Not my usual thing, but surprisingly refreshing to make.  I’ve been busy this week with evening invitations, Orders of Service, Menus, etc for my son’s wedding.

I’ve erased names and numbers, just for privacy.

Not brilliant but I wanted to try the stamps out. May have to remount and embellish – or I would if I had more time!
This one was really dark so I added some white pen highlights, which lightened it a bit… must get the white acrylic out and do my favourite thing with text.  The mica inks look gorgeous in real life – bits of shiny teal glimmer through.

This was inspired by the Art Journey Blog.  Love these colours, as you may have noticed, and had these stamps a while, but haven’t had chance to use them. 
You’d think that with no time to play, I wouldn’t have been buying stamps, eh?  Errrr, think again!  I have a big basket full of those I’ve accrued over the last six months (beginning with October’s Port Sunny show) and have hardly used – including some which were birthday pressies from my lovely friends. Something to look forward to.

The sun has got his hat on and I just had a blissful hour, making a few background papers and some journal pages.  I started out by trying the technique Carol showed on her blog, which was Dyan’s technique (Art from the Heart) – but it wasn’t successful…. never mind.  Had a great time anyway and my papers are almost dry in the warm sun.  Hard to believe it’s actually not cold!






The pages are from my PCET journal – something I have to do as part of the course – although I’m not doing too well on that score cos I’ve been too tired to journal!  I can see me inventing ‘em all again when excerpts have to do in my files – ooer!  As you can see, some of them didn’t turn out too badly and the design’s coming through more as the pages dry a bit more.  It WAS fun, though and the best bit is yet to come – I’m going to stamp on them when they’re dry!! 
Gotta tidy up now, though…
