Busy but creative week

Had two days off this week, managed to fill them to the brim with all the things I dont have time to do in a normal week, a lie-in, a hair cut (no photos sorry) an opticians visit, I need glasses sob sob (I had noticed that I was having to move my head back to bring small type into focus, yes age has finally caught up to my eyes :( ), oh and the normal food shopping, but Friday was better I took myself off to Bluewater, where there was a craft show in the Glow, it was Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft, very poorly advertised I thought, as I only knew it was on because of Leandra at PaperArtsy, I had prayed for the snow to hold off so I could still get to it, and my prayers were answered.  There were lots of stalls dealing with the more normal crafty stuff, and some dealing with Peel offs galore, didnt stop there, thank gawd Paper Artsy was there, great to catch up with Leandra and Lin, had time for quite a chat, but when I popped round to say goodbye had to sneak off as they were very busy demonstrators.  Did go up to the Creative Stitches part of the show for a snoop round and found a fabulous textile artist Kim Thittachai, very impressive so bought some stuff from there to have a play with.

Anyway so the snow has arrived, but looks like I will still be able to get to work tomorrow, that wasnt in the prayer LOL, so obligatory snow picture, went out in a t-shirt, (think I was having a hot moment . . LOL)

and then to some paint have been making some journal backgrounds this week, not aiming to finish just to get some started

watched a Dyan Reavely video from CHA and used her techniques to get a double page spread going, lots of water, spray and smoosh pages together and away you go . .

this page is also waiting finishing, not sure if I have blogged it already, soz if I have.

Have great weeks everyone  . . xx

Awesome silhouette journal pages, m'dear - did you buy stencils or cut round a magazine image and use as a mask? Show us what fabric/stitch stash you bought then!
