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.
I will blog my own entry for this cj later on in the week If you fancy joining in with Ten Minute Tuesdays then hop over to Vicki's to see what its all about.


  1. I think that's advice we could all do with taking

  2. I love this page and it sums up my problem so well!

  3. Beautiful pages Suzy. I start out with good intentions and then I keep going back to stuff, just to give it a little tweak - I really should learn when to leave well alone as I might actually get more done.
