Just so you know, Craft Stamper (UK) is out in the shops today, and if you grab yourself a copy you will see that I have an article in this months issue using Steampunk stamps by Chocolate Baroque and yummy Dylusions ink sprays.
I ALMOST chose a neutral/grungy colour scheme for this project but in the end I went for BRIGHTS! Here's a sneak peek... and look! There's even a bit of glitter woohoo!!
I loved using these funky Steampunk stamps, and of course I always love Dylusions ink sprays :-) So go and grab a copy, it's in the shops today, or you can get a copy *here*.
Yesterday saw me at the wonderful Art from the Heart teaching a workshop, using the *new* Stampotique stamps. Here they are, hard at work inking and colouring, with possibly a bit of tongue-sticking-out concentration:
Pam, Gemma, Bryan (who is looking super-nice in his pink pinny), Donna, Tracy, Jill.
If you have seen my DVDs you may recognise this layout, and this is what we were creating yesterday using the new stamps:
Goat Monster by Kira Nichols, Journey Collage by Amy Wilson Wellenstein for Stampotique
Basic backgrounds, Doodle parts, and ink sprays by Dylusions.
I have noticed something strange happening in my ledger journal (and it only happens in this journal). If I have used Archival inks which are oil based, the oil must seep through to other pages in the book, because when I spray inks onto a clean page the ink gets soaked up by the oil and I get an exact replica of the stamping from other pages! Ha! A ready-made background! Whether I wanted it or not!
Today, my children are at school, the house is empty and peaceful .... but hang on a minute. Where's the dog?
She's always behind me, but she's nowhere to be seen.
Hmmmm, it's suspiciously quiet, she must be doing something she's not supposed to be doing.
Ah, there she is! What was that rule about 'no dogs on the furniture'?! Shall I turf her off or leave her there? She looks mighty cosy ..............
Byee for now........
