Picture Inspiration ~ Paperbabe Stamps blog Challenge #111

Hello Creative Friends,

Time for a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #111
this fortnight we ask you to use the picture below to
inspire your stamped creations.

Here's what I created and how it came to be..

Using a page taken from my New Junk Journal for 2020 I
painted over the text using white gesso to create white space.
Stamping a Flourish taken from the new Flourishing Hair Stamp set
dots of colour similar to the prompt add interest around the page.

Stamping one if the flowers taken from the *NEW* Flourishing Hair 
Stamp set on to scribbled dots of colour this is such a quick 
and easy way to create.

I used the NEW Flourishing Hair Mask aperture to trace around a 
Paperbabe Dinky Female Face i'd found partially coloured. 
Cut out she will fit perfectly into that stamped flourish...

Words taken from the Flourish and Grow set add a statement.

Cutting and pasting the face into the flourishing hair stamp a 
wash of watercolour creates her hair with the cut and formed 
flowers glued in place helping frame this Paperbabe design.

I do hope you can join us this fortnight. 
Pop on over HERE there's lot's more to see.. 
and a prize of course for one very lucky winner!!

Sending creative Hugs your way 
Tracey xx

A very late WoywW #555

Hello everyone.. 

Desk sharing day over @ the Stamping ground thanks to Julia, 

Well it's been a pretty poor start to the year for me as i've 
been suffering with severe migraine, pain in my left eye and 
what the Doctor seems to think is a virus, so under the Docs 
advice i've had to limit online time as blogger can be very 
mean on the eyes with it bright white glare. 

Woyww #554 showed lots of new dies, stamps and stencils purchased during 
the Christmas Sales just needing the time and energy to play with them.

So in real time it's a dark start to today's WoywW #555 but my desk is 
showing signs of life with journal prep under way. I'm really hoping 
my new prescription glasses will help me get some work done today.

especially if this little one decides to have a lazy day.. 

Thank you to everyone who sent messages and those that came 
over to visit my DT duties I just about managed to post. 

Look forward to seeing What's on your work desk 
this Wednesday and catching up with everyone.. 

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx

Paperbabe Stamps January Launch

Hello everyone, 

With today's Official launch day of Paperbabe Stamps New 
January releases I thought i'd share a couple more makes to 
show you just how versatile the latest releases really are.

The new hand stamps and hand templates enable us to pose 
our Paperbabe dinky faces and torso's. How cool is that?

The flourish template gives us apertures to frame those 
Paperbabe faces or trace and cut out with a steady hand 
as I did to create a window within a card. 

With the matching Flourish hair stamps to add definition 
around that window the Flourish and Grow word stamps 
can give an alternative addition to the hair. 

Simple but so effective..

The new stamp & template collection is fabulous to use on it's own 
or mix and match with existing Paperbabe Dinky & 3/4 face stamps... 

I'm looking forward to playing more and sharing my DT 
creations with you all over the coming weeks... 

but for now I'd like to thank you all for stopping by 
and wish you all a very creative weekend. 
Hugs Tracey xx
