Saturday's workout "Tissue"


The theme at SaWo is Tissue this week. The idea was to create a background with the feel of old leather. As it so happens, I had to do a journal page for Round Robin journal that I am involved in on the theme of Woman. I decided to combine the two and create my page with this particular technique. Around the edges I journalled some words and attributes that I associate with the theme of "Woman". I did not think about it much intellectually, i just let the words flow as they came into my mind in no particular sequence or order. The embellishments are grungeboard coloured with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and pigment metallic ink.

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!
