I'm not here…I am visiting my Aunt and Uncle in Nottingham and then on to my brother's in Lincoln. Nostalgia all the way!
I was born and brought up in Lincoln and moved to the North West of England when my ex hubby got a job over here and I went to college in Liverpool.
My ex hailed from Nottingham and my Aunt and Uncle live two roads down from where he used to live - although they moved from Lincoln after he had left and moved to Lincoln himself(to marry me!)
I spent many weekends at his parent's house and it is where I became friends with his sister - a friendship that lasted longer than my marriage!
I am now of course happily married to my present husband!
We haven't seen my brother for a while so decided to take a little break at the same time!
I am so looking forward to see some of my family!
I spent some time yesterday searching for my mojo - started a few backgrounds but little else - today, with a little help from my lovely friend Elizabeth, he edged his way into my craft room.
I still haven't made a great deal of headway on the things I should really be doing but I have done some of it - AND - I have plan!!!
My page started with some random spraying with Dylusions sprays in my large Dylusions journal.
Before going to bed last night I stuck on some ripped book page but didn't glue the whole of the paper. This morning I ripped off the bits that didn't have glue on and got a little bit of texture.
The rest of this page was made in between doing other things!
I added more spray and some texture paste and transparent gloss gel through a stencil
Some more stencilling with gold paint through a text stencil. I grabbed my Paper Artsy box of stamps and did some stamping with parts of a clock and a number stamp.
The main image is a favourite PA Lynne Perrella stamp.
The quote stamp is from Visible Images
I have realised that Family and Friends are what really matters….and of course just playing…
Thanks for looking, Chris
