Hi lovely visitors,
I'm a few days late posting my challenge piece for the #3up sters PaperArtsy Birthday Challenge because I was away last weekend at two wonderful days of learning and getting very inky and messy with the fabulous
Finnabair (Ania Diabrowka). The workshops were hosted by Snazzy's and I got to spend time with my lovely friend Elaine as well as some twitter friends old and new and my design team colleague. I'm still catching my breath so haven't had time to photograph my projects but will blog them as soon as I can. In the meantime I'm going to show you my PA challenge piece.
August saw the 10th birthday of the fab company known as PaperArtsy and there has been lots of lovely treats and fantastic design inspiration over on their blog all throughout August rounded off this week with some fantastic creations from a group of intrepid crafters who love the PA stamps and other products and who set themselves up by volunteering for Leandra's #3up sters, lol!
I forgot to take a proper photo of what arrived in the envelope Leandra sent me to work with so this is what I had left when I'd finished, ;D.
I have to confess these are not my style of stamps at all and really had me scratching my head but after much deliberation this is what I came up with......
I altered a wooden icon frame, creating a little scene to place in the aperture part. I won't give details on how I did it as they are here on the PaperArtsy blog if you wish to see more details. It's well worth popping over to see what the others taking part created. There are some fab designs spread over the whole PaperArtsy range of stamps and you need to go right back to last Saturday's post to see the first ones who kicked off the challenge using stamps from Ink and the Dog range.
and a final close up .......
That's all for now folks. Till next time .......
