Something Bright and Cheerful!

 Hello there and how are you all doing?

It's tough at the moment with all this freezing cold weather about here in the UK.  At least during the first lockdown, we were able to get out in some sunshine for some lovely walks, so roll on April is what I say!  The plus side is that we have more time to craft, which always makes me happy.

As I have quite a large stock of my handmade cards, I'm enjoying my art journaling at the moment and it gives me the chance to use some of the unused stamps that I have.  I have quite a few that I love but that aren't really suitable for card making, so this is a great way of giving them some much needed love and attention.  Here's a page that I've made this week using stamps by Visible Image:

I started off by using rainbow colours of Brushos and then used various stamps to make the page.  I wanted something bright and cheerful Once the stamping was finished, I used a VI stencil to create a little more interest in the background.  I'm loving how this turned out and the colour really is that vibrant.  I just need to make another one now to go opposite to it in my journal.

That's all from me for today, so stay safe and take care of yourselves until we can chat again xx

OK I'm a bit late, but I'm worth waiting for!! The Chaos flower is one of my favourites and I love what you've done with it. I'm always going to like brushos. VI stamps are always interesting and 'arty'. Can we have some more please?

Bendy cat is finding his 'snow feet' useful at the moment (he has special tufts of fur between his 'toes' which seems to be a norweigan forest cat thing). Wish I had something similar I'm slipping all over the shop.

Gorgeous page. I almost pulled that stamp out yesterday, but decided against it, even though it's one of my favourites. Love the colours you used. Journalling is a great way of giving yourself free reign and expressing yourself in a different way. It's beautiful.
