WoywW #599

 Hello everyone, 

Desk sharing day over @the stamping ground 
thanks to Julia our host it's week #599 oh my!!

No online time for me last week as much as I love 
ALL your company life rolls that way some weeks. 

Realised this weekend that I'd not made any Christmas cards 
there was a high chance that people may have been receiving 
one similar to the card below if I didn't get a move on 😂

 so here's yesterdays desk with the last of the batch.. hope i've not 
missed the last postal dates for those international ones eekk!!

Look forward to seeing what's on your workdesks, 
some online catch ups and a free weekend.. Yay!! 

**Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate**
Enjoy your day.. 

Stay safe and creative everyone..

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ #132 Frosty Feels

 Hello everyone, 

New challenge time over @ Paperbabe Stamps 
This fortnight's theme is Frosty Feels or Cool Tones

Use the words to inspire and interpret your designs 
and please come share your creations with us HERE

Here's my DT creation and what those words meant to me..

Oh the comfort of a hot drink on chilly days.. 
I've drawn a mug with Robin to fit in her die cut 

As Autumn moves closer to Winter and the nights draw in 
there's nothing like curling up on the sofa in the 
comfort of your own home with your feet up.

A magazine page painted and fashioned in a style to suit my 
she displays the Portrait head die and stamp and 
flowing purple voluptuous Celestia Hair

Take time out to enjoy the simple things in life..

Hope to see your Feels Frosty or Cool Tones creations HERE

Stay safe & cosy.. 

Creative wishes

WoywW #597

 Hello everyone, 

Desk sharing day @ the stamping ground

Not what i'd hoped to be sharing today, having had a 
busy month preparing for new releases, i'd hoped to have 
started on my Christmas cards but I'm just not feeling it. 

Squished in the tiniest of spaces i've been playing with colour 
& a freebie from Crafter's Companion nice sentiments I must say. 

Maybe a clean up will help me find my Christmas mojo .. 😂

Short & sweet this week but before I go has anyone else had 
problems commenting on blog posts? I've had awful trouble 
over the weekend especially with embedded boxes, 
changed mine to a pop up to see if that helps...? 

Sorry to anyone I missed visiting
I try not to leave anyone out.. 

Stay safe & Creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

Paperbabe Stamps November Release Blog Hop


Time to finally release this amazing 
Jointed Paperbabe Art Doll Collection 
and celebrate with a BLOG HOP... 

but before we do let me introduce you to more of those 
A5 pretty papers don't the Paperbabe Dolls wear them well.

showing off her new die cut and stamped 3/4 view face. 
Her hairstyle is one of many to fashion, mix and match 
just like those faces in profile, left & right 3/4 view.

This foxy lady has been waiting so long to be seen, so sad
she missed her Halloween party like many of us last weekend. 

She's demonstrating when used with the jointed Art Doll's 
unique paper brad system it gives a seamless appearance. 

A revolutionary way to construct articulated hinges, giving us 
an alternative option to those metal brads we all know & love.

Now it's time to celebrate with the Team..

Creative Artiste *November Mixed Media Challenge* #66 ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

 Hello Creative Friends, 

It's November Challenge time @ Creative Artiste 
where it's always *Anything Mixed Media Goes*

Determined to create something using past left overs and with 
Remembrance day in the forefront of my mind. I came across a 
calico panel obviously an idea started but pushed to one side. 
Along with three Darkroom door Poppies they made perfect 
companion for my November mixed media make... 

Lets get started!!

Glued to a 4 x 7 canvas I extended the scene using 
jute, burlap and loose fibres along with lace offcuts 
and organza strips. Defining the details with the help 
of pencils, paints and inks. 

Layering all three Poppies together, attaching to a 
twisted wire stem, calico leaves cut and painted 
from cotton remnants help design one single Poppy.

The teased jute ribbon highlighted with white gesso 
reminds me of rural fencing against the landscape.

I loved making this significant and personal piece 
with family & friends firmly in my mind.. 

Stay strong everyone *Hope Shines Through* 

For more inspiration please pop on over and see what the 
Creative Artiste Design Team have created and join our

I look forward to seeing your Mixed Media Makes. 

Take care everyone
Creative wishes

What's on your Wednesday Workdesk #596

 Hello everyone, 

Wednesday desk sharing day @ the Stamping ground.

Missed last week due to two missions of mercy first to 
release trapped washing mid cycle from Mom's machine 
then click, collect and deliver a new kettle to MIL, 
an essential essential more than ever right now.

Nothing more than mess & remnant's on this workspace.. 
Can't share any new makes until tomorrow 😊 

so i'll say my thank you's to everyone for my Birthday wishes 
and share this bundle of loveliness I received from Dear Dorthe. 
Beautiful card and mini book displayed open, hard to show all 
the details in these treasured gifts. Wrapped in a co-ordinating 
napkin now saved for a future make. Thank you Dorthe xx

Had some fabulous gifts for my Birthday including 
new pencils (I forgot to photograph) two online courses 
and this bundle of happiness *Sigh* 

Treated myself to replacement pencil sharpeners, 

and finally I just had to have this charming felted mini scene 
created by the very talented Maxine @ Tilly Tea Dance  
Now on my craft room wall.. so calming..

Look forward to seeing what you've all been up to.. 

Take care & stay safe everyone 
Creative Hugs
