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

As the sun colours flowers...
So, some of what I bought at Stevenage, that was still secret squirrel, was announced on the Paperartsy blog tonight (here, if you missed it)
stencils, limited edition (fab colours) paint - and of course new stamps...
so tonight I had a play. The background colour is Chartreuse - yummy - and the leaf is stencilled with Seaweed - reversed the stencil so the leaves were facing each other over the pages.
and some more, with some (not very well done, bumping using Chutney. My journal is very fat now and it isn't easy to work on!)
then used the other stencil I bought (there are more, I didn't get all of them - wish I had...) and used Space Cadet and then bumped with Snowflake over the large clusters
then took one of the stamps which is a leaf, but with text pattern - this set is fabulous! - and used Saffron archival ink as it was close to the greeny-yellow of the Chartreuse paint but enough of a contrast to just show up - and without using an acrylic block, rolled the stamp randomly round the pages.
Finished by stamping the quote from one of Lin's new quotes set (that I claimed as my Paperartsy prize last week) on white card, cutting it in half and mounting it to the page.
Great fun, and great new products, Lin and Paperartsy, I love them!!
