All Wrapped Up

Good evening lovelies

I've had a lovely crafting day today, I started off fussy cutting but my 2 hooligan Leonberger dogs were sort of trying to help lol - their BIG wet noses just kept getting in the way soooooo......

.............'Wrapped Up Heart' journal page was created instead (I'm back to fussy cutting this evening)

I've been dying to use some of my my new France Papillon stamps......

  • bird cage which I used parts of - the lovely twirly cage feet and the inner cage poles which I flipped on it's side to create the horizontal lines running down the centre of my page 
  • my heart which I stamped twice onto whitewashed old book pages, one I cut outside the lines the other inside the lines.
  • romantic text was stamped as a background image, I love all the soft lines and loops in this beautiful text.
  • when your heart speaks text, which I simply used the word 'heart'

The Singer sewing machine came out and I created a backdrop of hearts for the 3 interwoven  rusty wire hearts I fashioned - France's stamped hearts were layered and sewn together and nested on top of the slightly larger sewn,wire hearts (leave any cotton threads attached and dangling loose)

Doodles with my Stabilo all-pencil - black and Stabilo all white pencil.

 Top up colour doodles with Crayola portfolio pastels, hi-light with Signo-uni-ball gel-pen - white and a black Posca marker

Right tis cuppa tea time for me and a snuggle with my Pug Sammy before I get my scissors out again :-)

Thanks for stopping by x

  12. Hi there, its me!! I thought I was already following your blog but it seems I wasn't - still I am now. I love this project I could look at it all day and I was so blessed to have "stocked it" in the flesh. I look forward to seeing a lot more of your work and hopefully having a crafty day together maybe? XX Sam Crowe
