The shipment arrived with all of my crafting supplies and everything else.  Boy there was a lot to unpack and with general other stuff getting in the way it has taken me until today to finally get my craft room straight.  Shelves bought and erected, desk bought and erected and everything crafty finally unpacked and some semblance of order!!!  Well to me anyway.

So today I got out my journal and my dylusion sprays and just had a play.  I was a bit worried that my mojo had disappeared and that it would need some encouragement to come back.  Once I got started though, and made a few errors - looking at a dylusions spray whilst attempting to unblock the nozzle with a pin is really not a good idea - I did manage to get out of the way just in time - well I think my jumper has survived lol!!  You would think having done that once that I would have learnt my lesson but no!!  Still not quite sure how my cream jumper has stayed cream.  Serves me right for not covering up, I just feel a bit inhibited when I wear an apron in the kitchen let alone whilst crafting!!

So here is today's play, nothing out of the ordinary I am afraid but hopefully I will be back up with more regular posts.  

The inks I used were all dylusions and colours used are: fresh lime, lemon zest, squeezed orange and melted chocolate.  I was having a play with my new stencil from Georgina Ford. (It's great living close to The Artistic Stamper!!) This is the bit done in the melted chocolated. The lighter stencilling is done with grunge paste tinted with lemon zest and the stencil is Tim Holtz.  The words are from Tim Holtz and the clock is paper artsy as is the feather stamp.

As always do let me have your comments.  It's always good to hear what people think.  Thanks for visiting take care.
