Everyone likes a sale right? I love a bargain.

Read Time:52 Second

Woo hoo, at last they’re in the shop and available for purchase – excitement and nerves all in equal measure. They’re all red rubber and unmounted which means for the best stamping result I recommend using a sticky foam mount on the back but of course it’s not necessary. All you need is a stamping block and some stick pritt and you’re good to go. The individual houses are approx 11 x 4.5cm and the 4 houses in a row 11 x 9cm

There’s a Dutch house with the phrase ” Big City Life” that comes with it.

A French house with “La Maison” of course,

A Georgian house with “Home Sweet Home”,

A Luxembourgish house with “Chez Nous”,

A second Luxembourgish house because I couldn’t resist and the phrase “Down Town”,

and my little row of houses.

I can’t pick a favourite it’s just too hard.

To buy them they’re available here in the shop  http://shop.basementstudio.lu/ 

I do hope you like them as much as I do.

IndigoBlu Mega Flakes tutorial

Read Time:28 Second

A couple of people had asked me if I would show how to use the Mega Flakes  from IndigoBlue which I have in the shop so I thought it would be a good idea to do it as a video.

This is the card I ended up making along with a couple of other projects.

I hope you find it useful.

Confidence Art Journal Page

Read Time:1 Minute, 47 Second

At the end of last year I posted a photo of how my Moleskine journal looks now it’s at the end, since then it’s become even fatter and is bursting at the seams, so it’s definitely time for a new one. This time I’ve bought myself a Strathmore to see how that stands up to my beloved Moleskine.

While I was waiting for it to arrive I created a new page in my much smaller Dylusions journal and as usual it was while Facetiming with Clare who was also testing out a new journal, her first Moleskine.

I got out the Dylusions paints and as usual I reached for my favourite colours, turquoise and green so to try and push myself out of a colour rut I thought I’d go for something I don’t normally do and put on some pink. As you can see I wasn’t so confident and didn’t slap it on too much but I was happy to know I’d broken out of this colour funk.

I thought I’d put the word Confidence on the finished page as it was the word of the moment. Confidence to try something new, confidence to believe in yourself and how quickly it can be taken away too with just one word.

I think it’s important for me to remember that not everyone has the confidence to slosh paint around and mess make in a journal like I do and there are people who would very much like to get started in journaling but have no idea where to start. So in the shop I’ve put together a series of kits which include a hand made A5 journal, two Dylusions paints, a stencil and stencil sponges and a stamp. The journal is 8 pages of 300gsm mixed media paper so well able to stand up to paint and wet mediums and is bound with a vintage manila file folder as a cover. There are 4 kits Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, each one with different stencils and paint colours.

My motto for the year will be “Try something new this year” so I hope you will.
