Back from France








We got back from France yesterday. Had a great time with lots of wonderful warm weather and relaxation. Of course I had taken some art supplies and a journal, so I'll show some of the pages. Not all of them have the journalling on them yet. I used a lot of local bits and pieces for my collages in this journal, taken from leaflets, serviettes, paper bags and whatever else I could find. It was great fun looking out for things to use.

'Back from France' has a wonderful ring to it. I love France. Your mixed media pieces are lovely. It is fun to take snippets from areas where we travel. You did a super job!

Astrid you're back and with such wonderful art journaling. I have missed seeing your beautiful and inspirational work, and whilst I know envy is BAD I must confess to deep envy at these superb journal pages.

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!
