VIOLA .....

So nice of you to leave comments on my last 'results' post - the Challenge entries certainly were fantastic - every single one of them!  One of the 'chosen ones' in the Challenge was a very talented lady by the name of Viola, who's Blog I'm sure many of you will have already discovered?!  Viola has been on my special bookmarked list for a long time, and her work never disappoints.  You will find her Blog Here, and you will really enjoy having a look around.

I thought tonight I would have a little 'Focus On' post to show you a few of Viola's fantastic projects, particularly, of course, those that recently featured Crafty Individuals rubber stamps.  I love textiles, lace and trims, and the following show fabric shabby chic craftwork at its best don't you think?

This is the divine book cover collage that appeared in my last post -



And next an adorable card design - just love that feather!



And here we have some gorgeous decorated storage baskets -




Gorgeous, and so useful too!  Stamps featured above are Parisian Romance, CI-260, Hummingbird Collage, CI-205, Little Perched Wren, CI-191, Little Blue Bird, CI-200, Milano Bird, CI-179, Venezia Bird, CI-180,  and Seven Cheeky Songbirds, CI-230.

Thanks to Viola for letting me share the above with you - all very inspiring and very lovely.

Back soon,

Jean x

Hi Jean, I found Viola's work on Pinterest. It is absolutely gorgeous. They are projects that you can not stop looking at and then going back later for another look. A lovely way to show case CI stamps. They suit this style perfectly. Thanks for sharing. Very inspiring.
Hugs from Spain to you and to Malcolm.
