Hello, sadly neglected blog readers......

I seem to have been rather busy... so apologies for the lack of art shared here!

Today I am sharing a project over at the Calico Craft Parts blog... I just ADORE the printers trays used as shadow box frames... and the word? The word is from the Create Your own range... yep, you can ask them to make ANY WORD YOU WANT! Anything at all! in 5 different fonts and 5 different sizes! How cool is that! I chose 'dream' because I wasn't feeling that adventurous..... I have a list of weird and wonderful words all ready to order though!

Have a great day,
Trish xxx

A Memorial Blog Hop for Lily

Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.

My project is this colourful panel...

I created layers of detail on the background using paint, stencilling, printing, splattering, stamping and a little bit of washi tape...

As it is quite a thick panel, I could create my favourire black and white striped edging..

The amazing octopode figure was printed off, then covered in clear gesso. As I like to colour with wet media, the clear grsso gives the paper a nice protective layer! I used acrylic inks and watercolour pencils to add the colour.

The quote I used feels very apt today.

Lily was such a fabulous, talented artist. She will be missed throughout the whole of the crafting community.
