Ten Minute Tuesday (on a Thursday!)

I really enjoyed joining in with Vicki's ten minute Tuesday last week and had a go again this Tuesday but its taken me until today to blog it oops!

Another wee background started for my A6 seaside  journal. a bit basic but.I can build on it.  I used neocolours and scribbled on the page then ran over it with a wet paintbrush.  It was the first time I had used these and I dont think they really liked the fact that I had gessoed the background.  I think they will probably work better on watercolour paper.

I then sponged yellow paint through a stencil on the top right to represent the sun and stamped along the bottom with this fab stamp I bought recently - I think its by Lost Coast Designs to represent the sea.  I coloured in some of the bubble shapes with my white Uniball Signo pen, I love it , its the best white pen I have tried so far.

It needs some more work then I will post a piccy of the finished page but its not too bad for ten minutes work.

Hop on over to Vicki's Place and see the fab background she has made this with with her ten minutes.

Oops piccie is on its side but its too fiddly on my phone to rotate round - sigh!


  1. tuesday, thursday... ten minutes is ten minutes. Thanks for joining me again! Another great page underway. That stamp is perfect for it. Vicki x

  2. Love this - it really does make me think of a beach and the sea. I'm such a slow coach I don't think I'd get anything done in 10 minutes but I might give it a go, just to see!

  3. This looks fabulous! I LOVE that stamped part!!!
