Pages from my art journal

This year I decided to do an art journal while away on my holidays. As it turned out we forgot our camera (how stupid is that), so all the more reason to get the old water colours out and do some good old fashioned sketching. Gosh, had not done that for years and years. Makes you realize how much you actually see, when you take the time to sit and sketch, so different from just snapping pickies. I always sketched in a small book with a soft pencil, while we were out and about and then used those sketches to create my journal back at our gite. Had great fun doing it, though i'm not entirely sure about the results. Ah well, it's very different from my other stuff as you can see.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
