Robin Christmas Card

Morning everyone, hope you are well.

Today I am popping by with a seasonal card using my Robin and Nuthatch A6 Stamp Set.

I love the vintage tones on this piece which I created with Distress Oxide Inks. This card is part of one of my on line workshops. There are several cards in this workshop along with a book.

This close up shows the detail of the background and the beautiful layered elements.

I added a few stars to the backdrop and then added touches of background stamping with my background stamp from my A5 Follow Your Own Path.

I now have another card for Christmas to add to my selection.

 See you all soon.

A Little Bit of an Update

 Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping well.

Its been a long while since I have posted on my blog. Why? I was under the impression that a lot of blogs now receive less visits and that most people now don't visit a blog. Following a comment from a lovely Facebook Friend, Jennifer, I thought I would revisit this. 

What do you like to see on a blog post. I post frequently on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and often post my artwork on all these platforms. Is it still worthwhile posting here?

Over the past few months I have continued with my passion of designing stamps and gardening and in that repsect nothing much has changed, apart from the fact I have aged of course.

I will add a few links to my recent YouTube videos below, just in case there is anyone who visits here and may have missed my posts.

In the video above I create a journal page, something I love creating, I love the freedom of just creating for the joy of creating and I also love the fact that I can look back on each spread for inspiration in the future. 

Another passion, creating cards, and this one is a favourite, I love the vintage tones in the background with the pop of colour in the flower and pot.

Something else I love doing is mixing new releases with old and this video showcases that perfectly.

The video is part of my snippets range of videos where I create more paired back pieces. I am loving creating these.

I have also been creating a series of Christmas Cards and these have been a joy and also means I am ahead of the game for once and no more rushing around thinking up ideas at the last minute.
