PaperArtsy Lovliness

Yesterday I showed you this...........

.........and had to dash off to road test a few, well this is what I did!

First up, I used this BEAUTIFUL sewing and haberdashery collage from HP1216. It doesn't really need any other images with it as it kinda has everything! I just added a few buttons, ribbon and washi tape.....done!

Next up.........

......as the previous sample had been really quite girlie, a more masculine piece was called for. I used three of the stamps from the brand new HP1218 along with a map from HPXT01 plus a little bit of metal for added interest.

What did I use to colour these images????

Ta Dah!!

My fabby box of Gelatos that I purchased from SimonSaysStamp. 
They have been a bit neglected since I got them so thought what a great opportunity to try them out.....do I like them.......yes I do!

Thank you, thank you Mr & Mrs PaperArtsy for the wonderful new stamps, I can see me using them a lot in the next few weeks but of course if you feel that you can't live without them, they are all ready to ship from PA HQ now. They are only a click away! www.paperartsy.co.uk

 I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful sunshine and I can't quite believe that I am going to tell you that I am back off to the studio to finish a Christmas class project!!! It's been something that has been on my "to do" list for a while and as I really need to get the rest of my classes on the website so I thought I would tackle it this week. Maybe that's why we finally have some sun! Anyways, whilst I am talking about classes, a quick plug.....I am teaching a two day Altered Book class this weekend and there are spaces left. If you fancy a weekend of dabbling with Ice Resin, Image Transfers, Stamping & painting on fabric and loads of other painty things then click here for all the details, it would be great if you could join me. Oh and just an afterthought....we could play with Gelatos too!!

That's me for today, hope you all have a wonderful day.

Gorgeous stamps and wonderful colouring. I've not tried Gelatos for colouring. what are they? I must have been living under a rock! I've yet to try iced resin too, though I have seen results of what these can acheive. Enjoy your Christmas crafting.
