I decided to show two of my journal pages, one in "new" one in "old" style.
Recently I have been feeling I should do some actual painting rather than just collage and stamping and so I made myself create faces and portraits in different styles. You can see a few more of htese in the post below. If I am really honest though I have to say I enjoy both the process and the result of my "old" style better.

I made this box for my sister in law who is expecting a baby on boxing day. I am going to fill it with pampering goodies for her. This because so often all the attention goes to the new baby, but I reckond it would be nice to give her something just for her

Have been so busy making Christmas cards etc that I have hardly blogged at all, but tonight I thought I should do something.
The theme at The Three Muses is Fun and Games. I made a tag. It went through the cuttlebug, was sprayed with various colours glimmermist. Then some gesso was added and finally an image of Itkupilli. The cheeky look on te girl's face suggested fun and games to me...
