Bah humbug !!!!!

Yes its halloween, but all this trick and treating is an american tradition, not ours, I think its just another con by the retailers to make us buy lots of tut, bah humbug.


How miserable am I........     :(

Anyway, busy busy week, am on a bank course next week and have a ton of things to learn before I attend, they make you do a test as soon as you arrive and if you fail you are sent home, how embarrasing, so am working really hard to avoid that scenario. Also dreading the travelling as it is in  the City for three days, so I've got to be up at the crack of dawn each day to get there. So will definitely be AWOL next week, unless of course the embarrassing scenario happens, (please god noooooooooooooooooo)

This week I have done some more purchasing, its Dyan's fault who did a link to some great new digi images, by The Octopode Factory, I couldnt resist and bought the Alice inWonderland set, decided to do a journal page, trying some new techniques, like the edging, how hard is it to get a black pen to work over acrylics, think I killed my black sharpie, ended up using a uni ball which flowed lovely,what pen does everyone else use?

I am pleased with the result the sort of grungey pastel effect, have even put it as my background image on my mobly, its my own personal art gallery, haha

Anyway wishing you all a brilliant week and cross your fingers for me on Wednesday.
