The Grave Digger

 Hi Everyone 

Just another short post here today to give you the heads up that I'm over on That's Crafty's blog in my usual Thursday spot sharing my latest make 'The Grave Digger'. 

It's a mixed media art panel that I guess would be considered to be a 'Halloween' themed piece. Sure, its ideal for that occasion but I know it'll be displayed in my creative space year round along with my 'Skellie Heads' (see here) that I created 5 years ago now. 

I really enjoyed creating this one using some of Tim Holtz fab products - both old and new but all faves! 

Let me introduce you to 'The Grave Digger'


 

If you'd like to read more about my creativity, see more pics then you are welcome to come join me over on the blog . Just click HERE  for a quick and simple transfer over there. 
Hope to see you soon

Mr Blue

Hi Everyone, 

I'm over on That's Crafty's blog today in my regular weekly dt spot sharing some creativity so it's just another short post here to invite you to come join me. 

This last week I've been having fun again with some of Tim Holtz products and have created a mixed media art panel that features stamps from Tims Stampers Anonymous 'Inquisitive' stamp set along with  three or four of the distress mediums. 

The 'star of the show' is Mr Blue- a man of maths and all things related. 

 



If you would like to find out more Mr Blue and I would love for you to accept the invite and come see us over on the blog. 
Just click HERE and you'll be there in no time at all. 
Hope to see you soon 
Amanda (& Mr Blue)

'Happy Birthday to You'

 Hi Everyone 
and 
Happy September! 

Wow where does the time go?? ⏰

Another Thursday too so I'm over on That's Crafty's blog in my usual dt spot sharing some creativity. 

Unfortunately, a few unforseen life curve balls this last week left me with very limited creative time so todays make is very much an example of something you could create if ever you find yourself short of time. 

It a bright, cheery and colourful birthday card that saw me teaming up an AALL & Create Washi tape with some of my much loved Tim Holtz distress inks and the 'Happy Birthday' saying from Tim's Stampers Anonymous 'Bold Saying' (CMS433) stampset. 

Here's a quick look at the card...

There's more to see and read over on the blog so if you fancy popping by just click HERE for a  quick re-route. 

Would love for you to join me so hope to see you soon

My Favourite Colour for PaperArtsy

 Hi Everyone, 

Tonight I would like to invite you to join me over on PaperArtsy's blog where I am honoured and humbled (as I always am) to be a Guest Blogger for their current topic: My Favourite Colour.

I've been in my 'happy' place creating for this topic as not only was I working with my favorite colour (ok colours) I was also using Seth Apters stamps. 
Wahoo! 

So here's my 'UNITY' art block- the result of lots of paint layers , detail stamping, a touch of stenciling and some embossing.  


I'll take you on a quick tour around
 The upper left area


Upper right area


Lower left area

That all come together in 'UNITY'


The art block is wall mountable or free standing and as I'm really happy with how it turned out it's gained a place on my studio wall! 


I would love for you to accept my invitation (no R.S.V.P necessary) and come join me over on PaperArtsy's blog.

Hope to see you soon
