Play Dates for Grown Ups!

I've set aside some time for myself. I've written the dates in my diary (and I don't like crossing things out so it would have to be mega important for me to change these dates I can tell you!) Well the ME time is a few play dates at Art from the Heart.
I'm really loving the opportunity to get away from it all and play. I can't be interrupted by the telephone, I can't be interrupted by unexpected visits (we get a lot of those!) so while I'm at Dy's, I can allow myself to get completely absorbed in messing about...



Last week I posted a few backgrounds I'd made at the play day, today I started to build a couple of pages... I will still add to these two pages, but I like how they're coming together...
I don't know why the colour of the page below isn't showing true but I love these collage images from Dyan's downloads (see button on sidebar) and they are very appropriate for this page as we will be moving to Durham in September, so this page is all about that.




This one shows a new stencil I found - I used the altered originals spray inks to test it - pretty cool don't you think?



And this is a work in progress - I'm MAKING gifts for a few people that I know I won't see very often when we go to Durham and I love this paper from 7Gypsies....



Hope I have more pages to post real soon!

  1. Wowser, SP, the colours are far more vibrant in real life, they are fantabidozy, or however you spell it. I love the remedy for sad days, and the beautiful 7 Gypsies book is looking gorgeous. xx
