Notelets of Inspiration by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello Creative Friends

Today I'm sharing not so much the process of creativity but a collection of
inspirational notelets created using stamps designed by Lynne Moncrieff 
alongside off cuts of distress oxide mop ups and a little black card.

On to an area of the Distress Oxide mop up the feather is stamped, embossed and cut out.
The words have been manipulated on an acrylic block to replicate the flow of written 
words on paper then stamped directly onto the card.

This piece of background reminded me of the world from above, the colours 
seemed to pair up perfectly with the Affirmation.

It may be just me but this mop up seemed to map out parts of the world ??
Another well matched image alongside those words...

Stamping the heart over little splashes of colour a strip is cut and 
mounted onto black card, the sentiment speaks for itself.

...and finally the colours of this background look just like an artists palette.

Paired up with the jar of paint brushes the image was stamped twice. Cut out the jar
was embossed with clear embossing powder giving a glazed effect to the glass vessel.
Layered over it's sister image it was then mounted on top of those bold words.

The importance of encouragement and kind words I never forget, especially to those 
creative folk around me who bring so much life and colour to my world.

I'm sure we all know some one who would appreciate a little notelet just like these..

Until next week,
Take care everyone

Creative Hugs
