Love ATCs

Good morning everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
Today I'm sharing the ATCs that I made for the UK Stampers March ATC swap, the theme was love.


I used a stencil on the background with distress inks and added some music tissue tape and stamping. The main image was stamped onto a separate piece of card - I think the lovely heart stamp was free in a magazine.

Thank you for dropping by, enjoy your day.

Mad Tea Party Journal Page

Good morning all, it's a lovely bright morning here - a bit chilly though.

I'm linking my page to the Art Journal Journey challenge the theme is Magical Mystery Tour.

My old London bus whooshed me through the swirly tunnel to visit the Mad Hatter's Tea Party,


I decided to have a go at a digital page and for the background I used one of my photographs of a field of buttercups.


I added images from a My Craft Studio programme called Make A Date. When I was happy with the result I printed it and glued into my journal.


I painted the swirl with white acrylic paint and stamped the Emma Godfrey swirl with black Archival ink. I stamped the Paperartsy bus onto shrink plastic with Stazon and shrunk it, I glued it to the page. I cut some words out of an old Alice In Wonderland book, stamped some Indigo Blu words and a Non Sequitur clock and added them to the page. I doodled round the edge of the page.


Thank you for dropping by to take a look.

Art Journal Journey - Magical Mystery Tour

Good morning everyone, I'm so happy and thrilled to be hosting this months Art Journal Journey challenge, the theme that I've chosen was inspired by the Beatles song Magical Mystery Tour. Imagine there's a magical bus or train or whatever mode of transport you choose and it's there to take you on your mystery tour - it could take you anywhere, into the future or the past, into one of your favourite books, a country you've dreamed of going to, anywhere your imagination takes you.
I've chosen and old red London bus as my transport and for my first tour it whisked me away to see the sights of London - I wonder where it will take me next.


I painted the background with gesso and acrylic paint and stamped some images onto tissue paper and glued them to the page with matte medium. I printed some photos of London and stamped some images onto white card, I cut them out and glued them to the page. I gave the page a coat of matte medium and when it had dried I used my pitt pens to colour the tissue paper images.

I hope you can to enter the challenge - thank you for looking, have a great weekend. xxx Hazel.

Good morning everybody. It was a lovely springlike day yesterday and so nice to go out without a coat, looks like it might be the same today.

Today I'm sharing with you a card that I made for the UK Stampers February card challenge, here is the inspiration picture we were given.


This is the card I made.


The background was made by sprinkling some brushos onto a stencil and spraying it with water. I stamped the Stampers Anonymous flower onto the card and water coloured it with inktense sticks. I added the ribbon and matted it onto some mauve card and then onto a white card blank. I coloured three white flowers with the inktense sticks and fastened them together with a brad then I added the sentiment.
Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely day,
