Hanging Around

Hi everyone, kids back at school, husband back at work, what better than to have a photo 'wall hanging' to see them all.....................anyone would think that I missed them!

For this project I cut some frames out of chipboard using a die cutting machine, mine being a cuttlebug, I also cut out the same amount of frames in acetate. The chipboard frames are painted in a black acrylic paint and then overlaid with the acetate. Before overlaying, I used a lovely frame stamp from sugar and spice and stamped on the acetate using stazon cotton white.

The stamps used in this project are called fancy flourishes and also contain some fab corner stamps.

I covered the back of the frames in a black and white paper continuing the theme. I also added an extra solid frame at the top of the 'wall hanging', and by writing on it made it personal to me.

Bye for now and happy crafting!

There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
