The laundry is done - some of the ironing …thanks to hubby ironing some of his trousers and I am trying to find time to relax! Only thing is we are having a Summer Fete here on Sunday and I have been asked can I provide something to sell! I also promised a friend that I would make some Birthday cards for her to send….so what does Mr Mojo have to say about this - Nothing! Nowt! Zilch! I think he may still be in Paris…
I have spent most of the day either staring at a pile of stuff or just trying my best to get on without him!!
In the end I decided to give up on all and turned to my journal!!!
I am feeling happier now because I at least have a page in my journal completed
It started out as a mop up page - using stencils that had been sprayed on then turned over.
I added some Grunge Paste through a honeycomb stencil and dabbed some Dusty Concord ink through part of a stencil I bought in France.
Darcy's Flowers from Paper Artsy Eclectica EDY10 were stamped in Lulu Lavender Memento ink but I wasn't happy so had to outline the stems and stamped over the flowers again with Watering Can archival once I had used my new Neo-colours II (added to my collection when hubby came across an art supplies shop in Tours!!!)
Some N-c2s added to the page by dabbing on with a sponge and a little bit of spattering using the same colours. Finally a touch of text!
I would like to enter in the following challenges
Mixed Media Monthly - A year of Choices
(I chose Stencils and Paste)
Our Creative Corner - What Makes You Smile? (my favourite colours AND actually getting something done!!)
Anything But A Card - Cre8time in the Great Outdoors - Out and About ( I am so looking forward to getting back to see our garden at our caravan!)
I am also linking to Brenda's Visual journey at Bumblebees and Butterflies
Hope to be back with some more holiday photos soon!
Thanks for looking, Chris
