PaperArtsy #3UP Week

Hi - I'm sure many of you will already be aware of the wonderful PaperArtsy, they do some absolutely amazing stamps, and also papers and other altered art supplies.  I am an avid reader of their blog which showcases some wonderful technique by some very talented crafters.

At the end of each four month period on the blog PaperArtsy hold #3UP week, each night of this week 3 volunteers are chosen to showcase a piece of work using one of their newest releases.  Well this year when PaperArtsy asked for volunteers I thought I'd give it a go - never expecting to be chosen of course - but as they say 'nothing ventured ~ nothing gained'!

Well to cut a long story short - I got picked!!  A beautiful set of Lynne Perella stamps (LPC027) dropped through my letter box at the beginning of April.  That was roughly when the panic set in too!! What could I possibly produce that would do justice to these lovely stamps?  And, what had I been thinking to dare apply in the first place?

I do really love Lynne Perella's artwork and these stamps especially, I feel they are very bold and striking in their own right, so I decided to showcase them on a 6" x 6" canvas.  Here is a little sneak peak but to view it fully you need to pop over to the PaperArtsy blog.  It's really worth a visit to see all the wonderful creations of my fellow #3UPpers.  I'm sure you will find some more inspiring blogs to follow along with!

Thanks for reading,
