I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on my recent posts.
I would like to share some news with my blogging friends and its part of the reason for the surge in posting over the last few days. For me, last year and the horrors of it all has made me rethink a lot of things in my life one of them being how I spend my free time. I have a list of different hobbies and crafty ideas that I would like to pursue at my leisure and I would really like to spend more time with my darling husband. Consequently, I have, with a heavy heart, decided to step down from the Crafty Individuals Design Team. I have had a fantastic 6 years working on the Team for Jean and Malcolm. It has been the best job ever working with stamps that I love and ones that I have been collecting for over 15+ years. The other opportunities that I have had, whilst being on the team, have been amazing and I would like to thank Jean and Malcolm for those.
As this will be my last post as a Design Team Member, I wanted to share my favourite project out of the recent samples I made. Really going back to my crafty roots with this one. Recycling and using what I had to hand.
I used a panel from a card board box, removed some of the outer paper layer and painted it with black gesso.
I used a piece of backing board from a pad of water colour paper, cut it to size and painted it grey/green and attached it to the black cardboard. I used some pieces of a children’s wooden jigsaw puzzle and painted the pieces.
I then stamped onto the puzzel pieces and added a bit of scribbly text using a nib and white acrylic ink.
I stamped the image onto a piece of white card, coloured the cats cut them out and attached them to the puzzle pieces. I then attached the puzzle pieces to the background pieces. I used gel medium to attach all of the layers.
All of the new stamps will be on the Crafty Individuals website very soon. Do also check out the Crafty Individuals page on Facebook where Jean regularly does live demos, the Crafty Individuals Facebook Group page and also Jean’s blog.
Thank you to all of my lovely blogging friends for your support. It is very much appreciated.
Take care, hugs Flo xx
