This week on the Paper Artsy blog, Michelle Webb has been back with some wonderful inspiration. Wish I could have met up with her when I was in Stockton the other week. Maybe next time.
Today I've made a folk heart for the Paper Artsy blog challenge, using Fresco Finish paints with a crackle layer in between and then a selection of their gorgeous vintage sewing related stamps, mainly from the Hot Picks range I think. When I gave Petra back all her stamps last week which she had kindly lent to me for some weeks, I stamped some up on tissue paper (I'm not daft!) so this is a collage of those images. I added some chipboard die cut buttons and a scissor charm for a bit of dimension. Petra and I are going to Ally Pally next Sunday and I am so excited that there are going to be some new Lynne Perella releases! I am hoping to buy a set I can lend to Petra to return the favours!
Leandra has been saying on the Paper Artsy blog that she is at the scrap show in Paris this week! Jealous? Us? No, because we went to the newly relocated Craft Barn yesterday and saw the lovely Helen Chilton demo-ing the new Sara Naumann, Lin Brown, and JoFY stamps from Paper Artsy, and had a great chat with her. This is what she was doing, and this is what she very kindly gave to me:-
I bought some more Fresco Finish colours (I know, how odd), and some wood and papier mache items to decorate. I also met Neil Walker for the first time and watched him demo - Hello Neil! And Petra and I have booked in for an Andy Skinner workshop, which is my birthday present from Col.
Love that project Lucy and it looks like you have been having a great time at workshops. Love the piece from Helen too.ReplyDelete

I love your collaged heart Lucy.ReplyDelete
Which Andy Skinner workshop are you going to - I'm booked in for his canvas workshop on 19th May.
Another gorgeous creation, love the sewing theme and the vintage whites. xxReplyDelete
Very fine, Lucy--you always make pretty things--and it fascinates me that you know Petra in REAL life, not sure why, maybe because you all are my "imaginary" friends. (That's what my children call all my bloggy buddies!)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, gorgeous shabby chic heart - I love the stamping! Guess having the images pre-stamped on tissue paper means you get to play with positioning...ReplyDelete
Lovely make from Helen, sounds like you had fun at the Craft Barn. Hope you have a great time at Ally Pally too - can't wait to see those new LPs!
Thank you for your visit on my blog.ReplyDelete
I was lucky enough to be in Paris at the scrap show and I made two workshops with Leandra. She's fantastic girl, and I adored using all her products.
I bought many thing ( treasure gold, Fresco finish colours, new stamps etc....)
