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...

Just a quick look...




Hello everyone, lovely to see you!  


So, I promised you rusted muslin, and here it is, but it's sneak peek time only here at Words and Pictures again, I fear.  


If you want to have a look inside this little book, you'll need to head on over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog.


I hope you like what you find there!


Thanks so much for taking the time, and I'll see you again soon.


People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

Alison, your work is always so beautifully done and inspiring. This little mini book is just gorgeous. Love the colors and all of the technique involved in it. The rusted muslin cover is so pretty. I love that weathered look. And the interior pages with their crackled, tissue taped, painted and beautifully stamped pages are so lovely. <3 Candy

Dear Alison, you have created quite beautiful artwork during my absence. One creation is more beautiful than the other.
You know that my daughter and I spent a week in London. It was already the 5th time that I visit this fascinating city. We had a lot of fun and have discovered much news.
I wish you a nice rest of the weekend, my friend.
Hugs MARTINA

Alison, I didnt get around to making a new tag - so I posted the original one. I mentioned you in the blogpost in acknowledgement of the fact that you posted first and inserted a linky-loo to your tag - hope that is okay? If not just give me shout ad I'll take it down - no worries. Have I already told you that this book is tres jolie?

Wow wow absolutely gorgeous, so loving the rust and the crackle. I had a look over on the artistic stamper Blog wow the inside is stunning.It wowouldn't let me comment so I shall pop back later. Do you read the magazine Craft Stamper? The new issue, at the back shows you what's in the next issue and there it says rust on fabric, hmmmmm I thought could Alison be a new designer for them? You certainly would be fantastic at it :-) Kezzy xxx
