Make a Mark for Try it on Tuesday




Hello, well I'm back from holiday and just in time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.  The theme for this fortnight is Make a Mark - abstract pagers, grids, circles, chevrons just to name a few, but I'm sure you will have lots of ideas of your own.

I've used one of my Oxide ink and photo paper backgrounds made with Picked Raspberry.  I've used a stencil with Seedless Preserve and Cracked Pistachio - (although that's not showing too well in the photo) before adding a stamped border, computer words and my 'Best Friends'.

The rest of the Design Team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.

The washing and ironing is done, the family have visited, so hopefully a free day to do some blog visiting and play with some new goodies that I didn't get time to open/ink before I went off.

Have a great day,
Avril xx

I LOVE your humor, Avril. That sentiment was a hoot. It was almost distracting me from the marks you made using that stencil. This was a lovely entry, very vintage inspired and a lot of fun to see, too.
