About Me

I'm a freelance artist, designer and demonstrator and have been involved in arts and craft my whole life in one way or another. I design stamps for top British company Personal Impressions, under the "Lindsay Mason Designs" brand, as well as papers, templates and other crafting products. I'm a certified Ranger Educator and my first book,"Stamping", was published in 2009. I also design regular projects for Crafts Beautiful magazine and have made guest appearances from time to time on QVC. I've recently joined You Tube under the name of LindsayMason1000 where I'm posting short technique videos and you can buy my paintings and hand crafted pieces from my Etsy shop. My work takes me all around the country demonstrating stamping, papercrafts and general inkiness! When I'm not working, I love gardening, church & community activities, nature watching, journalling, music and theatre and just relaxing at home. Email me at: ljm.design1@virginmedia.com

Lovely day

Hello everyone, it's been a gorgeous day here after a windy evening yesterday, though we did have some snow flurries at lunchtime which came as a surprise! It really does feel like Spring and the crocusses are coming into bloom which is such a cheerful sight. I have, however, been inside all day, preparing my cards for the workshop at Dawn Bibby's Design Studio on Saturday. We are going to be "paper piecing", creating images from shaped paper pieces with a little chalking to create a more dimensional effect. With so many ready made embellishments to use on cards, this is a return to making them from scratch! I'll add some images of the cards on Sunday.
I thought that you might enjoy looking at these pictures of some of Suze Weinberg's works of art that she had on display when I was at Ranger U last year. Her finished pieces are amazing, and very inspirational. I'd love to have more time to work on some pieces like this just for my own enjoyment, but there always seems to be something else on the schedule!
I am just starting work on an exciting new project, but it is top secret at the moment...be sure that I will give all the details on here as soon as I am allowed to! So, I am signing off for now to spend a relaxing evening at home and will post with news of more Candy and pictures as soon as I have sorted them out. Lindsay
