Got to get you into my LIFE

Hels' Sunday Stampers challenge is "life" based on the above Beatles track, for the late George Harrison's birthday. The theme being 'life' I turned to some Tim stamps and my journal and Fresco paints (claret and autumn fire)

I am ecstatic this afternoon as Liverpool overcame Cardiff after penalties in the Carling Cup Final and before it started I was working on this, then during when it got too tense to watch.... but not the penalty shoot-out, for that I had to hide outside the living room peaking round the door...you know: can't watch, can't NOT watch!

Used some of the Tim H tissue wrap, stamps and some stencilling with a Hero Arts alphabet set for Live and Life stamped in the circles (magenta archival)

off to celebrate some more now!

I love your journal pages, I like you was watching Liverpool playing with my husband, we were both so wound up by the match- but at least Liverpool won.

Lovely pages. All the elements just hang together so well. Was thinking of you as I was watching the shoot out!!! (I was waiting for Countryfile myself!!!)

Lovely fusion of colours Helen.

I watched the shoot out through folded fingers, nerves just about stable again, why do we make life so difficult ? But it's a good basis for going forward.

Fabby bright colours Helen... I was thinking about you when it got to Penalties... I had to endure them last year when Luton were up against Wimbledon in the play off's...losing on penalties... and then a three hour journey home... garrr...

The colours are lovely and great use of the tissue, not quite sure what to do with it yet, so feel inspired to use it now.
