Bank Holiday Crafting

Well happy Easter everyone, hope you've all had some good times both in the craft room and with your families, I've been playing with my Inktense pencils and blocks when it was me time. I practised colouring in with the pencils on some Octopode Factory images, and have ended up ordering some more pencils from AFTH which hopefully will arrive next week sometime.  Once I'd coloured the images I tried some ideas I'd thought of to use the Inktense blocks in a different way, they didn't work, LOL, so they are filed in the maybe another day pile. Then moved onto swiping the blocks across a tag and then painting it out, topped with Picket Fence distress stains through a stencil, a few of Dyans vines and after trying to find a Tweedledee and Tweedledum quote, found this stamps which went well with my sons bus ticket from that morning.

Liked the effect of the background so much, decided to try the technique on a journal page, don't know that this picture gives the full effect of the page, but I'm pleased with it, found the picture last night and the perfect quote today after getting peed off with the rest of the family, 4 days together is a challenge LOL.

anyway crafting time is over, time to think family finances and dinner.
