Between Light and Darkness

Well I hope you all survived the last few days and are feeling happy and relaxed!
I certainly do and with the main festivities out of the way, it's just great to relax and journal a bit more. This is the next page in my Prima mixed media album, another canvas page. Hard to stamp on but great for textures... I used different stencils (Crafters Workshop and Dylusions) some Dylusions sprays, Treasure gold and Stewart Gill Byzanthium and Alchemy paints. It was great fun to dig those out of their hiding place where they had been gathering dust for quite a few month.
Here are some details still
Candle drawn with charcoal pencils, white and black.

This is absolutely glorious - your candle drawing is the highlight for me... perfection; and the colours and textures within the canvas are wonderful. So much inspiration, thank you!

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!
