Stamping, painting and a fabulous, in my opinion, carrier bag :)

I have always wanted to try stamping so, eventually, I bought some on Ebay along with a rubber roller and I was ready to start. 
I have only completed the one item, a mirror, at present but enjoyed doing it so much that I'm doing a letter rack tonight.
So for some honest feedback please, as I know not all like my taste lol, but I would really appreciate it.



I absolutely adore script in any form whether it be soft furnishings, wallpaper or home accessories. 
I knew script was going to feature somewhere, this was my 2nd attempt as the first looked very muddy and had too many differing stamps making it look a mess so I painted over the lot except the face.


I love love love using these stamps they are so quick and you can create so mant looks and styles..


And the finished result.....




Now for a fabulous Carrier bag....

Today my husband went to buy me some Annie Sloan paint as I have heard nothing but good about this paint. When he handed it over it was in a lovely carrier made out of Indian newspapers. 
It was brilliant.




Isn't it fabulous, I think its an amazing idea for anyone who does alot of craft fairs etc...just use any ols newspapers, making sure of course page 3 isn't taking pride of place on the front ;)

Gorgeous frame! I love it. Not sure how you did it though. What's stamping? Great carrier bag. Was it strong enough to carry the paint in? A very good idea.
