G is for….





I am so excited to be adding Golden Fluid Acrylics and a selection of Golden Mediums to the store.  May take a couple of days, or three to get them all online.  If you can’t wait that long, please feel free to email me at sales@asprinkleofimagination .com for details if you want to place an order before they are online.

wait a minute Mr Postman…


I seem to be getting less and less time to be creative of late, but as I had received my fab piece of mail art from Sarah, I needed to get on with the piece I was going to do for Shirley. I am happy to say it’s finally gone in the post today. 


I really hope she likes it as I thoroughly enjoyed making it.  Lots of techniques  - collage, handmade patterned papers, stitching, oodles of wax.  Not sure the pictures do it justice, but I found it really tactile.  Perhaps Shirley will let you know what she thinks when she receives it, which fingers crossed should be tomorrow. I’m just hoping it survives with all that wax and this heat!  eek.

So what’s floating your crafty boat this week?

is coming home from a hard days shopping (I know, but birthday shopping for a very girlie little girl when you’re not girlie – in the slightest, with the exception of a love for stilettos' and handbags. Ok that makes me sound girlie, but I promise you I’m not, I think I just like having shoes that will inflict damage if required – self defence shoes shall we call them). I digress.

Happiness is coming home and finding fabulous mail art waiting for you….

I joined Collabor-ART, the brain child of Sarah, who created this piece for me.  The photo’s really don’t do it justice, but isn’t that always the case. Everything looks better in real life.

One of the on-going projects is a mail art trail. I have yet to create my piece for Shirley, who’s UKS Circle Journal I also have. Looks like I need to crack the pain open very soon.

In the meantime I have done a couple of background in my latest art journal.  Actually I did them a couple of weeks ago, but I just haven’t had time to take photo’s or blog them until today. Dribble free pages, on top at least, so far. Lots and lots of layers though.







Right, better get back to it! Thanks for stopping by.

fed up with my dribbles yet?



I now have a little section in my journal filled with dribbly pages. For now I’m enjoying them.

a gentle reminder…

was all it took.   Thanks Ally!

So many of you have asked me to share the whole page from my last dribbly page.  Sorry, I forgot, been caught up in lots of shop stuff since. I haven’t even picked up a tube of paint since.  Well, here it is…although sharing it now is making me think it needs something else.  Think I’ll whack some black around the edge.  What do you think?



What I do think though is that the left hand one looks like a monkey hanging out of a tree!
