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 Brief Encounter with creativity!

If you have a romantic nature, along with a love of creating, then you might enjoy my workshop next Saturday which is being hosted by Rowan Tree Crafts at the Heritage Centre in Carnforth Railway station....setting of course, to some of the scenes in Brief Encounter....arguably the most romantic film ever made!
We'll be making a triple hanging plaque something like this.....
 ....using my Gilded Layering Technique. The cost of this workshop is £35 which includes lunch. If you fancy joining me, please contact the shop directly to book at Rowan Tree Crafts, 3, Ashtrees Way , Carnforth, Lancashire or telephone 07590605078. Hope to see you there!
Meanwhile, I'm busy with various projects and watching the odd Wimbledon game here and there when I can - I don't think I've managed to see a full match yet! I shall be glued to the men's final a week on Sunday though!
I guess almost everyone enjoyed, or endured (depending on how you feel about it) the thunderstorms over the last few nights. I've enjoyed them but Tara has most definitely endured them....running under a very low cupboard that she can hardly squeeze beneath every time the rumbles start - bless her.
 I had to lie on the floor beside the cupboard so I could try and keep her calm. Thomas isn't bothered by it all really, in fact,he was pestering to go out in at last night....silly thing!
Here are a couple of shots that I managed of the storms - much better with the sound effects though! All viewed through the safety of my conservatory windows!

This was when the whole sky lit up last night...quite eerie considering it was about half past midnight!
Well, I am hoping that the crackle paste I have been using will now be dry, so I shall carry on with my creating!
