I thought I'd bring together a series of projects using stencils with various techniques. For this series of cards I used the Towns & Hills A5 stencils from Claritystamp.For the first one I used a brayer clean up sheet as a starting point (see HERE for step by step).

Please feel free to join in or just visit via Stamping Ground, where Julia keeps us all organised.My desk this week shows the latest additions to my Tilly Tea Dance felted picture collection.

This month's prompts over on Tag It Tuesday are: Make and use shaving foam marbled paper, add a dog image, add something cut from a magazine and build up texture with a palette knife and any medium. this month's colours are eggplant/plum and grey. As you can see I used all prompts and colours.

Welcome to my contribution to the 12th anniversary edition of WOYWW and many congratulations to Julia at Stamping Ground for coming up with the idea so many years ago and keeping things going. Please do join in with the celebrations over at home base.As you can see, my desk is not much different to usual. My sketchbook is centre stage ready for my #drawingaday. I have actually made an ATC for my PIF (hope everyone is sitting down with that news). I haven't got a postcard yet but intend to source one tomorrow. I am hoping that we may be able to have an in person crop later in the year and I will have lots of tags ready for swapping at that point.

I started working in my second Daler Rowney sketchbook at the start of this month in my quest to draw every day in 2021. Here is this month's offerings so far.
For this drawing I admit that I followed a tutorial (see HERE) as this prompt took me way out of my comfort zone. I usually avoid drawing people if I can.

For this fun and cheerful card I combined the new Feathered Friends Miniatures from Claritystamp with the sentiment from the larger version.

Another week, another Wednesday and another WOYWW contribution (please visit Stamping Ground where Julia will enlighten you about it). Only one week until the 12th anniversary.My desk looks as it does every morning. Ready for the #drawingaday in my sketchbook. I do sometimes do a pencil sketch the day before if I am going to be busy before work, but the inking is always done on the day itself.

For my second sample made with the Claritystamp Offer of the Week, I used the individual foliage stamps rather than the wreath to make this panel card for a birthday.
