In the meantime here's some crafting to share with you all. Remember when Lauren came to stay in early July? We did some journaling and I had bought a couple of £2.99 IKEA mirrors. I'm ashamed to say that mine remained the same from then right up until Friday when I started work on it again. It was NEARLY finished but just lacked a little "je ne sais quoi"!!!
Remember how it looked? NO? Me either, it was that long ago .... so here's a reminder of how it was left at the end of that weekend.
Right, so ....... armed with this I started by taking a mini clipboard
And covered it with tissue tape before inking up my Hero Arts foliage image with versamark ink ..... then applying magenta pan pastel which I set with fixative. Next I took my Tim Holtz blending tool (with the felt pad) and alcohol inks in pinks and metallic + some blending fluid and ... BINGO!!!
Elsewhere, I found my Paper Artsy krunchy wax paper flower that I had made whilst in Essex with Lauren (funny how we are such great crafting buddies - she MADE me do it ...... in the absence of the lovely Wynneth who would have loved to join us!) and here's how the mirror looks right now - still not totally sure it's finished - how about you lot? I'm thinking stamping to the right and left sides but ........ what sort of image is my dilemma, any ideas?
