Colouring for grown ups!

August 21

We’ve recently discovered colouring books for grown ups and we’re hooked.  If you have never tried this really relaxing, therapeutic hobby then download this page and give it a try.  After just a few tries (and messed up pages) we ended up buying all sorts of colouring pens and pencils and pastels and what-not for our colouring pages.  It’s just so much fun!  To download the image simply click on the image below:

Found Object Stamping

June 19

During a workshop session with artist Melanie Brummer from  Slipstream Fabric Finishes, we had some time left over to just creatively mess around a bit.  She motioned to a bag on a shelf in her studio and asked us to just empty the contents out on the floor.  Oh.  What. Insane. FUN!  The bag was stuffed full of all sorts of found objects and we had so much fun stamping with all the different items.  So here is the short and easy (but with all the fun) on how you can do some found object stamping onto fabric.  Click on the picture below to download the tutorial.  For more information on where you can book a stamp and dye class with Melanie, visit her website: for more information.

Postcards is a bit of a relic of the old days, but it really is something to actually get one in the mail.  So make yourself these postcards and take them with you when you’re on holiday and send them to friends, family or even yourself!  Click on the image below to download the tutorial.


Flowers, to brighten your day

This past week the weather has been all kinds of mixed up as autumn is in full swing.  Along the roads grass and trees are starting to turn leaves and colour.  Some of us are starting to feel the misery of winter approaching, so to chase them away we have a solution.  A simple arrangement of fresh cut flowers to brighten your day and living space.  Click on the picture below to download the tutorial.
