Today I think I'm off to the gym - I'll do my weights circuit then a body balance class I think. Then I have to go and get my eyes tested! I'm hoping we get a bit of the better weather that you lucky people down south seem to be having then I may be able to go out in the garden for what's left of the day!
Today I have a journal page to share with you - the prompt was to use something new - so I've used a new to me 12x12 stencil from crafters workshop, pan pastels, distress inks, jofy stamps, distress markers and some round the edge stamps from dylusions. Here's my make:
I started by using the stencil and grungepaste then, once that had dried I used pan pastels to colour the main background. Next I did the staming and coloured the images with distress markers.
Then I used some other stencils (joggles and imagination crafts) and distress inks to change the background and finally reapplied the main stencil and added some black distress ink.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
panpasteluk: anything goes with pan pastel.
I hope you have a great Thursday and please enjoy whatever you're doing.
