Guest Artist Lynne Moncrieff

We are really excited to introduce you to 

My name is Lynne Moncrieff and I hail from Perth in Scotland.  I am a self-taught and have been stamping for 7 or so years and who likes to create cards, tags, altered art, jewellery and everything in-between.  Of course, I also like to work with collage images which I like to print/transfer onto a variety of surfaces beyond ordinary cardstock.

The label, Queen of Romance has been given to me by friends which sums up my shabby, faded style.  I like to incorporate re-cycling and utilising scraps of lace, fabric, etc.  In fact lace tends to make an appearance on most of my art, even masculine projects! 

I was a reluctant blogger but with art friends urging I decided to take the step and set up my Blog, Adorn in December 2009. It has provided the most amazing opportunities, allowing me to be on a variety of DTs with past DTs ranging from challenge site, suppliers of digital collage images, on-line craft store and a rubber stamp company.

At present I am on DTs for Oxford Impressions, Darkroom Door, Crafty Individuals, That’s Crafty and Gecko Galz. I have been published in several Stampington & Co publications:- Somerset Studio, Somerset Studio Gallery, Sew Somerset, Somerset Life, Somerset Holidays & Celebrations, The Stampers’ Sampler, Take Ten and 400 More Ideas (formerly Catch-Up) and also Rubber Stamp Madness.   The Apr/May/June 2014 issue of The Stampers’ Sampler sees me having the great honour of being the Guest Artist. 

To be invited by Altered Pages to be their Guest Designer is such fun and a privilege. 


After isolating the Altered Pages Flower Maidens image I wanted to work with (using Pic Monkey) I re-sized, prior to printing with my inkjet printer onto Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper. Following manufacturer’s instructions I transferred the image to cotton, fraying the edges.

The Flower Maiden was layered onto burlap and corrugated panels which I had prepared with Gesso. This panel was then adhered to a piece of linen (cut from a vintage tablecloth) which had previously been stained with berries. Trapped between the burlap and linen I scattered some pressed flowers from the garden.

Gathering a selection of trims and laces I adhered them to the panel, the bottom lace is a continuation of the linen fabric. Moments seemed a suitable word so I stamped the word with black permanent ink onto a scrap of linen, merely embellishing the word with another pressed flower and a vintage button.

Finally I clipped a metal hanger onto the fabric panel and it is now ready to be displayed.

For my Amongst The Flowers wall hanging I used the following supplies:-

Altered Pages Flower Maidens 1097D
Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper
Laces and trims,Vintage button and lilac thread
Pressed flowers
Burlap and corrugated cardboard
Cream cotton fabric and dyed linen
Word rubber stamp
Black permanent ink pad StazOn
Metal hanger

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
