We had a great time with our son and grandchildren, even though they were only with us for three days! We managed to fit in trips to Morecambe,the Rheged Centre, Acorn bank and Kirby Lonsdale - I will post photos separately if you want to see what we got up to!
This months great Architecture challenge at Art Journal Journey is coming to an end too - I loved Sheila's choice of theme and wish I had had time to make more pages!
My page started with wrinkle free distress on the first page in my new journal - it is an A5 Pink Pig just like the first one my youngest son bought me!
I used Stormy Sky, Old Paper and Bundled Sage DIs. I then added some further colour through the lattice stencil and a little random text.
The stamps are a mixture from Tim Holtz Classics 2,9 and 16 and the sentiment from TH Captured Moments set, all stamped using WV Potting Soil, I stamped the window and the sentiment on the back of some TH papers in my scraps folder. I masked off the centre of the window so that I could stamp the face. I used a distress tool around the window before adding some Old Paper DI. I cut the lattice using my Thinlet Mixed Media die for the corner
