The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Messing about in my journal
I decided that rather than just slobbing out in front of the tv tonight, I would do some more in my journal - this time I went with this page I used to mop up the spare paint the other day and using a dry brush added some more of the paperartsy paints.....
turned it into this. The leaf is from my one and only set of Dylusions stamps and I coloured it with my 3 pan pastels... which are luckily green! (need some more of these...)
The stamp in the middle is from a Tim Holtz set I'd not used before, and I cut out some of the words to layer up.
You will see that I even wrote on this page!!!!! (I used india ink - I bought a bottle from The Works before Christmas - don't have a quill pen so I used the end of a cuticle stick I "rescued" from Mum's house when we were down at Christmas doing some of that decorating/clearing out.... well it's the right sort of shape!!
One day I'd like to take calligraphy lessons....! I was only doing this for fun, but I realised belatedly that today's Simon Says Stamp and Show theme is "anything but a card" so I'm entering it for this! As always there is a fab prize up for grabs.
