A LITTLE BIT MARY JANE

Morning all. I hope you had a good weekend. Here's a little crafty morsel to start off the week....

While I wasn't consciously thinking Mary Jane Chadbourne when I started this  project, I can see it has headed, well and truly in that direction (though clearly not a patch on Mary's own fabulous work, it goes without saying..).



I started out with this tag clutching a handful of cool chipboard tags and shapes, some Dinky stencils and a box full of great stamps by PaperArtsy. If you look closely you can see one of Emma Godfrey's new larger word stamps, Darcy's wings from one of her new sets, zig zag's from one of Clare Lloyd's early releases and chimneys (yes I did say chimneys) from Darcy's fab steampunk buildings set as arms (YES! ARMS!) Don't you think the tops of the chimneys look like frilly cuffs :oD  Oh! And I used the stars from that set too. I used one of Lin Brown's bird wings for the beard. I thought it looked a bit like a pharoah's beard... and the hands are from a Lynne Perella Christmas set. No one was safe :oD



Have a great week.

  1. This is rather special too, Lauren and what a brilliant idea to use those chimneys as arms/sleeves - a very creative and off the wall take on your project

  6. Brilliant stamp combining to create another quirky character - so inventive. I only know of Mary Jane Chadbourne via other people (Julie Ann for one)... at some point I must go exploring!
