My new journal!

It was a 'big' day for me yesterday putting ink to my new journal. It looked so fresh and clean when I picked it up; I just didn't want to 'spoil' it!  The first page is now inked and I can't wait to learn more and do more!! 

I hope I can inspire you to make that 'first' mark in your empty journal... It's so liberating!  Don't forget, it's your journal... You can't go wrong; although you might change your mind! Just remember you can add more, more ink, more paint, add embellishments, butterflies, flowers... You really can't go wrong!  Let your hands and heart show you the way!  And ENJOY!  X

I would love to hear about your first page... X

Clarity Stamp Challenge August 2013

Inspired by all the recent talk regarding the Gelli Plate, I thought I get mine out for a play... I slowly built up the layers, starting with iridescent white and cadmium Red I pushed my butterfly stamp into the wet acrylic and pulled off the first print.  I charged my Gelli with copper acrylic and used it as an ink pad.  I also used gold and bronze acrylic to really give the picture depth.  

I found the Stamp very easy to clean in lightly soaped water.

I must say, I enjoyed that (and made several other backgrounds whilst I was there!
