Craft Stamper - June
Yesssssssssssssss!! *happy daaaaaaaaance, happy daaaaaance*
So pleased to see my Mixed Media article book appearing on the front cover as the main feature in this months (June) Craft Stamper. I really enjoyed making this. Its one of those items you make that you cant help keep turning the weighty collaged pages over just incase you think it might need this or that. A book that grew and grew over a few days.
I notice in the preview it describes it as being a mini book ...its probably about A5 in size with a few chunky pages.
Here are a few sneak peeks :0) really wish I was able to show it all but its against magazine policy, so if you get the opportunity to buy a copy, please do as it looks another great issue.
It turned out to be a book that had an underlying sadness to it but created in really bright happy colours.
I used lots of different materials ranging from textiles to photographs I'd taken.
Art Journey- Stamping Contrast Article (SAME ISSUE!!)
I also took part in the Stamping Contrast Challenge for this issue which was using the Smile plate from Art Journey. Great fun as always. Having felt I'd used up all my 'wild colour allowance' for one month with the Mixed Media article, I went for the more calm and chilled out feel for the two pieces I made. Very simle. LOVED making these too. Very pleased with such a simple technique that came about by making a concerted effort for the work to be as simple as I could make it.
I couldnt have two collections of artwork more different from each other and thoroughly enjoyed making both.
I hope that if you get to see the magazine I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did making them.
(Art Journey also have a competition running for all those of you that have Art Journey stamps over on Louises blog)
Thanks for stopping by :0) xx
