Hi there, just a quick post this week as work has been mega-hectic lately & I am trying to get an early night as I have to be on the train to London by 6am tomorrow - off to an all day food photography shoot for some of our products launching this Autumn.
So all quiet on my desk this week - just a few charms & large beads destined for something altered !
A couple of ATC's and a tube of paint.
The paint is clue to last weekend's crafty activities !
Oh and planting out a lovely hot coral echinacea & a lemon flowered coreopsis which leapt into my arms in Carmarthen market & begged for a happy home!
On Saturday, Rich & I ventured into a bargain shop as he was looking for coat hangers.
We had never used the shop before & it was an eclectic mix of goods - but I did spot some great bargains that were just calling to me to be altered !
So as the rain came down on Sunday I was gesso-ing & painting some things to be altered further - starting next weekend !
Here they all are - drying in the rain !
A photo frame, a sign, a little clock - all for less than a fiver ! And a money box which I had had for ages.
Hoping to get more creative with these in the coming weeks !
My friend Lynda & I have a Journal Challenge underway - to create a page out of this stamp which we both love !
I have no idea why she reminded me of this song - the Whole of the Moon by the Waterboys.
I love this song & now I can't stop it keep playing over & over in my head !!!
So I took the opportunity to use a new embossing folder & to play with a brayer & use my new Kaleidoscope ink pad - both of which I bought at Newbury earlier in the month!
So here's my challenge page ...
And I have decided to put my small ATC collection on the side of my cabinet rather than shove them unseen in a drawer - so my little collection is here to show you !
Have a great week ! Ali x
