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...

I am... over at Artistic Stamper!

Hello everyone.  I am... absolutely blown away after two weekends of amazing workshops - Andy Skinner last week, and France Papillon for the last two days.  So much inspiration, so many great techniques, and some fab projects that I hope to share with you very soon.  But for now I'll just say a huge "WOW!" and get back to business.

It's sneak peek time again here at Words and Pictures.  I am... inviting you over to The Artistic Stamper to have a look at a journalling page.


I am... so enjoying playing with the new Distress Stain Sprays, as well my usual wealth of crackly textures.  I hope you'll have time to hop over and take a look.

Hope you've been enjoying lots of crafty inspiration of one sort of another, and I'll see you again soon either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland.  Have a wonderful week!

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.

It was great to spend the weekend with you, crafting France style, she was amazing, and so was what you produced!

Crackle on top of paste? That's like the cherry on top of the fudge or the chocolate on the strawberry or the nut in the fudge or the yin to the yang...
This post made me happy!
What a delight :)

I can't believe that it's so long since I commented on any of your posts Alison, I have been dropping in but even post Christmas has been a little hectic! I loved the texture you created on this and I've always loved this shade of blue mixed with the rusty brown. Attending an Andy Skinner workshop is on my list of things to do and a workshop with France is in my dreams....can't complain too much though because I was at the Finnabair one the same weekend!
