Well that's the holiday in Spain over - great fun with our friends in Madrid & then down in Murcia. Can't really claim it was chilling out as the temperatures hit over 40oC most days !
Back to Wales with a bump - rain, rain, rain as usual !
My team from work were running our annual BBQ for farmers up at the Royal Welsh Show yesterday - and got drenched - again much as usual ! Still we had fun despite the weather & still smelling of BBQ smoke despite several sessions in the shower since !
On my craft desk this week is the makings of a project using those beer mats ! I've had this set of lovely tree stamps for a while but not done anything very much with them - so I'm trying for a layered canvass of the trees through the seasons - I'm going to try stamping onto tissue paper & then added them onto the mats - not something I've tried before - just read about. Not sure if I should colour/ distress ink the stamped images on the tissue before sticking down - or will it just run like mad ... anyone got any thoughts - all advice welcome ?
Also I have a tub of Acrylic Gel Medium - should I use this to stick them down ?
Of course I did manage to find the one stamping stall at the Royal yesterday - Oyster Stamping - and on the edge on my desk you can see the new Martha Stewart punches that I couldn't resist & a couple more Smooch Inks too - and with Distress Inks at 3 for £10 - how could I not add to my collection !
Happy Wednesday - looking forward to browsing some of your desks later !
