One of my purchases from the PaperArtsy stand at the Happy Stampers show (Port Sunny) last Saturday was a set of Crayola Slick Stix crayons and today after seeing some lovely inspiration from my friend Hazel (do pop over to her blog) in a FB group we're in I dropped the idea of chores in favour of a playtime, lol!
I decided it was time my lovely little journal, a gift from another fab friend Sam (another blog well worth a visit), was long overdue some tlc.....I still can't get into this journaling lark, lol! Anyway, here is the result and I'm very pleased with it for a first time tryout.
I had already spritzed some left over Fresco Finish sprays I made for another project ages ago and also some stencilled Grunge Paste so I started adding scribbles of the crayons (brown, orange, turquoise/blue and purple with touches of green) and blending them with my finger. I found if I lightly damped my finger on a babywipe I could blend them a little easier. They are water soluble but I didn't want to make them wet in this instance.
When I was happy with the colours ....and I was very happy because I thought it looked very rusty ;-).....I did a little stamping with Archival Inks and 3 PaperArtsy mini stamps I also bought on Saturday.
I stamped the quote from a PA Urban Snapshots set and the final touch was to use some Christine Adolph (for Prima) adhesive rub ons also bought from PaperArtsy on Saturday with some gilding.
I love this little flower mini!
What a lovely playtime that was....much better when you know you're playing hookey ;-)!
See you again soon.
