WHY GLITTER.....

When you can Emboss...
Here I've taken a 20" x 7" canvas, randomly put Versamark over it and sprinkled WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder on, then heat set. Then painstakingly punch out a gazillion butterflies, or ask a very dear friend to help you :) :), I randomly embossed some of the butterflies as well, then attach to 3 blank cardstock hearts, and attach to the canvas. It's still not finished, as I'm searching for a sentiment to place along the bottom. I'll think of one "one day" !!!
Why Emboss instead of glitter....you may well ask...Simple really, once the powder is heat set you're not going to get any irritating bits of glitter falling off. Perfect !!!

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…
