Summer Time

It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time we're asking you show us what Summer Time means to you.

I've used some magazine freebie stamps from last year to create a little scene, The beach looks deserted and peaceful, so somebody is taking notice of social distancing!!

The Design Team have some great interpretations of Summer Time, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.

I am going to add this to Art Journal Journey and Erika's theme of When it's Hot.

Birthday Tag

Some play time today and trying to get my act together, I've made a tag for Tag Tuesday, where the current challenge is 'Add a Sentiment'.  It's also a way of getting organised, it's DD's birthday in a few weeks, so I'll attach a pocket at the back of this tag to hold money.
I used Bundled Sage, Squeezed Lemonade and Ice spruce Oxide inks on the background, along with stenciling and stamping in Ice Spruce.  The sentiment is a really old one that I found in a drawer during a recent 'tidy'.

I am also entering at Allsorts - Something beginning with B - Bloom and Bow

Have a great weekend,

Use Book Pages at Try it on Tuesday

The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is to Use Book Pages. 

I've used my new ALL & Create stunning 'Bird of Paradise' image, along with some of the words from the set to create my page.  The gessoed background was stamped with Circled numbers in Versamark and heat embossed with White before spraying with  inks and dabbing with a Baby wipe to move the colour and then adding my fussy cut image.  I've torn 'instructions' from a very old gardening book to complete the page.

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

As my page features a plant that requires heat/hot countries and is native in South Africa, I am entering at Art Journal Journey  where Erika has chosen WHEN  IT'S  HOT as this months theme.

I'can't believe it's two weeks since I last blogged,  I don't know where the time has gone and what little time I've had in the craft room I've been playing with my new goodies, which on the good side has given my mojo a bit of a boost.

Hope to catch up with you soon,
Avril xx
