NEW STAMPS.....NEW JOURNAL
Late last week I got some new stamps, I went a bit mad and bought four sets of Halloween/Autumn stamps; because I couldn't decide which ones to get I got them all! They are all by Inkadinkado and are available from THE STAMP ATTIC.
I also got a new journal which I am going to keep to the Halloween/Autumn theme that I love so much.
So, I have been waiting for a bit of time to play with them, I finished off my latest Craft Stamper project today and off it went in the post so I settled in for some play time!
I LOVE this skull stamp, I think it is so clever with the words set into one side of it. It is combined here with some rub-ons I found in the drawer the other day.
This page came about from the scrap pad I work on. The cherish words were already on there from something else and I stamped the stars and 2 different skulls next to the words just to try them out really but then I liked the way it looked so tore it out and stuck it into the journal. The extra colour around the torn piece is oil pastels.......another new toy!
This page started in a similar way to the previous one........the paint circles were already on the pad so I stamped the Ravens Gate image over them and then coloured in the background. Torn out and then stuck in the journal.
Letters are drawn through a stencil and again the colour is oil pastels.
