The Ancient Woods

Hello
Today, over at the That’s Crafty blog, I found myself taking a gentle walk into The Ancient Woods where I stumbled across a cottage, where a Wise Woman spoke to me of her friends from nature who while away the hours of the day with her.

Nature Study (Somerset Studio)

Hello
This project is another article in the Jan/Feb issue of Somerset Studio, it was in answer to an art call for the colour Olive which isn’t a colour which I would normally reach for but I knew I had PaperArtsy olive Fresco so I had no excuse to dive in. It was packaging which inspired me, cardboard packaging from Amazon (I always have to battle with my conscience when I say their name!!!) which has almost a folder appearance to it.
folder
I wanted it to become a Nature Study portfolio with not only green to transform the cardboard packaging but also a Green ethos to the items I reached for throughout.

The folder opens to reveal a panel of tree bark, embellished with a piece of found paper, stamped and layered with a beautiful feather and for the right side, where a book or other item would normally be packaged, this is the area where the art panels are stored.
folderopen
The jute twine ties this element to close it,
inside
A cluster of stamped tags, it was probably walnut ink (I keep a large jar which I top up when required and so far, no sign of mould appearing) I used to stain the found paper/cardstock.  All of those stamps are from Character Constructions.  That is one of the many reasons I adore Character Constructions, not only for the stunning paper dolls stamps but there are also so many detail stamps included on the plates.

The rear which was stamped with a script stamp (PaperArtsy ESN) and a beautiful fern stamp).
folderear
Inside the portfolio there are four panels which are all substrates of birch tree bark which I have randomly painted. There are layers and layers and texture upon texture, all items from around the home and garden. Some items again stained with walnut ink and I was so pleased, without going out of my way, I discovered that piece of book text.
one
Tree bark, burlap, muslin, brown packing paper, cardboard paper and a wooden button/bead from a piece of clothing.
two
Loose fibres gives the impression of nesting material within the stamped nest, which was stamped onto birch tree bark
three
I peeled back a layer of the tree bark to place this stamped image of the nest behind it.
four
Panel Two which features another Red Lead bird stamp
five
which was stamped onto resin paper or maybe the ICE Resin was applied after stamping…I think I should have referred to the instructions in my article! I know he rests on a MDF heart from That’s Crafty.
Thank you to Dorthe for the driftwood and the sweet wee cone.

Within the folder, other than the two panels featuring birds, there were two other panels, featuring leaves.
seven
The leaves were stamped onto deli paper which had the PaperArtsy Freco paint, diluted and applied to create a textural appearance.
eight
Red Lead have an extensive range of nature themed stamps and they do some of the very best bird stamps you could ever hope to source.
I appreciate, this was a very long blog post with lots of photos so huge thanks if you managed to stay until the end!

She Wears Butterflies In Her Hair

Hello
Time for my That’s Crafty D.T. project which is a sample I made for their recent appearance on HOCHANDA.
That’s Crafty Art Shrines are one of my favourite items from their product range so it was great to see them being showcased on HOCHANDA. One of my new Affirmations stamps sets has “She Wears Butterflies In Her Hair” so I decided to have a wee bit of whimsical fun with That’s Crafty products with that Affirmation. Although it isn’t exactly an Affirmation, that term has been used very loosely for my sentiments, the message is one of hope and positvity.
