Rainy Days Are The Best Days!

Today was a long overdue day spent with my friends Caz and Wendy.  The weather was dreadful and so a day inside crafting was well planned.... and we actually managed to do things as well as craft!

Here is a journal page that I created.....

I coloured the gesso'd background in fresco finish paints (bora bora, wisteria and (I think) Amethyst).  I added a few black markings.

Next I stamped Paper Artsy Ellen Vargo stamps and a Carabelle Studios background stamp.

I added Amethyst to grunge paste and pressed this through a stencil to add texture.I also sponged ink through Seth Apter stencils.

The crazy cat was stamped and coloured using distress crayons and a water brush.  The hedgehogs are from the Paper Artsy Kim Dellow range - these were already in my stash.

To finish, I added white detail and scribbling.

Next I wanted to create a masterboard on tissue paper. 

The methods used were the same as for the journal page.  Again, I used Fresco Finish paints - Peeled paint, French Roast and Glass Blue.  The stamps and Stencils are from Seth Apter (and are amazing!).

I had great fun creating these.... and even more so because I was spending time with friends.... just what the Dr ordered!!

Thanks for looking.....
