Second look on the 2nd...

...with Elizabeth and Bleubeard who invite you to take a second look at something you made and blogged in the past!

This was from 27th May 2013(if you want to see the original it's here 


Squawk meets the tattered floral monster!



Feeling a bit low I thought I'd cheer myself up by just playing with inks and stencils to make some papers to use in my journals. Of course there were a few mop up papers! After cutting out some tattered flowers with the garland die there was a piece of paper that I just had to use along with Lindsay Mason's 'Squawk' from her Doo Lally Pip range.I stamped over the kitchen roll with a Lavinia stamps thistle head and added eyes.'Squawk' was stamped onto a piece of the paper I'd made. Hope it makes you smile....
 The background had been started a while ago so I just added a few dots through stencil some with ink and some with ferro gold. Couldn't resist doodling in some spiky flowers!



I have lots of mop up paper so maybe it's time for another monster!!
I certainly have some lined up for flowers!

My France photos are here and here if you would like to see them 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Have to agree, that's wonderful Chris...love that you re-use the mop up paper - just started using towel roll so now I have some idea.

Since I'm relatively new to your blog, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Squawk. And I love how you use kitchen (or as we in America call them, paper) towels as mop up rags. They make excellent ones, that's for sure.

Thanks for sharing your second look on the 2nd this month, dear friend.
