JOURNALLING and other bits

First of all, I’m sharing a couple of bits I keep forgetting to  blog!  The top two are on glossy card.

THANK YOU FRIEND

I spent Tuesday with a lovely friend, who came to visit, and we had a great time.  She arrived with presents of hand made books and brought some of her most recent work to show me.  I was inspired!

Doing as I’m told (as always??? ahem!) I dragged out my BIA and blew away the cobwebs, then  took out my treasure box of backgrounds and proceeded to make a journal from some of them. I added a few other bits I’ve been saving up along the way.

This is the cover, though it’s in its bare bones state at the moment, waiting to be decorated if I ever get my room sorted out – help!!!

HM JOURNAL COVER

Inside cover and end pages. Sorry, but this won’t load the right way round – it’s A4 landscape size, so too wide!)

HM JOURNAL END PAGES

Today, I’ve worked on a couple of the pages, though I’m not quite finished yet.

I’ve been hoarding some of these papers for years and been trying to use them up when I start things, instead of creating more and more to add to them.  This is a great way to use up some of your stash so that you’re free to make more!  He, he…!

Thanks, Ann.

I’m already looking forward to next time…

Happy Weekend, everyone!

Make your Mark

The challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and more is Make your Mark, showcasing whichever mediums you use to colour. I seem to have a thing for flutterbies at the moment and have used a variety of mediums, but have coloured the bottom two in with lots of of gel pen – something I rarely use – I really enjoyed it, too.

HAPPINESS IS A

Aren’t these flutterbies fab?  They’re Stampendous Cling stamps and wonderful to use 🙂

Hello there…

Just thought I’d blog my two most recent creations – cards only, sorry but I’ll be doing more soon because I’m now teaching classes again – yay!  I’ve really missed it and now I have a legitimate reason to play 🙂

I’m entering this first one into the Simon Says Stamp and Show ‘Anything Goes’  challenge for this week and also into the Dream Challenge on KCUK.

I has a lovely surprise in the mail last week, when I found a parcel from New Zealand, sent by Mum, in which were some gorgeous SU stamps!  Mum knows how much I love leaves and all things French, so she couldn’t have chosen better.  I do have a few projects in progress with this set, so I’ll be posting more.

Thanks, Mum!

See you all soon!
