My Untidy Mind

 Good morning and a very happy Tuesday. The first challenge this month over at Lost Coast Designs is to Save The Trees. By that, we mean to stamp on anything other than ordinary paper. I decorated a phone holder 'cos you can never have too many of these.

I started with my naked phone holder (I'm sure it's not real wood lol)
I applied some base paint by pressing it on my gelli plate, then I stamped with Doodle Circles. This is a lovely stamp to colour in, which I did with paint pens and silver acrylic.

Next came the sentiment. If I'd thought this through I'd have realised that I could have used tissue paper, but never mind. This is construction tape - a little like duct tape but you can paint it. So I just stuck it to my craft mat then painted it white.

Then I stamped my Carmen's Veranda Tidy Minds stamp.

I just cut around it and stuck it in place. I was a little bit surprised that it was still sticky, but it certainly was!

And this is how it looks with my phone in place! I don't know how, but this cover blends in wherever it is, so it's great to have a proper place for it (and this way I remember to charge it too so it's a win-win!)

I only used 2 stamps on this one, that must be some sort of record! I've used

I hope you like it, and that you join in with our fun challenge. Take care, and thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Looks so good ...

    Hope you are enjoying some sunny days.
    Happy mid-week wishes.

    All the best Jan

  2. I do like it, it is fantastic, much better than the plastic thing I use for mine.... great sentiment too. I love the cover on your phone too!

    I keep trying to leave comments, I hope this one, at least, gets through! Hugs, Anne xx

  3. This is a great challenge and your take on it is brilliant. I love the phone cover but I know what you mean as I have a patterned one myself and although it's quite bright it just seems to blend in wherever you put it so a stand like this is a great idea providing you remember to use it or I should say if I remembered to use it Lol! Thanks for the lovely comment over at mine too. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

  4. Amazing and nice post. It will beneficial for everyone. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post.

  5. I've never seen these, but them I am probably in the stone age in regard to technology. Gorgeous practical art and cool phone cover. Hugz

  6. That's a clever little invention Sue, love how you painted life into that plain wood(?) The circle stamp looks very useful i'd have many a daydream painting those circles. Nice little perch for your owl phone to sit on and stare at you to remind you to charge it. Fab make.. Hugs Tracey xx
