Hi, thanks for stopping by. Today saw the launch of the 2014 Craft Barn blog challenge. This year, the challenge is Q and L - Quotes and Lyrics.
Each fortnight, you get a prompt of two words. You can choose whatever kind of project you want, but you have to include either or both, of the words, and they have to be from a quote or a song lyric. Today's prompts were "Smile" and "Up"
I "just happened" to see some half price Moleskine notebooks in a bookshop yesterday which at about 9 x 11 inches, are a handy sort of size for a long-term project... there will be plenty of spare pages left at the end of the year too... so I popped back out and bought them today (luckily they were still there, as there was only one set)
So, I searched through some stamps and came across one on a Dyan Reaveley word set which included a "smile" quote. I set to googling to see if I could find the source of this quote and eventually found it attributed to an Anthony J DAngelo..
The flowers seemed a bit non-descript from the clear embossing, till I remembered that in my Inktense pencils, was an outliner pencil, so I went round the petals with that...and I think they show up better now.
