New Header And New Challenge At FSC

Happy 2018 to all of blogland and I sure hope that this year will be a good one for each of you.

Over the years I have turned more and more to paints in my artwork so what better way to start my first blog post of the year but with a new look.

The header has been designed by me and I think it depicts the work I do a lot better than my last header, hope you like it?

Saturday saw the first class of the year with my lovely ladies, Phil, Maria, Theresa and New Phil (we call her this because of there being two Phil’s but she is by no means new anymore).

These four ladies have been attending my Saturday classes for years now and we have such fun (as well as some serious moments of artwork).

It’s my turn to kick off the theme this month at FSC and my choice is an ‘ANYTHING GOES’ challenge, so I combined my FSC piece with showing them how to make a wall hanging with lots of yummy stamping and colouring.

I have used lots of stamps on this piece and all are from PaperArtsy with some added doodles from me.

PaperArtsy are up there amongst the top of my go to stamps.


Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop is sponsoring FSC and they will be offering a stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

Below are some of the stamps used.

    I love your layout Shirley, PA stamps are also among my favourites and I do have lots, although mainly the Hot picks. (why oh why aren’t there any more coming out?!!!). Your new banner looks great and yes it’s a good thing to change it with out evolving styles. I should do the same. Hope you’re having a nice weekend. xx
