  1. Lovely cover...just popped over to Calico Craft Parts to take a look. Great effect on the background. The art deco wooden shapes and the wooden "Journal" letters pull the piece together.

  19. This is just beautiful, Astrid! This is going to be a lovely AJ cover some day, but it's so pretty just as it is on its own :) :) Love that first layer of texture you put down on the door with your text stamping into it--that's really cool!! :) :) XOXO-Shari

  21. Hi, Astrid - don't know how this one slipped by me!! Beautiful - love the colors and those Calico Craft Parts are stunning!! LOVE that script stamping into the black gesso - fabulous texture and still looks like script. And so happy to know I am not the only one who changes back and forth on colors midstream, lol! You've ended up with a beautiful make in the end, so definitely worth the dithering! xxx Lynn

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
