Craft-along-a-Barbie – Part 2

Craft-along-a-Barbie – Part 2

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How has your day been? Have you enjoyed it? I have.! Mind you, it got off to a very shaky start. Cannot tell you why I get so anxious and fearful – but it seems to kick in in the wee small hours, when I wake up. The head hooks into something, starts gnawing at it, then starts whizzing, starts projecting and picking up momentum. By 5am I may as well get up, because…

Dee-lightful!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s Monday again, so here begins the launch of another absolutely Dee-lightful Dee Paramour, apart from being a good friend, also happens to be a brilliant PaperCrafter and Dee-signer! Did you know that she Dee-signed a whole range of papers for us too? Not digitally cobbled together. Nope. Every single paper is handmade, handstamped, hand inked. So if some of the papers look 3-dimensional, that’s because the originals really are! There are 5 8×8…

Lino cuts – A cut above.

Lino cuts – A cut above.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Did you join in yesterday evening on the Moment of Clarity Craftalong? We took a second look at those wonderful butterflies by Cherry Green. Stamping on parchment certainly is lovely. The properties of parchment – the stretching, the whitework, the erasing of colour, the perforating – all these things contribute to a real arty experience. I find it very creative and relaxing. And the result of that stamped black lineart on parchment always seems…

Mop up Hearts

Mop up Hearts

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Saturday’s blog a new technique, right? New to who? Towittawoo? Quite by chance I came up with a couple of very cool bleeding heart tricks, which are really excellent as backgrounds, so I want to share with you. It’s using our Clarity Heart Backdrop Stamp, the large one. First combo-trick. Let’s use Artistry Ink pads for this one. We carry a good selection of the colours; I think they work brilliantly dry AND wet….
