Well last week flew by even faster than usual, and it was so quickly time to go back to work... I had several nice days out once I got home from my friend Lin's in Poole which was also lovely (although we could have done without the rain on the Monday) It's time for WOYWW at Julia's again!
Whilst there she had to go into Hobbycraft so it would have been silly to sit and wait in the car....
the make up sponges aren't from Hobbycraft, they are from Primark and very good blending they allow too! (I got those once I got home) I wish I'd got a set of the pens in black now - these are shades of grey but I am sure I'll find some somewhere else.
I used Oxide sprays and the blending sponges to add some oxide ink - very impressed with them using oxide ink
this is on a 8x8 base - it's a big stencil in the background!
This was a quick make as I had already got the meeces stamped and coloured and the background was in my scraps box, part of a leftover masterboard.
I am trying to resist Paperartsy this week, they have another new set of paints stamps and stencils being released... I am hoping to get to the end to see them all before splurging (let's face it we all know I WILL splurge eventually!)
I also had a bit of a play in my journal whilst I was off work - several pages but none finished
This is the one I like most so far...
I was still on a pastel kick at the time with Fresco paints and similarly toned archival ink stamping.
so I kept getting stuck with how I wanted to proceed with things!
this was another page I started there and lost my way on!
collaged background, used a transparent white paint over the top, stamped some characters.
since I got home I've added some Oxide sprays in light colours and got stuck again!
It's a very bad photo as the light is already on and I can't get the phone flash to fire!
a big thank you to Neet for linking me last week although I was in the end home and up to do so myself!
I'll leave you with the link to Kew from last weekend and my days out in London here and here
