Welcome back for another Crafty Boots challenge. It's my first choice of theme for the team this fortnight and because it's still relatively new in the year, my choice is for "new" - it could be something new you've had for Christmas, new stamps, inks, a new technique - or something for a 'new' arrival or house for instance - the world is your oyster!
I had a bumper selection of new crafty things at Christmas and have used some of them here - a new alphabet mask (Creative Expressions if you're interested) and a new stamp set (Prima 'build a swirl'). I used my (still fairly new) Dylusions journal.
Stamped some of the swirls and other images from the stamp set, then took a paint brush and 'painted' the stamped designs, to block out the colour. Hope you can see what I mean from the top photo!
