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…

Hi Cath

Glad you were able to grab an hour to yourself in the sun.

You've got some great colour combos going on with your pieces. Can't wait to see them stamped, as it changes the whole appearance of them!!

Take care - Sam xxx

Gorgeous colours! I popped here earlier, but followed the links. I'll definitely be giving it a go. Maybe it's something to do with the paper absorbency x
