Making The Most Of Your Monochromes And A WIP

Who is up for a bit of contemporary monochrome? In this month’s Simply Cards and Papercraft, issue 101, I have a bold and beautiful, contemporary look article going on with the gorgeous Tiddly Inks Wryn range and BasicGrey papers.

You can see a sneak of it on the cover.

Isn’t she cute? She is Tiddly Inks Wryn Grow A Little Love and great fun to colour.

Hope you like the article but I know you will like the freebie this month! It is a beautiful Prima Paper pack and Chipboard pieces – oh yeah, you read me right!

Before you hop off I just wanted to share some playing with stamps and oil pastels from my art journal.

There are lots of layers of gesso and stamping with stamps from Prima and Kaisercraft.

Plus colour from acrylic paint and the vivid luxury of yummy oil pastels to colour the Ranunculus Fields stamp from Stampendous.

You can’t help but love that texture can you? I mean it gets everywhere but it is so sumptuous you have to forgive it!

    I saw these advertised in the previous issue (I haven't picked up the new issue yet – will do on my way home) and they look super. Can't wait to see them in more detail.

    There is craft and there is art; the two intertwine. Then I come to your post, Kim, and I see an artist at work and I know I am 'just' a crafter. But we both make pictures to make people happy. And that is good, isn't it? Enjoy your weekend and your art!
