Went I sat down to make today’s artist trading card I was in the mood for a little doodling … so that’s what I did :)
Today’s ATC sees me delving the stash again. This time around I found a digi stamp that I had coloured in a while ago.
This one is entitled “I’ve No Idea What I Was Thinking – It Just Happened Like This”.
When you see the creation, you’ll understand.
Well, I did something today that I haven’t done in nearly a year – I went on a date!
I was a bag of jibbering nerves …
Well, I had a little more time than I thought to make today’s creation so I did got to town with a bit of allsorts included.
Spring will be on it’s way (hopefully) sometime soon so I thought that I would do a nice floral design for today’s ATC challenge.
One of my favourite artistic styles is Art Deco. The ladies and gents (depicted in the movies) all dressed up and had a whale of a time.
This Artist Trading card is therefore dedicated to my love of the era.
Today’s little creation takes us into the murky depths of the sea, to meet a colourful friend.
This week I have been making an Artist Trading Card using stamps from Tiddly Inks that I got free in a copy of Quick Cards Made Easy.
I’m glad that I have managed to get this project completed as I now have a little something to giveaway for my 150th blog post!
In case you hadn’t noticed it’s been darn hot this past week so I’ve really not spent much time in the craft room but have still managed to have a little play.
You know the saying. ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’. I’m not so sure.
If like me you have a stash of stencils and templates that you got donkey’s years ago, and that have sat in the drawer since then, why not have a rummage and see if any would be suitable for Zentangling.
That’s very much what I’ve been doing this weekend.
I recently produced a television show on Create and Craft TV that aimed to highlight the Big Knitathon which is an event to be held on the 16th November in aid of the Big Issue foundation.
Hearing how The Big Knitathon hopes to raise awareness of the role of the Big Issue seller, and funds for the Big Issue foundation, through a communal project to create the worlds biggest knitted blanket shows just how connected the creative world can be.
I genuinely struggle with knitting (although can crochet) but wanted to send Stephen Robertson, the CEO of The Big Issue Foundation, something to show appreciation for taking the time to come into the studios and being brave enough to learn to knit live on TV and so I decided to make a card to encapsulate the community spirit that he inspired in me.
