Creative expressions stamp designed by Sam Poole
Hi my blogger friends. I dont like to blog without a pic to show you and I must be honest that I havent done as muxh crafting lately as I should have done. This is a stamp designed by Sam Poole and I just love the zentangle effect. I love sentangle and this one is a big cheat as its done for you so you only have to colour. I coloured mine with various shades of beige, brown and peach pro markers and then highlighted some areas with a white pen. I distressed the edges with my favourite scattered straw, wild honey and then weathered wood. i made sure thatI didnt go right up to the owl so it left a halo around ti. I then stamped with chicken wire in brown courderoy and drew faux stiches around the edge. I finished of with words off a JOFY stamp.x
On Saturday I went down to Suzicraft in Stockton as Sue and Tom were hosting a demo day with Kay Halliwell Sutton of Indigo Blue. Well I cant say how fantastic a day it was. Great hosts and fabulous company . Amazing demos. I even saw my pal Sam there who I havent seen for ages for it was a perfect day. Here are a few photos I took of her great work.
I had a lovley chat with Kay and we talked about our name as its not a very common one but we said how we have met more in the crafting world than in the rest our life so it must be a creative name. lol.x What was really interesting is that we discovered during our chat that we were both named after our grandfathers favourite film actress Kay Francis and she told me that she had discussed this with Kay Carley and she also was named after her. I think we should start up a Kay Francis appreciation society. hah.x
Well thats all for me today. Hope you all keep well.
