Craft Room Challenge Post

This is such a last minute posting which is unusual for me to be this last minute. The reason being I have been trying to learn the art of being a lawyer and learn all about the redundancy laws. Self taught! I think I am ready for the big meeting for tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Now on to far happier and joyous happenings. I am trying to choose three items to post for the new design team at Craft Room Challenge

What do you choose?
\
I decided to choose three recent makes that I am particularly pleased with.

The first is this which I created for Art Journey blog and was very pleased to be chosen as a winner in March. 



The second is a creation I made for Stampsmith and again I was a winner with this in March. The gods must have been smiling on me this month. Well it is  my birthday month. Lol.


Although this creation did not have lots of comments I still am very proud and pleased with it. I painted the big wheel and circus tent onto patterned paper. Used some simple home made stamps for the Big Wheel, painted the tent so that the stripes where off set to the actual drawn stripes. Drew the tightrope and then thought it would be fun to add some birds sitting on the end. These were stamped on. The Unicyclist was stamped, coloured, paper pieced, cut out and placed onto the rope. I have used varying sizes of mounting pads on him so that it creates an image that sticks out from the page, flat by the rope and gradated as it goes up.


This is my third choice. A birthday card I made for a dear friend who teachers Fashion in an Art School.
As you know if you have read my blog recently I just love this. I will not repeat myself as I have only recently blog it. Do have a look if you want to read more.

So what do I think I may bring to the team. I hope to bring fun and an un preciousness to my creations but are still full of life. I love to use textures, colours and painted papers. I love to explore and experiment with these ideas and a variety of elements and try to push my boundaries when possible. I often like to combine materials and stitching to my makes and be very playful. I hope that this approach may stimulate and inspire others to try new things and just have a go and enjoy stamping.
