A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

Hello.  Welcome.  A extra big hello to Dunja and Jamie who have joined my little following.  A pleasure to have you along.

I have been spending way too much time checking out all the fab posts over at PaperArtsy.  Have you been there this week?  They are releasing stamps and paints and stencils and there are just so many things to look at, and yes I must admit, things to buy!!  I have started with a modest little order which I hope will soon be winging it's way across the sea.  Speed bonny postman, speed......

With so many new product and samples I've been a bit sidetracked.  This project was going to be based on Julie Ann Lee's posts but I spotted a lovely tag on the JOFY post which just jumped out at me.  I don't have any JOFY flowers (speed bonny postman, speed) so I have used flowers from ELB04 and SM12 and given them a bit of a JOFY look.  Well, I tried.....

I started by stamping flowers from ELB04 in white acrylic onto kraft card.  Then I added some Pansy FF paint highlights. Then I cut it to make a large tag

I coloured some card with FF Pansy and Inky Pool and stamped the flowers from SM12 and SIEN10F and cut them out.  I've added some grass using a white paint marker and a green pro-marker. 

I added a moth Julie Ann Lee style and some pretty fibers.

Thanks for dropping by.  Off to post this before Mr Linky closes........ Then I have to empty a load of stuff from my craft room.  I have a single bed in here that just acts as somewhere to put stuff.  After remarking on it numerous times my man has decided it needs to be moved and he will put in a work bench instead.  Hurrah.  So I need to get all my stuff moved out so he can do his thing tomorrow.  Must help to make the transition a smooth one.  Hope to be back crafting in a much more spacious and organised way very soon.....
