As I have a week off work-YAY!- I thought I'd do a bit of messing about! I've been trying to use up all the papers that I've got so I decided to try a bit of paper blending. I'm quite happy with the background effect and when i covered it with Crocor crackle pain it gave it a bit of a distressed look- you can't really see it in the photo. I'll probably not send this ATC anywhere because it's a mess-about but I'll definitely be trying the background again.

Finally I can sit down! I've been standing at the kitchen surfaces all day making the remainder of some wedding invitations I started a short while back. I still have the RSVP cards to do but I need to rest my swollen ankles now! This is the first time I've made invitations and it was a bigger responsibility than I imagined!

This is for a swap on UKScrappers which is all about butterflies!
I thought this would be easy.I have so many butterfly things but it's taken me ages to even come up with one ATC! Quite by accident though I discovered that if you brayer big and juicy over gesso then blot it off it dries with a chalky finish!

I did these for a swap on UKStampers. I had this image in my head of what I wanted but try as I might, I just couldn't get them to look the way I saw them in my head! I gave up trying in the end but couldn't bring myself to throw them away-I just love this stamp too much!
