Handmade from Crimson Circle Studios

I am venturing into handmade collage, and made these bookmarks about a month ago, just after registering my new shop. I must admit they were more time consuming than I thought they'd be, and once you've glued or rubbed down the elements, they're permanent–so lots of design pre-planning!

These bookmarks were inspired by dreamy fashion pics from my old magazine collection. They are made of sturdy cardstock, with various scrapbooking papers, rub-on embellishments, cut and hand colored photocopies, and finished with a long matching ribbon.

All are for sale at

Important Shop announcement

Hello again.
Due to business name registration issues, The Lucid Image has had to change names. I have registered a new business name 'Crimson Circle Studios' and will be operating under this name in the future. (This will incorporate my freelance advertising/design work as well as my online shop.) Until I have cleared The Lucid Image shop of items, you will be able to access both stores over the next few months.

This blog site will eventually revert to
but at present remains:

To celebrate my new shop, I have created my first ever Etsy treasury featuring all the things I love. A wish list of sorts. Hope you like it, please feel free to leave a comment.

Swoon....I'm in a new ETSY treasury!

Hello everyone!

I've sadly neglected my blog. Things have been slow on Etsy lately and I've been busy with my freelance design work throughout March. At last I've found some quiet time to get back into blogging again. I'm always grateful to be included in a treasury with other artists & craftspeople, to know that someone is noticing my work. I've been included in this wonderful treasury called 'Swoon' and it truly has some gorgeous 'swoonworthy' items. Thank you to savagekitten once again for curating such a yummy compilation.
