Moonwalk on the Ashdown Forest.

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.
Beautiful sunny day here, 
so Dave and I are going for a long walk this afternoon,
across the Ashdown Forest.

So look at this paper leaf. 
It’s from the new Rainbow River pad.

Can you see what I see?
Squint a bit, and relax your gaze...

Let’s trim it back a little, focus on the centre.

How about we add a few bushes in the front,
a couple of hills and a moon?

In fact, let’s stretch back even a little further...

Yes. I think it’s time to get the boots on and walk towards that back ridge. We may not get all the way, but we’ll be walking,
and breathing in some fresh air.

This is a demo planned for tomorrow evening at 8pm.
You can watch on 
even if you don’t have Sky or you live abroad.

Love & Hugs,

  1. Gorgeous! Hope you've got deep stocks. I reckon these will go in the first hour! Enjoy your walk.

  2. Wow that is stunning. I love how you "see" pictures in your paper pads. I can sometimes but not half as often as you can. Must be all that practice you have had eh? Have a fabulous walk in the fresh air - the Ashdown Forest is beautiful isn't it? And I have only driven through it. xxx

  3. I have spent soooo much time just gazing at these papers and every time I do, I see something else! Here is another new view! wow!

  4. Fabulous enjoy your walk it's wet and miserable here x

  5. Were you it the sun or moon I could see a little animal cannot remember what it called it’s head and bridge on right corner road or stream going up around mountings love you hat you did xxx

    1. Should say love what you have done . Enjoy your walk xxx

  6. Fabulous. Reckon some of that paper might find itself in Tamworth. Enjoy your walk, we did a lot of walking when we were up in Leyburn. Loved the fresh air. X

  7. You have an extra sense I think Barbara. I could see some general trees and foliage and the brighter area I could definitely see a sun or moon being appropriate, but when you stamp and add some hills and a moon it comes alive! Enjoy your walk with Dave. x

  8. Ohh wow that’s all. Wow absolutely stunning Barbara

  9. Enjoy the fine weather..... It's blooming miserable here today.... Cold and wet! Perfect crafting weather actually!
    Love and hugs! Xxx

  10. I pull see a dancer lôve them papers have a nice time with yer hubby xx

  11. Oooo! More fabulous papers. I have a huge shopping list for the NEC. Looking forward to saying hello and watching your very inspirational demos.
    X hugs from Chris X

  12. Can’t wait to see these new papers/parchment. I’m too scared to use my pretty parchment ! Have a lovely walk. Xx

  13. Enjoy your long walk before your marathon TV gig. Our house smells lovely today as I've been baking Christmas cakes for my parents and John's dad and bread for our guests. Now I just need to have some will power not to eat any! I'll have to watch your demo on rewind as I just can't work out how you've done the moon x

  14. Love trying to spot 'things' in the papers/parchments,mind you it's not a problem as have always had a 'knack' of doing it...ask my parents about the witches faces in my bedroom curtains when I was a child (expensive fabric too!). Looking forward to the shows, recorder will be set later this evening! Xxxx

  15. You are one clever lady , lovely papers, will be watching tomorrow x

  16. Hi Barbara
    Isn't it funny, I could see what you were talking about, knew where you were going to stamp but somehow a pop star with a clowns head singing on a brightly lit stage with lots of fans kept springing into view!!! Once you can see something weird, the logic goes out the window!! Perhaps if I have another cheeky glass of wine and squint again I will see something else!! Haha. Hope you enjoyed your walk, it's been a beautiful but chilly day here today. Safe journey yo hochanda tomorrow.
    Love Diane xxx

  17. love the way you bring the papers to life. My shopping list is growing !!

  18. Hi Barb,
    Wow! This is fabulous! For once, I actually thought I knew where you were going with this! The stamping really brings it to life though. Just brilliant! I hope you and Dave had a lovely walk and that you have a safe, uneventful trip to Peterborough. Really looking forward to the shows - timer is set and bank card is close to hand!!! Love and hugs, Alison xxxx

  19. Really looking forward to this launch set recorder too xx

  20. Hello Barb, what a beautiful place to walk, either in reality or in your minds eye. Looking forward to the shows and have it set to record. Safe travels. Take care all. Bx

  21. Wow, amazing. Going to squint at all of them now 😀

  22. Gorgeous paper, looking forward to the show tonight. Was at SECC today at the ICHF Craft Show but I noticed you weren’t there and missed you, it wasn’t the same without you being there sharing all your inspiration.


Thank you for your kind messages and I hope you get inspiration from my ramblings.
