Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Journal page and a moan

I can't tell you how much I hate this page or how many layers it has - even though I struggle with layering, why create a lovely page and then cover it up? - it has so many layers as I hated it but everytime I put another layer on it looked worse!

There is acrylic paint, sprays, gesso... it seems that a lot of sprays (october challenge, cosmic shimmer mists) flick ink everywhere when you pull the lid off - luckily it hasn't stained anything or anywhere yet but what a pain!

I decided I couldn't make it any worse so I used some ugly paper (paper from card stack which I didn't like - there is usually one) sprayed and stencilled and background stamped it. Then I stamped my sentiment.

It reads - try - it doesn't have to be perfect - just try. Thought it suited this page!

I am now on my 3rd week of being off work ill with a viral infection. I KNOW there are some people at work who will think it's the same as being on holiday but it really isn't! Although those same people will drag themselves in and infect everyone else...

I have to say I'm getting pretty fed up of it - haven't really got the energy to get much done, including crafting so I'm hoping it's on it's way out and I will be back to normal soon

Hope your week is going well and you are not poorly !

I'm so sorry to hear you are still feeling so rough Debs, this years batch of virus' do seem to be hanging about too. Hope you will soon start to see some improvement.

I don't think your page is half as bad as you think it is! HONESTLY. We are (as I've said before) our own worst critic.
