Workshop Dates plus weekends! And a pattern overload photo frenzy!!
Hello again... where does the time go?
Firstly, I'm running a few workshop sessions again starting with March and April and the dates can be found over on my Workshop Blog here if you are interested in taking part in what always proves to be a really enjoyable few hours creating.
Meanwhile, back on this blog I have a number of pieces to share...
I have a feeling that pattern clash/overload/mix and match is the next up and coming craze- well thats my story and I'm sticking to it...it has nothing to do (honest *cough*) with the fact I need to use up some of this enormous back log of pre patterned paper filling up the so called craft mountain that used to be a walk in sit down room. At the moment I have to put my hand around the door and grab what I can.
It turns out though I REALLY REALLY enjoyed making these and will be doing some more as not only are they using up my scraps, but are, I feel, commercial enough to actually give out as cards to REAL 'NORMAL' PEOPLE!!!
HAHA, you know what I mean, I'm sure.
They are illustrating images from the wonderful Janet Klein, one of the stamp artists for Stampotique. Janet's latest range is based on Alice in Wonderland, something I have a penchant for (ooo 'ark at me going all French), which can be found half way down this page linked here.
As you can see below, I added more pattern on the insides!!
And got out the coloured pencils for the stamped images.
Happy Unbirthday is from my range at Stampotique, but goes well with Janet's range don't you think?
I popped the Mad Hatter into a heart shaped 'flower' and added some words. Just sitting here thinking of you is also from Stampotique.
And finally, my favourite (if we can have faves)...I really enjoyed making this one inparticular, it fell into place.
Who can resist Chessy's grin!!
Well this post took an aaaaaaaage to set up. A cuppa is well and truly needed. Hope you liked it. See ya soon xx And if you are local to me please check out my workshops.
Hi..I'm 48, married with two sons, living happily in a small village on the southcoast of England.
I enjoy making things with a varied selection of inks, paints and stamps.
I hope you enjoy your visit and that maybe what I show here occassionally inspires you somehow, (but please add your own personal twists and touches, don't directly copy mine- wheres the fun in that?).
If ever I've given you any inspiration I'd love to see! Let me know please! :0)
Thankyou for visiting.
