This week’s WOYWW is missing the very important part … one might say pivotal… the picture of my desk! This is because I left this morning for work without taking the picture I meant to of my crafting space! Doh! Last night I had been crafting – finishing the journal page – I remembered the picture of that last night – just forgot the actual desk! Doh! If I get a chance later I will rectify this and take a pic and then update this blog post!
Anyways – I am doing this on my lunch at work – trying not to go out at lunch and spend money so thought a bit of blog hopping would be a good distraction… so will be shortly popping to Julia’s blog to go nosey round the other crafty spaces people are sharing – it’s fun to be nosey – and in most cases be inspired!
So what do I have to share… that’s right my journal page!
This page for Rae’s challenge is a few weeks out of sync…. Use my own writing!
I hate my writing and so have got a book to inspire me but not had a chance to use it yet… So this is without that much needed inspiration…
I used a Julie Nutting stamp which I paper pieced on top of a paint background using bubble wrap to stamp and credit card to create the lines. Also in the background is a crown I was sketching, a foreign stamp that fell out of the ephemera box so I stuck down and then a heart I stamped on some random painted cardstock and added the stamped words from the Happy Thing stamp set.
Then I added some doodling and outlining to the girl and then the words using a Calligraphy pen.
Looking forward to using the book as soon as I get there… Will have to post a review when I have had a chance to read it properly.
