Hello. Welcome. I have been playing along with Darcy's journal challenge and despite having a month to join in I still manage to leave it to the last minute! When I saw Darcy's pages this month there were some stamps that immediately leaped to mind but the colours have had me a bit flummoxed. Despite knowing I don't have anything like them and must move past it it still became a bit of a block. How silly is that?? Anyway I realised I was running out of time but yesterday the sun ran off with the mojo leaving us grey and uninspired. Today I was feeling blue and decided that if I didn't start I certainly wouldn't get very far so I threw some paint at my journal page and it then one thing led to another...
Ripped book paper and a variety of blue acrylic paints
A stamp from MME Indie Chic Ginger Picture stamp set, pansy and snowflake fresco finish paint
Frame and border stamp from Simon Says Stamp Artful Borders stamp set. The zig zag border is also coloured with blue Galaxy Marker. Interlude to go and round up some sheep. It's all happening here.
I've used a previously made orange brayered background. I stamped with the little round stamp from PaperArtsy SIEN10F, fussy cut and stuck them round the frame. Dream is Sizzix Movers and Shapers die and the frame is stamped on the same background using another stamp from the Simon Says Stamp set. The moth is cut using a PaperArtsy Moth die and stamped with the moth from USNT4. The moth is not stuck down yet, maybe I should have placed him in the frame but I am still debating with myself over orange or blue flowers. What do you think??? Also I want to add some white details but my gelly roll is just about dead so we will call this a work in progress.
