Craft Stamper Blog Hop – Looking Back

Hey, Hey, Hey Blog Hoppers! Welcome to the Craft Stamper Blog Hop!

And the theme is ‘Looking Back’ and there are lots of giveaways and events going on from today and for the next week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Now, if you have made it here from the lovely Birgit Koopsen’s blog then you are on the right path. If you have just popped in here and want to blog hop with us then start over at the Craft Stamper Blog.

So if you don’t know me my name is Kim Dellow and I’m one of the newbies to the Craft Stamper team. I describe myself as an Artist – Crafter – Blogger and I love all things arty and crafty. I dabble in many styles and love to try lots of different things, I have commitment issues! Or perhaps I’m just indecisive, I’m just not sure! (Did you see what I did there?)

As I’ve mentioned the theme of the Craft Stamper blog hop is ‘Looking Back’ and we are all looking back at things we made or did in 2012. So for my project I thought I would look back over a couple of things that I worked a lot with last year and that is Watercolours, Collage book pages and Ink and dip pens. All things that I love experimenting with.

There is also a touch of wire work and some Gesso stamping, making a simple little tag but full of texture. If you are interested in finding out more about how I made this tag then come back on Monday 4th Feb and I will show you!

Ok so you need a letter from me and here it is: Y

Thanks for looking and hope to see you here on Monday. Have a fun hop and good luck in the giveaways.

Your next blog to hop is the lovely Trish Latimer’s Blog

and if you get lost or want to start from the beginning then it is the Craft Stamper blog you need. Don’t forget to checkout more Craft Stamper Events on their Facebook page and events page.
