For Manchester!

When I went to bed last night, I was planning on working on the 'tissue' prompt for week 21 of Art Journal Prompts today.  The news as I woke this morning led me to produce this page.  In memory of innocent lives lost, anger that children were targetted and pride for the reactions of the people of Manchester and the emergency services.

My First Parchlet

I must admit that I haven't done any Groovi parchment work for quite some time.  I've been focussed on art journaling and card or tag making. However, Tina Cox recently came up with the idea of creating a mini parchment piece (2" x 2"), now known as a 'parchlet' (after much discussion).  This is much quicker to create and can be mounted up as a topper on a card as well as being a mini piece of art in its own right.  This is my first attempt at this and I will be sharing it on the Parchlet Treasures Facebook page.

Tag Tuesday: Anything Goes

This tag was made for the Tag Tuesday fortnightly challenge.  As this time round the prompt is Anything Goes, I decided to push the boat out and go way out of my comfort zone.  I'm also entering this into the Welove2create challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Art Journal Prompts Week 20: Water Soluble


This page was created on water colour card for a change and later stuck into my kraft card journal.  The only non water soluble elements were the heat embossed letters and the Archival ink used for stamping the focal image.  Otherwise, every aspect of the background used water soluble media.

WOYWW 415: Crafting with a Friend

Hooray,  I have crafting company again and I have really missed it.  So I can once again share my friend's side of the desk too.  If you want to know why, head over to the Stamping Ground, where our hostess Julia will explain!
My side of the desk, with a half finished journal page.  I had already used sprays on the background, when my friend arrived with her card board box and a determination to play with sprays and masks/stencils. Great minds think alike.  You can also see the embossing powder and Versamark ink out ready to start stamping and embossing the quote 'Some see a weed, some see a wish.'  I usually drink Coconut Latte when crafting, as it tastes almost as nice cold as it does hot (a definite requirement when I am crafting).

The finished pieces and mop up sheets. 
Sorry if I do not get to visit everyone until the weekend.  I have a hair appointment today, a visit to the nurse and I also have to go into work as there is a parents' evening later.
