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...

It takes two...




Two?  Yes, two... First of all, it's the second sneak peek today.

Sneak peek number one was for my Artistic Stamper creation which I'd love you to see if you missed it earlier, but I'm also thrilled to say that I'm back as an occasional guest on the PaperArtsy blog this evening with a creation that uses just two paint colours.

So here's sneak peek number two...  If you'd like to see what happened when I challenged myself to just "take two", do hop on over to PaperArtsy - I'd love to know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by today (stopping and hopping, I hope!), and I'll be back at midnight!

Wonderful. I never thought to use a canvas that way and it works so well. So do the two colours-love all of it.

Great quotes today and I am sure the one you say you use most is very true. Thank goodness I am the latter :)

Love Chrissie x

Hi Alison. I have just been over for a look at this ~ and it is amazing!!! The colours look brilliant and the whole idea of turning the canvas around adds so much texture. This is a stunning piece - I think PaperArtsy knew exactly what they were doing when they invited you along! Great work.
