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...

A little peek...




Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for your amazing comments on the final flurry of Funkie Junkie tags, and thank you for your well-wishes.  I'm still hacking away like a 90-a-day smoker on occasion, but so much better than I was, thank you!!

It's sneak peek time once again here at Words and Pictures... this time with a photo that I hope will encourage you to hop over to The Artistic Stamper to take a look.  

After some false starts, lots of changes of direction, and heart-stopping moments when I decided it had all gone horribly wrong and I should just chuck it in, it's turned into one of my favourite makes... whaddaya gonna do?!

Hope you like it...

Gorgeous project Alison so glad your didn't "bin" it. So often I have a project that just look right so instead of the bin I now put them in my bit box and usually find I can salvage all or some of it at a later date....not always though!! lol

Just hopped over to TAS and back here, to let you know how terrific I think your canvas is, Alison!

Sometimes, when our project takes the lead, it feels as if something went wrong - but it only feels like that as long as I fight and try to force things. Once I let go and follow what is there already - everything turns out just great! (well, most of time *giggle).
I can see why this is one of your new favourites. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that background with its own universe in it.

Hugs,
Claudia xx

Shirley Chillman said...

Did I read the word bin in your Artistic Stamper post. So glad you didn't it is an amazing piece of artwork.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

Mary Elizabeth said...

Oh wow!! I loved this journey. I am enthralled by the harlequin pattern in the background (so glad you clear embossed it and that it lasted through the color spray blitz :) ) It really anchors this piece and from the photos, it looks like concrete paving stones in someones garden. For me, its the perfect backdrop for that gorgeous kraft tag. Alison ... love where your new year's creativity is taking you :) -- Mary Elizabeth

Kezzy said...

Wow Alison this is gorgeous, I loved the way it came together. I'm sorry I haven't commented in a while, but I have been really poorly. It's great to feel well again. I have lots of posts to category up with lol, but I can't wait to read them all as it looks like you have been super busy. Kezzy :-) xxx
