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

Blog Candy artwork

Hello folks, and welcome to the new followers who have recently joined. I had a terrific time in Thame and at A Maze of Memories in Long Crendon on Saturday. It was a very busy day with lots of ladies joining in a make n take using alcohol inks and my fairy stamps. Here's a picture of some of them hard at work...concentration on every face! Everyone was so friendly that it was a pleasure and I was kept topped up with fresh cups of fruit tea all day...thanks ladies! It's a beautiful part of the country and I had a few hours looking round Thame itself on Friday. Even though it was pouring with rain I really enjoyed having a good long walk and it blew the cobwebs away that's for sure! So, hello to all the ladies that I met on Saturday and just to let you know that the ink came off my hands by about Monday!Anyway, I'm posting a couple of photos of the picture that I've created for the Blog Candy. Hope you like it. I decided on a Fairy as I think these appeal to most of us. She's quite a "modern" fairy I suppose, with her stripey tights and all! Her wings are slightly glittered and she's attired in some of my favourite colours of lilac and teal. I've put her into a plain black frame and the mat around the picture is from the Tom Holtz Vintage Shabby paper stash. Ha ha, sorry, I meant Tim not Tom!!! Here's a closer look...and this is the finished piece. So, if you haven't already left a comment, remember to do so by the 14th when David will pick a random winner.
I'm off down to Bury St Edmunds on Friday for my demonstration at The Stamp Hut on Saturday. I'll be using the Melt Pot with UTEE and Beeswax as well as EK Success punches, stamps etc. I'll be making cards, Christmas decorations and jewellery, so hope you can call in if you're in the vicinity. Lindsay

I recently met up with you at Wilsmlow Garden Centre - I am the one who hates grunge, but you are starting to convert me. I have now bought myself some alcohol inks, just need to pluck up the courage to actually open them and have a go!
