January So Far

Despite the on going clear out in the basement, my work table still looks like a bomb has gone off on top of it. It’s littered with projects I’m working on which you’ll get to see soon along with some new craft materials I found last weekend at Expo Creativ in Luxembourg, exciting stuff. I visited Lux Expo with friends taking public transport to get there for a change. Honestly, I have no idea why I don’t do it more often. It’s so cheap and painless and in March it’ll be free too so it’s a bit of a no brainer! We were pleasantly surprised to discover a few new craft stands as well as some familiar faces. We have to continue to support this local event even though it’s tiny in comparison with Frankfurt or Dortmund. It’s still the only event of its kind in the country. Lena keeps telling me I need to have a stand there too, maybe one day!

My A6 bullet journal and cover embellished with materials from the January box from Paper Pen and Plan on Etsy

I’m continuing to use my A6 bullet journal this year, it’s the only one I regularly kept up in 2019. I’m using one called Scribbles That Matter which I found on line and it’s great. I don’t get any bleed through with my pens and I’m mostly using a Micron pen for my doodles. This little one won’t be used with watercolour paints as it’s for carrying around with me and on the go planning so has to be functional and practical. It does come with a nifty pen holder but I’m reusing my hand painted cover so the holder gets lost inside, but I’m sure I can knock something up if I need it.

January kicked off with the first Facebook challenge of the year on the WOW! Facebook page. The new theme is Love, Valentine, Wedding etc so it was a brilliant opportunity to create some hearts. I’m not an obviously, all pink and red hearts sort of person so jumped at the chance to try out some new colour combinations coming up with these two cards. I simply can’t decide which of the purple colours I like best, Royal Crush or Persian Indigo, they’re equally gorgeous. Photography isn’t my strong point and I really wish you could see how wonderful they are. I love that little splash of colour on the top one created by simply dipping a piece of watercolour paper into Distress Oxide inks on my craft mat. It’s a technique I love.

Have a great weekend I hope it’s a crafty one and I’ll speak soon.

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.
