Thanks for popping in.
Long day at the office today – but very productive, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Berautiful sunny day here in kent. Fantastic light. And the colours are just starting to change, aren’t they? Red, burgundy, claret, ochre – I love autumn!
So I came home to a scrap I had left on the table yesterday – and I’m not talking about the roast pork!!!
Eenie meenie miny mo…
Time to get out some beautiful old stamps of ours…. I LOVE these!! – especially the trees!
Let’s stamp the Deerscape in a blend of Plum and Black Archival on this scrap then.
Set the scene, so to speak.
Trees next. Whoops. Blotted the trunk a bit too much. I know I wanted misty, but that’s extreme!
Good job these trees double up as hedges if you use the sides! So a little hedgery ensued….
Now we’ve got our old slippers on, we may as well get in character, and add some torn paper hills!
… and it wouldn’t be a Gray original if it didn’t have a….
And I love this word stamp. It comes from a different stamp set. Equally delightful.
Trim the scrap,
Edge the scrap with a Sharpie pen and ruler.
Now for a background layer. This lovely Designer pad designed by Dee is screaming for me to look!
The clue’s in the title.
Wow. Perfect, or what?!?!?
Trim, layer up and mount on a white 8” x 8” cardblank for good measure.
Scrap? What scrap? I so enjoy making something out of nothing.
Done. So let’s have a bloggy special offer for a change, shall we?
If you buy the Deerscape and Meadowdance set,
I will ask the guys at work to add the entire Let Heaven and Nature sing stampset FREE. GRATIS.
AS A GIFT.
It may not show on your order, but I will make sure the second set comes to you. Debby – are you reading this, oh Head of retail dispatch?! To know her is to love her. Offer ends at the end of this month.
Autumn is beautiful; let’s celebrate it!
Things are pretty mental at work just now. You must wonder why I take so much time out to do artwork if we’re that busy. Surely I should invest my time more wisely. Actually, this is what keeps me grounded. The busier we get, the more I need this daily dose of isolation and art. And that’s the truth.
Love & Hugs,
