Here we are at the beginning of April and because of the current situation, i.e. being on lockdown to stop the spread of this awful virus, every day has started to blur into the next. I’ve started to imagine it’s the weekend every day! We’ve had some fabulous sunny days which makes me so grateful to live where I do and have a garden in which to enjoy the sun. I know for a lot of people it’s really difficult right now!

People all over the world are making their own fun and creating a little happiness wherever they can. On social media I’ve seen lots of beautiful rainbows being displayed in windows everywhere, all sizes and formats. WOW! Embossing Powder must have had some amazing forward thinking as the new theme on their Facebook Fan page is Rainbow.

I created my rainbow from these beautiful colours from the Primary’s range, hand painting the brush stroke with the Mixed Media Embossing Brush from Seth Apter. I love how it turned out.

If you’d like to see more rainbow inspired creations or join the fun by designing your own colourful project, go to the WOW Embossing Powder Fans page on Facebook.

Have a good weekend and stay safe

I’m not sure the words ‘pastel’ and ‘love’ have been used much in my vocabulary but when I saw that the theme for the month at WOW! is Pastels, of course I had to embrace it.

I created these two projects, the second one up on the blog as a tutorial, and I think I can honestly say, pastels are my new love – well until the end of Easter anyway!

Catch up with the latest pastel creations and find out how I made the above decorated eggs by visting WOW! Embossing here.

Spring Inspiration!

Happy Friday and hello spring? The end of February was glorious where we are, warm, sunny and dry. I think we got a little carried away with ourselves and started to imagine outdoor activities and ice-cream! I know, I’m guilty of pushing the woolly pullies to the back of the wardrobe.

However, March came in and whoops!! Stormy, wet and cold weather was back. My wardrobe is a mess, as the woollies have been dragged over the spring garments and scarves pulled out from under thin tops. Ah well, it was a bit bonkers to be honest not to mention worrying.

My morning walks with Cooper are a good opportunity to watch the season change however and gather some inspiration along the way.  The pine branch above will find its way into my sketch book and may even be used next Christmas.  The fern will be used in a print I think and already I’ve added a small piece in my Simple Stories planner layout. I touched it with a brayer and a little white ink to tone it down and help it blend into the page better.

It fitted perfectly with my spring like theme for March and the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse collection ephemera from Paper Pen and Plan.

I also used a little on my WOW! Embossing Powder Facebook challenge piece. This month the challenge is all about foils and I was desparate to use mine in an abstract way. I love abstract backgrounds and using them this way over a smooshed ink layer was so much fun.

I’m declaring March Nature Inspiration month just because I can! Why not try including a little nature in your work?

Have a good weekend

WOW! Embossing Powder and Trinity Blog Hop

WELCOME

Welcome to the WOW! Embossing Powder and Trinity blog hop.We’ve a super talented line up of designers for you to follow along with, all sharing some fabulous inspiration as well as the opportunity to win some amazing prizes! The hop will last until the 3rd March so you’ll have plenty of time to have a look around. Don’t forget to leave a comment on all of the blogs if you want the opportunity to win the prizes, which are listed below.

The Blog Hop prize announcement will be made on Wednesday, 6th March 2019, and winners will be announced on both Trinity Stamps & WOW! Embossing blog. The prizes include: 6 x powders (of the winners choosing) + a carry case from WOW! Embossing Powder, and Trinity Stamps have an amazing pack of goodies with Stamps, Die and Embellishments.

So what did I make…?

I was lucky enough to be sent this super cute stamp set called Bouquet Of Hope which is so full of detail and great for some colouring. I combined it with the new Embossing ink refill tool and Taffeta Pink Embossing powder.

While the stamp was on the block, I inked up the bottom half with a VersaFine ink then spot inked using the new Inking tool, the flowers at the top, and stamped my image onto watercolour paper.  I could then emboss the top part of the image with the Taffeta powder and used my favourite watercolours to add a wash of colour, keeping it loose and fresh.

I’m loving this tool and I can see it’s going to totally change the way I ink and stamp in the future. You will be able to get your hands on it from March onwards.

The blog line up is as follows…
