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

Apologies

I must apologise for not posting before now, and for not adding any pictures as I'd promised. We had to cancel the workshop on Sunday, so I didn't get to take photos and it has been a blur of activity here with me trying to catch up with projects and samples for this weekend in Scotland. I am all packed up now and ready for the long haul tomorrow. It's taking over seven hours to Inverness, which I had thought was an inordinately long time...only when I checked my tickets did I see that I have almost three hours to wait in Glasgow! So, if you are in Glasgow station tomorrow between 1.30pm and 4.30pm and see someone in Starbucks, surrounded by empty coffee cups, it may well be me! I shall definitely need to take a couple of book with me!
I've made lots of samples and I'll photograph them and be sure to put some up here when I return. I've been making some Tartan designs using Alcohol inks to go with the Scottish stamps that are one range I will be showcasing, so I'll give details of how these are done, as it's a useful technique.
Now I say this every time, but if you are coming to one of my demonstrations this weekend, please do bring an ATC to swap with me! Thanks again Sheila for the lovely Easter one that you sent me - it has pride of place in my album!
Well, time for a cup of Peach and Tangerine tea now and a relaxing evening before the mad few days ahead! Oh I have new dates added to the demonstration list too, so do check them out - I'll be in Chester-Le-Street, Carlisle and Blackpool.....not all on the same day though! Speak to you when I get back, Lindsay

Have a safe journey North of the Border Lindsay! I'm glad you like your ATC. I remember Glasgow station well - there are a few different drinking places you can try. Hope all goes well. xxxx
