Sand, yum- TN

Another traveller's notebook page to show today. It's a seaside scene, of me feeding sand to my cousin. Don't ask...

It needed some waves, and seaside embellishments.
The tickets are cut out of a 12x12 sheet bought expressly for that reason.

I like the little stamped stars, it feels like the black grounds it a bit.

I added a stamped film strip for my journalling. I quite like to hide my journalling, so that you have to work to see it!

Thanks for looking!

Decoupage, erm....

Bit out of my stylistic comfort zone this post- I found some decoupage sheets in amongst my stash. goodness knows where they arrived from, but I thought I'd use them up on some cards.

They didn't turn out too badly, kinda simple, but they're sweet cards.

I got to practice my bow tying too! I'm not sure I'd buy any more decoupage, I find the layering up fiddly, and then they're too thick to post really. Ah well, at least I tried...

ATCs- You're nobody

Well now, this takes me back... Making ATCs for a swap at my local crop- the theme was animals, or pets, anyway, whatever it was it meant cats to me.

One of my favourite cat stamps, and a favourite saying too. The backgrounds are inked, sprayed and stencilled to within an inch of their lives, and the cat is stamped onto an old book page. Cute eh?

Thanks for looking!

Cards- I love you, you weirdo!

You know those scraps from scrapbooking? Those little strips and off-cuts that look too substantial to throw away, but they're really not a lot of use? Well I used some up. Go me!

I'd watercoloured a few Stampotique images too, so they got added.

And my favourite little alphabet stamps came out to play. I take these everywhere, they're really versatile.

Thanks for looking!

I am grateful- TN

Another traveller's notebook page made to a prompt- What are you grateful for? Well I'm grateful for my husband, he's a gem amongst men. Really he is.

For some reason I'd taken photos before and after darkening the lettering!

I'd slapped a bit of paint on this one to try to pull the colours together with the blue, and the pink to lift it a bit- successful I think!
Thanks for looking!

What scares me most? TN

This was a page in response to a prompt- a Hallowe'en prompt even, so I've had it hanging about for a while...

Fantastic Stampotique stamp there, I love my collection of handsome ugly boys. The TN page hides a journaling tag, you'll be stunned to discover I'm scared of celery.... Evil devil's food!

Thanks for looking!

Curls- TN

I've already confessed my love for these spectacular spectacles stamps, so I won't do it again. Fantastic in black though, aren't they?

Perfect for a page in the TN about my lovely little spectacles wearer having her magnificent mane of hair curled. I'd dripped orange paint down the page, so I went for a black and orange theme.

The photo is a PixPax one, and I'd had it printed with the caption already on it. Jury's out on whether I really like that, but it looks nice on this page.

Thanks for looking!
