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

A quick sketch

Just a really short post to share a quick sketch I did after I'd finished work this evening. If you look at my last but one post you'll see that my friend Paul has been partaking in an EDM challenge - albeit quite casually. I said that I may well join in, in an even more casual way, so I checked the list of things to draw and chose to sketch my foot....mainly because it was there!
Anyway, it's a fast sketch that is very short of accurate...the heel is way too short for a start. Still, it's pretty much my foot....recognisable from the plaster on my toe for a start! I've got nail polish on btw, not bruised toe nails!
I don't mind my feet as they're slim compared to the rest of me and David used to compliment me on their daintiness! As I scribbled on the sketch "I wonder how they've carried me through so many things and on so many journeys". I also wonder why they seem to stay pretty much the same after years of tramping around when other parts of me seem to be dropping off weekly!
Well, if you fancy doing an odd drawing challenge, do check out the links in that last but one post. It was fun to draw something just for the sake of it and not have to keep it under wraps. Talking of which, there should be a few designs that I'll be able to share very soon, though not as many as I'd normally have because, with everything that happened, I just couldn't meet all my deadlines this time.

How very weird! I feel exactly the same about my feet!!! LOL I've never quite understood people who hate their feet as a consequence!!!
Great drawing too ;)

Wahoooo!!!! I'm so over the moon to see you having a go at one of the challenges. And it did make me laugh to read you pulling the drawing to shreds instantly. I told you that all i see in mine are the areas i feel aren't right. I love it that you and many many others are just the same lol. It's a gorgeous sketch and just goes to show how talented you are with a pencil. I can only dream of aspiring to be that good. I'm pleased it was something you enjoyed doing too. It's nice when you can do something creative without stressing. I don't do it nearly enough. Oh and I'm not so sure about drawing my own feet. unlike yours, they are definitely ugly things at the end of my legs. Too many toe squeezing trendy shoes in my youth! lol. Pxx

Hi Lindsay, I think you have a lovely foot (feet) too. Your drawing is amazing, the perspective looks excellent to me, but then we are all our own worst critics. You should do more drawings like this, I saw a sketch once of an old running shoe and thought it would be lovely as a stamp...........A x
