I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Artistic Stamper Guest Designer II

Hello everyone, and welcome, with an especially big welcome to the new followers.  You've climbed aboard at a very exciting time - there's crazy stuff going at the moment...  Keep your eyes peeled for big news right here at noon today (how's that for building suspense?!), but right now I'm here to let you know that my second piece as February's Guest Designer for The Artistic Stamper is now on display over at their blog.


I can only give you a sneak peek here at Words and Pictures, so I would love it if you had time to pop over there and see what I've been up to...  If you want to know what's inside the suitcase, you're just going to have to, I'm afraid!

The next few days will reveal why I've been a little bit sluggish getting round to visit you all (quite a lot on my craft desk at the moment), but as the dust settles I hope to be able to resume normal service.  We thank you for your patience at this time, and apologise for any inconvenience caused!

Happy Crafting (and hope maybe to see you again later today!)...

An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why.
William Faulkner

Happiness is a matter of one's most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.
Iris Murdoch

And this one will make sense when you have visited the project!
Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.  Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
C.G. Jung

And I hope they won't mind taking the extra click to reach it, but I'd like to enter this in the Tie It On Readers Art Quest at Unruly Paper Arts this month.

Love this - so very cool! Just came from The Artistic Stamper - the mechanics of the suitcase are sensational, but the star is the series of tags. Love how you developed the story - the tags are just sensational. Magnificent piece of work, Alison!

Hugs,
Linda
