Four seasons project

Got back today from the artsycraft event! Amazing, awesome, will post pictures of the projects asap as my lovely daughter has lent me a camera.

Here however is a project I am sharing with my sister. We have challenged each other to create four interpretations of the seasons in any medium not more than 10" square.
Little sis is doing some beautiful embroidery, but I have decided to use my stamps and autumn urban sceneto make it a little more difficult I am trying to recreate urban scenes. Here I have used paperbag studios, paper artsy and Tim Holtz stamps, distress inks, Martha Stewart railling punch and Tim's alterations die and embossing folder, plus a small leaf punch I have had for years!
My current challenge of winter is proving difficult as I want the pictures to carry on from each other (rather like that scene in Notting Hill where Hugh Grant walks through the market!).
I shall post it shortly, I'm struggling with the snow at present!
Back soon with photo's of my alteration box!


  1. Love your latest creasion Barb, if only it were larger it would sell for sure. Sorry to hear that you are struggling with the snow at the moment, is it pretty deep where you are? I look forward to your next posting with excitement and anticipation.

  2. Lovely piece, love all the attention to detail. Look forward to seeing more. Tracy Evans x

  6. Hello Barb, it's a pleasure to meet you, you'll soon get the hang of blogging, google makes it easy for us once we've had a bit of practice.
    Have you got your blog set up to send you an email everytime you get a comment on any current or previous posts?
    It took me a while to realise you could do this.

    You have captured the feel of autumn perfectly, I love the way you have mixed so many different stamps together seamlessly. A brilliant creation :-)
    Plus I just love your previous inventive post of Moth Fab, my favourite picture is Moth Fab's "invigoration" gotta love googley eyes LOL!
    You're funny and unique Barb, and I do so hope you get to love blogging because I'm selfishly sure the pleasure will be all mine reading your posts!
