A Heart is happiest…

A Heart is happiest…

…when it beats for others. Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Was cleaning up my artroom, in readiness for next week, and got immersed in a piece of scrapart. Remember the Doodleology Petal-heart blot from Friday? When I said Leonie would love this? Yes. that scrap… Just in case you missed this step, let‘s do it again… It went from a scrap of paper to a mounted scrap of paper. Here’s how I mounted the copy paper scrap on a…

Peace & Love – and a little Bling!

Peace & Love – and a little Bling!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Getting set for the Clarity Mixed Media TV Shows on HOCHANDA at 9am and 1pm on Friday, and thought I’d kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak, and showcase the beautiful Christmas Window stamps that Paul is showcasing this evening at 6pm on HOCHANDA! How about a photo step by step… The first thing to note is that our Stampboard shapes cut like butter. Craft knife, scissors, paper trimmer – you decide!…

Good Lord!! Well, as a little tribute to our ladies, I thought I’d rummage around in my bloggy…

Partial Art. Is that a thing?

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Partial Art. Is that a thing? Well, it is now! I hereby dub all partially used stamp images PARTIAL ART!! Shall I copyright it? Shall I hereby decree that PARTIAL ART has nothing to do with MARTIAL ART but everything to do with stamping! Tomorrow at 9am (and then again at 1pm) on HOCHANDA.com (best little Craft TV channel in the world) I shall be having a play with the whole idea of only…

Bring on the Glitz with Blitz!

Bring on the Glitz with Blitz!

Hi there. Haven’t played with a die for a while. Found this trap-the-scrap piece from one of our Fresh Cut Funky Foliage Leave & Trees Dies, and decided to turn it into a card for someone special. She likes a little bling, so here goes…. Trap the white card scrap from the die on a double-sided adhesive sheet. Then simply cover it in Gilding flakes. We sell lots of different colours – really nice! Use the yellow sponge to buff…

Water Colour Toadstools !

Water Colour Toadstools !

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie. So glad this morning’s water colour SHAC-Shack was well received! I think we’ll have a good week, developing those new ideas and perhaps trying them out on different subjects! I had a real hankering to colour in our toadstools from last week’s woods, but was way too busy with so much else all afternoon. I saw somebody else on facebook had done it too, beautifully, and wanted to try it even…

Really looking forward to this coming week now I know where the bus is headed! Not going too far afield this time. I think a Staycation is in order, don’t you? Then I went for a long walk with Mel and her dogs. It rained a little, but that was…

A Fantasy Doodle on Designer paper.

A Fantasy Doodle on Designer paper.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Came up to the SHACK to blog, and saw a scrap of Waimea Falls paper from yesterday’s paper piecing trick with the Maasai Warrior. Remember? It caught my eye because I saw a landscape…Do you see it too? So I settled down to a little bit of escapism, a little bit of “not here”, and decided to doodle a little fantasy place into the colours… Pick a Paper, any paper. Stare at it, until…

Another new outfit? Really?? But it was such a Bargain !!

Another new outfit? Really?? But it was such a Bargain !!

Hi there! Hope you are keeping safe and well? Last day in Africa today. Ahhh. I so enjoyed spending a week there with so many friends! The art and the vibe, the doodles and the colours, the banter and the songs – yes. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable little break away from it all. There’s just one little old technique I want to try with my little old Maasai warrior: a bit of paper piecing using the new designer…
