TIOT has something new!!!!

Happy New Year if you haven't already been here!

Our new theme at Try It on Tuesday is actually 'Something Old.. Something New'! 

Quite a few of us have had something new - some of us even have the same new thing!!! The Design Team's fantastic examples can be found here.

I know I am not the only one to have these fabulous new AALL and Create stamps by Bipasha. 
I so enjoyed using this stamp with the little birds on that I totally forgot to take any process photos!

I started with some black paint spatters across the page then added some stencilling with Autour de Mwa's stencils that I bought at the same time at the workshop run by Abs and organised by Sharon and Mark of Rowantree Crafts.
I did some random stamping with part of the stamp too.
I stamped part of the stamp onto Rice paper and rubbed an inky sponge around the edges before using matte medium to stick on my page!

I love the seeing the background through the rice paper!

The challenge runs as always for two weeks and you will find a link to the Rules and guidelines here.
Have you something new to play with or are you going to use a trusty favourite from your stash? Either way it would be great to see you over at TIOT.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi Chris. I think we are both very happy with our new stamps.
This is a fabulous page and a good idea to stamp onto rice paper.
I love the splashed background you created.

The rice paper looks fab, Chris. Amazing how you and Yvonne used the same stamps out of all the ones you have in your stash! Great page - love all the dots and random bits of stamping.

Beautiful page! I love the grungy look and feel and those little birds are too cute 😁. That's a great sentiment and I love all the detail in your new AALL & Create stamp - beautiful! This stamp reminds me of the three little birds that I used on my first TioT page last year, it's one of my favourite stamps! Wishing you a happy new week! J 😊 x

A great page Christ and stamping on the rice paper give an extra layer of dimension to that lovely image.

You and Yvonne seem to be on the same wavelength. I love your splatters and the background, but that stamp is truly the star of the show, dear. I've never used rice paper or even seen it to my knowledge, so that was new to me!

This is great Chris and I want you to know I have been looking at this stamp also. I love it. You really know how to use it to show it off a fantastic way! Hugs-Erika

Another fabulous display using this stamp, it's an amazing design useful how you can pick elements from it. Superb journal page Chris.
Happy New Year if I have not already wished you & all the best for 2019.
Hugs Tracey xx

I can see how much fun you were having - it's there in the energy of the splatter and those fun, funky polka dots dotted around, and that stamp is really charming (as I've just said over at Yvonne's too!!). A delight of a page.
