It might seem strange but I read her books, it probably was in the 90s, when I was not leading a creative life, I did dabble in various hobbies, dipping in and out of some with cross-stitching and tapestry as the constants but it didn’t resemble the creative life I have now.
I was always very precise with my penmanship and I found that not only was it freeing, getting thoughts onto paper without filtering or editing and also, it was freeing in the sense that I was not being deliberate with my handwriting.  Little did I know at the time, the value of this for me in the here and now and although I do struggle with visible journaling, I realise that writing that has the appearance of a chicken having scratched its way across the project, is of benefit, as no one can read my thoughts.

Thank you for your visit and if you are in the U.K., have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.
