Really love Indigoblu mega flakes and used them to edge everything, including my hands lol. I looked like I had gold nail varnish on by the time I had finished!

I had a go at art journaling today and am really pleased with the outcome. I used tissue paper and paper artsy fresco paints over gesso to make my background. I then layered stencils using pumice stone and frayed burlap ink and stamped butterflies on the background. I forgot distress ink changes when wet and sprayed perfect pearls over my background and everything smudged a little but I quite like it. I then used grunge paste and sequin waste to add some more texture before adding my stamped image and wording. Really happy with my first page :-)

I bought distress paints a while ago and hadn't got round to using them much do decided I would have a play with them this weekend. I love blues and purples together so decided to use those for this tag
I love the way you can make a really quick background with the distress paints and was looking forward to creating another couple when my baby woke up from her nap, so that put paid to that idea :-@
Have left a seriously messy dining table to finish playing later!does anyone else's look like this lol. I always intend to be tidy but always seem to lose the battle along the way :-@ Well back to looking after my little monkeys and the table will have to wait a little while longer .....

We are finally home from our holidays. Much as I love to go away there's nothing better than getting home! I went to The Great British Craft Festival at Warwick as we got back on Saturday so spent the day there yesterday and picked up some bargains including a fabulous stash of Indigo Blu stamps :-).
I got home and felt inspired to get on with my ATCs that have taken me forever to get done :-/
