Ten Minute Tuesday - 8 October
Hello there. After nursing a hellish cold for the last ten days and really struggling to do anything much in the way of anything at all never mind creative I finally feel better and raring to go. One thing I did manage to do recently was prep my blank art journal for a new cj Im taking part in with some of the Secret Swappers girls on UK Scrappers. As I was using a blank cheapo moleskine type book the inside front pages did look a bit on the boring side so I got out the paints and made a background using the paper artsy fresco paints. It took me several ten miute bursts over the course of a few days to get it the way I wanted it. I used some of Kate Cranes hand carved stamps. These stamp really well with paint and Im very happy with them. I also slipped in a couple of torn pieces from one of Julie Kirks fab plundered pages packs. I used some pages from a book about calculus - I thought it suited the dont over think it theme of the page. The wording on the page is a message to me and to everyone doing an entry in my journal "Dont over think it Just create" I do haope I can take my own advice as I spend more time fussing over what to do rather than just getting stuck in and getting on with it. Vicki's to see what its all about.
