JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT........

You'd forgotten a technique, you read a mag and it all comes flooding back.....That's why we tell people in the shop, one of the most important purchases you'll make is a GOOD magazine and if you're like me you'll keep it forever !!!
So this technique involved me getting out my trusty Scribble Flowers Stamp, it's out of production now, but I may just re-think that...I still LOVE it. Anyhoo's, all you do is turn the stamp over and ink up the solid side and stamp, then when you've done that in your choice of colours, turn the stamp back to the correct way and stamp onto the backgrounds....This works so well for this type of stamp. The leaves were from my "leaves" set, now there's a surprise!!! No they're not polka dot, but I wanted them to be so I just dotted with a pen. I loved making this card so much I made a few...
I know I was lazy, I should have changed the colours, I can see that now, but I'm pretty much addicted to blue's and greens at the mo. Anyway, I'm well chuffed with myself as I actually have cards ready to send.....All I need now is someone to send them to LOL !!!!

Now who would have thunk...it makes sense to turn the stamp over.

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
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


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

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…
