Stay Inspired & Stay Safe!

Because of this hop and the severe restrictions of lockdown in Melbourne, I have been trying to find myself different projects every day just to keep me going!

I am writing this on September 26th  but it is still  Day 50 of Leigh's hop - so I have, yes, one more post...

This is me really playing...

I have just been playing with a couple of new things and one of my journals...

This was a 'use up my paint' page - I added some torn up bits of Dina Wakley collage paper to it with matte gel medium.

I then started printing with my new mini gel plates directly on to the pages making rectangles and ovals. I then overprinted these through Tim Holtz stencils with a different colour.
 What fun!

And look at my 'stamping off paper' - lovely - this is some greaseproof paper which I will be able to cut out and add to my journal as collage pieces!

Thank you Mel for these tips at the September Virtual Retreat with Hillbilly Scrappin!

Next I stamped with black Versafine and foam stamps.

Then I added some Bee Arty sentiments and person.

Finally I added a bit of pen work and some white splatters using Dina Wakley white gloss spray.

I  will add this to Leigh's Linky

Wow... 15 minutes to go!!

Happy Crafting!
