Sharing another sample made for Crafty Individuals (for HOCHANDA show).
This sample, which is a substrate of a That’s Crafty white/greyboard panel, sees me using one of Crafty Individuals new stamps,CI-460
The same trees were stamped onto Infusions stained book pages twice, tearing into panels, with a scrap piece of stained book text in the centre, with that lovely Whispers in the Wind stamp from CI-209.
That lovely piece of stylised leaf applique is a piece cut from beautiful lace panel gifted to me by my friend Sharon. I stained it with Infusions. The other textiles were also stained, they look as though it could be Rusty Car they were stained with.
A scribbled, doodled border around the book page panel.
Book pages have been a constant for me, really since I started stamping. Even with this detailed stamp, the text peeks through and I so love the extra layer that brings to a project.
Literally, a scrap of corrugated cardboard – no scrappy piece is safe from my grasp!
I still have a few more of samples made for Crafty Individuals HOCHANDA show and will share them over the coming weeks.
Thank you, again, for your time visiting here.

I am sure you can relate, I do not like anything going to waste, so when I had some of the frame elements, left over from creating shrine samples for That’s Crafty, I laid them aside knowing I could continue the fun later.
With That’s Crafty now re-stocking, selected Character Constructions stamps, I thought it would be fun to play with some of the Paris Flea stamps and give this art girl a cosy home. I’ve played with Paris Flea many times since receiving the collection last year, it is fun to mix ‘n’ match and bring life to the paper dolls with your imagination.
All details of this project can be seen HERE, including specific stamps and how I formed the paper doll element. I also sneaked in one of my Affirmations! I still have more to write about the Affirmations but have to say, heartfelt thanks for the reaction, I never imagined I would ever have stamps and then to have them so warmly received, it has been overwhelming.

This evening, I am sharing a post over at PaperArtsy.
It is wonderful to be back there, where I am sharing a project relating to Topic #4 Doors, Windows and Architecture. All the details, the inspiration can be seen in the post, HERE.
This wasn’t the easiest of projects to photograph!

To start this new week I thought I’d share something which I made last year, submitted to Somerset Studio’s colour challenge, the colour they stipulated was Olive. I was so thrilled to see this published in Somerset Studio Jan/Feb 2017.
Although I also submitted other projects, this was the first project made because I knew I wanted to use the stunning Character Constructions stamp, Inner Child No. 7 , a great favourite of mine.
Is she a friend to the birds, who are content with her sitting amongst them, or is it possible that she is one of them. Some say she has the voice of the sweetest nightingale.
(That’s Crafty is stocking a selected range but Laura Holland is willing to accept any enquiries for Character Constructions stamps which do not appear on the That’s Crafty website. If you are interested in placing a Special Order, then feel free to contact Laura)
A canvas board was the main substrate for this piece, with That’s Crafty MDF hearts.
The Character Constructions stamp is the focal, stamped onto a piece of leftover paper, painted with PaperArtsy Fresco and one of their glazes providing a sheen. You can just about see the sentiment “she hath wings”, a beautiful stamp, available from Redlead Paperworks.
All of those branches are fussy cut, yes, my hands were not so happy with me! You can find this branch on Character Constructions Queen of Tarts Plate 1
I allowed them to overhang, to give them impression that she really is nestled in the branches of the tree.
In all honesty, I am not sure I achieved the faux bark effect which I was aiming for on the That’s Crafty mdf hearts. Each has a stamped egg layered onto it, the stamped image has a thin layer of ICE Resin.
Scraps of resin paper also appear layered behind the heart and again on this piece of drifwood, layered with the Home Sweet Nest sentiment. Such a sweet sentiment from Character Constructions.
Thank you for your visit. I am trying to draft as many posts as possible, there seems to be so much catching-up to do!

This is the front cover of the journal sample made for That’s Crafty’s shows for HOCHANDA. It is an early start for Neil Burley who will be demoing That’s Crafty products at 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
The journal, featuring Lynne’s Affirmations stamps, stencil and acrylic shape, will be available for purchase on HOCHANDA. They are available now, HERE. This journal size is 6″x6″ with tabs.
Thank you so much for your visits and your kind words about the sneaky peeks I’ve shared. It seemed such a big step to work on this journal and yet I enjoyed every minute of it and my regret is that time wasn’t on my side to have actually added some journaling which will be a huge step for me but one I am prepared to now challenge myself with.
I also appreciate that recent posts have been very much focused on new product launches and so I am even more grateful for your visits because hard sells can sometimes be too much!!!

Sharing another sneaky peek of one of my journal pages, a completed journal was made as a sample for That’s Crafty’s HOCHANDA appearances on Friday 17th March @ 7 am and 11 am. The actual blank journals will be available for purchase along with new stencils and acrylic shapes, plus some other new products.
All my journal pages are double spreads and I will eventually be sharing them as That’s Crafty DT posts but for the moment, a peek at another of the pages.
The stamps can be seen HERE!
Thank you for popping over to take a peek.
