Anything Goes at FSC

Well it's a challenge you all love over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight and as long as your project includes some real stamping then it will be eligible

I would like to join in with Simon Says Stamp and Show's 'Passport to Fun" challenge with this album. Lets take a look at what I have included.

I have made a little album for my trip to California so that I can add any memorabilia I pick up over the holiday and keep all together and hopefully journal at the same time.

I started by blending DIs, flicking water and drying it then stamping using the Tim Holtz Travel Ways stamps.

The next layer included a Tim blueprint stamp mounted,  some die-cut letters and numbers and his new rub-ons. They go on so easily, by far the best I have ever used.

To give me a bit of a head start I have added some pockets ........

..... masking ........

.... tissue tape and more stamps.

So let's see if I am managing to keep it while I am away, I should be able to as we are staying with friends.

Thanks for popping in, have a wonderful Sunday and I hope some time to create.

Do you believe in fairies?

Another week has past by and I am in California, away on a break staying with friends near Los Angeles where we have been experiencing some high temperatures in the 90s.

So time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week's theme is 'Fairyland', I have altered a frame using some PanPastel colours, gesso and Maimeri light modelling paste all available from Your Creativity Store who is our regular sponsor and will provide a PanPastel starter set as the winner's prize.

The dragonfly has been embossed using black EP and I have added some tiny beads and picket fence crackle paint over the modelling paste.

Have a wonderful Sunday and hopefully some creative time for yourself.

Take care.
