Simon Says Stamp..

and show your 'favourite word'. I went back to my journal again and was messing about with some of the fantastic Dylusions stencils. I love this pattern and decided that done this way it looks like a pathway, so my word was chosen!

the background is painted with Paperartsy Fresco paints (which I adore!) I think the green  (it is green, just a poor photo!!) I used was limelight but I fear I have forgotten!  the stencilling is definitely done with inky pool.  The leaves are from the same stencil (appropriately called luscious leaves) and I used black soot distress ink, I then doodled over them with my white gel pen . So, a pathway needs a figure - that posed some problems - Wendy's running man - too big, and facing the wrong way! Stampscapes figures - too small.... Umbrella Man - could be - fortunately I have this mini Umbrella Man from the QVC special a couple of years ago - perfect!! 'journey' is also Tim's, the writing my own!!
