Well I am so excited that my post from yesterday is up on Eileen Hull's blog today. I have been excited since she asked me about three weeks ago, if I would guest and have struggled to keep it quiet.
I think it's safe to say that I'm quite addicted to her designs now, the dies are just what I like and quite different from many that we see on the market. I love three dimensional art more and more, it's probably overtaken card making for my first love and when I pick up one of the dies to use, the creative juices really flow...of course a lot of the ideas are so 'out there' they are impossible, but at least they are there.
I was so pleased you all enjoyed my projects yesterday. The photo journal was a labour of love because it was about our pets, but in a way I was pleased that I had such a short time to make it. If I hadn't had a deadline, it may well still be awaiting the first photo or piece of journalling!
For the garden project, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I used to (still do but you don't see it so much now) really admire the country style art work of quilter and crafter Debbie Mumm and her designs inspired me with the colours and painted elements, as well as placing the flowers and bees on sticks. In fact, the bee, butterfly and ladybird stamps are all Debbie's stamps - wooden stamps- from quite a few years ago. Remember when Tom and I made the wooden stamp rack a few months ago? Well as I placed them on the shelf, I knew a project to include them wouldn't be long coming!
Here are a few more photos from the journal as promised:
Thank you again for your comments yesterday, if you have time do pop over and have a look at Eileen's blog...maybe leave a comment against my post today, or just have a look at all the fabulous inspiration from Eileen and her design team.
If I don't make it back here over the weekend, have a good and sunny one!
Love and Hugs,
