You knew I would!

Those of you that know me just knew that when I saw the beautiful projects by Liesbeth Fidder on the Paper Artsy blog I'd have to have a go!! I just adore Lynne Perrella stamps and Liesbeth's paint effect combined with the way she used the stamps was just amazing!

Although I have made some flowers using the paint effect I haven't used them here.

Here is what I did - a journal page - having made the base background from the mop up of paint on my mat after making the background for the lady flower!!

I cut up a Squiggle Ink phrase from Flora and Fauna 6 to express how I'm feeling right now - 'From this moment on……..'. I am hoping that life has turned a corner for the good, having just won some blog candy from lovely Alison and with other things going better too! I used a few different stamp sets to make this page - LPC004, LPC009, LPC011, LPC0013 and the teacup from LPC014. 

I have been back and to the TV today watching the first stage of the Tour de France (apart from an hour out to the 'village' to shop)I'm afraid I cried at the end!! The Yorkshire Dales provided a brilliant backdrop for the Tour! We are off a bit closer to home to watch it go through tomorrow with our grandchildren! 

Just before I go, can I just thank my followers (including new ones - Welcome!) for all your lovely supportive comments - they mean a lot to me! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

This is beautiful, Chris! I love the colours you chose and the whole layout of the page - and - yes, I thought that, like me, you wouldn't want to miss having a go at this one! Congrats on winning Alison's wonderful blog candy! I was really delighted when I saw it was you! Have lots and lots of fun with the lovely stash! Julie Ann xxx

I saw that you'd won Alison's candy - well done indeed! Your journal page is fabulous! I hope you enjoy tomorrow's stage of the tour. Poor Cav though. Thanks for your blog comment.

Lovely flower lady.

WOW, Chris, this is gorgeous. I'm totally impressed. This is a gorgeous page you created and I look forward to seeing the flowers, too.

I don't think we get the Tour de France here. We might get blurbs on the news, which of course, I don't watch. Thanks for letting me know, and I'm hoping for a few photos if you go (HINT!).

I was pleasantly surprised when I turned on the TV today and the Tour was on. You live in a truly lovely area. I was less interested in the bike race than I was in seeing the beautiful countryside, which they showed every so often. What got me was all the beautiful old brick and stone buildings along the way. It was almost a dream come true to see that simply majestic green countryside.

Gorgeous page....and YES the TV for once did justice to your gorgeous part of the country ;)
