Back Again

Can't believe it's almost a year since I last posted on my blog, I've not had a good year, have been very low and under treatment and therapy, this bipolar depression has let me down once again. However I've been feeling so much better since Christmas and have recently started an Art Journal which is very therapeutic, slapping paint around is what I love. I'm also doing a Fat Book swap on KCUK and enjoying that. Consequently I've got loads of pictures to upload, I'll try and do a few a day and start with some of the Fat book pages I've done.

Catch Up

Not been blogging for a while now or done much in the way of crafting except for some mixed media art. Depression hit me like a stone and I've had to force myself to do things, thing is when I force myself to do anything I feel  more creative than other times. I haven't scanned or photographed my latest projects but here is some I did a while ago. The above is an ATC which I did for a Swap I did on Katies Corner http://groups.yahoo.com/group/katyscorneruk/ I used a Tim Holz http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/ number background UM and a Paper Artsy http://shop.paperartsy.co.uk/index.asp Um. The tag was made for a swap  and I used Ferro dimentional paste http://www.paperartsy.co.uk/pdfs/Ferro.pdf on grungeboard for the background, I then stamped into it using a text stamp and a PaperArtsy scroll um I then painted it with Luminnaire paints

Lots to Do Challenge

The challenge on the Lots To Do challenge blog on Saturday was to make a tag using a different shape than is usual. I used a Nestabilities label die to cut mine out of chipboard, I then did the background using Viva Ferro paste then stamped into it with a flourish stamp and a text um, and dabbed on  various acrylic paints till I got the effect I want. The method is on Paper Artsy Blog and I just love this technique. The main image is from A plate of ums from The Artistic Stamper. I added an eyelet , beads, prima flower and fibres from my stash.

Cat Arch for Something Completely Different

This is my Cat Gothic Art for this weeks challenge on Something Completely Different. I've recently received an order from Paper Artsy and have had fun playing. The background I did by applying a thick coat of Viva Ferro paste, I then sprayed 2 different stamps with water and stamped into it. I painted over this when dry with acrylic paints until I got the desired effect. It is not my idea, Leandra from PaperArtsy has an excellent video on her blog paperartsy.co.uk/blog/blog.html. All the stamps I used are from Paper Artsy as is the paint and chip board arch.

Black and White Mingle card

Made this card a few weeks ago but was waiting until my  partner for the mingle on  Katies Corner Group received her card. The mingle was to make a black and white card for your partner. I stamped the main image in versark twice on one image I put black embossing powder and on the other I used white embossing powder then cut each image in two and matched 2 different pieces together. The image was from a plate of Ums from Hearts in Touch  and the background  a texture plate from Carolines rubberstamps was embossed in white on black card. I added some pima flowers with a designer brad fom a set I got as a gift
