Not here you understand - I have been trying once again to get some order in my craft room. Since I got my new cabinet I have been struggling to make the space work - I lost two small sets of plastic drawers that were replaced by a sturdy metal cabinet! I thought this would be the ideal place to keep my little paper pads but alas it just isn't working - so this week I have been moving stuff around and….shock!, horror!…….gettting rid of stuff! We have also been out and about while the weather is fine too!
I have however, found time at last to play along with some challenges - this time I am joining Art Journal Journey where Erika - BioArtGirl - has the fabulous theme of Journeys. As you can imagine I really wanted to play along more with this theme but alas this is only my second time!
So….Paris…or any other French city in the afternoon…hubby and I like to sit down, preferably in a Salon de The and have a, well, in my case cup of coffee, but hubby always has tea. Often there is a little biscuit on the side too…
You may have seen the start of this page on Wednesday where I had to gesso over everything and start again. I had already decided that I would stamp onto tissue so it was good to see that my lovely friend Patty had the same idea! I did some random stamping with text and diamonds and used one of my new Crayola Twistables around the edges and also over the texture paste - they are really smooth. The stamp is one of the new Carabelle Studios stamps I bought in Paris and the words are from Emma Godfrey's Paper Artsy set EEG07.
I found the cup in one of my favourite magazines - Daphnes Diary and sat it on half a little doily.
Yesterday hubby and I were out for the day and I called into a Pound Shop to get some more cheap makeup sponges and I found some little narrow rolls of Washi Tape, so they have been added too.
Hope to be back soon with more journaling.
I have nearly caught up with most of my favourite blogs - still a few more I would like to visit.
Thank you all for your kind comments - it does make me happy to know that at least you haven't fallen behind and I do appreciate your calling by, it means a lot to me!
Thanks for looking, Chris
