Arrived home to an empty house yesterday, so had a quick play with a couple of my very few purchases from Port Sunny. I only bought one stamp and three small ones from Crafty Individuals, although I did get a freebie from Jean for being a blog follower – a lovely gesture and I got the stamp I prefer from the latest release, so I was chuffed. Thank you, Jean and Malcolm :-)
All I bought apart from that was the two Dylusions sprays used below, plus the violet, 3 masks/stencils and two Promarkers, which were only £1.50 each. I had already bought the Spring DIs, some seasonal reinkers and some new pencils earlier in the week, so I only went looking for stamps and didn’t find any I fancied, to be honest. Unfortunately, Stamp Camp had pulled out and Lost Coast didn’t come this time and they’re my usual ports of call. I suppose it was ok if you wanted acrylic stamps and T Holtz stuff.
I met up with a lot of people I haven’t seen for quite a long time (people I used to see quite a lot more of) and it was lovely. It did, however, get me thinking about time, how transitory life can be and how it can often change so quickly, so I journalled.
I added a bit of colour to a few pages, stamped a few images then doodled and wrote for a while.
Simple and just a bit of fun. The left hand page is a Mask which I found yesterday and thought would be good to write in, so I was just trying it out – I know I can draw that myself but it did generate ideas. I also have a some pages ready to work on, which means I can doodle to my heart’s content while watching TV, lol – not that I do much of that these days.
This is my entry for Susi’s wonderful Art Journal Journey challenge, TIME.
Have a lovely Sunday!
