I have received my copy of Art Journalling, so have spent a while browsing and wondering if I really can do that!! It's certainly a beautiful book full of inspiration...watch this space...I might get brave, you never know!!
I have also taken delivery of a Configuration Box this week, as I was so taken with the ones I have seen on other blogs, so I'm thinking what to do with that!
Anyway, here's the canvas....I am really pleased with it :)
I love 'house' stamps and was really taken with this one as soon as I saw it. I've had it quite a while, but hadn't got round to doing anything with it (unfortunately, like quite a lot of my crafting purchases!) I did the background with acrylic paints...I liked the idea of the masking technique in this months Craft Stamper, so thought I'd have a try. I sprayed Walnut Glimmer Mist over my masking letters and heart, then added a bit of Distress Ink to make them stand out a little more. They still weren't quite as prominent as I wanted so I edged them with a fine black marker....then I was happy!! I stuck a couple of extra punched hearts onto the house just to stress the 'love'!! A printed message finished it off.
I have also made my Valentine's card and am busy on birthday cards, as both Ian and Sam have February birthdays just 4 days apart. I'm keeping these under wraps for now...in the highly unlikely chance of them going blog hopping!!!
Oh...my BIG news of the week is that I managed to secure a cancellation at the Artsycrafts with Tim Holtz session!! Very sorry for the person who couldn't make it but even happier for me!!! I decided in the first place that I didn't want to go, but seeing all the snippets that keep appearing I was beginning to regret my decision....NO LONGER!!!!!
That reminds me...I haven't blogged the stuff I made at Artsycrafts in October...will do it soon!
