Thanks for popping in. Just spent a couple of very lovely, chatty, crafty, arty hours with a dear friend on Facetime. Many of you will know Sam Crowe from oop norf. To know her is to love her. It was great to catch up with her.
She’s a smashing woman. Fun and crazy. Here we see here in action at the last Open Days in Ditton…
When we get talking about art and projects, we could go on forever. She‘s just got so many ideas in that head of hers! So today it was time to have a proper chinwag and a share.
I guess it’s our new company Pinky Gray on the horizon which has prompted us to hook up. Sam’s right into her Journaling and Stationery – so we were way overdue a creative planning session! Oh boy have we rustled up some great ideas together!!
It’s great to talk about art and design to a like-minded creative like our Sam. She is a Clarity gal through and through. She loves what I do, and I love what she does. We are very different in our styles, and yet often very similar in our approach.
Our Facetime session was intense to say the least. Bouncing ideas around and leaping about from idea to idea. I need a lie down now!
The last Stamps and Stencil Set she designed for Clarity and showcased on Hochanda TV was fantastic. At first glance, it was a whole load of shapes and holes, designed to create arty background. Remember this amazing lot?
This is how it started out life, in Sam’s idea books, which she doodles and draws and creates in all day long…
She sends us those books and ideas…
Then Lucy, our clever Clarity Designer, sprinkles her magic and cleverness on it, and turns all those doodles and arty scribbles into beautiful stamps and stencil prototypes.
These we send back to Sam, to make sure we’ve interpreted her ideas accurately, and then she translates them into art for us.
The Clarity Sample Design team then put their spin on it – and hey presto! We have an irrestistible collection of stamps and stencils, inspired and designed by Sam Crowe
Isn’t that something?
Teamwork makes the dream work. Wonderful when it comes together.
When it comes to Sam, what can I say except she is the Genuine Article. She is exactly who she is. A creative, kind, good woman, a wife and mother of two, who has a unique arty talent, who writes powerful poetry, and who can put colour together like a star.
