Being me!

I am still under the influence - so to speak - of Magda and Kasia(whose work by the way, you really should take a look at - give yourselves plenty of time as there's so much to see!!)

But, when I saw the challenge at Simon says stamp and show I just had to think - what am I known for? (craft wise that is - as anyone who knows me would say I talk and laugh a lot!!)Well, couldn't pin anything down except that as a hoarder I always have plenty of scraps to use! So, went off to craft group yesterday in Sale and asked the girls there what they thought and guess what -  they said it's the way I can use anything in new ways! Well, I suppose that's true - they used to laugh when I would save mop up kitchen roll or baby wipes but they would go into my scraps and would turn up a few weeks later for a project!
So here is my entry, it's in my journal
I just sort of went with the flow, grabbing things from my scraps, stamping over them, splodging, inking, stamping, tearing, punching and generally have a great time!
 I added some stickles after finding these words...
...in a book my hubby was going to send to the charity shop with legends about King Arthur and it's my most used book for finding just the words I need!
I hope this gives you and idea about what I really love doing and  What I'm Known For which is this weeks Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx

That is really super Chris. Just shows, there's gold - silver in your case - in scrap.

Beautiful, beautiful pages, Chris - such delicate colours, and the texture created by all that layering of different elements is wonderful! I love your scrappy scrapping - certainly I'd've mentioned kitchen roll as a thing I know you for - I love what you do with it!!

Love your art journal pages, Chris. The colors are awesome. The design is really creative and fun. The words...so cool that you rescued them from a book that was going to the charity shop! They work perfectly with your pages. Thanks for sharing your pages with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

This is a beautiful page spread. You sound like me. I can't throw anything beautiful away and baby wipes stained with ink are very beautiful.
Are you having any problems loading up photos?
Have a creative weekend, Chris.
