Having had such a great time with Donna Downey a couple of weeks ago, I am now obsessed with hearts and Pan Pastels. Plus I have made myself a new art journal, and for someone who has a pathological fear of sewing machines (which stems from a needlework class when I was about 11 when I sewed my finger to some material, and got told off by the truly unpleasant teacher for breaking the needle), I feel quite proud of my achievement.
Here is a page which I made today.
I covered my page with some vintage French script, and then applied a sheet of scrunched up tissue with matt medium. After this dried I used a homemade stencil and my Pan Pastels to make the heart images, sprayed with fixative and then coloured the background.
The stamps are a mixture of Tim Holtz and Wendy Vechhi, and its all stamped using black Stazon.
The bus tickets are stamped onto manilla card and then fixed with tiny staples.
Hels theme this week over at The Sunday Stamper is numbers, and it's the 200th Sunday Stamper, so a big thank you to Hels for giving us a lovely dose of inspiration each week. To celebrate she has some fantastic blog candy, so pop over to her blog to have a look and perhaps enter the challenge.
Before I go here's a picture of my journal, that I made all by myself. I bet that needlework teacher would be quite surprised!
And now I really should go and make a start on the veggies for tonights dinner, yummy Welsh lamb.
