Journal page and a card.


Been seeing so many lovely inspirational pieces around, you know the ones you just want to 'do', right up my street, so here is my journal, I had previously added some dp I had played around with and stencilled some cogs on, then I saw what I saw and got the distress ink out and had a play around on some white cardstock.{ I do soon get distracted....}

Then searched for my TH stampers anon; set of stamps which I don't use half  as much as I should, and got stamping and splashing, one thing I really don't like, I think I got abit heavy with the darker ink so for me it was spoiled, anyway I still had the other half of the card so thought it would make a nice card.

So decided to splash some white ink this time and see if it helped abit, I think it did, and btw the other dragonfly/butterfly, never sure, was stamped onto vellum, it was already coloured so matched up well.

The sentiment stamp is a set from creative stamps.

There we go, a very long story which could've been shorter but still, haha.

Onto the weather, well its still sizzling, but how many got that awful storm last night, I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it in real life, it was so bad and this morning its actually power washed the paint off one of my planters, I kid you not, like a mini hurricane...I also had a touch of heat stroke last night and felt so ill so today I am inside, doors open and fan on, not worth my health especially when you have lung problems.

That's all for now ladies, I hope you are all well and enjoying the days so far, take care though...

Just GOrgeous! LOve your de4sign Janette.
This butterfly looks as though it's just decided to land...FABulous in vellum.
No thunderstorms here! Saw one on Sunday, but, that's been it.
Take care x

What a gorgeous piece Janette, I love the colours and the splatters are perfect, not too dark at all, and the butterfly wings popped up are beautiful, love it all..gosh, watch that heat business, were you outside in it, I don't go outside much in the Summer, I hate the heat,I love the Winter, and besides our Winters are nothing like yours, we even had a rather cool Summer??..take care.

Take good care, Janette. Heat can for sure do a number on you. Both of your spreads are gorgeous! I love the color palette you used and that butterfly is so elegant.

Chris said...

I love them both Janette, beautiful stamping! I have that lovely set of TH stamps and I'm ashamed to say they've hardly been used, I love these arty/grungey stamps but I'm not really very confident with them- other people seen to have such wonderful ideas and the knack of getting the backgrounds just right- you definitely do! Love the use of the vellum and subtle colours on the card, totally gorgeous.
Sorry to hear the heat is affecting your health, it's a shame to have to be indoors when you love outdoors so much but better to be sensible. Keep cool and take care.

Those pages are brilliant Janette. That is a great stamp and you have used it so beautifully. No rain here yet though it is due today and tomorrow and our Nephew is getting married tomorrow so I am hoping it waits till they at least get your photos done. Enjoy your weekend and I promise to be back more regular!!
