New 'name'!!!!! new blog!! come join me!! :)

Hi everyone, sorry for the mia over the past week or so. I have been thinking for a little while about changing my old business 'name' to something that reflected me, my art and embraced same.

I am usually pretty ordinary at selecting a name and I can procrastinate on it for a long time! I felt that Kazs Krafty Korner, whilst it's nice, didn't quite fully represent who I was or what I was doing and continuing to do with learning and developing my Art.

So anyways, I have finally decided on a new name, Art takes Flight :) I love it and I hope u do too! I am still rearranging and transferring and creating accounts left, right and centre with the new name, which means for this particular blog addy, I will be closing down in the coming weeks.

Once I get back up and running properly with things like my weekly collage journal, etc you will now find me and all posts from here on in at

Soon I hope to create a piece of art which I can use as part of my new header for the blog, until then it's a little plain....

I hope that my few followers will join my new blog, pretty please?? lol!!!!!

as always, thanks for looking and see you at Art takes Flight :)

Collage Journal entry & homemade stamp

Time for another Collage Journal page. Kept this one a little simpler this week, my only idea initially was I wanted to use a new stamp I had hand carved myself last week. I love arrows and chevron patterns and for ages I wanted a stamp with that style. I have seen many people carve their own stamps using the proper stamp carving gear, but I don't have any of that atm! So, I went with the alternative option and got some cheap erasers and using my Cutterbee craft knife I made my own stamp, I'm rapt with it, I love it, it's my first 'handmade stamp'!

This pic shows the stamp and an example of the impression on a partial created Journal page...

Here's what I came up with using the stamp for my Collage page, hope you like it:)

supplies used:

Music collage journal, homemade rubber stamp, washi tape, 7 gypsies gaffer tape, kaisercraft paper (words), distressed circle stamp, october afternoon abc stickers, gesso, permaball pilot pen.

Instagram is probably my most favourite app on my iPhone. I love it.
It's gotten me inspired again to taking pics and with the added bonus (my fave part) of snazzying them up with different filters and other cool things like borders, text, masking tape!!

If you are not familiar with Instagram, I came across this recent post by FatMumSlim - How to use Instagram

There's a bunch of different photo apps that let you get a cool look every time. It's great to be able to capture those spontaneous moments & special memories in that old Polaroid style with a modern twist.

The other day I came across this article and I was like OMG!!! How stinkin cute is this, I hope this comes out, at a good price lol

The pictures in Instagram, as with the old Polaroid, are square, which at the moment photo printing booths aren't set up for, I asked in Kmart and they are apparently hoping to be able to include printing Instagram size pics in the near future!

I did, however, come across a site Printstagram which will print your Instagram pics in not only 2 different sizes but also as stickers and other fun things! If anyone knows of anywhere in Australia that can print them, please let me know!! Thanks for looking :)
