I seem to have been crafting in short sharp bursts in between outings lately! This morning I went out with my friend Sarah for coffee (oh! alright…and cake!!) 
Afterwards we went to the Creative Recycling gallery in Charlton - such inspiration - in  between the galleries is a beautiful garden.

I'll show you more on T day!
I had made a journal page which I thought was finished….
..I had been a bit heavy handed with the Fresco paints as I scraped it onto my page and it had gone a bit muddy…. after todays outing I came back and (as well as completing another page in another journal) I brightened it up with some Crayola twistable slick stix.

I have also been having fun doing some stamp carving - more another day! 

I would like to thank you all for your lovely comments, I know I still have to catch up with some blog commenting so hope to visit soon! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Creative recycling is always something that I adore. Turning the old into something new is wonderful.

Lucky you. My craft room is too cold to work in, I worked fast and hard to get all my Christmas items put away (which I did two days ago), and now I am trying to undo some goofs I made on my computer, like removing a few things I needed (don't ask, I finally got them back at least). You know how long it took for me to get the info you requested to you, and the photos are still on my camera because PS is not on my new computer.

I'm through whining!!! I am so glad to see you carving stamps and having time away with friends. It's great that you can make such lovely art. Want to come help me clean my kitchen (which could take anywhere from a week to a bulldozer)?

Don't have a clue what the Crayola product you used but it sure did brighten everything up! Would love to go to the United Kingdom - so many wonderful places to visit!
Happy New Year it is right around the corner!

Great to see the difference the Crayolas made - clever stuff - and a great page. Lovely use of the LP woman. The creative garden looks lovely from the sneak peek you shared.
