PaperArtsy meets Heidi Swapp

You know when you just NEED one of them days....... Well today I got one of THEM days. And how lovely it was. I spent the whole day with the lovely Paula Poston making, making, making.

I found an old Moleskin book that I'd had for ages and had washi taped the front, so I ripped that off, that's the joy of washi :) :) and got to work.

My love of all things Paper Artsy at the moment was the inspiration and then any excuse to play with the Heidi Swapp Color Shine and I was on my way.....

I stepped right out of my comfort zone for this one, as I don't normally do MESSY and certainly not random, I'm a clean and simple girl at heart. But I had such fun, spritzing and painting and masking and stamping and .......
Well, I'll let you look for yourself......



This is the front of the book, I've stamped onto tissue paper, painted it, spritzed it and stuck it :)


These two pages were, spritzed, stencilled and stamped.


Here's a little close up.


And lastly, and this is my favourite page, inspired by Donna Downey, I sketched the bunting, stamped the flowers and grass and punched out some butterflies....... I still have lots of pages to fill, so this is just the beginning.
Now I need to wash my hands

ALL HAIL LEANDRA....

We've been so looking forward to this demo day and we would have loved to have Leandra there, but it's her birthday and well, you know, it wouldn't be fair.....
She has been soooooooo supportive, I can't thank her enough, I've just got back after setting things up ready for it, getting all our demos ready and then.......BAM !!!! We get a tweet from the queen herself to say she's coming along at 10am with all her demo gear.
So come along and see the master at work and join in with us when we sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to her.
It's people like her that make this industry an absolute pleasure to be part of
Join us from 10am
