Creative Blog Hop!

Last week, I was tagged by the wonderful Katy in a Creative Blog Hop!

The idea of the blog hop is to share a little of our creative process with you all, and then tag others that inspire!
So without further ado, I'll get on and answer the questions....

1) What am I working on?
At the moment I'm working on a Masterclass for Craft Stamper and a class for the Craft Barn. Here's a pic of my art room - take a deep breath....

Here's a close up of one of the bisque tiles using PaperArtsy flowers::

Love stamping and colouring bisque - if you've never tried it, you should come along at the end of August.
Can't show you the Masterclass stuff - you'll have to read the November issue!
PS The ivy in the picture isn't in a pot - it's actually growing through from the outside! I usually pull it out but it always grows back.

Also been having a play with bleach and masking tape - very easy but effective. Love this building stamp from Indigo Blu:


2) How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I don't quite know what genre I fit - I love trying out anything that's inky, painty, messy and colourful. I've long since learned that much as I love other people's work/style, I'm often just no good at it. However hard I try to be elegant, clean and sophisticated, as far as I'm concerned, less is never more! Give me colour and lots of it!

3) Why do I create/write what I do?
Because I love creating and experimenting - it's totally absorbing and far far better than housework!

4) How does your writing/creative process work?
Once I've decided on product and stamps, I have to get the colours sorted - I'm not happy until I know my colour palette.

I am tagging Gio in Italy today, please hop on over and visit her blog to see all the fabulousness on offer! 
She makes some fantastic stuff, always a little bit different and out of the box. Love it!
Next week, she will be answering the questions and tagging more people, so bookmark her and pop back!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Helen, I love your work and I love Gio's one too, so you made a perfect choice (though Gio didn't reply 'yes' to me because you were the first to 'tag' herhaha). Great to see your table full of paints and wonderful cards using PA stamps! And I love your masterclasses in Craft Stamper magazine :). Thanks for your beautiful and so inspiring art. Coco x
