Hopes and Dreams


Hello, more experimenting in my new little journal, again using the stamps from Oxford Impressions April in Paris.  I gave both pages a very watery wash with Tattered Rose distress stain and used Pumice stone for the stencilling and shading and distress crayons for colouring the stencilled roses and leaves.

Thanks for calling in, have a great day,
Avril xx

Beautiful work here Avril and it reminds me of an old Victorian photo album. The subtle colour on the roses looks really pretty and I like the use of the black and white photographs too. What a wonderful little Journal. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
