I don't seem to have done much in my A5 journal lately so yesterday while my grandson and hubby watched a film on TV I took myself off to my craft room for a play. The background was already partly done so not a lot to add!
I rummaged around in one of my bags for scraps and found some Crafty Individuals Alice Palace crowned bunnies images I had stamped onto a piece of (I think) Christmas paper.
A little more rummaging came up with a crumpled piece of tattered lace music paper - perfect to sit them on.
I tore some little scraps of paper and stuck them on top left but they looked a bit bright so I added some crackle paste through a stencil topped with a dragonfly postmark that was also in the scraps.
At this point instead of going with the flow (or winging it if you prefer) I knew what the bunnies were looking at - of course - an Artistic Stamper dragonfly!
This then needed words - so another rummage - this time in my words box of stamps - this Oprah Winfrey quote(Can't remember which set this is separated from!!), torn to put the first part of the quote by the bunnies, fitted the bill nicely - why shouldn't bunnies dream about flying?
I edged the quote with black soot distress ink then used a blending nib to go around the bunnies to make them stand out a bit.
The dragonfly's wing were coloured with Cosmic shimmer paints and then I rubbed on a little stickles with my finger.
I finished this before the end of the film so I carried on and did another page which I'll show you soon.
The rest of the day included lunch at the new cafe at Dunham Massey followed by a lovely walk under the shade of the big trees there.
Unfortunately when we got back my grandson played a mind numbing game on the computer with THE most annoying music!!! Peaceful moments shattered LOL!
I would like this page to be entered into the following challenges:-
Simon Says Monday Challenge which is the letter J (for journalling)
Thanks for looking, Chris
