Paper Artsy Guest Designer!!
Ok- it’s time to give you the surprising news that I’m up on the PaperArtsy blog over the next 4 months as a Guest Designer!!
Now, there is bound to be no one more surprised about this than I was when Leandra emailed and asked me.
I don’t fit into any typical mould. I’m certainly not one who possesses many painty skills. I wondered quite how I was going to manage.
It took me back. Back to my stamping beginnings.
I did own PaperArtsy stamps many moons ago. When I started, I was much more artsy and definitely not showing the same style as today.
However, a brief spell with doing PAtwits 3Up ( some of you might remember that from last year) led to some really interesting conversations with PaperArtsy about how these gorgeous stamps can be CAS’ified and there is a wider community that have never considered them because we tend to put stamp manufacturers in a particular ‘box’ that we access if we feel we have a style that fits.
I’m hoping the lovely PaperArtsy family don’t revolt and wonder why I’m there. They are such a lovely bunch of artists and it’s a real honour to be getting to know some of them.
This picture is a sneak peek..hop over to the PaperArtsy blog here and see the projects I’ve created- I’m up tonight, Monday and Tuesday -and the projects are quite different. The next two aren’t even cards ( shock!)
I hope you’ll consider branching out yourself- my job is to make others look at these stamps with a fresh eye, one that says ‘think of how you could use them with the style that you have’.
I’m doing a One stamp 5 Ways theme and here’s the set
Now I love Jo Firth-Young’s sets- totally my thing, but I thought I’d give myself a challenge, and totally love Lynne’s images. Hope you like what I did with them.
Please pop over to the blog and give me a little ‘love’ while you’re over there ( only if you fancy it, of course!!)
Are there any stamps you’ve done a U-turn over recently?!
See you tomorrow, xx
