Mixed-media paper crafter; stamper, freelance craft tutor, designer of PaperArtsy JOFY stamps

I found these...

... when I was looking for something else.. and this happens to me a lot! I lose ItemA, can't find it, I lose ItemB and while looking for ItemB I find previously 'lost' ItemA - I lose and find items in rotation!  Like yesterday when I was looking for a moneybox I found a pair of trousers I thought had been taken to the charity shop! yay! - OK so they didn't fit and I still haven't located the moneybox but I still found something that I thought I'd lost so Yay!! (in JoLand this is a good thing! lol) (and bearing in mind we are still living out of 1/2 unpacked boxes this is good!)

aaaaanyhoo that isn't the 'found' that I wanted to show you - I was looking for a photograph (which I'm still looking for) and I found these which I should've shown you much sooner:

These are samples I made for PaperArtsy earlier in the year using the PA Metal Card & Fresco Finish Paints - love the flowers with their 5 layers of metal - an idea that Leandra had for flowers made up of stamped, embossed and painted (with Fresco Finish) layers. Lush! (made into brooches)
The birds on hearts are based on my brooch (seen here) - where I've die cut a heart (PaperArtsy die - obviously - lol) and added stamping and embellishments.  The birds are cut using the new(ish) small bird die. The birds: L to R: Stamped, details embossed onto metal, wiped with Fresco Finish; stamped onto black card & brushed with Perfect Pearls; stamped onto metal, outline embossed - again made into brooches.

Hope your day has been sunny not rainy - mine has seen a bit of both!


  1. Love the hearts they are so pretty! Hope you find the photo you were looking for.... or some other lost things anyway!

  2. Wow. I remember those! The metal pops against the matte fresco acrylics really well!
