Inspired by Lin Brown


Over on the PaperArtsy blog all this month there are party celebrations going on, which only means one thing, special guest designers, loads of give-aways and prizes, but most of all, lots of fun.

So last night it was the turn of the lovely Lin Brown to showcase her absolutely fantastic piece, see here, using her brand new stamps.  As they are brand new, I don't have them, but I will be getting them. Now don't be shocked as they are a set of flowers and vines / leaves, but I can see so many possibilities for them, check them out here.

Anyway back to what I made.  I pretty much followed what Lin did with the background and the arch, but I used the mini 61 for the inside of the arch, used a TH scroll and I die cut a tattered flower in some sort of thickish fabric and stamped a LP face image.  Now Lin said to colour it first, but as I didn't even know if it would work and it was fraying quite a bit, so I left it au naturel!!!

That's scrumptious, Sam. Love the autumnal honey golds, and the texture on the frame looks fab. Love the hit of turquoise inside the arch.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
