So, this is my April page for Kate Crane's Art Journalling Calendar, 1st two layers! The 'starburst' in purple at the top right and lower middle is actually a piece of 'mopping-up' kitchen roll that I saved from a workshop at the Artistic Stamper with Jennie! As I 'mod-podged' it onto the page it slightly disintegrated so I moved bits and pieces around until happy with the layout. Yeah right! Actually, I stopped when my fingers got glued to the page!! I'm still peeling it off my fingers- very therapeutic!!
And my workshop piece from the Artistic Stamper last weekend! Finally finished after inspiration came!
The chipboard background was coloured with Distress Stains in Pumice Stone, Tea Dye and Tumbled Glass. I then stamped 'Hardwood' from Stampin' Up! in Walnut Stain all over.
Must say, I'm rather pleased with this!!
Finally a couple of cards (yes, I'm still making cards!!)
This first one is from Georgina's free make and take for Easter at the Artistic Stamper yesterday, and yes, the stencil found it's way into my shopping basket!! This happens to be the same stencil I used on my Jig Saw piece (bottom middle panel - you can just about see it - purple shimmery bit) and it is also the pattern mopped up with kitchen roll and used on the journal page!!
I'm really pleased with this as I don't often use yellow and orange. I love the way it looks totally different depending on how you fold it!!
And finally (thank you for being patient and getting this far!!). My dear friend Barry's uncle is 98 on St George's Day and Barry was bemoaning the fact that there weren't any combined St George - Birthday cards, so I stepped up to the plate and made this:
I added a sentiment .....
....and finished it off by stamping the name and date using the Tim Holtz Worn Text letters and numbers.
Thank you for popping by and I hope you enjoyed reading my blog!
P.S. Please can I enter my JigSaw piece in the following challenges:
