A Roundup of Bewitching Halloween Projects

October 9th, 2018

One of my favorite things about Halloween is the witches! Some people like the lovely side of Halloween like the good ole jack-o’-lantern and friendly ghosts, while others enjoy the spookier side of the holiday. But I feel that witches can really go either way! There are good witches, bad witches, and even mysterious ones.

Let Nature Be Your Calming Breath: A Handmade Journal by Lynne Moncrieff + Your Chance to Win a $130 Gift Set of Stamps!

September 21st, 2018

Please join us in welcoming guest artist Lynne Moncrieff to Somerset Place! Today, she’s sharing a peek inside her handmade journal process to spark some new inspiration, including a quick video to give you a closer look!

Eco dying/tea staining, naturally has me leaning towards creating nature-themed projects with the stained items. It is such a satisfactory process, especially when utilizing found/re-cycled papers; although other favorites to dye/stain include rice paper, unperforated teabag paper, and large, self-fill teabags.

The dyed/stained items can be incorporated into a wealth of projects — a particular favorite of mine is books/booklets. The book I created for this post is simply constructed from an A3 sheet of handmade, sugar cane paper which was dyed/stained. A very humble structure which, with the addition of flaps and folds to tuck mini booklets inside or stitched paper pockets where a tag can nestle, makes a simply constructed book into an art adventure, with an abundance of areas ripe for journaled thoughts or possibly sketches relating to nature.

Deeply inspired by nature with my Lynne’s Wildflowers stamps, alongside stamped Affirmations influenced by my thoughts on nature, this is a book to slip into its pouch, with a favorite pencil or charcoal stick. As musings are jotted into the book, enjoy some quiet time and let nature be your calming breath.
