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...

Who Can Resist PaperArtsy?






Who can resist PaperArtsy?  Not me!  Even though I'm away from my craft desk for most of this year, I couldn't resist jumping in for at least one of the PaperArtsy challenges... so yes, it's Resists for me.

And I'm keeping it simple with some fantastically detailed Minis... sometimes all you need is some ink and a great stamp or two.














If you've time, do hop over to the PaperArtsy blog and check out the details of my little quartet of ATCs... hopefully that's an irresistible offer!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon.

Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.

Absolute fantastic ATCs! They look like the Japanese Gyotaku except you made it with fish skeleton and not with flesh and blood fish :-D I love them!

All four are perfection in their own right Alison, but the last one not only the colours but the be fearless sentiment seemed so perfect for the stamped image.

Brilliant little ATCs, Alison! I've been coveting these stamps as well - might just have to indulge after seeing them here = especially fond of the zoo-ologist's musty drawer concept! The script is a fabulous addition as well - love them! And welcome home! xxx Lynn
