Morning readers and welcome to the start of another week!
Another week starting and it's as dull and grey as can be here in Bristol but fairly warm at 18°c - not as warm as Florida (currently 25º and still dark as I type this). And, blimey, it's August already! I'm not even sure I was done with July! Are we SURE we had all 31 days?
The advent of August means a new scrap challenge over on Scrap Addicts and this month's challenge has been set by Wendymoon - her fab sketch is below.
I have a plan! Having been to a wedding reception at the weekend there is just a faint possibility that this may turn out to be the inspiration for the August layout - do check back later or tomorrow and see whether anything came of my inspiration - oh, and I don't intend to touch this layout with a brayer!!!! ..... read on ....
A number of my regular readers made some lovely comments about my first attempt at brayering and, because of this I am going to share my second attempt - which is PANTS!!!! I used different inks and colours and then started inking my image with Ranger Archival ink ..... I plainly SHOULD have waited till my background was fully dry BEFORE stamping my scene - it might have looked better! This is one that WILL be consigned to the bin but ..... a useful learning experience!
See? Complete pants!
Happy Monday to you all - have a great week
