I’m following Journal Bliss by Violette at the moment and really enjoying it. I’m doing a lot of writing and since some of it is personal, I’ll keep it small but I’m having fun :-)
I did things a little differently this time because I’m sick of destroying expensive pens! So, I did the wording and some of the doodling first, then added colour, using Watercolour paints, Water soluble oil pastels, Prisma pencils and even Tombow pens.
This one’s just a bit of fun with Typography.
I think this one’s self explanatory – it’s about Questions, lol.
Last one for now.
Not a stamp in sight cos I’ve been drawing – okay, drawing badly but I enjoyed it, lol. I’ve decided I actually prefer my normal handwriting than messing about, though, so unless I spend a lot more time on lettering, that’s all you’ll see from now, unless I get out my Calligraphy pens and see what I can remember. It’s 30 years since I used to spend hours working on pieces and get very frustrated because I’d made a mistake on the last line! I’m a bit more patient now, I hope …
Here’s a tag I made very quickly and sort of revamped.
It’s one of my favourite stamps but I don’t use it very often at all. The actual tag was distressed and ironed and was made when Ranger first brought out Distress inks!
Sorry I’m not blog hopping as much as usual at the moment but I’m trying to avoid spending too much time at my laptop – breaking habits. That’s another story…
Hope you’re all having a great Bank Holiday weekend so far. The weather’s been pretty good here today (unusually) – a little on the cool side and especially when the sun went in but bright and cheerful.
See you soon!
