I have had Adobe Photoshop on my PC for as long as I can remember and all I have ever really done with it is use it for cropping photographs. Imagine my delight when I came across a couple of online tutorials for making digi stamps, so I had to have a play. After many failed attempts I did begin to get a few really good results. The first stamp is taken from a photograph of my Great Grandmother and the second is from a photo of my daughter.
I was so happy when I saw the theme for this weeks Wednesday Stamper, I love butterflies so I knew I had to have a go. This piece is quite small, about 2'x3'. I used a butterfly stamp from Crafty Individuals and the background is alcohol inks. I also used some Basic Grey rub-ons.
Thanks for taking time out to look.
Well a week has gone by and I haven't posted anything, let alone made anything, yes Audrey I was still having one of those days, in fact one of those weeks. I had all these great plans for the last week, I had time off work so time to play, and then my inspiration decided it was taking time off too. I was feeling pretty low about it really until yesterday when I took the plunge and got stuck into an RAK I wanted to send. I knew I wanted to make an ATC and holder, as the person it is for is ATC mad, so here is the result. I used Non sequitur stamps Across the Miles plate.
when no matter what you try to create just doesn't work? Well today has been one of those days for me. I had a great idea and couldn't wait to get started but no matter what I tried I couldn't get the look I was after so, many spoilt pieces of card and paper later, I gave up. I haven't given up on the idea totally just sidelined it for a day or so while I think about achieving the look I want. Just so I didn't feel like a complete failure I got stuck into some good old basic stamping and ended up doing two pieces.The first is a mini card, using Young Love plate 3 from the Urban Snapshots range from Paperartsy This second Piece is an ATC. I used another Paperartsy sheet of stamps but this time At Home plate 5. Do you get the impression I kinda like Paperartsy stamps, lol.
Well the predicted snow arrived this morning, not just a little sprinkling but a few inches, more snow than I've seen for several years. Everywhere just looked so clean and peaceful covered in it's white duvet.
I had to take my camera with me when I went to work as I walk through a lovely park to get there. I keep saying I want to get some photos of the park either covered in snow or a good frost as the big old trees look so beautiful.
I'm quite pleased how these pictures came out considering we had a pretty good fog as well as the snowfall.
Hey I've managed to post on my Blog for three days running, now believe me that is very good going. I am enjoying having a Blog and I have found myself using it as an excuse to take time out to create.
Well day two of having a blog and I have made an ATC using some Paperartsy stamps . I have never used these stamps despite wanting them so badly so I thought I'd give them a go and see what I came up with. The background is alcohol inks overstamped in grey and silver inks. The whole ATC is covered in acetate and that was stamped with the dots.
