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

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
