Arty Treasure Update for May 2019

Arty Treasure Update for May 2019

Its all about Tim Holtz today! lol :) Just for something different... Tim's gorgeous Idea-Ology Transparent Wings are back and while there are heaps in stock, be quick because they fly out the door so fast! I think they're even more beautiful in real life than any pictures shown online. They're so delicate with fine details, perfect for any project that had insects, fairies, elves, people, animals, flowers, anything at all that needs some gorgeous wings!

Have you seen the new Idea-Ology Baseboard Dolls? They work perfectly with these beautiful new Wings of Tim's. They're similar to the original Idea-Ology Paper Dolls but chunkier.... approx 2-3mm thick. They could almost stand up on their own!

Art by Jenny product brochure May 2019 with treasures from Tim HoltzTim has also designed so many amazing treasures including stamp sets like Scrollwork, Mixed Mixed and Stitches, groovy stencils (Patchwork, Gradient and Shifters), the beautiful 3D Texture Fades embossing folders, die cutting templates (Thinlits and Bigz), a whole stash of Idea-Ology collage papers and embellishments plus those fantastic Vignette Boxes and Drawers... its a fabulous world we live in... so much treasure to choose from to collect, use in a project or give as a present!

In other news ... More of the Metallique Art Achelmey paints have arrived from Finnabair! They're all so beautiful, shiny metallic glossy acrylic paint. The new colours aren't here yet (one's called Dragonfly, can't wait to meet it) but aren't far away. Did you know if you add a matte medium to a glossy paint, you'll have a matte metallic finish? Very cool for something different! Now there's more than a couple instore, I've organised a bundle. They're in packs of 3 as well as individually now. Mix and match all the gorgeous colours to your heart's delight! You can even swap one of the Metalliques for a Sparks (very shimmery, pretty paint) as they're all the same price. No troubles at all :)

Have you seen Dyan's Dylusions Creative JumpStart Journal yet? Its a pretty awesome book with its 56 pages of unique backgrounds to alter and make your own. What will you use your's for? Why not add some of Finnabair's Decorative Tissue and beautiful stencils or stamp the pages with Darkroom Door's latest designs, Carved Flowers and Carved Leaves. So much choice, we're very lucky! I love it all :)

Jane Davenport Update ... All Jane Davenport products have been marked down to clear the way for Jane's new Spellbinders products. Looks like July or August at this stage :)

Creative Corner ... Did you know my craft blog 'A Life Less Ordinary', is full of projects with easy to follow step-by-step instructions and large clear photos? Well, now there's an Art Gallery of FREE Tutorials right here in my shop that gives you instant access to each of the tutorials. Each small picture in the gallery is a link to its project on my craft blog plus a full list of everything used so you can have a go if you wish.

When you buy arty treasures (ie, art and craft supplies) from me, I include a little Thank You card to show my appreciation. The front of the card is artwork I've made using all our favourite treasures. You'll find the same project on my blog and newly created Art Gallery of FREE Tutorials. Hope they make you smile!

Its mental health week in the UK (last week), reminding everyone how important it is to speak out about life and mental health. In Australia we have R U Ok Day (once a year!) but really, both should be something talked about every day. Its so important to look after our mental health because once that goes downhill, its a hard slog back up! I fell into a deep deep dark bucket that had such slippery sides but now I'm out, there is no way I'll be going back... a peaceful, stressfree, positive life is a much better way to live.
Arts, crafts and any kind of creativity is beneficial in the recovery, healing and happyness of our minds and hearts. It soothes, it helps to heal and because it is just so much fun, it helps us smile! Make time to be creative, its so worth it <3
Thanks for reading my news! I hope it helps and inspires you to make time for creativity which as you know, is so good for helping to heal our hearts, minds and souls... and its just so much fun too! Enjoy every moment <3

Happy Creative Day!
