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

Nightie night

Just a quick post tonight before I head up to Cleethorpes tomorrow for my date at M B Crafts. Looking forward to meeting everyone on Saturday at the morning demonstration and the afternoon workshop. In the morning I'll be using Alcohol and Distress inks along with my Silhouette Fairy and Castle stamps. Here's some of the cards I was making in the last couple of days..........the darker card on the top right includes Snowcap alcohol ink blended with some of the clear colours over black gloss card. It makes for a very dramatic effect....and it's a change from the purples and blues that I just can't seem to break free from!!!
I'm hoping it's a nice sunny day tomorrow so I can have a walk along the beach tomorrow afternoon. It's a few years since I last visited Cleethorpes, but I clearly remember the wonderful promenade and the sandy beach that had so many seabirds. If it's not too freezing I may even risk a sneaky paddle - probably not though!
So, I am off for an early night now. I've been really tired over the last week so I've been getting to bed around 10 o'clock which very early for me. I'm sure it will do me good though and the bracing winds on the East coast should blow the last cobwebs away! I'll take some snaps whilst I'm away and will share them with you after the weekend. Night all!
