A Little Birdie

Hellooooo!! I'm back again with another detailed look at one of my samples that I created for my latest stamp release for PaperArtsy this time using my Spring Trees stamp set EKC16 along with the grass stamp set EKC17 and a few of my minis - Birdhouse (EM25), Butterflies (EM26) and Swirl (EM31).

PaperArtsy's Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics were used throughout.

You can see that I chose to add the little birdie and butterflies afterwards so that I could shape them to give them movement and dimension.

I even added the suggestion of fallen spring blossom to the base of all the trees. Stamping the tall grasses along the base of the panel is a great way of adding depth to a scene too - it was this sort of scenario I had in mind when I was designing them.

All of my stamps are now available to buy on my very own website!!

I have several teaching dates coming up throughout March and April which you can find under my Classes tab but if anyone is interested in booking me for a class, workshop, demo or event please do get in contact with me via any of my social media.

Hi everyone. Today I thought I'd share in detail one of my creations that I recently did using a combination of my new stamps for January 2018.

This 6x6" greyboard panel was created using PaperArtsy's Fresco Finish paints along with my stamp sets EKC12, EKC13 and EKC17 combined with my fabulous matching stencil PS075 and my cute little bird mini stamp EM25!! 

 This little guy is just hilarious!! 

 The daisies are from EKC13 and the dotty twigs are from EKC17.

 This really shows the shadows that I have created using the matching stencil PS075.

You will see that my little bird makes an appearance regularly on my samples!!

All of my stamps and stencils can now be bought directly from me at - I offer FREE postage to anywhere in the UK on orders over £20 which equates to just buying one stamp set :).

I'll be back again soon with some more inspiration for you.
