Something...Out Of The Ordinary!!

Hey guys :) Firstly I want to say thank you to all the wonderful ladies that left me a congratulations comment for my new DT. You guys rock :)

Ok, down to business. I have something a little unusual to share. Every now and again I create something which doesn't fall into the scrapbooking category and can be quite out there. More often that not, these never get seen by anyone who doesn't enter my craft room :)

But today I feel brave so I shall share. This canvas is called 'This Heart' and is about vulnerability  ,the very reason why I don't show more of this type of thing. In many ways, this kind of work is exposing more of yourself ( in a metaphorical way of course lol) than any scrapbook layout even with lengthy journalling...


I don't know if anyone is interested in the 'process' so you can skip all this bit if you like. The title comes from one point of inspiration, which were the lyrics to a song called 'This Heart' by Mary Lambert. Which is quite soft and melancholy. The other, is the opposite, taken from imagery from the film clip and song, First Of The Year by Skillrex. I love how the film clip is totally entwined in the song, which is what I wanted to achieve. Yes my taste in music is as varied as my creations :)



It is a 12 x 12 canvas which I painted using gesso, acrylic paint and coffee ( yes coffee!)...


My chest features some vintage watch parts I purchased from the UK. Here I am showing you my 'inner workings' and of course exposing my heart.


I thought about adding other techniques and embellishments to this. But felt like I really wanted everything that was on it to have some sort of relevancy. 

So what do you think? Pretty weird hey :) 

And last but not least. Paperhaus are having a publication call for their summer issue. A great opportunity to have your work featured along side some AMAZING scrappers and see your work in this gorgeous publication....

  10. yeah I love it too, thank you for sharing your 'heART' with us, it is wonderful, I have just started following and so glad, I am not long paper crafting and started making cards which I realised were becoming complete works, but often find myself paralysed almost with fear - stuff laid out but afraid to start or get to stage and afraid to put paint over something... it is wonderful to have other people share their process. thank you.

  16. Really striking! I love your background paint work, but mostly, I love all the old clocks showing your inner workings. They way in which you have composed it, is just amazing. I love also that you look like you belong on that canvas - your face and expression, your hair and the way it falls - everything together is just awesome! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!
