Creative Artiste #85 August Mixed Media Challenge

Hello Lovely Creative Friends 

I hope you are all keeping well..??

The past few months have been what can only be described as bedlam, 
incredibly stressful, heightened care duties, house moves and legalities 
not helped by catching Covid which I'm still suffering from it's affects.. 

A big thank you to all that have stuck by me these past months 
it means more than I can say in words.. Myself and family are thankful 
these life hurdles, albeit life changing can be overcome with time.. 

Sooo a scheduled blog post again.. 

our monthly theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes.


This month I share a small mixed media canvas, layered with leftovers 
found amongst my messy craft desk. Paper doily's, layered texture using 
stencils and paste, buttons and lacy scraps add a little touch of me.. 

Calming down the glued chaos with a wash of white gesso a found washer 
acts as a firm frame for three tree twigs wrapped in silken thread. 

Please join the Creative Artiste Design Team HERE 
and share your Mixed Media creations with us all. 

Take care of yourselves and each other..
Stay safe and creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

Bumper Edition..!! New Paperbabe Stamps and Blog Challenge..

 Hello Creative Friends 

Three new Paperbabe stamp sets are due for release on 30th July 

Each set works in harmony together and cleverly co-ordinates 
with many other Paperbabe stamps in the collection.

Here's a Bumper sample introduction.. 
First using just two Hand stamps and a Hand Written stamp quote..


Manipulating two clear hand stamps curving around the heart surrounded 
by quotes from the Hand Written stamp set and the other with just one 
simple hand holding a message of unity in a clean and simple style. 


Combining stamps from all three sets the postcard design inspired me to 
stamp, hand embroider and create a needle tag book with calico and thread. 


Just a handful of samples using the NEW RELEASE STAMPS.

Today see's the start of a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge 
why not pop over and see what the Design Team have created 
and share your makes @ Paperbabe Stamps Blog Challenge #173 

There's a prize for one randomly chosen winner every fortnight. 

Stay safe and creative 
Hugs Tracey xx
