Arty News for December 2018

What's New?

Between Christmas and New Year

The shop will be open 24 / 7 as usual but posting may be delayed due to the public holidays and extended weekends. If anything is urgent, please phone or text me on 0428898120, or contact me through Facebook as they’re both much faster than email and I see it straight away. Thank you :D

I'm have a sale!

You may have noticed the popup banner that waves at you each time you refresh the webpage or visit a new one! Its trying to get your attention to tell you I'm having a sale until midnight Christmas Eve.

It will help you save money before Christmas on your favourite treasures and help me get organised for when Tim and Dyan announce all the latest and greatest at Creativation next month. You just know we're all going to "need" simply everything they design for us! lol :)

Visit the Amazing Specials collection here to grab a bargain before Christmas Eve!

If you need your treasures to be delivered by Christmas but are worried you're running out of time, don't stress, there is always Express Post. Talk to me before you order if unsure of your options.

Tim and Dyan News

Tim Holtz's beautiful new collection of Christmas Stamps and groovy Shifter Stencils are here! If you've not seen Tim's other amazing treasures - including Dimensional Domes, Mini Snowglobe Thinlits, Collage Tissue Paper, Wallpapers, more Idea-ology treasures and amazing 3D Texture Fades - I highly recommend you check them out :)

A few old favourites are finally in store too, including watch fobs, cameo frames, baroque frames, glass mason jars and the matching photo frame lids. These would make wonderful gifts on their own or easily altered and personalised for that someone special.

Reminder About the Tim Tools... My awesome wholesaler is finally selling out of the old design of Tim's tools and replacing them with the groovy new black style. They'll gradually be added to my own shop's shelves as each one is available. I haven't rushed to get them all in stock because Tim's products are such a high quality, they won't wear out anytime soon... for me, buying a new one just because it looks nice all black and shiny isn't a high priority - but it might be for you! So please let me know if you want them faster and I'll organise it for you.

Inside Your Parcel...

The artwork featured on the little Thank You card (inside your parcel) is of a mixed media artwork created with the latest Dylusions stamps from Dyan Reaveley.

Using the adorable 'Elf Improvement Class' and 'Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe' stamps, I've made a colourful fun collage. Each image was printed using the Jane Davenport Squid Ink (black) then coloured with Dylusions Ink Sprays (with a paint brush) and trimmed with scissors.

Elves with Christmas Trees and Mistletoe as Santa Flies Overhead

The background is made from layers of Dylusions acrylic paint, Tim's gorgeous collage tissue (Forest) and a "few" stencils. I do love stencils :)

More photos with easy to follow, detailed instructions plus a full list of treasures used are on my craft blog, "A Life Less Ordinary" : or Click here to visit my craft blog.
