Be true to you

 Saturday was the stamp show at Port Sunlight.........last week I was finding stuff from the last Port Sunlight show that I had never used so this time I am determined I will use what I bought......I bought this poppy stencil!

 This page is very simple for me but I have to say that I LOVE it!
One of the reasons it's simple is that I didn't want to cover over the background.......I'm really happy with the way it came's just torn strips of masking tape overlapping each other all down the page then rubbed with Pan Pastels.....the edges go darker.....simples!

 Now, I'm not one for inspirational quotes......Facebook is full of them and they drive me nuts......but this one says a lot to me. 
Having spent lots of years working where I couldn't really be true to me it is still a revelation to be able to do

Not had time to try the masking tape but I love it. It adds so much interest and is not overpowering but so effective. Well done Sue for using your products already. Love the poppies and the subtle splatters. Tracy x
