Simply convenient

Having started my design course and investing in a new sketch wallet and other drawing goodies, I thought I would doll up my case and matching tote with my favourite of all stamps Simply sassy pillow talk I have used her a lot even though I also purchased delicious and love a latte and sugar pip, this one was the one I chose to jazz up my bag.

The case and tote are made of a paintable canvas which I primed with artists gouache and then a layer of titanium white acrylic paint but not before masking off the area I wanted to stamp in I then stamped my image with Stazon black and water coloured with whispers brush markers and sealed with crafters companions clear spray varnish I must admit I went a bit crazy with varnish and it made the stazon bleed a bit but not too noticeable unless you look closely, I'm please with the result as it is the first time I have tried stamping on canvas, I finished off my edges with cosmic shimmer glitter glue, I have since die cut some flowers out of felt and attached these with eyelets.


And as usual a close up for you x


Thanks for looking see you soon x

Guess what I've been up to

I must apologize for my lack of posting the past couple of weeks as I have been up to allsorts. Term started for me on the 14th of September and I have enrolled myself on an access to art and design course which will hopefully lead me on to do my BA Hons in Art and design, so far it has been really interesting the tutors really know how to take you out of your comfort zone, I have also had a make over done by my lovely fiancée, oh yes of course while we were away he proposed, and I am now engaged so, my brain has not exactly been on crafting, as I have had a lot of letters, to write and phone calls to make just so no one hears its second hand from any body Paul has a lot of family, so now my head is back in blog land i will be sharing with you my experiences on my course and back to entering a few challenges I hope. So please stay tunes as I take you on this fabulous journey of mine, to think I'm forty one and for me life has taken an unexpected turn, and as for my make over(and the ring) I'm sure pics will follow soon. Its so good to be back.

Thanks for stopping by talk soon x
