Tomorrow I'll be off to Ireland for 2 and a half weeks. I probably won't have much access to the internet. Every year I toss about what and how much in the way of art materials to take. Usually I play in a journal. This year I thought I'd make my own Smash book, just to see whether I like using that sort of thing.(They seem to be very popular right now).The plan is just to use "finds" i.e. tickets etc and scraps. I made different sections for my smash book, one for notes, one for ideas, one for things to keep. one for sketches and a few more including a "random" one for anything else. I had great fun making my book with may different kinds and types of paper, a load of pockets and spaces for tags and things to stick in of course. Here is the cover. The image I could not resist using is a freebie from my wonderful friend Terri, you can find her website here. See you all when I get back on the 22nd.
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!
