cheep cheep....

Been playing in my new soft covered journal with this and that... and the new JoFY paints and Darcy stamps...

 my first page is my two gelatos, in  a sky blue and brightish green, over stencilled grunge paste.
 I stamped one of Dina's scribbly birds at the bottom,in forget-me-not archival ink (Wendy Vecchi's) and whilst the ink was still wet, I blended the edges a little with a damp brush.

Had a die cut leaf from the Tim Holtz die which I painted green and edged with a green Portfolio pencil, stamped words from the Scribbly Birds set.

and at the bottom, used some glass bead structure gel . (had this ages, never used it before!)


 the right page I started after the new Limited Edition JoFY paints and the Darcy EDY10 set arrived yesterday...
painted the page turquoise, stamped the flowers, painted the centre of the hearts with Chalk Fresco so I could the translucent Cherry Red over the top, and the stems I painted in Sage
 some not too careful painting caused me to re-outline the hearts with a black micro pen, added the birds and text from the same stamp set.

Wow wow really loving your playing session in your new journal, the pages look awesome. All my favourite things, the sketchy birds stamps are a huge favourite and I have started working with gelatos. I have bought Darcy's new stamps and the limited edition paints, really loving what you have done with them. Also love the texture, I haven't got any bead gel, I tend to use micro beads on a medium instead. Helen are they worth buying? I have ummed and arrrrred about it as the micro beads go everywhere lol :-) Kezzy xxx
