A bit of this, a bit of that!

Cannot believe I am keeping this blogging malarkey up, to be honest I find it quite therapeutic, how strange.

This morning I suddenly remembered it was my sisters wedding anniversary this week.  Made a quick card using  mostly Tim's products as always.
Ranger Manila card stock
Tissue Paper
Fired Brick distress ink
Fired Brick stain
Rose trim

I am going to enter it in both Grungy Monday and Simon Says challenges as it fits both criteria

This is the first page I am going to show of my new found craft of art journalling.  All I can say is it is a work in progress, I have made a few errors along the way, but isn't that how you learn? I absolutely love hidden writing.  Think I need a trip to see the one and only Dy to assist me to progress..  I must remember not to buy anything when I am there, yeah right!
Okay big breath

I have used a number of Dy new and old stamps and the background colours are Distress stains.  I had to Gesso the big white patch of flowers to hid a BIG error of judgement...................Need help now

Thanks for looking.


  1. What a lovely Valentine's card - and your Dylusions page is great - try spraying one of the ink sprays (brown or perhaps red?) over the gesso'd flowers - would tone it down a bit. You could even add more gesso'd flowers to make it look intentional. That's my two cents... I think it looks FAB! Thanks for sharing your projects with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show.

    1. That worked Ellen this time but the other one didnt come through how strange.
